It is becoming increasingly clear that sheer lunacy has gripped some parts of the Democratic Party and much of the political Left.
A good case in point: A foul-mouthed tirade against President Donald Trump by Rep. Rashida Tlaib , D-Minn., who, after being sworn in, pledged to those attending a reception held by the leftist group MoveOn that “we’re gonna impeach the motherf—ker.”
It also is becoming increasingly clear that Tlaib and many Democrats arrived in Washington, D.C., last week with their minds made up about impeaching Trump – no matter what. That mindset means the next two years will be rife with nothing but partisan bickering, pointless investigations and more congressional malfeasance. Important national priorities will be all but ignored.
Immigration. Infrastructure. Health care. Defense. The economy. All of it will be derailed while petulant Dems, still yammering about Hillary Clinton’s defeat in 2016, continue their seemingly endless tantrum against Trump in a bid to sink his presidency.
In short, they seem readily willing to destroy the country to “get” Trump, and it all seems so senseless. Even if they manage to round up votes to impeach, the GOP-led Senate never will go along. All of this lunacy simply is a prelude to the presidential contest of 2020, a last chance to pile on, to fling mud.
Tlaib, the first Palestinian-American woman in Congress, and the Nancy Pelosis who defend her actions and foul mouth, are simply early embarrassments in that long, bitter slog to the election.
Heaven help us. Heaven help the nation.
