Dug-in. Defensive. That is what Pumpkin's core of support is, and there are a few basic reasons why. I think the top reason is, he makes their racism seem a little more OK. Even though they know it's evil.
So nothing he does, nothing he says, nothing he is, will shift that very much.
The only solution will be a sound thumping at the polls. That's right, I am leaning to the side that says not to impeach. First, Mike Pence will do even more damage per week than Pumpkin does.
And the last thing this racist band of Americans should be given is, a martyr.
