I believe that the continuing day-to-day shocked and astonished analyses are becoming so consistent that their usefulness is questionable other than as a record. The record is important, of course, but the daily white, male, Trump World nonsense should no longer shock, and the strained attempts at analysis are beside the point. When we have the President of the United States tweeting defensively (there is no chaos!) or aggressively (lowest rated Oscars ever), every day, prompting continuing astonishment from the media and when we have scandalous stories (porn star payoffs and lawsuits, resignations and firings, as well as regulatory and judicial outrages) that would have doomed politicians of the past, it is tempting to interpret it all as complex. It is not. There is one problem and only one Constitutional solution: If Donald Trump is allowed to finish his term in office, his pernicious effect will be permanent. As unlikely as it may be, impeachment is still our best hope and our most productive and positive goal. To a world increasingly aware of the rudderless nature of the this ship of state, the impeachment of President Trump would signal the American people’s rescue of their democracy (“One Republican is speaking out about Trump’s alleged hush money payment: Mark Sanford,” March 7).
