Trump should be removed from office

Posted1/30/2018 1:00 AM

How much longer is Congress going to tolerate the president's inexcusable behavior? Donald Trump is more than just a loose cannon with a Twitter addiction, he's a disgrace to his office, and has proved over the last year that he is spectacularly unfit to be president of the United States. He has no respect for the U.S. Constitution (in fact he doesn't even know what's in it), no respect for the U.S. judiciary, no respect for members of the U.S. Congress and generally no respect for anyone who doesn't agree with him. What's even more troubling is Trump's psychiatric state, as demonstrated by his latest denigrating and blatantly racist comments regarding Haiti and African nations.

Trump's divisive and inflammatory rhetoric is tearing our nation apart, and his toxic behavior is alienating our allies around the world. His immature and mindless tweeting regarding North Korea has only served to enrage the already unstable Kim Jong Un. Can you just imagine what the reaction in this country would have been in October of 1962 if JFK had taunted Nikita Khrushchev in his television address to the nation: ("Hey Niki Nuclear, better watch out … my button is bigger than yours.").

It's time for Congress to pull their collective heads out of the sand and take the action that's necessary to remove Donald Trump from office, either through the impeachment process or exercise of the 25th Amendment. Delaying any longer will only harm our nation and cause irreparable damage to our democracy.

Robert Mueller can't work fast enough to establish a case for conspiracy and/or obstruction of justice to provide the impetus to rid the nation of our national embarrassment.
