Steven Calabresi is a Northwestern University law professor and co-founder of the uber-conservative Federalist Society. And he thinks Donald Trump’s latest fascist tweet is, well, fascist.
The co-founder of the Federalist Society, who voted for Trump and opposed both the Mueller probe and Ukraine impeachment, says the president’s tweet about delaying the election is grounds for impeachment: https://t.co/FOmO1X57lC

“I have voted Republican in every presidential election since 1980, including voting for Donald Trump in 2016. I wrote op-eds and a law review article protesting what I believe was an unconstitutional investigation by Robert Mueller. I also wrote an op-ed opposing President Trump’s impeachment.
“But I am frankly appalled by the president’s recent tweet seeking to postpone the November election. Until recently, I had taken as political hyperbole the Democrats’ assertion that President Trump is a fascist. But this latest tweet is fascistic and is itself grounds for the president’s immediate impeachment again by the House of Representatives and his removal from office by the Senate.”
Hmm, I originally transcribed that as “I hate voted Republican …” That may have been more accurate, actually.
So in case you didn’t catch “Donald Trump’s Mussolini Minute” on Thursday morning, here’s what Calabresi is talking about:
With Universal Mail-In Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be the most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history. It will be a great embarrassment to the USA. Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???

My question: Why did anyone ever think Donald Trump cared about the Constitution? These conservative enablers are the most gullible rubes on the planet.
