Renowned constitutional scholar Laurence Tribe suggested President Donald Trump is “compromised by foreign dictators” during a Twitter broadside on Wednesday.
Tribe has taught at Harvard Law School for a half a century and has argued 35 cases before the United States Supreme Court.
Responding to an online meme discussing what did not exist 15 years ago, Tribe offered his contribution:
Add one more: a president who’s a [email protected];ing idiot with no moral compass or respect for law who’s compromised by foreign dictators and may have committed felonies to win office ⬇️ https://t.co/Q4pbqXTslQ# p #4_10 # ad skipped = true #

Prof. Tribe has offered stinging commentary on Trump from his Twitter account. In the past week, Tribe has called Trump a “pathetic coward,” a “pathetic schmuck,” a “shallow jerk,” said he seems, “batsh*t crazy,” mocked his “little hands,” suggested he is a “crime boss,” and called him a “f*cking idiot” — twice.
Trump’s dangerous abandonment of our troops in Syria, coupled with Trump’s lifting of sanctions on Oleg Deripaska’s companies, mark a turning point: Trump is now clearly betraying his country — our country — in favor of Putin, who has him by the whatever. Sheer treachery.# p #7_10 # ad skipped = true #

The sails and propellers are coming off the ship of state. We’re in full meltdown mode. There are no lifeboats. It’s time for the captain to find some face-saving way to turn the controls over to others before the remaining crew resigns and the surviving passengers drown.# p #9_10 # ad skipped = true #
