Yes, He Can: Trumpicus Can Order Governors To Open Churches…

…thanks to the Progressives.

Mark Knoller Tweeted:

Yes, he can order Governors to open the churches under the ‘Peaceful Assembly’ Clause of the First Amendment because of the Left’s insistence of applying The Incorporation Doctrine over the past century.

The Left brought this on themselves with the help of Useful Idiots on The Right who favored a more Centralized Power And Control.

As Wikipedia gets right:

Incorporation, in United States law, is the doctrine by which portions of the Bill of Rights have been made applicable to the states. When the Bill of Rights was ratified, the courts held that its protections extended only to the actions of the federal government and that the Bill of Rights did not place limitations on the authority of the state and local governments. However, the post-Civil War era, beginning in 1865 with the Thirteenth Amendment, which declared the abolition of slavery, gave rise to the incorporation of other Amendments, applying more rights to the states and people over time. Gradually, various portions of the Bill of Rights have been held to be applicable to the state and local governments by incorporation through the Fourteenth Amendment in 1868 and the Fifteenth Amendment in 1870.

Guarantee of freedom of assembly

Guarantee of freedom of expressive association

    • This right, though not in the words of the first amendment, was first mentioned in the case NAACP v. Alabama, 357 U.S. 449 (1958)[29] and was at that time applied to the states. See also Roberts v. United States Jaycees, 468 U.S. 609 (1984), where the U.S. Supreme Court held that “implicit in the right to engage in activities protected by the First Amendment” is “a corresponding right to associate with others in pursuit of a wide variety of political, social, economic, educational, religious, and cultural ends.”

So to those on the Left complaining about what Trumpicus Pompey Maximus has done: you brought it on your Goddamn selves.

    I’m pretty sure Trump asked his advisors before hand if he could make such a statement and make it stick.

    For all the seemingly dumb things the media accuse him of saying, Trump isn’t stupid. I think he is probably the greatest Troll to ever grace the internet.
