TRUMP IMPEACHMENT DAY 2

Something intriguing happened during the impeachment hearing yesterday. During the hearing, Trump used Twitter to blast the testifying ambassador and smeared her reputation. While it is true that the President can appoint ambassadors, it is not the right of the President to smear their reputation and threaten them afterwards. This ambassador was threatened before she testified and now she has been threatened by Trump in public on Twitter. Trump thought this would make him look tough to his followers or distract the public from the fact that his advisor Roger Stone has been found guilty and could face 20 years in prison. However, all he succeeded in doing was create another article of impeachment for not just obstruction of justice, but also witness intimidation. Trump also undermined the False Republicans’ defense for him, which is something he has been doing often these days. He can’t help himself because his ego is too big and too fragile, which makes him too unpredictable for his False Republican minions to defend coherently.
