Rolling Stone Magazine: "It's Time to Demand Donald Trump's Resignation."

The article lists all of the reasons for this call, but I have a feeling you all know them by heart.

So instead I will share the last seven paragraphs with you:

There is only one sensible reaction to Trump's antics: for members of Congress and influential conservatives to demand he resign. 

You and I both know he's not leaving the White House willingly, or at least not anytime soon. But this is no longer anything approaching a close call. The things the president says and writes, in public, are more than enough evidence to declare him grossly unfit for a job as a tollbooth operator, let alone as the most powerful person in the world. 

Many of the Republicans defending him in Congress and on TV see his tweets and know he's crossed the line. They'll keep defending him; they're too afraid of primary elections in their own districts to take a strong line against Trump. 

But they should reconsider. Whatever is causing Trump to unravel, it's putting the rest of us in serious danger. The continued spectacle of the Russia investigation is only fueling his descent. Why wait for it to unfold further? The best-case scenario is dragging the nation through a prolonged impeachment ordeal. If not, we have to wait until 2021 to replace him with a responsible and decent human being – assuming he doesn't get us all killed by then. 

There's a better way. Start the discussion now. Call on Trump to step down. Hell, if you're a Republican, you end up with President Mike Pence, and you probably love Mike Pence. I can't stand the guy, but at least he won't start World War III with an ill-advised 4 a.m. tweet. 

It would take enormous, sustained pressure from both sides of the aisle to convince Trump to resign the presidency. It's possible it would never work. The delicate bubble of ego that Trump keeps overinflated around himself never allows errors to reach his muddled mind. Stepping down would be admitting a failure on an enormous scale, and admitting failure is the one thing Trump won't do. 

But whether you're a liberal or a conservative or somewhere in between, if you care about your country – really care about the greatness of America – it's clear Trump can no longer be president. And urging him to step down now is the only option we have to get him out quickly.

I also don't think that Trump will leave willingly, however it is probably a very good time for Republicans to start making this request, if for no other reason than to say they were on the right side of history when Trump is eventually dragged kicking and screaming from the White House. 

Those who defend Trump to the bitter end, may find that bitter end also includes their political careers.

    Trump is finished, over and out. He better resign because the impeachment will be a bloody mess and he cant afford a legal staff to make shit up to lessen the charges. He is a disgrace and terrible human. He blew it himself. He is the same 12 yr old juvenile delinquent that was sent away. He is a bad boy and lacks morals, respect and honesty. If trump loves himself and family he will resign immediately and face the charges.

    1. He won't resign.

      He'll find some lawyers greedy enough and reckless enough to represent him. They'll think they can control him and they won't care what lies they have to make up to cover his ass. They'll believe it will be prestigious to be the firm that got Trump exonerated or "proven innocent". Like O.J. And with so many positions open in the government, I'm sure Trump will be promising plenty of carrots. Their greed will convince them that despite his past behavior, they will be paid and he will follow through on his promises. In other words, he'll find him some gullible schmucks. Greedy gullible schmucks.

  2. Nixon, Ford, Raygun, two dumbass dubyas and Drumpf- just another shit stain on America compliments of the party that cannot govern and ruins the economy every chance they get.

      Very true. Then, after doing loads of damage, we get a SANE, INTELLIGENT Democratic president to clean up their mess, and they obstruct them. They blame the democratic president for everything THEY have done wrong. Despicable excuses for "representatives" Is it any wonder they have to gerrymander their districts, and prevent people from voting? They can not win fairly, they are too crooked.

    2. We have the party that cannot govern and the party that cannot get elected.

      Pretty much screwed either way.

    Well Happy Freaken Birthday. The so called pissadent has a birthday just around the corner on the 14th. A gemini, a twin, a 2 faced liar. America gave him a hearing and celebration of being a liar for 71 yrs. Nothing like showing your kids and grandkids who you really are. Family values. America first. The silent majority? Citizen United, loyalty, pledge, dignity. Has anyone heard of the "Pledge of Allegiance to the United States of America"? Donald trump wants everyone to pledge allegiance to Donald and family not America. In a small warped mind this clown believes he can sway the world into submission and loyalty to him. In his little mind he is a super villain that owns the world.

      Is he going to sign an executive order declaring it a national holiday?

      What kind of obscene, extravagant party is he planning for himself at the taxpayers expense? Military parade with tanks and heavy armory down PA ave?

    Resignation is too easy. After all he has done to this country I want him LOCKED UP!!! We send terrorists to Gitmo, trump has terrorized the USA and the world. He belongs in Gitmo. ( he can pretend he is at Mar a Lago).

    The former assistant prosecutor in Watergate was on CBC early this morning. In his opinion it isn’t Comey’s testimony alone but along with other events for example telling the russians Comey is a nut case, together with his tweets ARE a case for obstruction of justice.

    He should know it when he sees it, not like the republicans that are putting party over country again and again.

    I want to know where the MONEY behind the Comey attack ad is coming from, for all we know trump is funneling taxpayer money from overcharges at Mar a Lago into this ad.

    Comey is a private citizen and I hope he sues the hell out of them.

    Pro-Trump Group Labels Comey Political ‘Showboat’ in New Ad

    Great America Alliance has paid for the ad, which is slated to run digitally Wednesday and appear the next day on CNN and Fox News. The group, formed after President Donald Trump's election to advocate for his administration, is not required to disclose its donors.

    The message of the ad reflects a strategy by Trump and his advocates to erode Comey's credibility......

    Eric Beach, head of Great America Alliance, said no one from the White House asked his group to do the ad. Some of the commentary in it — including the title — echoes public statements by Trump and other administration officials.

    Two days after firing Comey last month, Trump called him a "showboat" in an interview with NBC News.

    The Great America Alliance is chaired by Newt Gingrich and Rudolph Giuliani. Tomi Lahren joined the organization in a communications role in April 2017.

    I think you are trusting the republicans to do the right thing. You will be disappointed they are not going what is right for the country,they put party before country.

    Little donnie must be very afraid of Comey’s testimony. His flying moneys are running an attack, smear ad on a private citizen. Isn’t that illegal?

    It would be very interesting to see exactly who is paying for this ad, Eric, Donnie Jr , little donnie ?

    They claim he wasted time investigating russian collusion instead of terrorism, but no complaints about wasting time on Hillary’s emails !!!!

    Now President Trump is struggling with the validity of Hi$ win.>
    aka LO$ER

    "Undermine the mandate of Hillary Clinton to govern, should she WIN." outpaced by allegations of “voter fraud” and that the election was “rigged.” HIS rhetoric in many ways brought doubt to the authenticity of HIS own victory."
    "Kremlin’s calculations, if Clinton won, Trump’s supporters’ outrage would then undermine Clinton’s mandate to govern, create chaos among political partisans, and might even mobilize anti-government and alternative-right groups that saw Trump as their savior.". Just ask Jared Kushner, his data-analytics wunderkinds, and their partner, Cambridge Analytica."
    Cambridge Analytica’s primary backers, Robert and daughter Rebeka Mercer, simultaneously headed a pro-Trump PAC dubbed Make America Number 1, which was headed by White House counsel Kellyanne Conway. The PAC doled out $20 million in 2016—and more to Cambridge Analytica than for any other expenditure. Trump White House Senior Adviser Steve Bannon sat on Cambridge Analytica’s board while running operations at Breitbart before becoming Trump’s campaign CEO."Russia didn’t need to scout voter rolls to influence them for Trump on Facebook; Cambridge Analytica performed that targeting on its own, delivering stories based on hacked materials to Trump voters—doing the Kremlin’s work for them."a Kremlin-backed think tank, the Russian Institute for Strategic Studies, “drafted in October and distributed in the same way, warned that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was likely to win the election.”
    “For that reason, it argued, it was better for Russia to end its pro-Trump propaganda and instead intensify its messaging about voter fraud to undermine the U.S. electoral system’s legitimacy and damage Clinton’s reputation in an effort to undermine her presidency,”

  11. Yes, we cannot wait until 2020. That also risks him getting re-elected. Yes, really. The Democrats don't have any strategy to retake Congress in 2018 let alone replace Trump in 2020. They're going along thinking they don't have to do any work and it will just happen by virtue of Trump being a traitorous idiot. They think it will be so obvious no one will vote for him. WRONG.

    Even if we started the impeachment process tomorrow, it would still take too long.

    He needs to go out feet first. That is the fastest way.

    We all know he is not in the best of health.

    I think keeping up this constant pressure, this constant defiance, annoyance, etc. isn't doing his blood pressure any good. Between his awful diet, his awful sleep patterns and feeling angry, frustrated, etc. all of the time, he will have a heart attack or stroke before an impeachment could be completed or he'd get close to re-election.

    The pressure must be kept up. He must be thwarted at every turn. The attack on his character, his decisions and his actions must be kept up non-stop.

    Either he will die in office or he will display behavior so very obvious that he is mentally ill that he must be removed from a position of control.

    I think Mike Pence will get his cabinet to declare him unfit before the Republicans will start impeachment.

    He will become so demented and it will be so obvious they won't be able to hide it any more.

    But you can forget about impeachment. Even if you could get Ryan on board, McConnell would make sure it goes nowhere. Not with his majority in Congress. (Thank you DCC.)


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
