Former Labor Secretary Calls for Trump's Impeachment 'As Soon As Possible'

Posted: Aug 24, 2017 9:35 AM

Former Labor Secretary Robert Reich called President Donald Trump a "howling manchild" and said that he needs to be impeached "as soon as possible." He also said that Trump is likely to start a nuclear war, continue to stoke racial tensions, and that he's a "clear and present danger" to the United States.

Reich also served as an advisor to former President Barack Obama.

While Reich admitted that Trump will probably not be impeached any time soon (given, of course, that there's actual legal proceedings to someone being impeached and that Trump has not yet actually committed an impeachable offense.), he argued that he should be made "irrelevant." This, said Reich, would be as effective as actually removing him from office. He also called for the media to stop reporting on the president's tweets.

Mr Reich branded Mr Trump a "howling manchild" in the wake of the Charlottesville violence, and said the criticism of the US President's response could help to make him "irrelevant".

"It’s unlikely Trump will be impeached or thrown out of office on grounds of mental impairment. At least any time soon," he wrote in an op-ed on his website

"Yet there’s another way Trump can be effectively removed. He can be made irrelevant.

"It’s already starting to happen. The howling manchild who occupies the Oval Office is being cut off and contained."

I mean...okay? It's highly unlikely that the media would stop covering the actions of the president of the United States, and I don't think the president is going to be made irrelevant any time soon. Love him or hate him, he's still the president. Additionally, it's also pretty irresponsible to just throw around "impeachment" like it's nothing--there's a legal process that has to be followed, and presidents can't just be impeached because people don't like them. 

Trump won. Hillary Clinton lost. It's a shame people still don't accept it.
