After Donald Trump and the Republican Party managed to get a man who has been accused of sexual assault by multiple women into the Supreme Court, calls to get Trump out of office have never been louder. Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation into the Supreme Court invigorated protests throughout the country as we were brutally reminded that we are living in a time where an accused serial rapist was allowed to become President of the United States.
Calls to impeach Trump or get him to resign are still strong, even almost two years into The Donald’s presidency. America isn’t backing down, and the thought of a Trump-less government is still driving most of us forward on a daily basis. This presidency has taken a toll on all of us, so we revisited one of the greatest moments in Trump criticism, which came from retired talk show host David Letterman.
In an interview with the Associated Press, Letterman signaled that he, too, was terribly exhausted and horrified by Trump’s presidency. In fact, Letterman didn’t shy away from calling for Trump to be removed from office – and he had a pretty brutal suggestion for how that should happen:
We know there’s something wrong, but what I’m tired of is people, daily, nightly, on all the cable news shows telling us there’s something wrong.
I just think we ought to direct our resources and our energies to doing something about it. And other people have made this point: If the guy was running Dairy Queen, he’d be gone. This guy couldn’t work at the Gap. So why do we have to be victimized by his fecklessness, his ignorance?”
Letterman continued, suggesting that Trump doesn’t belong in the Oval Office – he belongs in a home for senior citizens:
I wish it was Trump, but it’s not, so let’s just stop whining about what a goon he is and figure out a way to take him aside and put him in a home.”
It was a shocking suggestion, but considering the current state of Trump’s health and memory, maybe Letterman’s not too far off. Either way, Trump needs to get out of the White House.
