Drumpf the Chumpf

Every day, it's another gigantic faux pas for our apprentice president. Now, he's calling for the elimination of due process in addressing the issue of immigration and granting of asylum. Trump has spent much of his adult life skirting the law and breaking the law when it suited him. He has always been a scoff-law and one who thought nothing of violating conventions, social mores and legal contracts. It seems that Mr Trump now consider the Constitution and the Rule of Law as impediments to his agenda of self-aggrandizement.

This is simply unacceptable and quite obviously intolerable behavior from the sitting president. It is long past time to call for his removal from office. The consequences of inaction seems dire. The consequences of Trump's impeachment  and the prospect of a Pence presidency (however short-lived it might be) one the other, when compared to the utter and possibly irreparable harm Trump is doing to international alliances and allegiance to the Rule of Law, are less troublesome.

Caught between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, we should choose to get our feet wet rather than to submit the soul of our nation to the ravages of the Trump presidency.

Protect Mueller and move to impeach.
