You might be tempted to think what you are about to read is a joke, but I can assure you it is not. On Monday, June 10, the House Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on the Mueller report. Ahead of that committee hearing, which is sure to dominate news coverage next week, Republican Rep. Doug Collins, a ranking member of the committee, has sent a letter to its chairman, Jerry Nadler, citing the manual of decorum, with a list of words he wants Chairman Nadler to ban members from using about Donald Trump during the hearing.
It’s quite an incredible list, really. Rep. Collins has quite accurately nailed Trump’s character with these descriptors.
- Bilking the taxpayer
- Lining the pockets of his cronies
- Engaged in illegal activity
- Giving aid and comfort to the enemy
- Abusing power
- Abusing Executive Privilege
- Disrespected the office
Can you believe these sensitive snowflakes? Collins may have House precedent and rules of decorum on his side, but as Politico reporter Kyle Cheney noted, these rules of decorum do not apply to impeachment hearings. If Democrats want to get specific and call out the alleged crimes and offenses committed by Donald Trump, they will have to open impeachment hearings on the cowardly, infantile, bilking-the-taxpayer, delusional, hypocritical, liar, amoral, lining-the-pockets-of-his-cronies, draft-dodging, crook, conman, racist, bigot, misogynistic, un-American, spying, power-abusing demagogue who disrespects the office of the presidency every day he is in it.
