Con­gress must pre­pare to oust the pres­i­dent

It is time for the Sen­ate and the House to se­ri­ously con­sider re­mov­ing Pres­i­dent Trump. He has lost it. He is not qual­i­fied to lead.

He ig­nores the re­ports and ad­vice of his In­tel­li­gence de­part­ments. He re­moves sanc­tions on Rus­sia, our ad­ver­sary. He fol­lows his “gut” and de­cides to pull our troops out of Syria, leav­ing our Kur­dish al­lies to fend for them­selves, ig­nor­ing the ad­vice of his mil­i­tary ad­ver­saries. Who would this ben­e­fit? Rus­sian Pres­i­dent Vladimir Putin and Syr­ian leader Bashar al-As­sad.

He shuts down the govern­ment to get his way, ig­nor­ing the ef­fect he causes on fed­eral em­ploy­ees and our econ­omy. The shut­down threat­ens our safety and se­cu­rity as well. Why? To please his base, Anne Coul­ter and Rush Lim­baugh.

His van­ity is all he cares about. He has no in­ten­tion to truly ne­go­ti­ate or con­sider any plans the bi­par­ti­san com­mit­tee will sub­mit for his con­sid­er­a­tion to avert another shut­down, or de­clare a state of emer­gency.

He con­tin­ues to lie with re­gard to the de­nu­cle­ariza­tion of North Korea, reach­ing a trade agree­ment with China. He lies and says the wall is al­ready be­ing built – another lie.

He is ig­no­rant and clue­less to the fact that he is be­ing ma­nip­u­lated and laughed at by Putin and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. All they have to do is flat­ter his frag­ile ego. Now he wants to send some of our troops to Venezuela, and more troops to the south­ern bor­der.

Health in­sur­ance, in­fra­struc­ture, our mil­i­tary, new im­mi­gra­tion laws, etc. Zero is be­ing done!
