Yeah, I’ll take impeachment for $800, Alex. As they are in the House, Senate Democrats are lusting for the opportunity to impeach Trump because…he beat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election. They don’t like him. Democrats have taken the attitude towards President Trump that is more commonly seen in middle school student body president contests. I don’t like him—Waaaa!
We’ve known this for quite some time. Since December of 2017, the Democratic Party has been moving chess pieces in place to lead the effort. One man, Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), who is the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee and reported constitutional scholar, is said to be one of the many characters that will make up the point of the lance in this effort. In July, House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-MD) said, more or less, that impeachment won’t be discussed until Democrats retake the House.
This past Labor Day, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) told a constituent that it would optimal to impeach the president soon.
“The sooner the better,” he said when asked (via NTK Network):
In a video posted to YouTube, a constituent can be heard asking Schumer, “When are you all going to impeach Trump?”
“The sooner the better,” Schumer replied.
The constituent pushed back at Schumer, saying that he had not answered the question.
“We got to get a few Republicans [on our side],” Schumer said. “The Democrats are on your side.”
There will never be enough Republicans to agree to this nonsense. You need 67 senators to remove a president from office. The Democrats don’t have that—not even close. And certainly none from the red states will support this measure. It’s total crap. It’ll also backfire. To Democrats, this is the right move to soothe their egos and insufferable self-righteousness in this faux crusade to be institutional gatekeepers, which was conspicuously absent when Obama overreached multiple times in his presidency. To the Trump voter and the rest of the GOP, it would be a coup—the nullification of an elected leader with whom they disagreed. In doing so, these voters would feel their economic security and livelihood threatened by the elite interests that seek to keep their corrupt gravy train going in Washington D.C. It will be seen more as Democrats being stupid and spewing left wing talking points. It will be seen as an affront to these people’s lives, character, and communities. It will exacerbate the divide between rural and urban. It will get the GOP motivated throughout this circus if Democrats wish to go down this route. So, in a way, the impeach 45, which Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) spouts daily, could work to ensure Trump gets a second term. So, impeach away, Mr. Schumer, Democrats, and others. My bet: Trump still wins in 2020, the House returns to GOP control, and the Senate remains so as well. Oh, and you bet when there’s a Democrat in office, the GOP should be just as annoying. It’s only fair. It’s the only reaction to this liberal hysteria we’ve seen over the past two years. Is it optimal? No—but it’s time to fight back. principles are fine, though a time comes when throwing haymakers is necessary.
