Trump doesn't represent them.

Undecided

The Orange Shitgibbon only represents about 31% of eligible voters.

In October 2016, the number of eligible voters hovered at just over 200 million.

Trump got just under 63 million votes. Clinton got just under 66 million votes. http://www.politico.com/story/2016/10/ho...016-229993

In short, the vast majority of Americans either voted for Clinton or didn't vote at all.

Trump has no mandate. He's a fake president.

To be fair, though, this is probably true of most presidents, if not all of them. I'm not sure anyone has ever gotten more than 50% of all eligible voters, because there are always a substantial number who don't vote. So none of them ever has a mandate -- but they always act as if they do.

I think the whole mandate thing is silly, anyway. An elected official is supposed to represent everyone, not just those who voted for him.

RE: The Trump Impeachment Thread
48% for impeachment, 41% opposed. The other 11% are either in a coma, living in an Amish community and don't know what's going on, or ... what?

Quote:Forty-eight percent of respondents said they would support Trump's impeachment, while 41 percent would oppose such charges.
...
The results align closely with Trump's current approval rating. The poll found 40 percent approve of the job the president is doing, and 54 percent disapprove.
Only 43 percent said Trump will end up serving his full four-year term in office. Slightly more — 45 percent — said his presidency won't make it that long.

Well, but they often run on a platform. That they will do X. If X is opposed by nearly 50% of the population you can't just implement it without taking their wishes into account. Whereas if you get elected in a landslide you can sort of take it as given that X is a popular measure and you can implement it pretty much as you described on the campaign trail.

RE: The Trump Impeachment Thread
Comey's public hearing is going to have the largest ratings of any reality show ever. It will top The Apprentice by a Yuge margin.

This is the most anticipated moment of the Trump President show and will be hard to top. I just can't wait.

RE: The Trump Impeachment Thread
Representative Green of Texas rises on House floor to request impeachment of Donald Trump.

Quote:Washington (CNN)Democratic Rep. Al Green of Texas called for the impeachment of President Donald Trump Wednesday morning, the first member of Congress to officially request leveling charges against the President from the House floor.

"This is about my position. This is about what I believe. And this is where I stand. I will not be moved. The President must be impeached," Green said on the floor. "For those who do not know, impeachment does not mean that the President would be found guilty. It simply means that the House of Representatives will bring charges against the President. It's similar to an indictment but not quite the same thing."

Undoubtedly Ryan will keep it from a vote, but still, first person to actually bring it up on the floor of the House of Representatives.

Need to think of a witty signature.
