If Trump is forced to resign or impeached and convicted, there will be a lot of Americans who are angry about it and that believe it amounts to an unconstitutional coup. So what?
Will these people be a problem? I imagine that some of them will be. I can foresee some civil unrest, even some violence. But it’s not like we should be intimidated. And what can we do about it anyway?
This isn’t a time for handwringing or cowardice, and I don’t see why it matters that Trump is going to make this as painful as possible. Of course he is.
What matters is whether this country still has enough of a pulse and enough self-respect to take care of the problem we have in the White House. Pretty much nothing else matters at all.Without any doubt, Americans today have as vital a job to do as have few Americans in our history: to defend our democracy and the rule of law and make sure they survive this existential threat that we've been saddled with.
