Making America Great Again: Is Trump's Interpretation of the Constitution the Way to Go?

Attorney and Bill of Rights expert, Robert McWhirter, leads a presentation and question-and-answer session about what the Constitution really says about what Trump wants to do.

How does the 18th-century language of our Constitution play out against the language of Donald Trump's Twitter account? Is Donald Trump the first to attack the press? What does the Constitution allow Donald Trump to do with freedom of religion? Can Donald Trump really punish somebody for burning the American flag or take away their citizenship? Are there really 12 articles of the Constitution that Trump "fully supports." Is a ban of Muslims coming into the country Constitutional? Can a President have a conflict of interest and just what the heck is an emolument? Can the President fire an FBI Director? We will discuss all of these and more as we go through the history and meaning of the United States Constitution.

Copies of McWhirter's book Bills, Quills, and Stills will be available

Doors open at 9:00 am for optional buffet breakfast ($5 donation) and socializing. Presentation begins at 10:00 am.
