Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. It is with Heavy Heart that I say, We Must Impeach

 

Friends,

I try for moderation in all things. I certainly don’t believe everything I see in the media. I don’t believe everything that either party tells me. This brouhaha over impeachment has seemed ridiculous to me up to now. But with recent developments, I have seen the light. Trump must be impeached, removed from office, and prevented from ever holding another office of public trust in his lifetime. There are some acts that are simply beyond the pale for any civilized person, and the use of exclamation points outside of very strict boundaries is one of them. The evidence is before us:

We cannot allow this sort of abuse of the exclamation point to continue. Not even one time.

    How quickly people forget. He got TWO scoops of ice cream while the rest got just one.

    It could be much worse. He could have used two or more exclamation points in his note to the Turk.

    Impeach!

    Other than maybe three exclamation points in one short comment. I’m looking at you, Augie. Best not ever try to run for office now.

    Fate forfend. Who knew this man was such a monster? I guess we have to respect @garyrobbins for calling it early.

    Ari,

    You are wise. Yes, the exclamation point thing is the true tipoff of a patriarchal authoritarian. We must stop him before he makes some snowflakes feel bad again. There isn’t enough hot chocolate in western civilization to ease the pain caused by such a merciless oppressor.

    Woe to he who looks really really mean and uses exclamation points and makes us feel bad.

    Regards,

    Jim

    And he doesn’t do that rolled-up sleeves thing. How can you trust a president to work for the people if he doesn’t wear a shirt with the sleeves rolled up part way?

    He only uses one pen! He doesn’t use 29 different pens so he can hand them out as souvenirs. Think of all the members of Congress who have been deprived.

    And he has personally offended every career politician — especially those in the GOPe — by actually trying to keep his campaign promises.

    And while we’re at it, impeach Gene Autry! Impeach Captain Marvel!

    Indeed. What real politician would do that?

    And speaking of Marvel, Marvel Comics is the worst. Time for torches and pitchforks. They must have a whole warehouse full of exclamation points the way they sprinkle them around.

    He orders his steaks well-done. And then puts ketchup on them.

    Didn’t Hitler do the same? Eva tried to get him to switch to A-1 but no way. Ketchup, yes ketchup! The barbarian.

    No, Hitler was a strict vegetarian. He was also anti-smoking. He probably did cross-fit, too. And abused exclamation points.

    So, what you’re saying is that Trump is worse than Hitler.
