(TheRedWire.com) – Crazy Bernie is at it again. In the 2020 Democratic primary, Democratic Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) tried to establish himself as the primary opponent to President Trump. He lost the Democratic primary, but he’s still at it. On Monday evening, January 11, Sanders argued that since Trump was banned from social media, he should be banned from elective office as well.
Let's be clear. If Trump is too dangerous to send out a tweet or a Facebook post, he's too dangerous to be commander-in-chief. Donald Trump must be removed from office immediately and held accountable for his horrific acts of sedition, violence and chaos.

Twitter and Facebook banned the president last Friday, claiming they feared he would incite a violent insurrection. On Wednesday, January 13, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is expected to debate impeachment in the House. The article of impeachment charges Trump with “incitement of insurrection.” However, some Constitutional scholars question if a “snap” impeachment is appropriate or unconstitutional.
Speaking as a voice of reason, Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) said on Monday night that impeachment was “ill-advised” and that the votes to convict were not in the Senate.
Manchin added that impeachment would only serve to divide the country further and cause more fighting.
