Trump declared that “the people would revolt” if he were impeached during a recent interview with Reuters about all of his impeachable crimes. This happened just before Michael Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison for tax fraud, perjury, and using campaign funds to bribe people into silence.
“It’s hard to impeach somebody who hasn’t done anything wrong and who’s created the greatest economy in the history of our country,” Trump told Reuters. “I’m not concerned, no. I think that the people would revolt if that happened.”
Trump also warned he would not work with Democrats if they continue to “do presidential harassment.” https://t.co/Gx39memzLP

If you go by the rule “the opposite of everything Trump says is the truth,” it makes a lot more sense. Alternatively, if “the people” means “the shrinking crowd of die-hard Trump fans who wouldn’t turn on him if he murdered Melania on stage” and if “revolt” means “type in all caps on social media,” then sure, the people will revolt. Of course, that’s assuming Trump knows what he’s talking about at all.
Reports surfacing that Trump has misused the word "revolt," when intending to convey "party their asses off," and may not even understand what Impeachment actually means. https://t.co/bjpXTqftkl

An impeachment that would result in Trump’s removal from office might be next to impossible while the Senate is still controlled by Republicans. However, come January, the simple majority of Democrats in the House would be enough to impeach him. There would then be a hearing in the Senate similar to a trial, and our Senators would decide whether to remove him from office. The only president ever to be impeached was Bill Clinton, for the crime of lying to the people one time. The Senate voted not to remove him from office.
If you remember when Obama was President, the Tea Party vowed between 3-30 million “patriots” would march on D.C. and arrest “that traitor Obama.”
Less than 400 showed up.
Expect the same results when Trump is impeached.

Whether he could be removed or not, an impeachment of the Peach President would be deeply satisfying and seems only fair. The only revolt anybody needs to worry about is from the young people demanding a Green New Deal, people enraged about the children still being locked in cages at the border, and possibly a revolt inspired by the “yellow vest” protests spreading across Europe if Trump keeps handing money to the rich and jacking up the already bloated military budget.
Trump is saying the people "would revolt" if he happened to be impeached.
Naw, they wouldn't, but we will revolt if you fire Mueller.

The rest of the interview devolved into something something Hillary’s emails. If I have to hear about that non-issue one more time, I’m going to revolt.
