“You’re a highly educated, sapient man,” Carla said. “There must be a way to get them to see what a con man Trump is.”

“You know,” Edward said, “I don’t think there’s a snowball’s chance in hell of getting his rabid fans to change their almost fanatical support for him. They think he’s the second coming of Jesus, for crissake.”

“But don’t you feel,” Carla said, “that the racist things he’s been saying over the past month are starting to snip away some of his support?”

“Well,” Edward said, “we are seeing a few random Republican Congresspersons making a tentative transition away from blind, unequivocal support for him. But we’re going to need more than a handful of Republicans to be willing to stand up and be counted.”

“And were going to need the Democrats to start a formal impeachment inquiry,” Carla added.
