Civics 101 for Trump & Company

Yesterday or today Trump tweeted that the House of Representatives didn’t have the power to impeach him. Instantly I thought of the standard triangular graphic that appears in absolutely every high school government or civics textbook.

There has never been a public school student who sat in one of the aforementioned classes and didn’t see something that closely resembled the attached graph. And, as they saw the graphic,

probably via an overhead projector, the teacher pointed out the various arrows that show in a very simple way, some of the powers that each branch has to check or control the behavior of the others.

Everybody got a lecture on CHECKS & BALANCES!

If you’ve never seen this graphic you’ve never sit in a civics or government class. If you’ve never sat in one of these classes you sure as hell shouldn’t be president.
