The Absurdity of Today’s Impeachment Vote Captured in One Tweet

by | Dec 18, 2019


On the United States House of Representatives floor today, representatives have lined up to speak in solemn tones about how they are fulfilling of their oaths of office and defending America from grave danger by voting to impeach President Donald Trump.

Over at Twitter today, politics writer James Bovard calls rubbish on this morality play taking place in the House. In one tweet he shows the absurdity of the impeachment vote. Bovard writes:

If Trump, instead of calling the Ukraine president, had instead sent 10,000 U.S. combat troops to defend Kiev, he would not be facing impeachment. Blundering into wars is a harmless error according to Congress. #ImpeachmentDay
