Yes, we are living in a brutal mash-up between a John Ringo novel and a Tom Kratman novel.

Post by Donald J. Trump. “A PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES MUST HAVE FULL IMMUNITY, WITHOUT WHICH IT WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE FOR HIM/HER TO PROPERLY FUNCTION. ANY MISTAKE, EVEN IF WELL INTENDED, WOULD BE MET WITH ALMOST CERTAIN INDICTMENT BY THE OPPOSING PARTY AT TERM END. EVEN EVENTS THAT “CROSS THE LINE” MUST FALL UNDER TOTAL IMMUNITY, OR IT WILL BE YEARS OF TRAUMA TRYING TO DETERMINE GOOD FROM BAD. THERE MUST BE CERTAINTY. EXAMPLE: YOU CAN’T STOP POLICE FROM DOING THE JOB OF STRONG & EFFECTIVE CRIME PREVENTION BECAUSE YOU WANT TO GUARD AGAINST THE OCCASIONAL “ROGUE COP” OR “BAD APPLE.” SOMETIMES YOU JUST HAVE TO LIVE WITH “GREAT BUT SLIGHTLY IMPERFECT.” ALL PRESIDENTS MUST HAVE COMPLETE & TOTAL PRESIDENTIAL IMMUNITY, OR THE AUTHORITY & DECISIVENESS OF A PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES WILL BE STRIPPED & GONE FOREVER. HOPEFULLY THIS WILL BE AN EASY DECISION. GOD BLESS THE SUPREME COURT!” Posted on Jan 18, 2024 at 01:59
I understand the man is desperate and is trying for any defense possible. He’s essentially throwing everything against the wall to see what sticks. The rant archived above is sheer lunacy in our legal system, though. No public official is absolutely immune for anything. This is an argument that would give the office of President of the United States permission to commit infinite crimes without any accountability.
I give full credit to Nick Catoggio at The Dispatch for coining “President Infinite Crimes”. I’m just having a bit of a time picturing what the graphic novel “President Super Villain & The Infinite Crimes Caper” might look like. It doesn’t sound pretty.
We’ll see what erupts, eh?
