I think we all knew the Democrats were going to force impeachment through just so they could say “Donald Trump has been impeached” for the next five years. POTUS took to Twitter like a boss, predicting the move Thursday morning. “The Do Nothing Democrats had a historically bad day yesterday in the House. They have no Impeachment case and are demeaning our Country. But nothing matters to them, they have gone crazy. Therefore I say, if you are going to impeach me, do it now, fast so we can have a fair trial in the Senate, and so that our Country can get back to business,” he wrote.
What he said next should send shivers down the spines of the swamp-dwellers named. Donald Trump loves a fight and this one is going to be the battle of the century. “We will have Schiff, the Bidens, Pelosi and many more testify, and will reveal, for the first time, how corrupt our system really is. I was elected to ‘Clean the Swamp,’ and that’s what I am doing!” Impeachment hearings were a real snooze but I’m clearing a spot on my couch and stocking snacks for the senate trial. Invest in popcorn now, people! This show is about to get lit AF.
Can you imagine how much fun it will be to see Hunter Biden being interrogated about what qualifies him, a drug-abusing, stripper-groping, brother’s wife-chasing, degenerate to a $50k per month salary for some foreign oil company while his dad was VP? My dopamine levels are rising just thinking about it. This nonsense in Congress was the Democrats’ clown show. The trial in the Senate is going to be a slaughter of all these people and their “presumptions.” They haven’t given one sliver of evidence that can be used in an actual trial. It’s been nothing but a parade of hearsay and innuendo.
A few hours after the president’s dare to go on and do it already, Pelosi made her announcement in a slurred speech that seemed as if she had just gotten off one of those flights she takes with the $40,000 liquor tab. I wasn’t the only one who noticed.
I think it’s relevant and explains how Democrats think they’re going to get away with this. Lots of lunchtime martinis. Trump responded with another tweet shortly after the wobbly announcement. “The Do Nothing, Radical Left Democrats have just announced that they are going to seek to Impeach me over NOTHING. They already gave up on the ridiculous Mueller ‘stuff,’ so now they hang their hats on two totally appropriate (perfect) phone calls with the Ukrainian President,” he wrote. “This will mean that the beyond important and seldom used act of Impeachment will be used routinely to attack future Presidents. That is not what our Founders had in mind. The good thing is that the Republicans have NEVER been more united. We will win!”
I hope those united Republicans are planning to lock Mitt Romney in a closet somewhere for the duration. You can be sure that Romney and the other Trump-hating Republicans in the Senate have already been hatching plots to kill Caesar when no one expects it. I’m fairly certain it will go Trump’s way, but watch out for those snakes.
You can count on the Democrats using the word “impeachment” as a hammer for the next five years. They’ve got what they wanted: a hollow insult that will ultimately mean nothing but will bolster the low-information Trump haters’ delusions that there’s a criminal in office. It will also do much damage to the sanctity of the people’s vote going forward and no president will be safe from a partisan impeachment coup, just like the president said.
What a sorry lot of bad actors we have running this country. Where’s the reset button?
