(Please tell me what YOU think at the bottom of this column!)
Some people will say there is no such thing as “enough” when it comes to President Trump, that the man earns the animus of the culture every time he opens his mouth, tweets at dawn, whatever.
I don’t think that is true. I think we have enough right now to do what we need to do, which is work hard for the best Democrat we can find to defeat him at the polls in 2020.
That’s right, I don’t think impeachment is the most likely path to rid us of this terrible man. Just as he blared and bleated and fluffed himself up when he was elected, we need to deflate him at the polls, conclusively.
Because it’s the only inarguable defeat we can hand him that he just simply can’t deny and move on spouting more flapdoodle. This guy could tie the Senate in knots for months and months just with his growing mountain of lies. We are making a mistake in thinking he will respect that process.
He won’t. I’m assuming Robert Mueller will present something at some point, but I would argue that doesn’t matter anymore.
It’s going to have to be in our hands. Which is fine.
Okay, I know, we all thought Hillary was going to win (I did not). We all thought Bernie was a little too pink and lefty (I did not). We all thought we would never see the day when ignorance would carry the day. (I did not.)
Why do I feel this way? Because I covered politics at all kinds of levels for much of my four plus decades in journalism. I have seen what these people can do even under the best of circumstances.
Trump should have been bulldozed off the stage when he attacked President Obama on citizenship based on what? Nothing. We should have known then that he was a freakin’ liar with no sense of ethics or values we can embrace.
Forgive me for not ever watching the Apprentice. I already had enough bullshit in my life without diving into that puddle of wet pooh. The man has been a fraud since day one, playing an ignorant electorate every chance he could then blasting away like a tuba player on speed about his own greatness.
He took his dad’s money to make what fortune he has (do you know how much it is? Can’t say, huh?) And furthermore, what does money have to do with any of it. This man is proof that it is nothing more than a corrupting influence on him, his family, anyone who touches him.
He doesn’t need to be impeached. He needs to be exposed. Show us, Congressional Democrats, whatever you can find. This is not a prosecution, it’s a wrecking ball. And this guy’s castle is ripe for smashing.
