Republican Leaders Have Finally Figured Out That Donald Trump is Unfit for the Presidency

The first few days of Donald Trump’s 17-day vacation seemed like a much needed, much-deserved break for the American psyche. News outlets were quiet(ish), Facebook feeds didn’t seem like they were exploding with anger, and generally, most people seemed to feel a tad less anxious than they had otherwise felt for the last six months.

Of course, as with all things Trumpian, this proved to be only the calm before a majorf*ckingsh*tstorm. In the span of a week, Donald Trump threatened a nuclear-powered state via Twitter, escalated tensions to the almost brink of war, failed to denounce White Supremacy after the horrific and tragic events in Charlottesville, Va, and, oh yeah: Basically said that Nazi’s aren’t all bad. 

Or to quote our Idiot-in-Chief directly, in his usual *eloquent* colloquialisms: “You had some very bad people in that group. But you also had people that were very fine people on both sides. You had people in that group – excuse me, excuse me. I saw the same pictures as you did. You had people in that group that were there to protest the taking down, of to them, a very, very important statue and the renaming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name.”

But you also had people that were very fine people on both sides. Well, Mr. President, I’m not sure you did see the same pictures we/I/America/the rest of the whole damn world saw, because let’s get real here: No.

And it seems that finally, finally, Republican lawmakers are saying “no,” too. According to Carl Bernstein–the famed investigative reporter who helped oust Nixon after the Watergate scandal–Republican leaders in both Congress AND the White House are on the cusp of disavowing themselves from his Presidency, due to the fact that (*ding ding*) he is probably most likely unfit to serve.

Uhh, no sh*t Sherlock. We’ll see soon if Paul Ryan does indeed have a backbone or if he lost it somewhere in the streets of Tijuana. Highly doubt it, but at least we know now that National Socialism is just a step too far for the Grand Ole’ Party. Auf wiedersehen, Cheeto.
