“It’s crystal clear it was a fluke and unfortunately a terrible mistake. There are moments when I honestly feel sorry for him. OK, maybe not MOMENTS but seconds. It’s reached the point where it just pathetic,” he continued.
Keaton then claims that President Trump is unfit to be President, “As I’ve said before-pick the phrase “over his head” “lost” “incapable.” Doesn’t matter. He just can’t do it. He is so obviously unfit.
He truly blew a chance. HE DOESN’T HAVE THE STUFF.”
Keaton then calls for President Trump to resign from office, “The job is a tough one and he honestly thinks he can fake his way through it. Resign. No harm. No foul. Walk away.”
He then claims that if President Trump does indeed resign it would patriotic and that he would send him a note thanking him. Keaton wrote, “Would be very patriotic and I would personally write a note thanking him.”
Finally, Keaton concluded claiming that democracy is on the line, “I swear I’m not being condescending. It’s just the truth. It’s now or never folks. Democracy is honestly and literally in question. That’s not being dramatic. Just a fact.”
