Smackdown! Federal judge rules - Presidents are not kings and Trump is neither

From Charlie Sykes Quotes of the day: in the Bulwark.

Judge Tanya S. Chutkan

Mr. Trump “does not acknowledge the deference owed to the incumbent president’s judgment. His position that he may override the express will of the executive branch appears to be premised on the notion that his executive power ‘exists in perpetuity,’” Judge Chutkan wrote.

“But presidents are not kings, and plaintiff is not president.”
