I have been watching the later stages of the still-ongoing House Judiciary Comm hearing on impeaching Trump. I have seen Republicans repeatedly ranting on about how this is an effort to undo the “popular election” of Trump, the will of the “63 million” who voted for Trump.
Really, how dumb are these people? Hillary had three million more than Trump, 66 million. He was not the popular winner. What a joke.
Of course impeachment is explicitly an undoing of an election result. The person elected, even ones who actually won the popular vote such as Nixon and Clinton, is charged with having engaged in conduct meaning they should be removed. Quite aside from the hypocritical idiocy of ranting over Trump’s “popular” election, this claim about elections and impeachment is simply ridiculous.
Neither party has an absolute monopoly on ridiculous behavior, but the modern GOP has lapped the Democratic Party several times over by now and shows no signs of reversing course. Sad.
tRump is simply ridiculous. Impeachment is required to correct the failure of the Electoral College.
EC did not do this to us. The 1929 Reapportionment Act did when it locked the size of the House. White America stole the election when they voted for anyone but Clinton or Trump in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania. Historical high numbers of votes were cast for the Greens, Communists, Libertarians, etc.
Do not forget that the republicans were also guilty of trying to steal the election when they tried Clinton,
It”s the pot calling the kettle black.
Yes, Spencer, and public support for that effort never exceeded about 30 percent of the public, while a majority, if a slim one, is reported to support impeaching Trump.
The Dems will not “ undo” an election unless 22 GOP Senators suddenly see the light ( and hell freezes overand even if they did Pence was a victor in that election too. Sensbrenner an old McCarthyte from the northern suburbs of Milwaukee had the audacity to claim that the Dems were making McCarthy look like a piker. In fact it is the entire GOP which at long last has no sense of decency. The only partisan’s in this sorry mess are the Republicans who do not even have the courage to acknowledge that Trump acted improperly.
