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.
