Here’s one you don’t see every day. Two Obama cronies telling the left they’re cocoa for Cuckoo Puffs for going wild with impeachment threats against the Orange One. Yeah, not joking at all:
Former Obama administration officials David Axelrod and Eric Holder shocked and confused Democrats when they argued that Trump’s impeachment should not be front and center going into the 2018 midterm elections.
Axelrod, who was a senior advisor in the Obama White House before leaving to be the top strategist for his successful re-election campaign, started by warning against using impeachment — or the threat of impeachment — as a “political tool.”
Dems should NOT commit to impeachment unless & until there’s a demonstrable case for one.
It is not just a matter of politics. It’s a matter of principle.
If we “normaiize” impeachment as a political tool, it will be another hammer blow to our democracy.https://t.co/vTcaDfknlC

And former Obama Attorney General Eric Holder was in complete agreement.
Ax is exactly right. Midterms can be, among other things, a referendum on this Administration, its policies and its supporters – at federal and state levels. Midterms should not be centered around questions of impeachment. https://t.co/EHQE8jQkPU

Wow, leftists with some semblance of principle. I’ve now seen it all.
Keep in mind, Axelrod and Holder are about as pro-Trump as Michael Moore is svelte. Yet, they’re willing to admit impeaching the Trumpinator “just because” is a move befitting a lobotomized Cro-Magnon. There may be some hope for us after all.
Other leftists think “I don’t like him” is a valid reason for ousting a democratically-elected official. After all, in their eyes the people need saving from themselves. They think they’re righting the ship us idiotic plebes steered toward an iceberg. The problem, like Axelrod says, is doing so would create a craptastic precedent.
If leftists impeach Trump because they don’t like his face, suddenly every politician is facing impeachment proceedings. “Ted Cruz gave me side-eye at the vending machine. Impeach!” “Nancy Pelosi called Mitch McConnell ‘Turtle Boy’ in the ladies’ room. Impeach!” Not a can of worms anyone with a functioning frontal lobe wants to open.
Here’s a tip. If you’ve got two dedicated Obama flunkies saying leftists are batsh*t for impeaching without cause, it’s best to take them at their word.
