President Donald Trump threw yet another hissy fit over being impeached during his Colorado rally Thursday night and claimed that former President Barack Obama is the one who should be impeached.
Trump is desperately trying to save Senators Martha McSally (R-Ariz.) and Cory Gardner (R-Co.), who are both sinking in the polls after their vote to acquit him in a rigged impeachment trial.
And so, Trump has held campaign rallies in both states this week.
During his rally in Colorado, Trump made a bizarre declaration that Obama is the one who should be impeached, not him, over Obamacare.
“We should impeach him! We should impeach him! Impeach Obama!” Trump proclaimed as the MAGA cult cheered.
Of course, former presidents cannot be impeached because impeachment is only a mechanism to remove a sitting president.
Furthermore, Obama did not commit any crimes to warrant being impeached. Unlike Trump, who abused his power to extort Ukraine into targeting his political rivals and obstructed Congress to cover it up.
Trump then claimed that nobody ever called for Obama to be impeached.
“Get him out of office. Nobody thought of that,” Trump said. “We caught him in a lie but nobody said impeach him.”

Once again, this is where an old tweet comes back to bite Trump on the a** because it turns out he called for Obama to be impeached back in 2014.
Are you allowed to impeach a president for gross incompetence?

Obama was never incompetent. Trump, however, displays that trait every day. If presidents can be impeached for incompetence, the House should pass articles of impeachment every day, especially since Trump apparently does not understand how impeachment works.
