Talk of Donald Trump’s possible impeachment has been going on since before he entered office, and it’s not slowing down any time soon. His brash persona and serious lack of tact have only added fuel to an already raging fire.
Try as he might, Trump can’t blame his poor approval rating on “fake news.” As of July 17, 2017, Time reported that a whopping 41% thought Trump should be impeached. Not even the infamous Richard Nixon can compete with that (at the beginning of the Watergate scandal in July 1973, only 24% of Americans were in favor of impeaching him).
Countless people — celebrities, activists, and politicians alike — have publicly expressed strong disapproval for President Trump. Here, we’re highlighting just a handful of those who believe the president should be impeached or resign the office entirely. Only time will tell if their efforts are successful.
1. Stephen Colbert
Anyone not living under a rock is well-aware of the long list of celebrities Trump’s gone after. Pretty much anyone and everyone not in his corner and stroking his ego is fair game as far as Trump’s concerned.
In one heated feud, Trump’s target is late-night host Stephen Colbert. But Colbert struck back on air with a suggestion for the president. “Since all of my success is clearly based on talking about you, if you really want to take me down, there’s an obvious way: Resign,” Colbert said. “Sir, if you did that, what would I talk about then? Except your resignation, because that’d be fun.”
