VIDEO: Rep. Trey Gowdy Rips Obama’s Amnesty Hypocrisy Apart, Gets Cheered

Trey Gowdy has truly become a Republican superstar with his dogged pursuit of this most leftist, anti-American president in American history and last week he rose to the occasion again ripping Obama’s hypocrisy on Amnesty. He was so brilliant he even got cheers as he spoke.

Gowdy’s latest full frontal attack on Obama’s lies was during the debate last Wednesday over the Dept. of Homeland Security budget that Republicans hope to deprive of money for Obama’s amnesty plans.

“President Obama announced one of the largest extra-constitutional power grabs ever by a chief executive,” Gowdy said beginning his address. “He declared unilaterally that almost five million undocumented aliens will receive deferred action under some new-fangled definition of prosecutorial discretion, Madam Speaker.”

“Not only that,” he added, “not only escaping consequences, he has decided to bestow benefits such as work authorization and immigration benefits.”

But by these actions, the president is doing something that he himself — a supposed constitutional law expert — has repeated said he could not legally do.

“This, Madam Speaker, despite the fact that the very same president over 20 different times said he lacked the power to do what he just did. And he repeatedly said he’s not a king,” Gowdy said.

And then he delivered a line that may go down in congressional history as one of the most devastating ever targeted at a sitting president.

“Now, Madam Speaker, his position may have changed — after the election, I hasten to add — but the Constitution has not,” Gowdy said.
