Khan you explain the 22nd Amendment?

Scanning my FB feed this morning I scrolled across this beauty to start my day. The realization that the US Constitution created an electoral college to act as democratic electors of the national leaders has, in the mind of Trustafarian Americanus, invalidated the notion that the United States of America is a democracy at all. Even though this fellow has a wonderful, (very) well educated family and has attended fine educational institutions himself the electoral college proves that he's been "lied to" all his life. In a sense, he's right - it's easy to go through life in America and not learn a damn thing about the US Constitution and it's republican form of government. For instance, this same disillusioned youth took to the streets (Interstate Highway System, actually) a few weeks ago and joined a BLM mob who shut down the 405 in Los Angeles. SHUT IT DOWN! Have you ever driven on the 405? There are few stretches of highway in America more strife ridden than an evening commute on the 405 and were I driving on the highway and found myself engulfed and halted by a few hundred protesters I'd be sorely tempted to run them over regardless of what the constitution says - And according to them the constitutions affords them the "right" to shut down 8 lanes of super-highway traffic.

Which brings to mind Khizr Khan waving his pocket copy of the US Constitution at the DNC and offering to lend it to Donald Trump so that the GOP candidate might read it. It's a great idea and while he's at it Mr. Khan might xerox a copy and send it to HRC for her to read - I wonder what she'd make of the Twenty-second Amendment:
Section 1. No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once. 
Does it occur to anyone, educated or not, that electing the wife of a former president who had completed his two terms in office is a direct violation of the spirit of this amendment. When they wrote it up do you think anyone thought a political party would be so base as to nominate the wife of a former president so that he might wiggle his way back into the White House? I think it never crossed their mind, but at this point those legislators who toiled to create this check on executive power must feel like they were "lied to" by someone and spinning in their grave.
