Even after 100 days in office, it seems that some politicians are still not ready for there to be a President Donald J. Trump.
After reaching this obligatory milestone, you would think that Washington D.C. would fall back into its normal routine, but no. The unconventional President is sailing a very unconventional ship around the Horn of America, and murky murmurs of a mutiny continue to persist.
For the first few weeks after Trump took office, it was almost funny how many different ways leftists and liberals could come up with to oust the fairly elected Commander in Chief. (It was a similar number to the ways that Bernie Sanders’ supporters believed their candidate could beat Hillary Clinton, even late into the primary season). There were talks of the 25th Amendment being employed. There were talks of an outright revolt. Violence in the streets.
Some leftist agitators even went so far as to threaten the President with assassination.
Now, however, a new threat to Donald Trump’s fledgling first term has emerged from right under the President’s own nose…possibly on both sides of the aisle.
“Members of Congress are holding ‘secret conversations’ about removing President Donald Trump from office following a ‘difficult first 100 days,’ according to a report from The New Yorker magazine.
“’Nobody occupies the White House without criticism, but Trump is besieged by doubts of a different order, centering on the overt, specific, and, at times, bipartisan discussion of whether he will be engulfed by any one of myriad problems before he has completed even one term in office—and, if he is, how he might be removed,’ wrote Evan Osnos.
“Osnos claims to have ‘interviewed several dozen people about the prospects of cutting short Trump’s Presidency,’ including ‘his friends and advisers; to lawmakers and attorneys who have conducted impeachments; to physicians and historians; and to current members of the Senate, the House, and the intelligence services.’”
Considering the source, the ultraliberal New Yorker magazine, these claims could certainly be blown out of proportion to provide us with an air of possibility, (again, much like whatever the Bernie Bros are blabbering on about). The frightening issue at hand is that, no matter how much you can detest their politics, The New Yorker is still considered to be ostensibly real news. If there truly are “friends and advisers” coiled up in the grass, hissing and spitting, it would behoove Trump to increase the speed at which the Washington swamp gets drained.
Leftist would see the removal of Donald Trump from the highest office in the land as some sort of moral victory, however, what they’ve failed to reconcile is how they’ll be able to stop Mike Pence should he take over. Not only do we have Trump’s cabinet, and Trump’s vision already on track in Washington, Pence is a far more experienced politician than The Donald. Pence’s ability to whip the legislature into shape could very well be the left’s worst nightmare.
