Trump can't be impeached, sorry.

I said it before. Trump won, suck it up.

Some things still amaze me though. The extremely low voter remorse. People voted for this. The show, the controversy, the shake-up! They will follow and support Trump, scandal after scandal after scandal after scandal.
They'll ignore his openly sharing top secret "caveated" information and USA intelligence gathering techniques with Russian diplomats, in the White House, behind closed doors, with only Russian media present, right after firing the FBI director for investigating Trump's ties to Russia.

Which kind of sounds way worse than someone stealing insecure but not highly sensitive emails from Clinton.

Because it was intentional. Clinton's emails were stolen.

But what the hell, "Lock her up!"

I find it hilarious that the base just buy into whatever Trump says. Whatever the Republican leaders say, we'll follow, blindly, because they are the Religious right. The three times married, sexually assaulting, shady business bankruptcies and fraud scandals Religious right. Because abortion is wrong and religion is important, unless it's a non-Christian religion.

Back when George Bush was running for president. I remember a campaign rally where they chanted, "Flip, flop, flip, flop, flip, flop." As republican leaders gave examples of John Kerry changing his mind on various policies. To Republicans at the time, someone who changed their mind was the worst person in the world. "He's a ridiculous, pathetic, Flip Flopper!" Was the Republican quote of the day. And they sure didn't want a Flip Flopper when the steady hand of Bush was promising to stay the course.

And the big chant at Trump rallies was "Lock her up, lock her up." As Trump lowered himself to basic name-calling as he promised to bring crooked Hilary to justice for her careless use of a private email server. Trump even publicly asked for Russian help, help cyber-attack his own country to ramp up his rhetoric that crooked Hilary was unfit to be president.

Which is why he can't be impeached for his coziness with Americas most dangerous enemy. Because Trump openly stated his admiration for Putin. Trump openly asked for Russia's help during his speeches and campaign rallies. It was not hidden. It was not a conspiracy. It was out in the open for all of American voters to see and hear and process and help in their vote-decision-making process. Just like his bragging about sexual assaulting women. Just like his refusing to release his tax returns for whatever nefarious reason. Just like his bragging about not paying taxes because he's smart, and all of the other baggage that the cut-throat businessman brings to the table.

You can't impeach him because he was voted in without the caveats and expectations for him to do exactly what he is doing.

And they voted for him anyway. They voted for him to do exactly what he is doing, and reading between the lines, that is exactly what he said he was going to do.
