Is it not time to impeach Trump?

To the editor:

Hate begets hate. We all know we need to be more compassionate in our national political dialogue. It was bad that a Democrat Congresswoman came out recently to make remarks regarding harassing Republicans in restaurants, department stores, etc. A former Democrat Attorney General recently said that when Republicans go low, we should kick them. Even though he said his words did not mean physically kick them, still it gave the Republican side of the issue “see there” comments.

One thing that is undeniably bad and leaves no possibility of misinterpretation is when the leader of our country, the President of the United States, said a few things at his continuing political rallies like …

“I would like to punch him in the face”
“Maybe he should have been roughed up”
“Knock the crap out of him would you? I promise you, I will pay your legal fees”
“The audience hit back. That’s what we need a little bit more of”
“Part of the problem is no one wants to hurt each other anymore”
I don’t know if I’ll do the fighting myself or if other people will”
“I’ll beat the crap out of you”
If you do (hurt him), I’ll defend you in court, don’t worry about it”
“Lock her up, crooked Hilary”
“CNN is the worst spreader of fake news”
John Brannon is a very bad man”

... plus many more.

Recently, President Trump praised a Congressman for body slamming a news reporter, breaking his glasses.

Yet his Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, recently stated, “the President in no way, form or fashion has ever promoted or encouraged violence.”

On October 24th, 2018, bombs started to show up at the homes and offices of Trumps perceived detractors, including two former Presidents.

It is not time to impeach the wanna be dictator and hate monger, Donald Trump?
