    Conversation with my 18 year old daughter last night:

    D: Dad, did you hear they just impeached Trump!!!?
    Me: Yeah, they impeached him in the House of Representatives, but he's not out yet. It's got to go through the Senate, and they'll never impeach him.
    D: No, really, they just impeached him. I saw it on facebook.
    Me: I know that. I watched the vote. That doesn't mean he's out of office though.
    D: Why would they say that he was impeached then?
    Me: Because he was, but it's only a half victory for them. The media is trying to fool you and manipulate you by only giving you half the information in the headline so that you'll click on the article. Since you don't do that, you don't know what is going on.

    I then proceed to tell her that it's all a farce and based solely on politics and hearsay.

    Eventually she just said she doesn't want to talk about it anymore and that she won't ever vote for Trump. Because.....Trump.

    God help us. We're in the hands of young people who get there information and education on how government works from social media.

    LOL

    There are millions more out there just like her that are about to get a wake up call.

    Look on the bright side -- maybe her frustration will impel her to do some additional reading and studying about government and politics. Disappointment and frustration make great teachers.

    I keep seeing this urban legend/conspiracy theory floating around that “if Trump is impeached in the house & not senate, he can run 2 more times. The U.S. Constitution states that if a president is impeached by the House but not convicted by the Senate, that person's first term is nullified and they are eligible to run for office two more times.”

    Where are people getting this from? Why do they think this? If this were true, why didn’t slick willey take a third run?

    I hope so. She actually looked genuinely disappointed. I told her she can vote for whoever she thinks will do the best job, but that she should actually listen to what they are saying and learn about what that means rather than just vote against the other guy all the time.

    I doubt anything will come of it, but you never know.

    It's not true.... some website wrote a sartorial piece on the subject and like the idiot's they are a bunch of folks jumped on the idea and took off running with checking the facts.

    And in other games... the Swamp Princes is now threatening to not send the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate because they will not get a fair hearing... you just couldn't make this stuff up. No one has any idea what would happen if Pelosi just sits on the Articles as it's never happened before. When Slick Willy was impeached the Articles were sent to the Senate 10 minutes after the vote.

    Pelosi withholding articles of impeachment from Senate would be 'grave injustice'

    Well if the articles don't move on to the Senate then what's the point of voting for impeachment at all? Either way Trump remains in office.

    I wonder if they're aware of how ridiculous this whole thing looks to the average voter?

    But, but... I thought they had to push this through so fast because time is of the essence, and we are on the verge of an election of which he will cheat to win again, and we have to stop that at all costs, now, so we have to push these hearings through really fast. And once the vote is complete on the House floor,

    So how long before the riots begin because Trump wasn't escorted from office, and the Democrats play it up like they don't know the procedure either?

    This has been my question all along.

    The average mainstream social-media follower is not well versed in the mechanics of government and constitutional procedures, so there HAS to be literally millions of folks out there today, right now who are celebrating and just waiting for the official Trump-removal ceremony to be announced.

    And when just the opposite happens and he's re-elected for another 4 years there's gotta be another flamboyant backlash. They've already taken to the streets dressed up like an anatomically correct vagina --- what's gonna top that?

    As with everything else, the market sure seems to be taking a toll from this impeachment.
