Last Chance For Trump Supporters To Handle The Truth
Category: Op/EdBy: john-russell • 2 weeks ago • 35 comments
After Wednesday there are no more checkpoints in the election and transition process where people can get off the Trump Train of their own accord. After that point the whole thing will be on its last leg , pulling into the final decrepit station and everyone will have to get off, at least in terms of a Trump presidency.
One of the most famous lines in movie history is "You can't handle the truth". Now that is the lasting theme that can be applied to diehard Trump supporters. Do they really want to go down in history, (even if it is only their own personal history) as having refused to acknowledge that Donald Trump was unfit to hold the office of the President of the United States?
There is a new call to impeach Trump, although it seems unlikely. Most Democrats want to continue to try and appeal to Trump supporters to come back into the fold of reasonable discourse. They want to put the whole sordid Trump realm behind us, but can't explain how that will happen when so many Trump supporters believe he walks on water.
There is a good argument for impeaching Trump over the Georgia phone call two days ago. If he is impeached and removed from office he would not be able to run again and perpetrate more deceit and criminality four years from now.
The Democrats could call emergency meetings of the relevant committees and have articles of impeachment through the House by the weekend. The trial in the Senate could be held in a single day next week, and he could be removed from office by Jan 15.
Trump is on audio saying that he wants Georgia election officials to "find" exactly the number of votes needed to make him the winner there. That is a clear attempt to rig an election result. Numerous legal experts are saying that it is an obvious crime. Impeach him and remove him from office and we'll even let Pence pardon him before Biden takes the oath on Jan 20.
Can Trumpsters, at long last, handle the truth ?
