Today Donald Trump showed up on Capitol Hill to chat with Republican Congressmen. Among other things, he rambled on yet again about the virtues of Saddam Hussein.

Quote:
Then presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump addressed the House GOP's rank and file in a standing-room-only meeting at the Capitol Hill Club in Washington. He talked in broad strokes about the Supreme Court, trade, tax reform, securing borders, Saddam Hussein and how the media has been unfair to him. And the Constitution -- but more on that in a moment.
Eventually, he got around to talking about how he was going to defend the Constitution. All of it. Even Article 12.

Quote:
Another Republican in the meeting who declined to go on the record so he could speak candidly said that Trump was asked pointedly if he would defend Article I of the Constitution.

"Not only will I stand up for Article One," Trump enthusiastically stated, according to the member in the room. "I'll stand up for Article Two, Article 12, you name it of the Constitution."
The Constitution only has seven articles.

Trump Manages To Give Some House GOPers More Heartburn In Hill Meeting

Note:
Yes, I know that the Trumpkins - who revere ignorance - will actually love this. However, the vast majority of the electorate (ie, normal people) will not.

Meanwhile, Trump addressed GOP Senators.

Quote:
Trump’s most tense exchange was with Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), who has been vocal in his concerns about the business mogul’s candidacy, especially his rhetoric and policies on immigration that the senator argues alienate many Latino voters and others in Arizona.
Quote:
Trump said at the meeting that he has yet to attack Flake hard but threatened to begin doing so. Flake stood up to Trump by urging him to stop attacking Mexicans. Trump predicted that Flake would lose his reelection, at which point Flake informed Trump that he was not on the ballot this year, the sources said.

I think he was confusing it with Chapter 12 of the bankruptcy law.
