    Hey, Chris here -- should the impeachment process be the same for SCOTUS as it is the President?

      Dude, for fuck's sake, if you are gunna troll, be good at it. Right now I imagine you're like that fat fuck from South Park that played World of Warcraft all day. Bad troll is bad. Oh shit. I replied. Guess that means the cardinal rule. You have to suck off a goat. It's the prize for trolling. You have to do it. Do it. For all the lulz.

              A million man march should have been at the foot of the Supreme Court years ago. The SCOTUS has become entirely factional, with no regard for the nation's interest or the Constitution. Just the corporations. With some Justices appointed just to protect Trump! This crowd today is voicing what American democracy is really supposed to be (and hasn't ever been quite yet, as long as we've had the Electoral College instead of the Popular vote deciding our races), and any right-wingers out there decrying their words have no business calling themselves patriots, or believers in democracy. Fascism has sunk its teeth into all 3 branches of our government - now to the point of compromising national security by outsourcing our system to enemy foreign powers! - and we the People have to remove those teeth!

                Short answer:

                NO he’s NEVER going to be impeached, you need 66 votes, that’s right, SITXTY 👏 FUCKING 👏 SIX 👏 votes in the senate to impeachment and remove a Supreme Court justice so stop talking about this subject like it’s something that’s actually possible.

I was a Democrat for years but after Bill Clinton, I changed because of all the hypocrisy and lies. The Democrat Party is a joke at best, a disgrace at worst.
