Hilarious: Huffington Post Piece Declares Trump Leaving Paris Deal ‘Is An Impeachable Offense’

Conservative talk radio show host Rush Limbaugh dedicated time on his Friday program to mocking a deranged Huffington Post column by Thomas Jefferson School of Law professor Marjorie Cohn that President Trump’s withdrawal of the U.S. from the Paris climate deal “constitutes an impeachable offense” and crime against humanity.

Having more fun than a human being should be allowed to have, Limbaugh laughed at Cohn’s “clinical insanity”:

“Doesn’t Trump know he’s supposed to be sulking in the White House and thinking about quitting? Doesn’t Trump know that it’s over? Doesn’t Trump know? Doesn’t Trump realize we are destroying him? When is he gonna start acting like we are succeeding?” They’re going nuts — and that doesn’t even get halfway there. This is clinical insanity. Maybe I need… Today at the Huffing and Puffington Post there is a… What is this babe a professor of? She’s a law professor. Her name’s Marjorie or Marietta or something Cohn. C-O-H-N.

“These people have escaped all rationality and reason, and they are being governed — and I’m talking about the vast majority of people on the left,” Limbaugh added.

Cohn’s article was quite the rant, wasting our time with 415 words wallowing in the U.S.’s departure from Paris before her main argument (with supposed support from Alexander Hamilton):

Trump’s withdrawal from the climate agreement constitutes an impeachable offense.

The Constitution provides for impeachment of the president when he commits “High Crimes” and misdemeanors. They include, but are not limited to, conduct punishable by the criminal law.

Alexander Hamilton wrote in the Federalist No. 65 that offenses are impeachable if they “proceed from the misconduct of public men, or, in other words, from the abuse or violation of some public trust.”

“They are of a nature which may with peculiar propriety be denominated POLITICAL, as they relate chiefly to injuries done immediately to the society itself.”

Expressing fear like a true liberal snowflake, Cohn fretted that voters are supposed to “trust the president to act in their best interests and protect them from harm,” but Trump’s decision on global warming has “violat[ed] the trust that ‘We the People’ have placed in him.”

How, you ask, does Cohn arrive at that conclusions? By making predictions that may or may not happen:

If the climate continues to change at a rapid rate, society itself will be injured. As the glaciers melt and the oceans swell, the land will recede. Crops will die. Mosquitos will increasingly carry diseases. The Earth will be hit with massive floods, devastating heat waves and drought. Polar bears will become extinct. People will lose their lands, their homes and their lives. Indeed, life as we know it will come to an end.

(….)

Moreover, by withdrawing the United States from the climate accord, Trump has committed a crime against humanity, which also constitutes a High Crime.

Cohn earlier invoked the Constitution and the Federalist Papers, but the far-left Huffington Post contributor later went full-fledged globalist, touted the definition of crimes against humanity from the International Crime Court (ICC).

If you thought this piece couldn’t get any more ridiculous, you’re sadly mistaken! Cohn provided this quote from lefty loon Tom Engelhardt, who dubbed being against climate change as “the ultimate ‘crime against humanity’” and thus “terracide.”

Mercifully, she concluded:

It takes 51 percent of the House of Representatives to impeach the president. Republicans control a majority of the seats in the House. But imperiling the planet should not be a partisan issue.

The fact that virtually every other country in the world, as well as U.S. states and cities, corporations and activists worldwide are taking steps on their own to slow the changing climate does not absolve Trump from his crime.

It is incumbent upon the House of Representatives to vote for the impeachment of Trump.

Meanwhile, we must, and will, continue to build the global climate justice movement.
