Warren: Trump 'may not even be a free person' in 2020
Donald Trump is running for re-election. He will be on the ballot in every state in 2020. He will not be convicted by the Republican Senate even if the Democratic House impeaches him.
These are facts that any junior high student who has even a passing familiarity with current events knows. So why is Senator Elizabeth Warren so delusional as to believe that Trump will be behind bars by 2020?
Warren, who officially announced her bid for the Democratic presidential nomination on Saturday, made the remark at the Veterans Memorial Building in Cedar Rapids in front of a crowd of several hundred. The Massachusetts senator argued that Democrats should resist the urge to respond to "a racist tweet, a hateful tweet, something really dark and ugly" when choosing whether or not to spar with Trump.
"Are we going to let him use those to divide us?" Warren said, according to a report from The New York Times.
"By the time we get to 2020, Donald Trump may not even be president," she continued. "In fact, he may not even be a free person."
It's touching to see the childlike faith in the Mueller investigation that Democrats have. Unless the special counsel has documented evidence that Trump himself worked with the Russians to win the election, there is just no way that 20 Republican senators would join with the 47 Democrats and independents to convict the president in the Senate and remove him from office.
Warren is delusional. If she really believes what she said, she should be disqualified from high office for being unable to do simple math. To so casually refer to a sitting president being convicted of a crime and thrown in jail — in the space of less than two years — bespeaks a separation from reality so profound as to call into question her sanity.
Sure, presidential candidates say all sorts of untrue things. But none rises to the level of calumny that Warren has reached. If this is a sample of the campaigns that Democrats will run against Trump, the president may as well start planning the inaugural parade.
