Once more, Rep. Steve Cohen has donned the clown suit, screwed in a big red nose and grabbed a gimmick from his Congressional clown bag. This time he has decided to present articles of impeachment against President Trump because of his Charlottesville response.
What a moron!
His buffoonery was discussed this morning on Stuart Varney’s Fox Business Channel.
Varney said he didn’t get why that was a cause for impeachment.
Attorney Greg Jarrett shared his opinions.
“That’s just an ignorant statement by the Congressman. In my pocket constitution which I have here in particular I’ve flagged Article 2 Section 4. Impeachment is for treason, bribery, high crimes and misdemeanors. So this Congressman Cohen says ‘Oh, gee, I didn’t like the President’s statement on Saturday or last Tuesday’ even though the President was legally and factually correct according to the videotape and the chief of police that there was assault and battery on both sides. And besides he expressed his opinion which is protected speech. And so this is just pure silliness and rank bias on the part of Congressman Steve Cohen.
“Surprising because he’s actually a lawyer but he must have slept through three years of law school… A statement in which the president condemned racism and hatred and bigotry and this guy wants to impeach him for it? What the heck is he smoking over there in Tennessee?”
He’s on to something with the smoking, since Cohen has long been an advocate for legalization of marijuana.
But, unfortunately, Cohen is not the only Tennessean to suit up and paint on the clown makeup.
Republican Sen. Bob Corker has joined the jester. He slammed President Trump:
He said the President “has not demonstrated he understands the character of this nation.” He added to this yesterday in Chattanooga that he wants “radical changes” within the White House. “The President has not yet been able to demonstrate the stability nor some of the competence that he needs to demonstrate in order to be successful,” Corker said, adding “He has not demonstrated that he understands what has made this nation great and what it is today, and he’s got to demonstrate the characteristics of a president who understands that.”
Funny because Corker hasn’t demonstrated what it means to represent his constituents. Or how to be competent either. He hasn’t exactly done anything for us, has he?
Our other Senator, Lamar Alexander, he’s been a bozo, too. After promising to repeal Obamacare, he didn’t do much toward that and now is planning a way to subsidize more money to the insurance companies.
What a circus! Only I don’t want a ringside seat to this mess.
