This time about 5 months ago, Trump was busy running around acting all confident that he would never be impeached, even going so far as to say that he was “not even a little bit worried” about it.
Of course, that was BEFORE House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, announced that there would indeed be a formal inquiry for impeachment.
Since that day, Trump has been an absolute train-wreck, and while still saying in public and on Twitter that this is all a “hoax” and the “biggest witch hunt in history,” it appears as if that outward confidence is crumbling, but not for the reasons you might think…
According to sources:
‘President Trump has told friends and allies he worries about the stain impeachment will leave on his legacy.
‘In a phone call with House Republicans on Friday, Trump articulated why he really doesn’t want this. Impeachment, Trump said, is a “bad thing to have on your resume,” according to a source on the call. Two other sources on the call confirmed the substance of the comment, but one said they recalled Trump phrasing it as “you don’t want it [impeachment] on your resume.”
‘After making the resume remark, Trump added, “But it’s going to make Kevin speaker,” these sources said, a reference to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s upside.’
While what Trump was quoted saying might not seem significant, it does show that he’s succumbed to the idea that this is an inevitable situation, and that his impeachment is imminent. The fact that he seems more concerned with how it looks on his “resume,” is just more proof that he’s truly a narcissist.
The report continued:
‘One person who spoke to Trump in the past 10 days said he seemed resistant to that prediction and said he thought he could stop Nancy Pelosi from getting the votes to impeach. The source said Trump seemed confident that he could pile enough pressure onto House Democrats in “Trump districts” (where he won in 2016 but Democrats took back in 2018) that those incumbents would cave on Pelosi.
‘But a second person who spoke to Trump in the last few days said the president “was not in denial” and understood that the House is probably going to impeach him.’
Public support for Trump’s impeachment is reportedly higher than it was for Presidents Nixon and Clinton, which also looks bad for Trump. He’s probably FUMING over the polls. We just hope that once the House does impeach, that the evidence will be so damning that the GOP will have no choice but jump on board, or lose face with their constituents. We’ve got to get rid of this monster once and for all!
