Is Impeachment a Remedy to Hate?

Thom plus logo Since Trump took office, we have seen several white supremacist, Fox news watching, Donald Trump cult following "very fine people" try to send pipe bombs to the entire leadership of the Democratic Party, murder a young woman in Charlottesville, show up at Hillary Clinton's house to try to arrest her, make death threats against black and Muslim members of Congress. His supporters have murdered multiple people across America already.

And now Trump supporter Franklin Graham is going after Pete Buttigieg for being gay. Counties that hosted Trump campaign rallies have seen a 226% increase in hate crimes immediately following the rallies.

Donald Trump is spreading a disease in America, and a small part of the cure for that disease is to disgrace and discredit him through a comprehensive impeachment investigation.

It's driving me nuts that on your show and one or two others I've heard the comment that the impeachment of Clinton did not hurt the Republicans because they "won" the Presidency in the 2000 election. THEY DID NOT WIN!!! The Supreme Court chose our president that year. It was a coup! A caller referenced on your show that Gore lost in 2000 even though he won the popular vote and you didn't mention that he also won the electoral college, had the Supreme Court allowed Florida to finish the counting. Please correct yourself.

Trump - Dumb Luck or A Master Manipulator?

Thom plus logo Either it's an act of a master manipulator, or he has the best luck there is. Donald Trump wanted the Fed to lower interest rates, knowing that that would provide a solid and multi-year boost to the economy. But when Trump came into office, rates were already low and the Fed was not inclined to help.
