Hey Democrats… Time for Plan I
(Warning: Satire Alert)
If you’re a Democrat, you’re probably still feeling badly about the election. As well you should. Your candidate had the resumé, the money, the media, even the corporations behind her. And yet you lost to a gun-slinging rookie who spent a lot of time walking back his walk-backs.
Of course, Mr. Trump did a couple of pretty smart things.
1. He discussed problems that people actually cared about―like jobs. When you can’t support your family, issues such as minority rights and global warming are not your top priorities.
2. He figured out there was one minority group that the Democrats did not have in their hip pocket: White people, many of whom felt like the invisible Americans.
At this point you Dems have two choices…
1. You can put aside your pettiness and selfishness and work with Mr. Trump for the good of the nation. (Sure you will.)
2. You can do everything you can to make Trump’s presidency as difficult as possible, in hopes that he’ll be seen as a total failure.
Assuming you opt for the second choice, you have a problem. With Republicans in control of both the House and Senate, your obstructionist capabilities are limited. Clearly, you’ve reached the desperation stage, so you may as well choose the desperation option: Impeachment.
Granted, it would be pretty tricky to impeach a person who has not yet taken office, but since Mr. Trump is a shoot-from-the-hip hombre with vast business holdings, it can’t be too hard for you to conjure up a conflict-of-interest situation.
And you need to be ready to pull the impeachment trigger, so here’s what you do:
- Check out Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution.
- Pick out something you like. We suggest “… high Crimes and Misdemeanors.” It’s a veritable smorgasbord of wrongdoing.
- Draft a fill-in-the-blanks Articles of Impeachment. An example is shown below.
Resolved, That Donald J. Trump, President of the United States, is impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors [Throw in some boilerplate about violating the Constitutional oath]. He has, acting personally and through his subordinates and agents, endeavored to _____ and to _______ and to_______ in an unlawful manner.
Yes, most of the country will look on you as a bunch of jackasses, but at least you’ll look like jackasses with an agenda. (Note: “Vote for me ‘cause I’m Hillary,” is not an agenda.)
