Lynching and Donald Trump, how dare he???

Wow.  I’m astounded.   Today the President of the United States of America tweets :

So some day, if a Democrat becomes President and the Republicans win the House, even by a tiny margin, they can impeach the President, without due process or fairness or any legal right,”  All Republicans must remember what they are witnessing here – a lynching.  Bu we will WIN!

Poor little victim really thinks he has it that bad?  He’s talking about an impeachment process that has hearings, and hearings, and hearings.  These are quasi judicial proceedings, involving reasoned discourse, public hearings, testimony, cross examination, all in a process that is enshrined and perhaps mired in the rule of law.  There are many procedural protections.   That’s what due process is!  IF there is a decision to impeach the President, he’s ….. out of a job.  That’s it.  Unemployed.  I think that Donald Trump can get through that.  He’s comparing himself, in this process, to the circumstance of a lynching??  WHAT????     A lynching involves no rule of law.   It’s a dark of night affair with no procedural protections, no right to representation for the victim, no hearing meaningful or otherwise, and a rope, and utter terror, and a very dead person hanging from a rope, left to inspire terror in others.

 

No more Mr. President   vs    Dead on the end of a rope

Poor little victim indeed.
