The Conspiracy Theorist In Chief

The Washington Post reports that the 45th President appears to be getting many of his ideas in what's happening in the world from the InfoWars conspiracy theory site. Or rather, it should perhaps be said that they've joined others in noting this state of affairs, including CNN, NPR, and The New Yorker.

That crazy uncle or grandpa who rattles off conspiracy theories and makes family gatherings uncomfortable? There appears to be one sitting behind the desk in the Oval Office.

So much has already been horribly bungled by the Conspiracy Theorist In Chief.

It is not too soon to consider impeachment. Enough time has passed. A serious case has been made based on the foreign-emoluments clause. A serious case can be made based on gross incompetence. And a serious case can be made based on profoundly questionable mental health and inadequate reasoning capacity.

It is, as Theodore Roosevelt said of then-President Wilson, "even more important to tell the truth, pleasant or unpleasant, about him than about anyone else."

And the truth is that it's time for Congress to begin impeachment hearings regarding the 45th President.
