FPQ28: Ughhh him again 🤮

Fandango provocatively asks…

“Do you believe that Donald Trump is an effective American president who should remain in office despite having accepted aid from a foreign adversary (Russia) and having committed obstruction of justice into the investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential elections? Do you believe that Trump should or should not be impeached for his actions? Why?”

I’m commanded to have “fun” with this question! 😳 First, beyond the way the question seems to be directing an answer by the way it’s framed, there was a long set-up to it that I didn’t copypasta. But this isn’t a criticism ~ Fandango can word his FPQ’s any way he wants. I’m just observing.

Second, there’s a lot to unpack here. I think I should take the whole thing apart, which will take a while. I can’t come up with a quick answer to this one.

Donald Trump is not an effective POTUS. He’s a lying, obnoxious, self-aggrandizing, disgusting, egotistical jerk. He’s rude, crude, and divisive. He indulges in racism and misogyny when it suits him. He doesn’t believe laws apply to him, though he’s quick to hug the flag, and though he ran on “drain the swamp,” his admin is full of swamp creatures pandering to him 24/7. He cares nothing for the American people, only for enriching himself and his family, and plastering his name everywhere.

I do not think Trump “should” remain in office. He’s bad for us and for the planet. It would be great if he and Pence would both immediately resign due to maybe God demanding it (or whatever works) and then Nancy P takes over until the 2020 election.

But do I think Trump should be impeached for the stuff Fandango describes? No.

Why not? Impeachment means bringing charges. First, the charges have to be agreed upon. That will involve a shit ton of arguing and tweeting among Democrats at a time when Democrats should be coming together with a unifying message to defeat Trump, along with other Republicans, in 2020.

I know this is a silly dream, that Democrats can get themselves organized again with a unifying message to inspire their base to vote, but yet I haz hope. 🦋

Say impeachment charges are brought and voted on by the House… then what? Nothing. A big fat zero. The Senate won’t agree to remove Trump from office. So, now we’ve wasted all this time, when Dems could have been campaigning (and you’d better believe Trump will be campaigning like mad through it all, portraying himself as a victim like none other), only to LOSE.

Trump will crow about his “win” and Dems will be scrambling in 2020 to come up with some way to beat him, along with other Republicans too, in the looming election after losing the dumb impeachment fight.

Bleh. 🤮

  1. Plus, Pence would potentially take over, and that is far worse than the idiot in the Oval Office currently. Pence is just as evil, but actually has a brain. Dangerous combo.

  2. Very valid point about impeachment. He should be but since it won’t go through, it’s no use wasting time on it.

  5. I try to stay away from Politics and Religion on here but this is such a well written, provocative post I had to comment.

    Excellent writing, as usual, Paula!

  6. Yes, my predisposition was evident in my preamble to the question and to the way I asked it. I was kind of hoping that some articulate Trump supporter, if such a creature exists, would explain to me why they still support him. But thank you for your thoughtful (and articulate) response to my question.

  7. Impeach is not to kick out of office. If they don’t they’ll be accused of not doing their job.

  8. I’m worried about impeachment energizing his base that might otherwise forget to vote since FOX news says he’s a shoo-in and according to them everyone agrees. Just watched the last John Oliver that made an argument for impeachment. I’m still leery.

  10. The phrase Donald Trump will enter the DSM as a condition combining a range of negative character descriptors and resulting in incarceration in solitary with a kaleidoscope and regular nappy changes.

  11. Very good points. We need to just get him out of office and then go after him like a regular criminal.
