I keep seeing some people go, “You know, it’s happened before that during wartime a president served more than two terms.” Yes, that’s true, but only because it wasn’t unconstitutional until after FDR did it. If we just stupidly concede that wartime presidents can serve longer because we remember something about FDR having served four terms, then we’ve lost that fight before Trump ever even gets to try to do it. In fact, we’d have done half his job for him.
