At the risk of stating the obvious, Donald Trump cannot “terminate” the Constitution. In fact he can’t do any of the things he threatens to do these days. He’s powerless. His status as a former President doesn’t somehow give him magic powers, no matter how much the media has spent the past two years trying to convince him that he’s omnipotent.
Should you despise Trump? Yes, certainly. Should you condemn him? Absolutely, as needed. Should you panic and cower? Of course not. He says this stuff to get you to panic and cower.
Your job at this point is to find a way to loudly call him out and condemn his inappropriate behavior, while also loudly pointing out that he can’t actually do any of the things he’s threatening to do, and laughing loudly in his face about his upcoming indictment. This is important, because we have to make sure no one out there mistakenly cowers to him at this late date in his downfall. Trying to scare us into paralysis is all Trump has left.
