It can be pretty easy to feel alone in the fight against Donald Trump sometimes, with new information coming out every day, and the media largely still talking about it theoretically as though Robert Mueller didn’t flip someone inside the White House. Like taking crazy pills sometimes, honestly.
And then you have days like Sunday, when a Democrat from Tennessee – home of the would-be hero but ultimate sellout Republican Bob Corker – gets on national television and says what every single one of us is thinking every time we see news about Trump anywhere.
House Democrat Steve Cohen spoke for me and literally everyone in my life on MSNBC Sunday morning during an interview where he was discussing a tweet he’d sent out early that morning:
He golfs when he could be reading or be in church or be with his family. Never see him with Barron. You’d think he’d be golfing with Dad occasionally but narcissists only engage in activities where they are the show. No movies, sports viewing either just Fox! He will start a war! https://t.co/RFuJksiQyk

It’s hard to argue with any of that, but the host pressed him on the tweet, asking if he really thought Trump might start a war. Cohen expounded:
Donald Trump is the most despicable human being to ever reside in 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. A narcissistic sociopath doesn’t change. It endangers the country. And war…is something he could get into to improve the ratings for the  elections, where they [Republicans] are in desperate shape.”
Cohen was one of the Democrats who introduced articles of impeachment against Trump a little more than a month ago, including for obstruction of justice, violation of the emoluments clause of the Constitution, and being a danger to America.
I personally would urge patience on impeachment — far better, after all, to let the investigation run its course and find out if he was elected legally in the first place, so that we could simply declare a constitutional crisis and hold a new election, reversing all of the damage he’s done immediately.
But Cohen has his ways, and from the tone of this interview, he’s not planning on slowing down anytime soon.
