Trump Says He’s Unimpeachable Because He’s the ‘Greatest’ ‘Most Successful’ President

All the talk of indictments and impeachments appears to be getting inside somebody’s head. In a bizarre statement, even for Donald Trump’s Twitter feed, the president on Friday morning wrote: “How do you impeach a president who has won perhaps the greatest election of all time, done nothing wrong (no Collusion with Russia, it was the Dems that Colluded), had the most successful first two years of any president, and is the most popular Republican in party history 93%?” It’s unclear why being in the “greatest election of all time” would make him immune to impeachment, or by what measure he rates the last two years “the most successful first two years of any president.” The 93 percent rating is incorrect. A recent survey put his approval among Republicans overall at 85 percent. Among those who identified as strongly Republican that was 93 percent, but those voters make up less than half of the Republican electorate and just 18 percent of likely U.S. voters. Trump’s overall approval rating among not-so-strong Republicans was just 72 percent. And as for collusion with Russia—well, that's for Special Counsel Robert Mueller to decide.
