This is BIG NEWS. The head of the Executive Branch has announced that there is a Right to be Angry.  Will someone please let me know where this is codified? The Federal Government usually uses the Commerce Clause of the Constitution to justify rights that were not previously enumerated, so does this mean that my right to be angry applies only to someone across the state line?

 

Will someone please tell me if this is a natural right or a fundamental right?

I am glad to see the President is exercising his right to anger. This will go a long way in modifying the stodgy old mores of society.  Not that long ago, only radical groups and inner city gangs routinely displayed anger in public. I am sure that with the President’s endorsement of such a powerful emotion, the Untied States will flourish. (BTW, there is no spelling error in that last sentence.) Soon, folks everywhere will be angrier than ever before.
