Why This Law Professor Thinks It Would Be “Patriotic” For Trump To Resign

(Tea Party PAC) – In a recent column for (where else?) CNN, University of Baltimore School of Law professor F. Michael Higgenbotham made the stunningly original argument that Orange Man Bad.

In his column, he asserts that it would thus be “patriotic” for said Orange Man to resign from the White House, because he’s mean and a lot of people don’t like him.

This “patriotic move,” he argues, could “begin the process of healing” for our country.

Really? This is what the left is resorting to? Have they nothing left?

The column, which was entitled, well, “The patriotic move is for Trump to resign,” accused President Trump of participating in a “cover-up” of an investigation into his potential 2020 rival, former Vice President Joe Biden.

Naturally, Higginbotham claims that former Vice President Joe Biden is completely innocent of any wrongdoing, and there’s no other possible reason that anyone would even think of investigating old Joe unless they were terrified of them politically, right?

Meanwhile, there is substantially more evidence that it was Joe Biden who committed crimes in his dealings with Ukrainians, not President Donald Trump.

While the establishment cringes at the mere suggestion of examining Biden’s links in Ukraine, even a lengthy impeachment process including closed-door Soviet-style hearings and absolutely no constitutional rights given to the accused president, the Democrats couldn’t come up with any evidence that he’d committed any crime in his interactions with the current president of the Eastern European nation.

Weird.

Nonetheless, Higginbotham compared Trump to President Richard Nixon, who resigned in disgrace after Watergate became undeniable.

So Trump should resign because the Democrats are super duper convinced he’s bad.

Trump, Higginbotham declares, should look to Nixon, who put “country over personal considerations.”

But Nixon emphasized country over personal considerations in deciding to resign. While most historians believe the full House would have voted to impeach, and the Senate would have secured the necessary two-thirds vote for removal, the trial process would have been extremely divisive and painful for the country.

In retrospect, we will never know whether a show of stubbornness — like Trump’s — might have switched the political dynamic and persuaded the Senate to not convict, but we can instead be grateful that Nixon did not put the system to the test.

There’s only one possible choice, Higgenbotham declares! Trump absolutely must resign so we can begin “healing.”

The answer is clear: Trump should resign so the country can begin the process of healing. The divisions in the country today are even more corrosive than they were in 1974. That’s why it’s even more important that Trump emulate the best of Richard Nixon, who, in a rare moment of grace, understood he could only weaken the nation he led by focusing solely on himself, and chose the better path.

  1. No Crimes? Bullsh**! Trump the Traitor should have had the good sense to resign! Unfortunately he has no sense (dementia? syphillis in the brain?)

  2. The good professor should seriously consider resigning from his position. This would be for the good of vulnerable students who would be exposed to his drivel.

  3. I don’t care that Higgenbotham is a Law Professor. He is totally full of BS. There is absolutely no similarity between the circumstances surrounding the presidencies of Nixon and Trump. First, Nixon committed a crime and Trump did not. Second, the Democratic party was not so far left and radical as it is today. Third, the USA was not totally screwed up by the Democrats that followed Nixon’s terms in office, as it will be by the Democrats that follow Trump’s terms in office.

  4. Yes. Nixon was also a bad person lacked integrity committed high crimes
    BUT he resigned whether to save himself the humiliation and heartache of a trial or for the good of the nation our long National nightmare
    Ended.
    WHEN will this National Nightmare end? Our country is damaged 4 more years of this despicable President tragedy

  5. Hey F. Michael Higgenbotham…..YOU resign – you pathetic A…..Hole and we need to INVESTIGATE the extremely corrupt *Biden Clan* once-and-for-all!! They are very dirty and a BIG embarrassment to the Republic!!

  6. F. Michael Higginbotham seems to think that the President should resign so that the country can begin “healing”, huh? WRONG! F. Michael Higginbotham needs to resign from his undoubtedly tenured position so that colleges and universities across America can begin “healing” from an otherwise lethal overdose of Marxist bilge, drivel, dogma, indoctrination, or any other manner of brainwashing! The same can be said of anyone else in a similar position who follows the same party line!

  7. This idiot has no place in a University,,,,,what in the hell is wrong with these people,,,,a man who has kept his promises,,,(the first president since Truman) to do so,,,,his remark that a lot of people don’t like him,,,,bullshit,,,tell it like it is,,,the DUMBOCRATS don’t like him because he is stopping their destructive agenda to bring socialism to my country,,,,I have seen socialism up close and personal,,,first, they take your money,,,,then your jobs, car, homes, then your medical care,,,the only ones socialism benefit are the very top tier,,,,,maybe piglosi thinks she can ascend to the Queen of America,,,,if she isn’t careful ,,her ass will descend to the depths of hell,,,,,,

  8. A huge number of Americans hated The Fake President Obummer, yet we had to put up with him while the Left kneeled at his every stupid word and we are still being subjected to his ongoing crap. So do as we did and grin and bare it and stop your unfounded lies and unactual comments about a True President.

  9. Who is this idiot, and what kind of University would have him on staff? We love our President, so the doofus professor can stop with the nonsense.

  10. THIS LAW PROFESSOR MAKES THAT KIND OF TAKE———-WHAT AN IDIOT. WHAT TRUMP IS DOING HAS BEEN NEEDING DONE FOR A LONG TIME.
