Trump Demands Mitch McConnell Be ‘Impeached’ (Even Though He Can’t Be)

Failed, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump wants Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to be impeached if he agrees to raise the federal debt ceiling.

Appearing on Real America’s Voice (since Fox will no longer allow him on their airwaves), the host interviewing the disgraced ex-president declared:

“Democrats are scheming, probably with some of the RINOs (Republicans in Name Only), in order to blow the debt ceiling up.”

Trump replied:

“It’s crazy, what’s happening with this debt ceiling. Mitch McConnell keeps allowing them to have it.”

What would the consequences of not raising the debt ceiling be? According to the U.S. Treasury:

“Failing to increase the debt limit would have catastrophic economic consequences. It would cause the government to default on its legal obligations – an unprecedented event in American history. That would precipitate another financial crisis and threaten the jobs and savings of everyday Americans – putting the United States right back in a deep economic hole, just as the country is recovering from the recent recession.”

Despite that, the oft-bankrupt Trump then called for McConnell’s impeachment:

“I mean, they ought to impeach Mitch McConnell, if he allows that.”

However, a U.S. Senator cannot be impeached. They can be censured, reprimanded, and even expelled, but impeachment can’t be used on any member of Congress. The Constitution doesn’t allow it. But it’s doubtful that Trump has actually read the document.

Trump added:

“Frankly, Mitch McConnell, something has to be, they have something on him. How he approves this thing is incredible.”

Frankly, it should be a requirement that anyone as brain damaged and downright ignorant as Donald Trump is disallowed from serving in any office whatsoever. Electing morons only serves to make us the laughingstock of the world and imperil the very foundations of our democracy.

Besides, Donald holds the record on impeachments with two. It’s the only thing he’s accomplished in his otherwise pathetic life.
