On October 12, 1859, the self-proclaimed Emperor of the United States, Emperor Norton, issued an edict from his home in San Francisco that abolished the US Congress. One hundred and sixty years later, US President Donald Trump learned of Emperor Norton’s action and asked why he couldn’t do the same. When it was explained that Norton was crazy and wasn’t ‘really’ the Emperor of the United States, Trump still asked again why he couldn’t just abolish Congress and arrest Nancy Pelosi. Trump’s babysitter, Hope Hicks, told him if he got re-elected he could, but if he wanted to Tweet some more, he’d have to take a nap and eat some of his green vegetables.
