Ms. co-founder Gloria Steinem talked to Variety magazine Tuesday about Donald Trump’s Twitter account—and the impeachment probe against him now unfolding in the House—while she walked the red carpet at the Women’s Media Center Awards in New York City.
When asked if she believed Trump should be impeached, Steinem didn’t mince words. “He was never elected,” she declared, reminding reporters that Trump received six million fewer votes in 2016 than his rival, Hillary Clinton. “He wasn’t elected by the popular vote. It’s only by the accident of the electoral college, which was lauded by the slave states in the first place.”
Pressed on Trump’s Twitter account, and his tweets last week attempting to portray House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as having a “meltdown,” Steinem dismissed the interest in analysis, stating that “he is beyond any possible rational consideration.”
