Electoral College Hypocrisy

After the 2012 election, Donald Trump thought that Barack Obama, while winning the Electoral College, lost the popular vote. Mind you, Obama actually won the popular vote, but that didn’t stop Trump from tweeting stupid things about it:

So, not only is he a complete hypocrite, he doesn’t have a firm grasp on reality, and he is only too happy to shoot off his mouth even when he doesn’t actually know what is going on.

Could this lead to problems as he assumes the presidency?

    I’m hoping he stays sane. My fear however is that things get out of control and at some point an impeachment may be possible. If the worst case scenario happens I hope the people who voted him in and who steadfastly continue to support him now despite him backtracking on numerous election positions and his hypocritical positions, realize what he really is and help get rid of him before he puts the country and the world at risk.

    IK, you are 100% correct, completely hypocritical.
    As to his loose cannon of a mouth running him afoul of the law or Congress. I doubt it. Because a hypocrit is not an impeachable offense yet. Or virtually every President would likely find themselves on the wrong side.

    Donald Trump is right. This Electoral College thing is a travesty. America is in trouble like never before. Let’s cure the problem by impeaching Trump for, let’s say, his incestuous relations between his job as President and his children’s businesses. For a start.

    The assumption is that someone immature enough to tweet the above stuff is also capable of committing impeachable stuff.And it may be new ground. Even with regards to tweeting can he tweet something idiotic that starts off a war for example

    I’ll give you what may be an example. He tells Carl Icahn that he considers N korea a threat and is going to do something about it like drop a few bombs on them. Icahn in the meantime goes and buys defense stocks because he is still allowed to do that. DJT then tweets about bombing the crap out of N Korea and defense stocks jump up. Icahn makes billions. Congress investigates and realizes the obvious. That they have a man child as a president. They then decide they have no recourse but to impeach because this kind of crap is well beneath the presidency.

    The above is not outside the realms of possibility.

    Can’t wait for international diplomacy and nuclear policy conducted in public at 3am. It’ll be Great Again, 140 characters at a time. For Twitter anyway.

    There will be great resistance to impeachment, more than likely, if Gingrich is any indication. And I’m not totally sure that Pence would be any better. Trump is capable of an about face on any issue, but Pence, not so much. Trump will be forgiven for all but, as he once said, shooting someone in Times Square, and maybe even that if the Party of No likes what he is doing for them. his biggest danger is going to be making too many left leaning decisions. Then congress will turn on him and impeach. I don’t know if they realize yet that they now have all the power in this country as long as they stay in lockstep. I bet Gingrich realizes this and is prepared to make it happen. Trump is very impeachable and will have to do as they want or out he will go. Can anyone say President Pence?

    Trump versus Trump. You can quote him for anything you want to, even against him. How convenient!

    Impeachment? In the first place Republicans would never do it, no matter what. But supposing they did, would Trump accept it? Not a chance…he’d simply dissolve Congress and carry on. Then the military would decide whether he stays or goes.

    Although I think many of Trump’s actions COULD provide sufficient grounds for impeachment, I agree that the Republican-controlled house would be unlikely to actually impeach him, unless he does something that hurts THEM. He could do just about anything else (piss off China, buddy up to Putin, reverse course on his promises… Oh, he’s already doing those!), but once he hurts the Rs, they may turn on him.

    Hmmm… I suppose it might just take him pissing off enough Rs, for them to team up with the Ds to start the process.

    Once the process gets underway, I doubt it’d take long to run its course. What happens if Donny doesn’t want to accept it? Can the secret service confront whatever private guards he might have to force him out of the White House?

    We may well be in for quite a variety of Interesting Times!

    Trump is pre-impeached; the charges are numerous, serious, and easily proven. All that is needed is political will; and that will be as soon as Trump makes enough enemies.

    There will be senate/house elections in 2 years. While the elections currently favor the republicans increasing their seats, if Trump’s policies start concerning voters then there is a possibility that they will vote in anti-trump members.

    I am wondering if the betters in England have bets going on how long it will take PINO to start a war with someone outside this country. He is already at war with all in this country except Palladino in Buffalo.
