Rush Limbaugh predicted that Donald Trump would face impeachment talk on “Day Two” of his presidency — and that was before Trump swept the so-called swing states to win the office. Limbaugh isn’t one to underestimate a frenzy — he’s more of an inciter type. But here Limbaugh’s prediction looks uncharacteristically laid back: Trump impeachment talk has more than begun and Day Two of a Trump presidency is still months away.
Talking to a caller back in March, Limbaugh said “They’ll be talking impeachment on day two, after the first Trump executive order.” Today a search for “Trump impeachment” brings back nearly 10 million results. Even the Times conservative columnist David Brooks has predicted Trump will be impeached. Limbaugh, perhaps surprisingly, said it would be congressional Republicans that would get in Trump’s way. “Trump, if he wins, will be a Republican,” said Limbaugh, “and if he does authoritarian stuff that the Democrats want, then I guarantee you the Republicans will stand up and stop him. He’s not African-American. He’s not a minority. They won’t be worried about any of that.”
