Basic Education

Someone — presumably certified in early education — needs to sit down with Trump and explain how things like courts and the Constitution work.

“I don’t see how they can because they’re possibly allowed, although I can’t imagine the courts allowing it. I’ve never gone into it. I never thought that would even be possible to be using that word. To me, it’s a dirty word — the word impeach. It’s a dirty, filthy, disgusting word.”

Circling back to whether he thought he would be impeached, he told reporters, “I don’t think so, because there was no crime.”

He returned to a flawed argument he and his backers have long put forth to dismiss the threat of Trump’s impeachment.

“You know, it’s high crimes and, not with — or — it’s high crimes and misdemeanors,” he said. “There was no high crime and there was no misdemeanor. So how do you impeach based on that?”

I’ve had more cogent arguments with a four-year-old.

  • The courts — Supreme or otherwise — have nothing to do with impeachment.  It’s solely up to Congress.
  • He needs to read the Constitution on what it says about impeachment.  And taking reading interpretation instructions from him is like getting ice skating instructions from a snake.
  • His fixation on “dirty, filthy, disgusting” goes back to his germophobia, which is something that’s better left to a Freudian.

Where is “Schoolhouse Rock” when you need it?

One bark on “Basic Education

  1. You think he might actually read the constitution? Read, let alone understand what he read. He will do and say whatever he wants, until they take away his phone and put the handcuffs on him. btw Pence is no panacea for TRump.
