One or more former presidents doing unconstitutional things does not mean we have to stand for the current president doing unconstitutional things. I didn't like Bush Jr. either, and looking back on the past, I don't like what Bush Sr. did, or Reagan, or Nixon, or Johnson, etc. etc. That doesn't mean I'm not going to voice my disdain for the current administration and attempt to fight back against unconstitutional laws.

Keep in mind, there are actually people alive who've only seen one or two presidents in their voting age life lol.

My hope is this bill doesn't pass Congress and eventually dies. It'll have a tough time getting through them.
Pt being that Republicans have been responsible just as much as the Democrats. No different from the abortion issue - Roe V Wade was uphelp b/c ALL 5 of the justices that voted to uphold it in 1992 were appointed by Republican Presidents.

They're just merely opposite sides of the same coin.
