On Wednesday, Robert Mueller publicly opened his mouth for the first time in years and all but begged the House to take up impeachment proceedings. The next day, at one of his traditional rants for the press in front of a loud engine, Trump shouted that he couldn't imagine the "courts allowing [impeachment]." One problem: the courts have nothing to do with impeachment.
Trump reveals he has absolutely no clue how impeachment works, says, "I can't imagine the courts allowing it." (The courts have nothing to do with impeachment, which is the domain of Congress.) pic.twitter.com/EUCI688QD7— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) May 30, 2019
When Trump touched a bible for the first time in his life at his inauguration, he took an oath and swore to "faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."
That Constitution of the United States gives the power to impeach over to the House of the Representatives. A trial doesn't take place in the courts, but in the Senate, with the upper chamber voting on whether to acquit or convicted.
As you may recall, in 1998 Hillary Clinton's husband was impeached, but wasn't removed from office, because the Senate voted to acquit him.
If you're not in the mood to read Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution, you can learn all about the process in song form!
President Grab Them By the P*ssy is also suddenly very concerned about "dirty words," calling "the i-word" a "filthy, disgusting word," different from the ones he asked Stormy Daniels to say.
It feels weird to know more than the president, doesn't it?
Even Members of Congress are roasting him.
If he wants to understand the constitution he swore to defend, he should ask an immigrant.
There's also that fun Schoolhouse Rock song that describes separation of powers as a circus metaphor, which he might be able to understand.
Ideally, House Democrats should teach him how impeachment works with a live demonstration.
