Donald Trump has done a lot of insane things in his lifetime — even more so over the course of the last several years, through his multiple presidential campaigns, his presidential term, and the absolute manic disaster that has been his post-presidential life.
Some of the things that have come out of his mouth or his fingertips through pressers, events, rallies, and social media posts have been enough to truly make your skin crawl and leave you wondering, “How in the Hell did we end up here?”
You also can’t help but wonder how in the Hell the man continues to get away with the things he does and says.
But this one… This one is perhaps the worst we’ve ever seen. This one crossed a line that I don’t believe even Donald J. Trump himself will be able to come back from.

If there is anything that the Right loves to quote, lean on, invoke in their outlandish, insane, dangerous, and violent rhetoric, it’s the Founding Fathers and the US Constitution. They truly believe that they are patriots, they are the “keepers” of this devout, purist law.
Their own “leader” is now openly and publicly calling for the termination of that very law of the land.
Recently, news broke that Twitter allegedly removed and suppressed tweets that were unflattering of President Joe Biden’s controversial son Hunter in the runup to the 2020 presidential election — including social media posts that allegedly featured pornographic images of the First Son.
The scandal-ridden former president took to his own struggling social media platform with his reaction to this news, which we frankly knew would be unhinged, at best. However, even we didn’t quite expect the former president of the United States to openly, publicly, and shamelessly call for the “termination” of the United States Constitution.
Yet, that is precisely what Trump did.
Taking to Truth Social, the scandal-ridden, corrupt ex-president wrote:
So, with the revelation of MASSIVE & WIDESPREAD FRAUD & DECEPTION in working closely with Big Tech Companies, the DNC, & the Democrat Party, do you throw the Presidential Election Results of 2020 OUT and declare the RIGHTFUL WINNER, or do you have a NEW ELECTION? A Massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution. Our great ‘Founders’ did not want, and would not condone, False & Fraudulent Elections!”
This is far from the first time that Donald Trump has openly called for his reinstatement to the US presidency on the basis of… Nothing. However, this does serve as the first time that Trump has acknowledged the fact that to do that, would mean directly violating the highest law in this land And it’s the first time he has called on this country to do just that.
New York Times reporter Peter Baker took to Twitter to weigh in on this development and said what we’re all thinking, as he pointed out that this particular Truth Social post marks a highly dangerous and frankly terrifying milestone in Donald Trump’s ongoing public mental breakdown.
“Needless to say, can’t think of a time in the United States when a former president (and would-be future president) has called for suspending the Constitution to let him seize power,” Baker wrote. “Even after all the shocks of the last few years, this one is remarkable.”

To be frank, this should terrify you, regardless of what side of the political fence you sit on.
