Trump’s recent violation of CNN’s Jim Acosta’s constitutional right to due process hasn’t slowed the journalist down at all. After Trump attacked Chief Justice John Roberts on Twitter, Acosta spent his Thanksgiving reminding the American people that the judiciary serves as a check and balance to the president and picking a fight with them is probably not the best idea.

Democratic Rep. John Garamendi spoke with Acosta during the Thanksgiving morning broadcast just hours after Trump went after Roberts once again. Trump is angered that the courts won’t allow him to change the Constitution through executive orders and end the rights of migrants to apply for asylum once inside the border if they didn’t enter through an approved checkpoint. He warned about chaos and death just moments after wishing the country a happy Thanksgiving.

The Constitution as written does not preclude anyone from applying for asylum, and Trump telling a long-time member of the SCOTUS anything about the Constitution is laughable.

Garamendi agreed that Trump’s attacks are not only unwise, but more proof that Trump believes there should be no system of checks and balances.

‘The president is seeing himself as a dictator, as above the law. It’s all about him, it’s all about his power, that he can dictate whatever he wants. He’s going to find out something quite different both because the Democrats will have the Congress and we’ll do investigations and the court just said, “we’re independent, Mr. President.”‘

Trump may also find out that attacking the man who might oversee his impeachment isn’t very smart, but no one believes Trump is a “stable genius” except Trump.
