How “Dumbed Down” Has America Become? Here Are 30 People That Actually Believe Trump Is No Longer President

How “Dumbed Down” Has America Become? Here Are 30 People That Actually Believe Trump Is No Longer President by Michael Snyder for End of the American Dream

TDC Note – What’s truly sad is the one tweet I highlighted from the article has 1,100+ “likes” – which means 1,100+ people believe this lie and accept it as truth.

I knew that Americans were dumb, but I didn’t think it was this bad.  In the hours after President Trump was impeached by the House of Representatives, thousands of people immediately began wildly celebrating on social media because “Trump is not the president anymore”.  But of course that is not true at all.  Two-thirds of the Senate will have to vote to convict Trump in order to remove him from office, and at this point that seems exceedingly unlikely.  Anyone that has received even the most basic education about the U.S. Constitution should know this, so how is it possible that there are vast hordes of people out there that actually believe that Donald Trump is no longer the president of the United States?

This is yet another example that demonstrates how spectacularly our system of public education has failed.  Not too long ago, I wrote an article about a recent study that found that 15-year-old students in China are nearly four full grade levels ahead of 15-year-old students in the United States in math.  The rest of the world is running circles around us, and our population is getting more “dumbed down” with each passing year.

But you have to be a very special kind of stupid to actually think that Donald Trump is no longer our president.

The following are 30 actual Twitter posts that were posted shortly after the impeachment votes were taken, and the level of idiocy displayed is absolutely chilling.  Since I am importing these tweets directly from Twitter, only the links may show up if you are getting this article in your email or reading it on another website.  If all of the tweets are not displaying properly and you want to see them, just visit the original article.  And now that I have gotten that out of the way, here are the tweets…

I could almost feel my eyeballs burning as I read those tweets because of the extreme level of stupidity displayed in them.

Are Americans really this ignorant?

And the truth is that Trump has not actually officially been impeached yet.  The following explanation of this point comes from Bloomberg

But an indefinite delay would pose a serious problem. Impeachment as contemplated by the Constitution does not consist merely of the vote by the House, but of the process of sending the articles to the Senate for trial. Both parts are necessary to make an impeachment under the Constitution: The House must actually send the articles and send managers to the Senate to prosecute the impeachment. And the Senate must actually hold a trial.

If the House does not communicate its impeachment to the Senate, it hasn’t actually impeached the president. If the articles are not transmitted, Trump could legitimately say that he wasn’t truly impeached at all.

That’s because “impeachment” under the Constitution means the House sending its approved articles of to the Senate, with House managers standing up in the Senate and saying the president is impeached.

For now, Nancy Pelosi are her minions are warning that they may delay sending the articles of impeachment to the Senate, and that delay could potentially last for an extended period of time.
