Democratic Rep. Al Green of Texas Wednesday introduced articles of impeachment against President Trump, saying Trump had “undermined the integrity of his office with impunity and has brought disrepute on the presidency with immunity.”
You see, it even rhymes. Let’s try it another way, in verse.
Donald J. Trump,
president of the United States of America,
has undermined the integrity
of his office with impunity;
and has brought disrepute
on the presidency with immunity.
Okay, so it’s more Dr. Suess than Blake, but whatever. I admire anyone who speaks in rhymes.
Green somehow managed to bring Hitler into it.
The public has been led to believe that a president must commit a crime to be impeached, which is not true. If any president persisted with the lie that “Hitler was right,” he would be, and should be, impeached not for a crime, but for betraying his trust as president.
Green, who has been showboating this issue for months, didn’t take further action, and the impeachment proceedings came to a swift, abrupt and yet timely conclusion.
Below is Al Green in better days, delivering a searing performance of one of my favorite songs, “Take Me to the River,” during an appearance in 1975 on the old TV show “Soul Train.”
Okay, okay, it’s a different Al Green. Actually, this whole article is mostly an excuse to show you this video. Enjoy.
