Standing before the Harvey Milk Rose Garden in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi told a throng of assembled reporters and news media figures that : “we are extremely confident that we have so much damning evidence against President Trump, that we can have him impeached and out by Christmas.” Pelosi has indeed, alerted Capitol Security to prepare to “assist”, forcibly, if necessary, the President, Vice President, and staff out of the White House during that time period.
After Trump has gone, Pelosi, as third-in-line to the office will serve in the role of Interim President, allowing Republicans time to select a candidate to run in the 2020 election. Many are already speculating that Senator Ted Cruz or Mitt Romney may take up the challenge. However, many potential candidates are leery to follow up the most embarrassing and criminal figure in the party’s history to attempt to re-brand and repair it’s shattered image. Former candidate Rick Santorum explained on Fox News Sunday :
“See, Trump went way too far. Sure, I tried to manipulate the conservative Christian base, which always works. But Trump went after the infirm and gullible elderly and the tea party simpletons. He’s basically turned the Republican party into a giant special-ed class, with him at the wheel of the short bus. I mean, I know I’m a piece of human garbage, but Trump makes me look like Jennifer Connely in that movie ‘Career Opportunities.’ I mean, you know, hot. Remember? She was riding that plastic horse all sexy? Is this an appropriate metaphor? Amen. God bless. “
Pelosi intends to begin hearings as soon as next week, over the protests of Attorney General Barr, who called the Speaker a “bully.” I guess when you’re the head lawyer in the entire United States and you can be bullied by a grandmother in her late seventies, your ego is the least of your worries, pus*y.
