Andrew Johnson Haiku

Impeach this racist,

Ill-tempered, incompetent –

Wait, what year is this?

The impeachment of President Johnson failed by one fucking vote 150 years today, even though, at that time, he was the worst. Hopefully, the US government can do better the next time impeachment comes up.

One of the ways Johnson reminds me me of Trump is how he was so contemptuous of a certain class (the Southern gentry in Johnson’s case, the Washington elite in Trump’s), but was so desperate to be accepted and lauded by that class. Another way is how he used to get into shouting matches with hecklers. Imagine if he had access to Twitter.
