Twelve People Want the President Impeached. It Becomes a News Story.

In Atlanta, twelve people decided to have an “Impeach Trump” protest. You can see the pictures yourself. There were more signs than people. The protests were organized across the country.

What is so funny is how few people showed up, but this was a news story. It just goes to show how in this hyper-partisan atmosphere the media will fixate on stuff, including protests where hardly anyone shows up.

Polling may show an even split on whether the President should be impeached, but at this point it does not matter. The votes are not there. And much of it is partisan animosity.

The hilarious part of the protest linked to above it that it is from some group called “Refuse Fascism Atlanta” that believes the future will be “cruel and brutal” under a “Trump/Pence Regime.” Really? We are six months in and it does not seem so bad.

And if it was really going to be cruel and brutal, you wouldn’t see twelve protestors on the street, let alone getting media coverage of their protest.
