Assuming all of you reading this made it as far as, say, the fifth grade, you’re well aware of what a constitutional amendment is. In fact all of you can name multiple amendments off the top of your head.
The good news for you is that you know more about the Constitution than some of the people running the United States government do. For instance, Republican Congresswoman Lauren Boebert tweeted this today: “Protecting and defending the Constitution doesn’t mean trying to rewrite the parts you don’t like.”
Wow. Really? She doesn’t know that the Constitution can be amended, and in fact has been amended repeatedly? She’s got to be trolling us, right? She can’t be this stupid. Can she? Then again, this week she unwittingly revealed that she doesn’t know how her own guns work, so anything is possible.
