When the president stated that the legislative branch could not investigate him if they wanted to maintain prosperity and a functioning government (I paraphrase); he shared a frightening thought. Is the president above the law, or was he just being hyperbolic? There is never a dull day with him in office if you follow politics. I hope his mindset does not spread. We have a governor who one day apologized for being in a photograph with racist issues (klu klux klan person next to one in blackface), and the next day said it was not him. It is important for politicians to respect the voters and our constitutional system of government. As voters we must stay vigilant and demand that the truth is the cornerstone of our institutions and debates over policy.
