    Democrats in Congress (the only federal elected offices they still hold) are mocking Republicans for cheering Trump’s executive orders when they criticized Obama’s. They’re trying to launch the meme, “Remember when conservatives hated executive orders?”

    Of course, you could just as easily turn that around and say, “Remember when Democrats loved executive orders? I believe it was right up until last Friday at noon EST.”

    Like so many oft-retweeted things out of Washington these days, this is a fake story.

    As the link points out, Obama started his Administration the same way Trump is – with executive orders undoing his predecessor’s agenda – and Republicans didn’t try to stop him. It was only after he began trying to usurp Congress’ power by issuing unconstitutional executive orders that defied or rewrote legislation that the complaints and lawsuits started flying. If Trump starts doing that, I suspect he’ll face the kind of backlash from his own party that Obama never had to worry about.

    Sincerely,

    Mike Huckabee

    I'm a communist.
    I find anything reeking of capitalism misguided and the mere concept that something is only worthwhile if it's profitable, is sick and empty.

    So yeah, the dems to me are right-wing vicious scum.
