CA University Changes Name Of Impeachment Course After Right-Wingers Whine

San Diego State University is about to really make the blood of conservatives boil. They have found a very creative way to teach Article 11, Section 4 of the United States Constitution – the part that discusses impeachment – along with the 25th Amendment, which deal with removing an incapacitated or unfit president: By teaching a one-credit hour course over the span of a weekend that, at first glance, seemingly focuses on removing Donald Trump from office.

According to the school, they aren’t actually using the course and its students to scheme to remove Trump from office, but it could be viewed that way, as the course is entitled, “Trump: Impeachment, Removal or Conviction?” However, the school says that is not the intent. Here is a bit of the course description:

“Focus will be on the two constitutional grounds: impeachment and removal (25th Amendment), and the possible charges of the independent counsel, the powers of the president, a history of the creation of that office and the comparison of divine right and rule of law leadership, presidential impeachments, including Nixon’s de facto impeachment, practically limitless grounds for impeachment, presidential immunity from indictment, and grounds for impeachment, removal, or indictment covering: conflict of interests, foreign emoluments, climate change, racism, religious bias, improper influence, nepotism, and a host of crimes, including conspiracy, false statements, and obstruction of justice.”

But, alas, of course right-wing websites – specifically Campus Reform, which supposedly “exposes liberal bias” on college campuses, were outraged at the course, so the name “Trump” was dropped from the title. There, happy snowflakes?

Well, the is the first time since Richard Nixon that we have had a criminal in the Oval Office, so it is only natural that academic institutions would like to take advantage of living in such extraordinary times. And what better way to do it than to let the orange one illustrate just what should get a president removed from office? This is so perfect, It’s a shame they had to remove Trump’s name, though I am sure the material won’t change.
