In No Way Does Impeachment Reverse the Results of 2016

In No Way Does Impeachment Reverse the Results of 2016

  1. Everybody expects that Trump will remain President since 20 Senate Republicans are not going to vote for impeachment.
  2. Even if Trump’s reelection support drops to 35% and the Senate dumps him, Republican VP Mike Pence succeeds him.
  3. Pence then appoints a new VP, so in no way can Pelosi advance to the Presidency.
  4. Mike Pence will be a much less controversial Republican candidate in 2020 than Trump.
  5. Justice Neil Gorsuch is still on the Supreme Court for life.
  6. Justice Bret Kavanaugh is still on the Supreme Court for life.
  7. The 150 Federal court justice appointments of Trump will still remain on their benches for life.
  8. The Senate still remains 53-47 Republican.
  9. The Koch and fossil fuel oligarchs will still fund Republicans to deny climate change.
  10. The Senate can still appoint lifetime judgeships chosen by the Federalist Society.
  11. Republican Mitch McConnell is still Senate Majority Leader, who will still block anything that he doesn’t like.
  12. The midterm Democratic surge in the House is still at risk in the Presidential 2020 election.
  13. All of the regulations overturned or still in court will remain overturned.
  14. We are still out of the Paris Agreement.
  15. We are still out of the Trans Pacific Partnership.
  16. We have still lowered immigration and refugees and asylum seekers.
  17. Fox News will survive, as well as Rush Limbaugh, and the rest of the right web sites.  They will probably even be more popular.
  18. Trump’s budgets will still make deep cuts everywhere that the Congress will still have to ignore.
  19. Trump’s tax cut for the rich will still remain, along with its $2 trillion debt increase.
  20. If Trump does go, his Cabinet and 4,000 conflicted political appointees will still remain.
  21. If Trump does go, he will still be able to lead some of his political core.
  22. If Trump does go, all Republicans at all levels will stand a much better chance of election or re-election in 2020, because Democrats and Independents won’t be so motivated.
  23. If Trump does go, Pence will quickly end the China tariffs, and everybody will benefit. 
  24. If Trump does go, we will all benefit mentally for not having to deal with daily absurdities, insults, cruelty, and threats.
  25. If Trump does go, President Pence can have a weekly program of mental soothing and healing to help us recover from the Trump Sharkomania era.
