2015: Take him seriously but not literally.
2016: Trump's rough edges are just a strategic style
2017: He's about to pivot, just watch
2018: Look, you all knew what he was when you elected him
Not only CAN we impeach him, we ought to never stop impeaching him. We should impeach him until he leaves office, and then we should impeach him until his final breath, and then we should impeach him posthumously.
Trump's impeachment should be an eternal flame within Congress.
We should construct a machine that exists only to perpetually impeach Donald Trump, as a reminder of what he is and what the Republican Party and our institutions are comfortable with
By 2025 we should make sure it's the only machine on the planet that still runs on fossil fuels
But to return to that horseshit op-ed, recognize it for what it is: the next phase in an abuser's bag of tricks.
I'd never do that
I'm not doing it right now
This isn't happening
You're lying that it happened
Look there's no stopping it.
It's just the way things are
And they're doing the same thing now with climate change
They do the same thing with everything
Fight everything they stand for
Bring consequence for their abuses
Ignore their complaints
Don't seek their permission
This is absolutely right, and describes a society based primarily in abuse and enablement.
All an abuser wants is the ability to continue the abuse without consequence.
Which makes consequence important
