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.
