    White identitarians probably have more Jewish DNA than she has Native American. What a joke.

    Desperately hoping for someone you dislike to be impeached says so much about the person doing it.

    From the Daily Beast article:
    This has been a pretty hilarious self-own. Another "white ally" bites the dust.

    Ben Shapiro touched on this and actually had a funny idea: Trump should donate 0.001 of the million dollars he pledged to a charity of her choice. :lol:

    can't hear tone-of-voice in print, but this totally sounds like a snarky sarcastic statement
    you should have at least taken the 3 seconds to do this "Trump" "impeachment" - Google Search

    Just polls and opinion pieces. Nothing that says 'Trump has done X which is grounds for impeachment' because it would have happened already if they had evidence or a reason to do so

    There's no reason to think this is true. The republican party is more or less a sycophantic blob of shit, and they'll keep him there as long as he gives them what they want.

    I'm not saying he has done anything impeachable; I think it's questionable whether he has. But I also think it's questionable whether he'd be impeached even if evidence did come to light. The base will cry fake news and the republicans will play along.

    At this very moment, he wouldn't be impeached because they wouldn't have enough votes. If the Dems take back Congress (which they won't), there are talks of them beginning proceedings and it'll probably be for some bullshit reason.

    Isn't this both parties? I recall the anti-war, anti-corporate, anti-Wall St, anti-corruption left pretty much vanishing from 08-16.

    Canada becomes even more degenerate and legalizes recreational marijuana. Congratulations, you decadent fucks.

    Except they didn't, which is partly why Clinton lost. That and the republicans didn't care who was nominated, as long as they won.

    Which goes to my point. Even if he committed an impeachable offense, the republicans wouldn't pursue it. They have too much power.

    Finally Canada does something correct for once.

    You're right, the #NeverTrump schism wasn't a thing.

    It wasn't after he was nominated (virtually, I mean; I'm sure there were still some small enclaves in locales that didn't matter). By contrast, the #NeverHillary people held their ground, a lot of them going for Jill Stein or abstaining.

    Dems didn't care about who Repubs nominated, as long as Repubs lost.

    Both had low turnout and Trump lost a lot of wealthier Republican voters. I bet that more disillusioned Repubs/conservatives voted Johnson than Dems did Stein.

    I'm not sure what you're basing this statement on. Clinton pulled in only 71,000 less votes in 2016 than Obama in 2012, and overall turnout was lower in 2012 and 2016 (but slightly higher in 2016 than 2012) than 2008, which was mostly attributed to reduced minority turnout.

    So? I don't follow the comparison.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "a lot" or "wealthier," but Trump definitely didn't alienate most affluent republican voters. In fact, research after the election has shown that the idea that most of his base was comprised of lower-income blue collar workers wasn't accurate. More than half of his voter base was comprised of upper-middle class, affluent families.

    I also think you underestimate the amount of pissed off democrats and Bernie bros who either voted for Stein, abstained (more likely), or even voted for Trump.

    I'm not sure how this contradicts what I said. I'm saying that Clinton repelled more democratic voters than Trump did republican voters. The "NeverTrump" bandwagon basically collapsed once he was nominated.
