Filmmaker and liberal activist Michael Moore has been vocal about his opinion of President-elect Donald Trump during the election. Moore has not held back in telling his followers what a disastrous idea it would be to give a man with no political experience the position of Commander-in-Chief. On Thursday, November 10, Moore posted to his Facebook page a plea to his followers to help him create a movement to impeach Trump even before he takes office in January.
“Prepare to impeach Trump. Just as the Republicans were already planning to do with President Hillary from day one, we must organize the apparatus that will bring charges against him when he violates his oath and breaks the law — and then we must remove him from office,” Moore wrote.
Michael explained that the Republicans were prepared to impeach Hillary Clinton if she would have won, likewise, we have to prepare to remove Trump from office. It is a hot topic on social media as many Americans feel that Donald is not fit to be president of the United States.
“Trump’s victory is no surprise. He was never a joke. Treating him as one only strengthened him,” Michael said. Moore went on to say that Donald’s followers wanted a change and refused to elect Hillary Clinton, citing the main reason was a lack of trust.
Moore implies that the reason Trump was elected was not that people agreed with Trump. He was elected because the American people still have a hard time trusting Hillary, and when it comes down to it, they feel they can trust Donald Trump more than Clinton.
“Working-class middle Americans have lost their jobs, houses, and cars; they have terrible health care plans; they’re angry,” Moore explained. The country’s economic system is not fair, and many people are struggling to make ends meet. These are people that are working very hard, sometimes holding two or three jobs. Donald Trump gave them hope that things can change, and they could have a happy and prosperous life. Many liberal Americans feel that Trump’s message was built on a lie, giving voters false hope.
It seems unlikely that Donald Trump will serve a four-year term as president. Immediately following the November 8 election, riots broke out in over 40 cities across the United States. Celebrities protested the election results and took to social media to voice their disappointment with the election result.
Michael Moore offers a four-point plan to reform our election system, Raw Story reports.
“1. Eliminate the Electoral College — popular vote only. 2. Paper ballots only — no electronic voting. 3. Election Day must be made a holiday for all — or held on a weekend, so more people vote. 4. All citizens, regardless of any run-ins with the criminal ‘justice’ system, must have the right to vote,” Michael wrote.
The Trump University lawsuit is set to begin November 28. It is a civil suit, but it could be enough to convince the American people that Donald Trump isn’t fit for office. In mid-December, Trump will go to court for the rape case that allegedly occurred nearly three decades ago. These cases may not carry a hefty jail sentence, but it could imply that Donald isn’t fit for office and prompt Congress to impeach him.
Utah law professor Christopher Lewis Peterson wrote a 22-page article requesting the American people and Congress to consider removing Donald Trump from office, even before he officially begins his four-year term, SSRN reports. Peterson’s essay repeated many of the same ideas that Michael has been telling his followers for months. Trump would be a dangerous president, and America should impeach him as soon as possible.
“In the final weeks of the 2016 Presidential campaign, Donald J. Trump faces three lawsuits accusing him of fraud and racketeering. These ongoing cases focus on a series of wealth seminars called ‘Trump University’ which collected over $40 million from consumers seeking to learn Trump’s real estate investing strategies. Although these consumer protection cases are civil proceedings, the underlying legal elements in several counts that plaintiffs seek to prove run parallel to the legal elements of serious crimes under both state and federal law. This essay provides a legal analysis of whether Trump’s alleged behavior would, if proven, rise to the level of impeachable offenses under the presidential impeachment clause of the United States Constitution.”
After it is all said and done, people should have listened to Michael Moore months ago. He told anyone who would listen that Donald Trump would win the election, but no one listened. Now, Americans are stuck with Trump for at least the next four years, unless they can get the support to impeach him and remove him from office.
