Steve Mnuchin Repeatedly Suggests Trump Should Violate Constitution During Fox Interview


Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin appeared
on FOX News this past weekend to discuss the recently passed spending bill that Donald
Trump signed, but Donald Trump was totally not cool with signing it even though he did
it anyway. Steve Mnuchin had to go on FOX News to explain
this away and make Donald Trump’s case for him. Unfortunately for Mnuchin, the fact that he
knows nothing about the federal government or the laws of this country was on full display
and Chris Wallace, FOX News host, was not afraid to let him know that. Take a look. But the Democrats demanded a massive increase
in non-military spending. That’s gonna balloon the deficit and that’s
something we’re gonna have to deal with. I was gonna say, that’s gonna happen next
time when the next spending bill comes up in October. They’re gonna be demanding parity, as well. I’m not saying that’s right or wrong, but
it is reality. It doesn’t need to be reality and I’m not
gonna comment on what the president will do. But as you heard him say, he’s not planning
on doing this again. I think they should give the president a line
item veto. These things- -unconstitutional by the Supreme Court, sir. Well, again, Congress could pass a rule that
allows them to do it. No, no, it’d be a Constitutional amendment. Chris, we don’t need to get into a debate
in terms of- There’s different ways of doing this. My comment is it’s clear what happened. Repeatedly in the span of about 50 seconds,
Steve Mnuchin called for Donald Trump to violate the US Constitution and then when he was told
that it violates the US Constitution, he then said, “Well, Congress could pass a law,” which
as Chris Wallace said, “No, that’s also a violation of the Constitution, you moron.” He didn’t add the “you moron” part, but I’m
pretty sure he was thinking it in his head. Yeah, you’d have to have a Constitutional
amendment in order to make it Constitutional. Then Mnuchin said, “I don’t wanna get in a
debate about this, I don’t wanna talk politics.” No, you don’t wanna talk about anything intellectual
because you don’t know what in the hell you’re doing. You don’t belong in the federal government,
yet somehow because you have a lot of money Donald Trump thought you would be a good pick
for the Treasury Secretary. You don’t belong and you prove it every single
time that you open your mouth. I would hope that people across this country,
be it Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, or Green Party, would agree that we probably
should have people in the federal government who understand the most basic tenets of the
US Constitution and understand what laws are and what laws can’t be because of the Constitution. Steve Mnuchin is not that guy. Steve Mnuchin is too stupid to serve in the
federal government, and even FOX News reached a point this past weekend where they had to
point that out to him.

    What a pin head! Basically he's saying there are different ways around it like they've been doing to the Constitution since trumpy bear got in. He spits then wipes with the Constitution. Oh except #2. Add one more hypocritical law breaking dolt to the pile.

    This fool agrees that Trump should violate our constitution to please "spanky", our illustrious leader. This sounds like a Stephen Miller rave, saying: The president's always right, the president can do what he wants to do… Trump surrounds himself with sycophants, rear end butt kissers that shows America what these men are made of. Simply put, Treasury Secretary Mnuchin, along with our Secretary of Education, Stephen Miller and Trump himself, have no idea of what they're doing. VIOLATE THE CONSTITUTION – I DON'T THINK SO

    Munch-chin is a predatory ignoramus. Which makes sense because "birds of a feather flock together" and the head-bird-brain certainly has a flock around him. "Only the best people"?

    Freaking IDIOT – this is what happens when the cretin-in-chief employs only the very best people!
    Even though watching Mnuchin poop his designer pants on TV makes me grin like the proverbial cheshire cat, at the same time it makes me feel sicker than sick to watch how Oh so very easily and happily these so called champions of the Constitution think it's AOK to continually poop all over that most sacred of documents and not give a flying fuck!

    Farron, yes Steve Mnuchin has no qualifying traits to be Treasury Secretary except professional corporate pirate. He like the president has only a cash register for a heart and it is over drawn. Let us not forget he was also bested by college and high school students in a debate on the UCLA campus. He and his wife have also taken non essential flights on military jets at our expense.

  • Stev Rex

    mnuchin gained a sweet-heart deal from being at GS. mnuchin had his downside protected by the American taxpayer. Just like GS! GS has received how much Federal Welfare over the years?

  • Gerald Jackson

    I believe that Mnuchin is so full of botox that the deaths head grin that he employs is the only means he has to impart some animation into his disingenuous countenance.

  • Michaeo Atkins

    The Donald and his criminal associates including family members the whole lot of them should and will be prosecuted #MAGA Morons Are Growing Afraid #releasepeepeetape #releasethetaxreturns #MAGA Mueller Ain't Going Away resist

  • Uptown Philly

    Trump drained the swamp it's just when he drained it the ppl hiding underneath the swamp he has running our government SMH 🤔 God help us all……

  • Matthew Lewis

    Doesn't Mnuchin understand the difference between a Democracy and a Republic? A Republic has a Constitution and you cannot change it in Congress or Parliament by making a new law!
    My freind's in America this idiot is your Treasury Secretary and he doesn't understand the basic's in Civic's..Sad!

  • Nonune Konsequence

    Trump and Co haven't read the document they swore to uphold… Thinking thats a Stormy Daniels Precedent. Didn't read it, just like not signing it, not a valid Presidency.

  • Edward Craven

    These robber barons want to rip up the Constitution. This would make it easier for these republicans to ram their hideous legislation through the House and Senate to the idiot president who will sign any hideous bill the republicans sends him. The drum of class warfare is beating. Last class warfare was Rowanda ( 500,000 killed in less than 30 days). Tread lightly robber barons and corporations because you sense it and so do we. I hear the beating of the drums.

  • Bob Nelson

    The Republican Party has shifted from America all the off the planet. They've lost touch with reality. Vote them out. Save America. Blue Wave.

  • Deborah Davis

    Poor cadet bone spurs he is pissed off that he can’t get his “Dictator” type military parade in his honor! Everything going on and he wants a parade in his honor? Perhaps he can write that in the line by line that he wants right after burning the constitution, of course. What ignorant and greedy people are in office right now!

  • Bat Guano

    Mnuchin served as CEO of OneWest from 2009 to 2015. Prosecutors at the California attorney general’s office said they had found over a thousand violations of foreclosure laws by his bank during that time, and predicted that further investigation would uncover many thousands more. But the investigation into what the memo called “widespread misconduct” was closed after Attorney General General Kamala Harris’s office declined to prosecute him. https://theintercept.com/2017/01/05/kamala-harris-fails-to-explain-why-she-didnt-prosecute-steven-mnuchins-bank/

    Even though Chris Wallace has the misfortune of working for a Network that has pretty much turned into a propaganda channel for the Trump administration; he Is still one of the best journalists out there, and does have the ability to "cut through the noise," and does seem to be fair and honest in reporting.  Loved how he called out Mnuchin on his stupidity and lack of knowledge regarding the Constitution.  High five to you Mr. Wallace!

  • mac churl

    Trump wanted to drain the swamp . What's really needed at this point is for someone to take charge and flush the toilet .

  • saigonbond

    Republicans only care about the Constitution when it's politically expedient, when it fits their twisted right wing narrative, and like to pick-n-choose from it.

  • Bleu Eyze

    Geeze Mnuchin, really! Forget the Supreme Court and the Constitution. The budget is only on one party, not both, the "Tax Cut" also known as wealthy welfare had nothing to do with the deficit. Just shoveling more shit.

  • Julius Hutchins

    Wow, this guy is full of manure'chin,
    You dont belong in govt, and you prove it every time you open your mouth, and show those teeth, lol

  • ursaltydog

    It's not a fuckin' debate Mnuchin… Congress cannot pass a law allowing the president a line-item veto without it being approved by the Supreme Court which already said it's unconstitutional.. or without Congress amending the constitution.. Please don't give Trippy Trump this idea. he's already dismantling our government and molding it to resemble h is daddy Putin..

  • steven clark

    For some reason trump has picked alot of people who haven't got a clue what there doing plus you want to punch him in the face a few times….
    Have you saw his wife a beautiful woman she is only there for the money look at the state of his face…

  • Mark Keller

    This is why you have to hire people who know how the Govt runs. At least hire people who are able to quickly learn on the job.

  • Mad-king-of-fools Pariah-of-the-universe

    Steve Mnuchin: What the hell is this talk about something they are calling the Constitution ?

  • Bennie Crawford

    The fitst person that needs lessons on how our government works and be given an understanding of our constitution would be Donald Trump because he obviously doesn't know a hell if a lot about either one.

  • Sevander Jokeracic

    Mnuchin is a tremendously NOT bright person. He is an expert at using the housing market to make millions by tricking people into foreclosure. To Trump he is a hero but to the American people who struggle to make ends meet Mr Mnuchin is a ZERO.

  • Steven Grotte

    RE: the budget, I wonder who slipped the 5 pages of punishment for russia into the budget that donnie DOUCHE BAG signed—-has anyone told him what he signed to punish russia——-bet he has a stroke when he learns of it…. Heh,heh,heh,heh!!!!

  • Spider Man

    My theories on why the republican keep defending Trump and wont take action against him is because 1. he will sign anything and everything because he has no clue about what he is doing and is completely out of his depth, 2. they know that at some point he is going to try to fire Mueller and then when he does they get to be the heroes and impeach him so that their hold on power will be more absolute in the midterm elections and the 2020 presidential election.

    They're All Trump's Picks Of His Peers, No Sense Of Intelligence Whatsoever! Just Props Of "The Apprentice: The Presidential Edition!!

  • n witt

    More and more I realize that these Republicans have little regard for our Constitution and that some of our highest elected don't even know what's in it but rather see it as an impediment. But the first indication of a perceived breach by Democrats, suddenly it's all 'Dems hate the Constitution!' and 'Dems hate America!' I'll bet there's a large minority who know but one sentence of the Constitution and yet consider themselves honorable Americans.

  • Endeavor Trikes

    The constitution no longer exists in the US, it is just a suggestion. We are now officially part of Russia and will abide by their rules.

  • Nancy Levine

    I guess he didn't pay attention in civics class. Does anyone in the Trump administration know anything about the Constitution?
