Funny Steyn to Maxine Waters: 'Tweeting Isn't Grounds for Impeachment'
Mark Steyn reacted to Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) again calling for President Trump's impeachment.
He also commented on Zimbabwe authoritarian President Robert Mugabe being placed under house arrest.
Trump may have his foot on the necks of every Rep in this House. But he will not stop the justice Mueller will bring #Getreadyforimpeachment

Steyn said that he didn't understand why Waters led a chant of "Impeach 45" during a recent awards show.

"OK. You have to be a congressman to forward articles of impeachment. Go ahead, make my day," he said, noting that the audience, as simply citizens, have no power in the matter.
"At some point people actually have to call their bluff," he said, calling Waters' repeated impeachment calls "extreme."
Steyn said one can only push things to the extreme "so far" before they ruin the ability for Congress to govern.
"Tweeting isn't grounds for impeachment," he said.
Tucker Carlson asked Steyn why younger Democrats are gravitating toward former Vice President Joe Biden as a 2020 presidential contender.
Steyn riffed that septuagenarians like Biden, Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) can look to Zimbabwe and Mugabe as reason to say it is still their time to govern.
He pointed to the 93-year-old leader and said that being an elderly candidate by U.S. standards isn't the same in other places.
"So, if you're Bernie or Hillary... you're thinking 'well, look at old Bob over in Harare, I've got another two decades before they put me under house arrest," he said.
