Impeachment is never far from Donald Trump’s mind. After all, he is only the third U.S. president in history to be saddled with that dubious honor. People have been saying that at least the president did not have to deal with a major crisis. That might not be true any longer.
The president of these United States started off his morning with a tweet about his impeachment. He attacked his top contender in the 2020 presidential campaign, throwing a schoolyard taunt at the former vice president Joe Biden. As the stakes grow higher and higher, Trump will act out more desperately.
He wrote that the Dems were trying to avoid a Senate impeachment hearing. That was not quite accurate. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has withheld the articles of impeachment to motivate Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to have a real trial with witnesses:
‘The Democrats will do anything to avoid a trial in the Senate in order to protect Sleepy Joe Biden, and expose the millions and millions of dollars that “Where’s” Hunter, & possibly Joe, were paid by companies and countries for doing NOTHING. Joe wants no part of this mess!’
Then, there was that potential crisis. POTUS tweeted about Iran and how he “strongly responded” after an American contractor was killed. What Trump appears to have missed, if it ever came his way, was that Iran has the second-largest military in the world. If ever there was a need for diplomacy, it was now:
‘Iran killed an American contractor, wounding many. We strongly responded, and always will. Now Iran is orchestrating an attack on the U.S. Embassy in Iraq. They will be held fully responsible. In addition, we expect Iraq to use its forces to protect the Embassy, and so notified!’
