Conservative talk radio show host Rush Limbaugh dedicated time on his Friday program to mocking a deranged Huffington Post column by Thomas Jefferson School of Law professor Marjorie Cohn that President Trump’s withdrawal of the U.S. from the Paris climate deal “constitutes an impeachable offense” and crime against humanity.
Having more fun than a human being should be allowed to have, Limbaugh laughed at Cohn’s “clinical insanity”:
“Doesn’t Trump know he’s supposed to be sulking in the White House and thinking about quitting? Doesn’t Trump know that it’s over? Doesn’t Trump know? Doesn’t Trump realize we are destroying him? When is he gonna start acting like we are succeeding?” They’re going nuts — and that doesn’t even get halfway there. This is clinical insanity. Maybe I need… Today at the Huffing and Puffington Post there is a… What is this babe a professor of? She’s a law professor. Her name’s Marjorie or Marietta or something Cohn. C-O-H-N.
“These people have escaped all rationality and reason, and they are being governed — and I’m talking about the vast majority of people on the left,” Limbaugh added.
Cohn’s article was quite the rant, wasting our time with 415 words wallowing in the U.S.’s departure from Paris before her main argument (with supposed support from Alexander Hamilton):
Trump’s withdrawal from the climate agreement constitutes an impeachable offense.
The Constitution provides for impeachment of the president when he commits “High Crimes” and misdemeanors. They include, but are not limited to, conduct punishable by the criminal law.
Alexander Hamilton wrote in the Federalist No. 65 that offenses are impeachable if they “proceed from the misconduct of public men, or, in other words, from the abuse or violation of some public trust.”
“They are of a nature which may with peculiar propriety be denominated POLITICAL, as they relate chiefly to injuries done immediately to the society itself.”
