    Trumpís two-year presidency

    Trumpís two-year presidency

    By Kathleen Parker Opinion writer
    February 10 at 8:03 PM

    Good news: In two years, weíll have a new president. Bad news: If we make it that long.

    My ďgoodĒ prediction is based on the Law of the Pendulum. Enough Americans, including most independent voters, will be so ready to shed Donald Trump and his little shop of horrors that the 2018 midterm elections are all but certain to be a landslide ó no, make that a mudslide ó sweep of the House and Senate. If Republicans took both houses in a groundswell of the peopleís rejection of Obamacare, Democrats will take them back in a tsunami of protest.

    Once ensconced, it would take a Democratic majority approximately 30 seconds to begin impeachment proceedings selecting from an accumulating pile of lies, overreach and just plain sloppiness. That is, assuming Trump hasnít already been shown the exit.

    Or that he hasnít declared martial law (all those anarchists, you know) and effectively silenced dissent. Weíre already well on our way to the latter via Trumpís incessant attacks on the media ó ďamong the most dishonest human beings on EarthĒ ó and press secretary Sean Spicerís rabid-chihuahua, daily press briefings. (Note to Sean: Whatever heís promised you, itís not worth becoming Melissa McCarthyís punching bag. But really, donít stop.)

    With luck, and Cabinet-level courage that is not much in evidence, thereís a chance we wonít have to wait two long years, during which, letís face it, anything could happen. In anticipation of circumstances warranting a speedier presidential replacement, wiser minds added Section 4 to the 25th Amendment, which removes the president if a majority of the Cabinet and the vice president think it necessary, i.e., if the president is injured or falls too ill to serve. Or, by extension, by being so incompetent ó or not-quite-right ó that he or she poses a threat to the nation and must be removed immediately and replaced by the vice president.

    Arenít we there, yet?

    Thus far, Trump and his henchmen have conducted a full frontal assault on civil liberties, open government and religious freedom, as well as instigating or condoning a cascade of ethics violations ranging from the serious (business conflicts of interest) to the absurd (attacking a department store for dropping his daughterís fashion line). And, no, itís not just a father defending his daughter. Itís the president of the United States bullying a particular business and, more generally, making a public case against free enterprise.

    To an objective observer, it would seem impossible to defend the perilous absurdities emanating from the White House and from at least one executive agency, the Agriculture Department, which recently scrubbed animal abuse reports from its website, leaving puppies, kittens, horses and others to fend for themselves.

    In a hopeful note, a few Republicans are speaking out, but the list is short.

    Rep. Jason Chaffetz recently got a taste of whatís ahead for Republican incumbents. Facing an unruly crowd at a town hall meeting in Utah, the House Oversight Committee chairman was booed nearly every time he mentioned Trump. Even if many in the crowd were members of opposition groups, the evening provided a glimpse of the next two years. From 2010ís tea party to 2018ís resistance, the pendulum barely had time to pause before beginning its leftward trek.

    While we wait for it to someday find the nationís center, where so many wait impatiently, it seems clear that the president, who swore an oath to defend the U.S. Constitution, has never read it. Nor, apparently, has he ever even watched a Hollywood rendering of the presidency. A single episode of ďThe West WingĒ would have taught Trump more about his new job than he seems to know ó or care.

    Far more compelling than keeping his promise to act presidential is keeping campaign promises against reason, signing poorly conceived executive orders, bashing the judicial and legislative branches, and tweeting his spleen to a wondering and worrying world.

    Kathleen Parker is a "conservative-leaning" person, i. e. a Republican. She was part of the NeverTrump. But you could never tell she was a Republican from her writings about Trump! She is disgusting. The primaries are over now, the general election is over, the transition is over, the inauguration is over, our President is busy working hard to do a great job in delivering on his promises, jobs, economy, immigration, trade, taxes, health care, wall, safety, security, etc., etc.

    So why would a "conservative-leaning" Republican like Kathleen Parker still be writing just hateful, wicked, erroneous articles like this? It's so dishonest, so vile, so stupid, so ugly, it's inexplicable. It spans far beyond anything I've ever seen in politics. So maybe it isn't politics, maybe it's something else. Whatever it is, it's personal, not professional.

    JD2, something is wrong with your thread title. It doesn't match the title of the article. How does that happen? The title of the article is "Al Franken Says a 'few' of his GOP colleagues ......"

    The headline, Al Franken says Ďa fewí of his GOP colleagues in the Senate have expressed concern over Trumpís mental health, won't fit in the title box, so something has to be cut.

    The person posting an article does not have to use any part of the Headline, written by the newspaper, as their title here.
