A group of 66 deranged Democrats voted on Friday in favor of impeaching President Trump. This time, the supposed “high crimes or misdemeanors” committed by the President which warrant his removal from office, according to these super-serious legislators, were Trump’s alleged comments about some countries being “shitholes.”
Another vote to impeach the President was held in December. It failed with only 58 Congressmen voting in favor. The silver lining for Democrats is that yesterday’s impeachment effort picked up 8 more votes than the previous attempt. At this rate, Democrats will have enough votes to impeach President Trump in about 20 years!
From The Hill:
The House on Friday once again rejected an effort by Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) to impeach President Trump, in a sign of inflamed partisan tensions ahead of a midnight deadline to avoid a government shutdown.
Green, who has agitated for Trump’s impeachment for months, forced a procedural vote on articles of impeachment following Trump’s Oval Office comments last week describing some nations as “shithole countries” while expressing a preference for immigrants from places like Norway.
It failed by a 355-66 vote, with three Democrats voting “present.”
Trump made the comments during a meeting with members of Congress about a potential deal to shield young immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally from deportation while enhancing border security. Those talks have been in limbo since that meeting, which in turn has led to an impasse over keeping the government open.
