It’s time to send Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale back to middle school civics class.

He was hyperventilating Monday, trying to tar the ongoing impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump as a “seditious conspiracy.”

Parscale is hardly alone.

Other Trump supporters seem to enjoy likening the inquiry to a “coup de etat.”

Only in Trumpworld, with its autocrats and strongmen, do things work like that.

Here in the United States, impeachment is not only fully legal….it is constitutional. This is because impeachment is inscribed in our US Constitution.

Moreover, impeachment–and even removal of Trump–would not constitute disenfranchisement of the results of the 2016 election because should Trump be impeached by the House and removed from office by the Senate, Vice President Pence would ascend to the presidency. And the voters who chose Trump also chose Pence, specifically to take over in this sort of circumstance.

Parscale, and those of his like, fanning these false and inflamed claims are either moronic, evil to the core, or both.
