Punxsutawney Phil Protester as Unhinged as Donald Trump Protesters

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Punxsutawney Phil may have predicted six more weeks of winter, but a lone protester in Michigan is going viral with a dissenting message: Impeach the groundhog!


Tony Lapekas, clad in a top hat inspired by the ones worn by the famous groundhog`s handlers, stood on a Kalamazoo street corner Thursday while holding a pair of signs reading, `Impeach the groundhog!` and `#NotMyWeatherMan,` the latter of which featured a drawing of a groundhog with a line through it."


This solitary man protesting Punxsutawney Phil`s weather forecasting abilities reminds me of the millions protesting Donald Trump.

Trump has been in office less than a month, and already there are millions protesting and calling for his impeachment.

While I agree that Trump is in way over his head, we should at least give him enough time for him to demonstrate his incompetence.

Punxsutawney Phil is not my weatherman; I prefer to have my inaccurate forecast delivered by my local meteorologist. But like it or not, Donald Trump is everybody`s president. In the multiverse there are an infinite number of people in other universes saying that in an alternate universe Trump is the president - we live in that alternate reality.

You can`t maintain a perpetual state of outrage, liberals need to accept the fact that Trump is the president of the United States, and they need to calmly and methodically plan how to thwart his most outrageous policies.
