Donald Trump may be on his presidential death-bed. Talks of impeachment following the Ukraine scandal lead many to believe the New York businessman is in his final days. Acid-wash the state of corruption. Hunt down those that look to foreign leaders to meddle in the American political process. We need pure, straightforward, old-fashioned democracy in the US. Or at least that’s what those who still have a degree of faith in the policial system say. However, Trump is nothing but a ritual sacrifice. Cutting out his heart on the altar of the holy democratic process would only serve to mask the hollow morality of Washington D.C.

House Representative Adam Schiff recently appeared on live television to read the transcript of the phone call between Trump and the president of Ukraine. Instead of reading the transcript word for word, he added what he thinks Trump would have said if he were trying to secure an election. Later on, Schiff claimed it was a parody; however, he presented legitimately at the time of his broadcast appearance.
Nevermind how it came to this, here we are: President Mike Pence. The words cut through the mouth like sawdust or jagged glass.
That Mike Pence
Trump derangement syndrome has officially reached its explosive zenith—many liberals are now clamoring for Mike Pence, one of the most socially conservative and rigidly religious men in America, to hold our highest office.
This is the same Mike Pence, who as governor of Indiana signed one of the most restrictive abortion bans in the country. It’s the same Mike Pence who made it legal for Indiana businesses to discriminate against LGBT+ customers on the shaky grounds of ‘religious freedom’. That Mike Pence would be forced to amend the legislation only a week later after a nationwide backlash threatened the economic security of the state.
