Yes. Sounds like a man saying sure, Trump isn't what his mentalist cult followers wanted him to be, the great failed white hope. They put their eggs in a billionaires basket. 😁😁🥚
They should not have... Slime and sleeze and assumptions of complete power weren't the best tactics if one wanted to undo Obama cluster forks.
Barrs basically saying Trump had no "business" in the executive branch of the United States of America.
The fact is, that, yes, while the president has certainly thrown out the traditional beltway playbook and punctilio, he was upfront about what he was going to do and the people decided that he was going to serve as president."

He makes a strong argument for returning the presidency to strong monarchical power. Having a strong executive is almost as important as having corporatist judges. Like the theory of evolution, the separation of power theorists are just stating a theory. He's right in showing the legislative branches of our government cause the most harm. The strong executive is the only answer. He makes a very good argument for a totalitarian government based on authoritarianism.

DanDanDat nailed, which is why I say Trump is not the one to pull it off. A strong President could call a joint session, go over Article 1, say this is how it is and is going to be. Think on it the rest of the day and have resignations on my desk by 8am if you can’t do it because at 9am those doors to the chamber will be locked and anyone not inside is out. Because we will be rebuilding America in here with legislation and signing bills into law.
First hundred days? The new benchmark is going to be the first hundred hours for taking care of business.

He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Departments.
Article II, Section 3 both grants and constrains presidential power. This Section invests the President with the discretion to convene Congress on “extraordinary occasions,” a power that has been used to call the chambers to consider nominations, war, and emergency legislation. It further grants the President the authority to adjourn Congress whenever the chambers cannot agree when to adjourn, a power that no President has ever exercised.
Finally, and most significantly, Section 3 contains the Faithful Execution Clause, commonly known as the Take Care Clause. The Take Care Clause is arguably a major source of presidential power because it seemingly invests the office with broad enforcement authority. Yet, at the same time, the provision also serves as a major limitation on that power because it underscores that the executive is under a duty to faithfully execute the laws of Congress and not disregard them.
