LISTEN TO TLR’S LATEST PODCAST:
By Jacob Bojesson
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.
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.”
