Those are the words that send chills down the spines of lawyers. This was President Andrew Jackson’s response to Chief Justice Marshal’s opinion in Worcester V. Georgia (1832). In that case the Supreme Court attempted to dictate to the President. Lawyers love it when judges tell elected officials what to do. It empowers them.
Jackson was telling the Court to go to hell. The Constitution does not subordinate the President to the Supreme Court. Show me where that is in the text.
I think the time is coming when President Trump should deliver a message to all the lawyers who think they have some authority over him. Go to hell. Or, you’re fired.
