This "elected" administration from the top on down, believe they are the final word in everything. No need for a Constitution, or votes by Congress. We have a super intelligent administration leadership, and if you doubt this, just ask any one of them.
After all the entire administration leadership all came from academia, with hours of banter and conversations in their ivy tower faculty lounges, with like minded progressives. They have all the answers.
The unwashed and according to dingy Harry, smelly masses, need to be led. So who better then the super intelligent? Like Joe Biden, our village idiot.
