Rep. Maxine Waters, (D-CA)

African American voters want the House to impeach Trump.

It is hard to imagine better evidence refuting the silly notion that impeachment would be a political mistake for the Democrats.

One need not have a degree in political science to remember that our last Democratic president was the African American Barack Obama, the first African American to hold the office. Criticize him as you like, he won election twice and will not run again because the Constitution forbids him. He is, on that measure, a successful president.

The lesson the Democrats should learn from 2008 and 2012, and 2016, when they won the popular vote, and 2018, two years after the temporary success of the “white supremacist” rubes gave us the ultimate “white supremacist” rube as incompetent, stupid president, when a historically huge turnout returned the Democrats to control of the House of Representatives, which is the only reason we’re having this discussion, is that they win when they fire up African American voters.

Impeaching Trump would fire up African American voters. Ipso facto, impeach Trump.

Why is this hard? Impeaching Trump is the morally right thing to do, but it is also the politically astute thing to do.

Impeach Trump.
