Trump: “Only” 25% of People Want Me Impeached, Suck on That, Haters! – News

October 16, 2019


Almost a month into Ukraine-gate, Donald Trump continues to labor under the delusion that he did nothing wrong when he asked the president of another country to dig up dirt on a political rival in exchange for hundreds of millions of dollars in military aid, as evidenced by his refrains about his “perfect,” “beautiful” phone call Still, a small part of him clearly knows things aren’t great right now. For one thing, the White House has refused to cooperate with the House’s investigation, arguing not that what the president did was above-board, but that Democrats are flagrantly violating the Constitution in attempting to investigate him For another, the president is bragging about the fact that one quarter of the country wants him to be impeached  “Only 25 percent want the President Impeached,” Trump wrote on Twitter Wednesday, claiming the figure is “pretty low considering the volume of Fake News coverage, but pretty high considering the fact that I did NOTHING wrong It is all just a continuation of the greatest Scam and Witch Hunt in the history of our Country!” In a turn of events that will surely make you question everything you know, the stats Trump cites are incorrect According to a Washington Post/Schar School poll released Tuesday, 58% of people said that the House was right to launch its impeachment inquiry, while 49% said he should be impeached and removed from office More than 80% of Democrats endorsed the inquiry while 30% of Republicans, i.e. Trump’s own party, said the same Almost 8 in 10 Democrats said they are in favor of a vote recommending the president be removed from office, while nearly 20% of Republicans agreed he should be booted from the White House As the Hill notes, support for an inquiry has increased among Democrats, Republicans, and independents by 25 points, 21 points, and 20 points, respectively, which presumably has something to do with Trump (allegedly!) using the power of the presidency for his own personal gain Regardless, when you’re at the point where you’re crowing about 25% of the country wanting you to be removed from office, you’re not in a great place! As of Tuesday, 30 House Democrats had already called for Trump to be impeached, and an additional 197 had spoken in support of an impeachment inquiry A two thirds majority in the Senate is required to actually remove the president from office and, at this point, President I Would Like for You to Do Us a Favor can rest assured in the knowledge that he could hold Volodymyr Zelensky’s family hostage until Ukraine investigates the Bidens, and Republican lawmakers would still defend him (As of today, 39 “unequivocally” support him, 14 have “questions” or “concerns,” and 0 support the inquiry ) If you would like to receive the Levin Report in your inbox daily, click here to subscribe  Trump unconcerned about ISIS because they’re Europe’s problem As you’ve probably heard, over the weekend Trump announced that he was withdrawing from northern Syria and endorsing a Turkish military operation in the region against Kurdish forces, who happen to be America’s biggest ally in fighting ISIS The decision—which surely has nothing to do with the fact that Trump owns a couple of towers in Istanbul—went against the recommendation of top Pentagon officials and the State Department, who view keeping a small presence in northeast Syria to continue operations against the Islamic State, and to act as counterbalance to Russia and Iran, and even horrified the gang at Fox & Friends But according to the wise one, it’s totally fine that Turkey has begun bombing the Kurds and that ISIS prisoners will likely escape the region because in the case of the former, the Kurdish people “didn’t help us in the Second World War” and on the latter, they’ll just go to Europe: To be fair, Trump has been threatening to send ISIS prisoners to Europe, which used to be regarded as a pretty major U S. ally, for some time now.Most PopularTrump Threatens “Civil War” If He’s ImpeachedBy Bess LevinTrump: It’s “Very Legal and Very Good” to Court Election MeddlingBy Bess LevinDonald Trump Versus the WindBy Kenzie BryantAdvertisement Exciting news everyone! Billionaires are finally, finally, getting a fair shake:Most PopularTrump Threatens “Civil War” If He’s ImpeachedBy Bess LevinTrump: It’s “Very Legal and Very Good” to Court Election MeddlingBy Bess LevinDonald Trump Versus the WindBy Kenzie BryantAdvertisement Speaking of Ryan, remember, in February 2018, when he tweeted about how much the tax legislation was going to do for a the middle class, by highlighting a secretary who was getting an extra $1 50 a week, or $78 a year, before he was shamed into deleting it?
