So some day, if a Democrat becomes President and the Republicans win the House, even by a tiny margin, they can impeach the President, without due process or fairness or any legal rights. All Republicans must remember what they are witnessing here – a lynching. But we will WIN!

The notion that Trump is being lynched is deranged, and inevitably invites a question: Have Donald Trump’s lawyers not explained to him what is going on — Yet? — or is he merely trying to rile-up his ignorant base? It’s a variation, I suppose, of a question I frequently ask myself about preachers like Albert the Pious: Is he stupid, or is he a whore who specializes in servicing the stupid?
Probably not a coincidence that it’s the same audience in both cases.
