While many Americans may not completely grasp the constitutional overreach President Obama and his administration have displayed amid the imminent Iranian nuclear deal, one person is certainly not letting their actions go unchecked. In one of her infamous “off the record” segments, Greta Van Susteren schooled Obama on the Constitution, reprimanding him over his administration’s hesitation to put a potential agreement with Iran to vote in Congress.
Although we are told Obama is a “constitutional law professor,” it seems he needs to revisit law school, and Van Susteren gave him a quick and to the point refresher. With Van Susteren also attending and teaching law school and studying the same Constitution Obama did, she had the knowledge to put the president in his place for his tyrannical behavior, giving him a lesson he has apparently forgotten.
“Let’s all go ‘Off the Record’ for a minute. President Obama and I both have this common: We both went to it and taught at law school,” she said. “He studied the same Constitution I did — ours, the United States. So tonight, a Constitutional law refresher for all of us, including and mostly for, President Obama.”
For those unaware, according to the Constitution which governs our country and gives the president his power, he alone does not have the authority to single-handedly make a deal with Iran.
“Article two, Section two, Clause two of the Constitution includes the treaty clause, which empowers the president to propose and negotiate agreements between the United States and other nations which become treaties after – yes, after – the advice and consent of a super majority of the U.S. Senate. Now, that means the president has no power to make a deal solely with Iran. Solely alone, he can’t do that.” (emphasis mine.)
Driving home the point that this seems to be something the current administration is ignoring and what our government is doing is unconstitutional, she played a clip of White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest saying “the administration is hesitant to come to Congress with an agreement before doing so with Iran,” according to Western Journalism.
“Ultimately, we can’t put in place an additional hurdle for that agreement to overcome here at the eleventh hour,” Earnest said at a press conference.
Did you catch that? Earnest, representing our White House, refers to our Constitution as a hurdle. Luckily Van Susteren wasn’t going to let him get away with it.
“Hurdle? That clause is not a hurdle,” Van Susteren responded. “Josh Earnest may think it trivial, but I don’t. It’s the Constitution, to be respected and adhered to.”
