Josef Joffe, the editor-publisher of German weekly Die Zeit, suggests the easiest way to end the “Trump catastrophe” is to murder the president in the White House.
As The Daily Caller's Jacob Bojesson reports Joffe joined panel show ARD-Presseclub to answer questions from the public. A viewer called in to ask if it was possible to impeach President Donald Trump and end the “catastrophe.”
“There has to be a qualified two-thirds majority of the Senate in order for a removal of office to take place,” a female panelist responded.
“These are politically and legally pretty high hurdles, a lot would have to happen for it, we’re far away from that.”
Joffe then jumped in with a calm response.
"Murder in the White House, for example,” he said.
Joffe recently authored an op-ed in The Guardian where he argues Trump will do “untold damage to Europe.”
The president elect praises Brexit, cosies up to Putin and promises to take an axe to Nato and established trading systems. Prepare for a remake of the 1930s...
Won’t reality bite? Yes, it will. But the 20th century whispers that it may not bite in time, as the depression and the rise of the Pied Pipers of authoritarianism suggest. In the next four years, Trump can do impressive damage. The upside today is that the demagogues of the 1930s did not have to stand for re-election.
One wonders if Joffe and Madonna should get together (in a cell).
