Title: Political analyst says Trump's base would 'go to war' for him if impeached

1/8/2019

Political analyst Bill Schneider said in an interview that aired Tuesday on "What America's Thinking" that President Trump's base would "go to war" for him if he was ever impeached.

"If you want to see the Trump base solidify and go to war, talk about impeachment," Schneider told Hill.TV's Joe Concha on "What America's Thinking."

"That will get them solidly behind Donald Trump, just as it happened with Democrats in 1998 when [former President] Clinton was impeached," he continued.

"That will happen to Trump if they impeach him," Schneider said, referring to Trump's Republican base. "It will rally his base."

Schneider's comments come as some progressive Democratic members of the House have floated the idea of impeachment.

However, the party's leaders including Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) have said impeaching Trump will not be a priority for the new Congress.

 "I do think that we want to be unified and bring people together. Impeachment is a very divisive approach to take and we shouldn’t take it ... without the facts," Pelosi told MSNBC last week.

Pelosi is waiting for Mueller's report before starting impeachment proceeding.
Republican Representatives and Republican Senators know Trump is not normal, is dangerous to this country.  I think they will vote for impeachment but will not say that until it is time for a vote.

That's funny.  I don't remember Democrats being in lock-step support and behind Bubba Clinton after the Monica Lewinsky affair and after his lying under oath.  However did I miss that...?   :shrug:

Mueller has never come forward with any inclination, proof of evidence as to any Trump/Russian collusion.

So what do you categorize as normal?  One that is proposing border security so that illegals, terrorists, drug cartels, gangs and gun runners are curtailed from entering this country or those that refuse to give funding for border security??

I would really like to know what you feel are "their" grounds for impeachment...Mueller has nothing on him.  If he did, he would have come out with the proof of evidence long before the mid term elections.

Perhaps you feel that Pence would do a much better job??  Orrin Hatch?  Pelosi??

No one will go to war. A few people may go out and waive some signs and say some really mean things on the internet, but no one these days has the balls to do anything beyond that.

I seem to remember hearing ‘narcissism’ and ‘messianic’ mentioned quite often, during his presidency. Also, his propensity to attract flies, rats, and other vermin was definitely not normal.

I'm surprised at you, corbe.  You, of all people... taking things soooo seriously here.  It's just words on a forum.  It's not life or death.... much less 'real life'.  Still, this being a conservative forum, is it really unexpected when someone gets a bit miffed when a member seemingly ok's someone like Obama while dissing Trump?  JS...

I disagree.   If anybody is mentally ill and not okay, it's Barack Hussein Obama.  He's the poster boy, IMO, of someone that cares nothing for others... let alone his fellow countrymen... but thinks rather highly of himself (narcissistic personality disorder).  If you choose to compare that to Trump's self-image, feel free.  But Trump is, at least, not busily destroying the nation from within like Obama was.   Trump has had two years to "destroy America from within" and the opposite economy has occurred.  Lower gas prices (where Barry had no problem with $5/gal gas prices), lower unemployment, growth in business, lower regulations, literally 'booming'.  So if Trump is mentally ill.... then perhaps America needs a constant, bigger dose of that illness.

I don't care one way or another about Trump except he is president.  It is my opinion he has personality disorders and should not be president.  That is not an obsession - you own that one. We are done now.

What I love about Trump is he is no nonsense.  He produces results despite immense opposition.  I don't care about all his rough edges, which were finely developed during his years of being a billionaire, I know he is fighting for the American people while both parties malinger representing illegal invading aliens.

The Dems could impeach him in the House, but never in the Senate will the Republicans support such nonsense.

And to think there will be no blood in the streets over the Democommies' efforts to destroy this nation, you might think again.  The American people by voting for Trump shouted loud that they are sick of the bullsh*t.  Dems talking heads like the morons on The View think uneducated hicks voted for Trump.  Well, yes some did, but Trump was heavily supported by highly educated people too. 

I am educated, and I would support him gladly over any of the knuckleheads we have out there that think they are better.  They are not, and the Democommie Party is the biggest clown act, all but communist in name I have seen in my years witnessing politics.  Why the field of clowns amassing to run for president on the Dems side is hysterical.  HR Clinton will wait until a good dozen announce their bid to run, and then she will announce.  The more clowns the better for her.  She holds a solid 40% base in the Democommie Party, and the other dozen or two will divide the rest.  She comes out on top easily, NO CONTEST!

And with the clown show, let Bernie Sanders run again, he will get a fraction of what he did before.  the 2016 election did not have any other viable candidates running on the Dems side.  Naturally, the NEVER CLINTONS gravitated to Sanders, but with 15 candidates running, he gets token support.

I can't wait.  The Dems will decimate each other in their desperate attempt to climb to the top of the heap, all the while Clinton takes the nomination with little effort.
