Barry’s nobel violates the Constitution

I’d seen this argument before but not including the Constitution’s full text:

Article I, Section 9, of the Constitution, the emolument clause, clearly stipulates: "And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince or foreign State." 

Nor is the money his to give away. Barry thus can’t legally accept either, especially since they were intended to influence his future actions. Course his party is in control of Congress, so they could consent for him if they want to.

  1. The Constitution? Since when did the government pay any attention to that?
    John Adams was the first to abandon it when it was inconvenient. It’s been getting more common ever since.
    Now, we are practically on our own with no Constitution to protect us, and the hilarious thing is, we ASKED for it.

  2. I think most of the others have been controversial. This one is plain to see.
