In an op-ed published earlier this month at Eurasia Review, Robert B. Reich, the former Secretary of Labor under President Bill Clinton, said the Trump presidency should be “annulled,” basically erasing it from history.
“The only way I see the end of Trump is if there’s overwhelming evidence he rigged the 2016 election. In which case impeachment isn’t an adequate remedy. His presidency should be annulled,” Reich began.
Let me explain. Many people are convinced we’re already witnessing the beginning of the end of Trump.
In their view, bombshell admissions from Trump insiders with immunity from prosecution, combined with whatever evidence Mueller uncovers about Trump’s obstruction of justice and his aide’s collusion with the Russians, will all tip the scales.
Democrats will take back the House and begin an impeachment, and the evidence of impeachable offenses will put enough pressure on Republican senators to send Trump packing.
Reich said he doesn’t “believe” this will happen, explaining:
First, the Senate has never in history convicted a president of impeachment.
Second, even if Democrats flip the House in November, Republicans will almost certainly remain in control of the Senate – and so far they’ve displayed the integrity of lizards.
Third, Fox News and the rest of the right-wing sleaze media will continue to distort and cover up whatever the evidence shows – convincing 35 to 40 percent of Americans, along with most Republicans, that Trump is the innocent victim of a plot to remove him.
Of course, it doesn’t matter that we’ve been witnessing a two-year-long effort to essentially enact a coup d’etat against Trump based on false charges and conspiracy theories, many of which are being propagated by the so-called mainstream media.
Keep in mind that not a single shred of evidence has been produced indicating that Trump has violated the law, let alone engaged in an impeachable offense.
But facts don’t matter to Reich, who obviously suffers from an acute case of Trump Derangement Syndrome.
And of course, he’s not beyond using fake news and smears to make his alleged case, stating, “He’s proven himself a superb conman, an entertainer-demagogue capable of sowing so much confusion and instigating so much hate and paranoia that he has already survived outrages that would have broken any garden-variety loathsome president – Helsinki, Charlottesville, children locked in cages at the border, firings and cover-ups, racist slurs, clear corruption.”
He wasn’t finished:
“Oh, and let me remind you that even if he’s impeached, we’d still have his loathsome administration – Pence on down.”
“Suppose, just suppose, Robert Mueller finds overwhelming and indisputable evidence that Trump conspired with Putin to rig the 2016 election, and the rigging determined the election’s outcome. In other words, Trump’s presidency is not authorized under the United States Constitution.”
Actually, the Electoral College would beg to disagree.
Reich’s insane rant, however, does serve a purpose other than to inflame the already insane left. It shows just how deranged Trump-haters have become, and it gives us an idea of just how far they’re willing to go to overturn an election.
