Despite wrapping herself in the American flag and spouting the words of the founders in her preamble to the sham impeachment, Nancy Pelosi and her fellow Democrats have proved conclusively in their words and actions that they have no use for the U.S. Constitution. This is not something that the Dems would freely own up to. In fact, they would reject the notion. Yet, it’s come through despite their best efforts to conceal it.
Early in the Senate trial, House manager Jerrold Nadler upbraided the president’s defense team for falling back on “executive privilege or other nonsense” as their justification for not subpoenaing former national security adviser John Bolton. The highlighted phrase became something of a rallying cry among the White House attorneys.
Another example of the Democrats’ contempt for the Constitution came last night, emanating from the lips of far-left Democratic Sen. Mazie Hirono, of Hawaii, who in an interview with MSNBC referred derisively to the “nice, little, legal, constitutional defenses” the Trump defense team had devised throughout the trial. Watch:

These unforced errors by Democrats are not slips of the tongue. They reflect the party’s true disdain for the Constitution. This was evident as far back as the presidency of Barack Obama, who found the Constitution wanting. Obama, you may recall, argued early his presidency for the need for “empathy” in the administration of our nation’s law. Understanding the nebulousness of such terms, the founders wisely avoided them. It is worth noting in closing that in the unlikely event Joe Biden were to become the next president, he would nominate Obama to fill a putative Supreme Court vacancy.
