Annals of toadyism


This is a thing that exists:

Ask any liberal—and many moderate conservatives—and they’ll tell you that Donald Trump is a threat to the rule of law as delineated by the U.S. Constitution. Mainstream media outlets have gleefully reported fresh examples of alleged executive overreach or authoritarian rhetoric nearly every day of his presidency. In the 2020 primaries, the candidates seem to be competing over who can paint the most frightening picture of how the president is jeopardizing our nation’s very existence.

Fortunately, the alarmists are flat-out wrong. In Defender in Chief, celebrated constitutional scholar John Yoo makes an airtight case against Trump’s supposed disdain for constitutional rules and norms. Far from being an inherent threat to our nation’s founding principles, Donald Trump has actually done more to uphold the Constitution and defend it from those who would like to see it weakened than any president in a generation.

In this authoritative and engaging work, Yoo will present a plethora of evidence to debunk the false narrative of executive overreach that has surrounded the Trump administration. To the contrary, he will prove that even Trump’s most controversial actions are more in line with the Founding Fathers’ vision of the executive branch than those of his recent predecessors. This book is required reading for any Trump supporter looking for a compelling, intellectually-sound defense of the president’s ideas

There’s certainly a spot on my bookshelf for this, right next to The Faith of Donald J. Trump, and It Puts the Lotion on Its Skin or It Gets the Hose: The Love Poetry of Donald J. Trump.

Reminder: John Yoo is a major war criminal who is paid $400,000 per year by the people of the state of California.

. . . Here’s John Yoo on the same topic in 2017, putting forth the diametrically opposite argument. What could have possibly happened in the interim to change his mind so radically? I have a guess, and I bet you do too!
