Tennessee Rep. Steve Cohen led a group of fellow Democrats yesterday in formally filing articles of impeachment against President Trump, which could best be compared to doing for their base what the trainers at Sea World do when they toss chum to the seals. They seem to have started with the premise on Election Day that they’re really bummed that Trump won, so let’s impeach him. But they overlooked the part of the Constitution that requires some kind of actual reasons, such as “high crimes and misdemeanors.” So their grounds range from non-crimes (he fired FBI Director James Comey, which he has the power to do) to the bizarre (Trump illegally profits from his office because the Secret Service rents golf carts from Trump courses to follow him when he plays).
This stuff probably goes over big with the contingent of far-left constituents who believe that if Trump is impeached, Hillary will become President because she came in second. But more informed voters might be starting to suspect that Steven King movies aren’t the only place these days where you can find dangerous clowns.
