The House of Representatives will most likely impeach Donald Trump tomorrow…for a second time.
Donald Trump will be the only president to have been impeached twice…and deservedly so. This time, there may be a few Republicans voting yes. Last time, not one single Republican in the House or Senate, except Mitt Romney, thought it was wrong for Donald Trump to ask a foreign nation to help him win reelection. This time, only most of them don’t think it’s wrong for an American president to incite terrorists.
The really ridiculous part of this is, Republicans in Congress don’t want to impeach or remove Trump after he sent terrorists…to attack THEM.
One of my dumbass MAGA cartoonist colleagues wrote that it was kinda nice watching Democrats “cower in fear.” Dumbass. Republicans were cowering in fear too. The terrorists had zip ties and they probably weren’t just seeking out Nancy Pelosi, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, and Adam Schiff. They were looking for Mike Pence. In fact, they were chanting, “Hang Mike Pence.” One of them even brought a noose. Others brought Molotov cocktails and pipe bombs.
While there’s been a lot of talk about impeachment and the 25th Amendment, let’s talk about the 14th Amendment.
In Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, it reads: No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.
That means if you engage in insurrection or rebellion against the United States of America, then you shouldn’t be in Congress. That seems right. Anyone who attacks an election doesn’t deserve to hold elected office. This doesn’t mean Congress should think about or consider removing seditious members…it means they HAVE to remove them. It means Josh Hawley, Ted Cruz, and especially Mo Brooks, who was riling up the terrorists at the hate rally before the attack, should be expelled from Congress. And for good measure, Congress should remove every single member who objected to the electoral college. They are a disability and they should be expelled.
Members of Congress shouldn’t be removed because we don’t like the way they think or talk. They should be kicked out for attacking a free and fair election based on lies and conspiracy theories. These are adults who have access to facts. If a political cartoonist, me, can get the facts, so can a member of Congress. Every member who opposed the election did so for political expediency…not to save the nation. Their pandering to Donald Trump and the MAGA base fed into a conspiracy theory which supported a terrorist attack…and will enable attacks the Trump Terrorists are planning for next week.
These members sold their souls, but not to the devil. They sold their souls to Donald Trump…which is kinda like the devil. Now, a lot of them want their souls back or will pretend like they never sold them. Any Republican who was a Never Trumper, then became an ass-kissing lickspittle troglodyte toadie sycophant, will probably return to being a Never Trumper and act like they never liked the guy. Half the fuckers who inspired the terrorists are now condemning the attack they enabled. Next week, they’ll forget the attack ever happened.
Let’s not let them pretend to forget or gaslight the terrorist attack they supported. Kick them out now. Impeach Trump. Exorcise Congress. Clean out the poison. When World War II was over, Germany didn’t keep the Nazis in power. They didn’t send Nazis to the Bundestag. But you know there were Nazis who claimed they never were Nazis. After January 20, we’re going to have MAGAts claiming they’ve always been Never Trumpers. We may need to take the Aldo Raine technique with them so it’s a uniform they can’t take off.
As for Trump, when we exorcise him, we’re not trying to save him. We’re trying to save our nation, our democracy, our Constitution, the United States of America.
We need to exorcise MAGA.
