And it shouldn’t come to anyone’s surprise that his followers aren’t much brighter. Just the other day, some mouthbreather on Facebook tried to sucker me into debating with him, and I was like, “We don’t have the same frame of reference- I speak the King’s English. I’m not fluent in moron!” He kept egging me on until I finally responded with, “Wow. SOMEBODY’S feeling insecure about his manhood today. Are you going to call your mommy on me, too?”
That was pretty much that.
I dunno about you, but I’m pretty much getting tired of the whole impeachment discussion. I mean, let’s get serious- it’s probably never going to happen for three reasons: 1. It’s an election year, 2. It will die in the Senate, and 3. It might not even be necessary.
Besides, the majority of Americans don’t want it, and less than half of the House of Representatives support it. Nancy Pelosi is playing it correctly in that she’s allowing Trump to immolate himself every day. Look, we all know he’s a liar and a crook and that he’s running the country into the ground, but the plain truth of the matter is that if they impeach and don’t convict, chances are the Dems will be handing Trump a second term on a silver platter.
The far better tactic is to keep the threat of impeachment alive because it’s the only thing that will keep Trump occupied. Would you rather have him whining on Twitter or doing more damage to the country? I dunno about you, but I’d rather he rage tweets about impeachment and not be provoking a war with Iran that we can’t win without a colossal loss of life on both sides.
And as if that’s not enough to deal with, now a knuckle-dragging biker gang wants to get involved. Artie Muller, the 74-year old leader of Rolling Thunder, has pledged to overrun the capitol with thousands of bikers if Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi decides to impeach, calling her an ‘arrogant little bitch’. As if Donald Trump is the soul of humility.
Give me a break. First of all, I wouldn’t be the slightest bit scared of some 74-year old guy who went by the name, ‘Artie’. And yes, I do know of this guy’s background. I know he is a Vietnam veteran who has fought for vet’s rights and advocated for P.O.W.’S and M.I.A. soldiers, which I respect him for, but he is sorely mistaken if he thinks that Trump gives a shit about the veterans. You only need to utter the name of John McCain as evidence of that fact. Trump hates him so much that he went to the trouble of having the ship that bears his name hidden away so that Trump wouldn’t become enraged at the sight of it. I guess now we know what triggers him.
Hey, Melania! If you really ever want to piss off your husband, next time you have sex with him, (after retching, of course,) scream out, “JOHN MCCAIN!” as you fake your orgasm. He’ll probably have an aneurysm on the spot. You’ll become a national hero overnight!
Anyway, getting back to Artie Muller and Rolling Thunder riding into the capitol, I mean, what’s he going to do- roll up in his walker? Toss his dentures at Pelosi when she leaves the capitol building? I guarantee you that if he called for his boys in to storm Washington, they’d stay home to drink a 12-pack of beer and binge watch a few seasons’ worth of SONS OF ANARCHY.
Take it easy, Artie- the age of John Rambo is over. Go see the new movie and take a box of kleenex. I’m pretty sure Rambo ain’t walking away from this one.
At any rate, everyone needs to slow their roll. Trump is dug in like a tick at this point- we can rip out the body, but the head will still be embedded under the skin. Believe me, I want that thin-skinned, tangerine-tinted, malodorous gasbag out of the White House as much as the next person, but I’m being realistic about it.
Yeah, I know I’m gonna get reamed by a lot of my readers, but you know I’m probably right. I honestly wish I wasn’t, but in the last few years, I’ve pretty much lost hope in any politician doing what’s right for the country.
My advice? Vote in the primaries, stand behind the eventual nominee, and tell everyone you know who didn’t vote in 2016 to get off their ass and VOTE in November 2020!
