As Twitchy reported, major media outlets are still interviewing therapists and pushing out stories about “Trump Anxiety Disorder,” but lest sufferers take any solace in their belief that the president will be impeached as a result of the Mueller probe, New York Times columnist Frank Bruni stepped up Saturday to remind them that impeachment would result only in President Mike Pence, which likely would be even worse.

Bruni writes:

There are problems with impeaching Donald Trump. A big one is the holy terror waiting in the wings.

That would be Mike Pence, who mirrors the boss more than you realize. He’s also self-infatuated. Also a bigot. Also a liar. Also cruel.

To that brimming potpourri he adds two ingredients that Trump doesn’t genuinely possess: the conviction that he’s on a mission from God and a determination to mold the entire nation in the shape of his own faith, a regressive, repressive version of Christianity. Trade Trump for Pence and you go from kleptocracy to theocracy.

Wow, he sounds awful. We’d better do everything we can to keep Trump in office and healthy.

Don’t scoff — Mueller’s going to take them all down and we’re going to re-do the election.
