Great Minds Think Alike

95B134E4-C385-4CCB-A520-5D551205FDFFIt took ten months, but sooner or later it was bound to happen. Three of the four daily one-word prompts I follow — my Fandango’s One-Word Challenge, the Your Daily Word Prompt, and the Ragtag Daily Prompt — chose the word  “fool” in recognition that today is April Fool’s Day. The one outlier was the Word of the Day Challenge, where the word is “down.”

Hey, I’m no fool, so I’m down with that.

    Down with Trump and Pence. This is a topic for which they can both be impeached. (I suppose there’s a question, though, of whether lawmakers who would vote on said impeachment have entangled themselves in the whole mess too.)

    Supporting a Coup in Venezuela

    In his conduct while President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, in violation of his constitutional oath to faithfully execute the office of President of the United States and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in violation of his constitutional duty under Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution “to take care that the laws be faithfully executed,”

    And in his conduct while Vice President of the United States, Michael Richard Pence, in violation of his oath to faithfully execute the office of Vice President of the United States and to support and defend the Constitution of the United States,

    have damaged the rule of law and endangered international security by supporting a coup attempt in Venezuela.

    On the evening of January 22, 2019, following years of damaging U.S. sanctions against Venezuela, which followed an unsuccessful 2002 U.S.-supported coup attempt, Vice President Pence reportedly called Juan Guaidó and told him that the United States would support him if he were to seize power in Venezuela. The next day, January 23, Guaidó attempted to do so. That same day, President Trump issued a statement recognizing Guaidó as the President of Venezuela, despite the fact that Venezuela had an elected president and that Guaidó had no legitimate claim to the presidency. On January 24, 2019, the Trump-Pence administration attempted unsuccessfully to persuade the Organization of American States to recognize Guaidó as president.

    In the above and related actions and decisions, President Donald J. Trump and Vice President Michael Richard Pence have acted in a manner contrary to their trust as President and Vice President, and subversive of constitutional government, to the prejudice of the cause of law and justice and to the manifest injury of the people of the United States. Wherefore, President Donald J. Trump and Michael Richard Pence, by such conduct, are guilty of an impeachable offense warranting removal from office.

    No, this isn’t an April fool’s joke.

    There is a second part to that expression that is rather apt considering the words chosen. “Great minds think alike and fools seldom differ”. 🙂

    Is this the first duplicate? At least it was much easier to work them all in together in one post.
