Democratic candidate for President, former Vice President Joe Biden is finally asking for the impeachment of President Trump. Though Biden is no fan of the ‘man in the White House’, (as Whoppi Goldberg refers to Trump), he has never addressed the issue of Trump’s impeachment directly.
Today in Rochester, New Hampshire, he did just that. He called for out right impeachment of Trump on the basis that his behavior is unacceptable.
“He believes he can and will get away with anything he does. We all laughed when he said he could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot someone and get away with it. It’s no joke. He’s shooting holes in the Constitution, and we cannot let him get away with it.”
What might have caused this change of campaign strategy for Joe Biden? Does it have to do with Nancy Pelosi’s decision to begin impeachment proceedings? I doubt it. My political brain tells me that it has more to do with the recent NBC poll released yesterday, that shows his Democratic rival Elizabeth Warren with a slight lead in the national 2020 poll.

Elizabeth Warren, like Kamala Harris and others, have been calling for the impeachment of Trump from the word go. They have never been on the fence regarding this matter. In fact, the most recent NBC poll also shows that the majority of Americans are in agreement with them. Shortly after it was released, Biden went with the majority, and called for Trump’s impeachment.
Warren has not wavered in her campaign approach. She has never been afraid to call Trump out on his unacceptable behavior. In fact, she has been focused on convincing the electorate of all her plans. Something tells me, based on what we see so far on the campaign trail, she is making in roads and she has a plan for Trump in 2020!
