Overturn the results of the election?

The Russpublicans keep chanting about overturning the will of the people. In 2018, we had a fucking nationwide referendum. The entire House was up for election. The turnout was the highest for a midterm election since 1914 and the Democrats margin was +8.5%. I think the people have spoken pretty clearly.

1. I'm so sick of them saying this crap, you know what? I hope someday

they do nullify his 2016 election, since it was clearly stolen.

2. In 2016, the will of the people ...

... was overturned when the electoral college gave the presidency to the loser of the popular vote.

When are people going to understand that impeaching and removing a president is NOT overturning an election. Were that the case (and right now, I wish it were), it would mean that everything that president did in office would be erased - including every judge appointed, and every piece of legislation he signed into law.

Removing Trump from office would be no different than removing the corrupt CEO of a corporation - it doesn't 'overturn' his having been hired in the first place; it simply terminates his employment.

3. To overturn the results of the 2016 election, you would have to...

- Install Hillary Clinton as president
- Replace Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, and all of Trump's federal court appointees with judges of Hillary's choosing
- Rejoin the Paris climate treaty
- Repeal the massive tax cut for billionaires
- Move our troops back into position to defend our Kurdish allies in Syria.

etc, etc, etc, etc, etc.

Trump's impeachment does not bring about any of those things.

"Overturn the election results". What morons.

7. So it wasn't overturning the will of the people when they impeached Clinton

over lying about a consensual BJ?

Since when did these assholes start caring about the will of the people? The only people whose wills they care about are their ueber-wealthy American and Russian bosses.
