What is it that your husband does,” my wife’s co-worker asked her.
“He’s a constitutionalist,” Mrs. Pistachio replied.
“Oh.”  Her friend’s attitude suddenly went sour.  “So, he likes Trump.”
“Yes,” was the reply.  “He supports Trump.”
“I don’t like that man.  I can’t wait until he is no longer President.”
I wish I had been there.  First of all, I am willing to bet that if I asked, not a single dislike regarding Trump by that woman had anything to do with policy.  Second, since when is the Constitution something to dislike?
The even more interesting thing is that I thought the Democrats were complaining because they thought Trump was acting in an unconstitutional manner, yet when my wife said I was a constitutionalist, the woman immediately assumed I was a Trump supporter.  In other words, they know he’s following the Constitution, and it is pissing them off.
When did the Constitution become a negative term with the Democrats?  Or liberty, for that matter.  Or, capitalism?
They are seriously beginning to sound like the Soviets did when I was growing up.
