Just How Stupid Is Donald Trump (Impeachment/Supreme Court Edition)

There's this:
Um, setting aside the false opening (Mueller is a Republican, the report refused to exonerate, etc), can I point out that the Supreme Court doesn't have any jurisdiction over Impeachment.

Let's take a look at the Constitution:
The House of Representatives shall choose their Speaker and other Officers; and shall have the sole Power of Impeachment. (Article 1, Section 2, Clause 5)
The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments. When sitting for that Purpose, they shall be on Oath or Affirmation. When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside: And no Person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two thirds of the Members present. (Article I, Section 3, Clause 6)
He's not even smart enough to know that.

Trump's stupidity never ceases to amaze me. I, too just posted a Trump-related post even though I have a severe case of R.I.N. (Republican Induced Nausea)
