Ignorantia juris non excusat[1] or ignorantia legis neminem excusat[2] (Latin for “ignorance of the law excuses not”[1] and “ignorance of law excuses no one”[2] respectively) is a legal principle holding that a person who is unaware of a law may not escape liability for violating that law merely because one was unaware of its content.
European-law countries with a tradition of Roman law may also use an expression from Aristotle translated into Latin: nemo censetur ignorare legem (nobody is thought to be ignorant of the law) or ignorantia iuris nocet (not knowing the law is harmful).

It has been said enough times that “ignorance of the law is no excuse” or as stated above “excuses no one”. We have possibly the most or one the most flagrant example of legal (Constitutional) ignorance now presiding in the White House. TOTUS has one and a half sources of information and those are 1/2 Faux news and the 1 is in his own mind which is limited to his ability to understand what he is hearing or listening to. There appears to be penchant for interpreting information according to his ego as a self-proclaimed “Stable genius”. Every President has a staff of people who help him to understand the¬† daily issues facing the country and normally are not swayed by personal beliefs for the most part. This resident has a different take on things which is colored by his lack of knowledge and his often misguided sense of the topic. TOTUS believes he is smarter than his staff and everyone else so any advice given is either taken or dismissed depending how much pandering is involved. Any issue that disrupts is eagerly accepted and used regularly despite the advice of better informed people. The less honest members of our Congress have used his ignorance to push agendas that benefit themselves and party rather than ALL of the American Voters whom they regularly cite without our consent. This Resident has regularly addressed issues that have little to nothing to do with National and International issues rather than doing the work of the country in a professional way. The NFL is not a National issue yet he has weighed in on it in his “town halls” which he uses regularly to push national issues out of context and to get a dose of adoration. This is an act by a person who is way out of his comfort zone but has too big an ego to accept proper assistance to do the job right.
