This happened during a speech honoring LBJ, perhaps the last president to be as focused on personal power as the present occupier of the Oval Office is. This is just another attempt to justify the slew of executive orders he knows he will unleash if the GOP takes the Senate back in the fall.

In summation: according to his oath of office, he is sworn to protect the Constitution, which he is willing to circumvent unilaterally to advance his personal agenda.

Bring it.
