Well, this was clever, so kudos to the time and effort it took to get this just right.
Or was it coincidence?
Daniel Kammen, the science envoy for the U.S. State Department announced his resignation today, in protest of Trump’s response to the violence caused by white nationalists in Charlottesville.
Kammen, a professor with the University of California, Berkeley is decidedly left, so maybe his resignation will, ultimately, not be a bad thing.
From the letter, dated August 23, 2017:
Kammen said it is particularly troubling to him that Trump’s response to Charlottesville is “consistent with a broader pattern of behavior that enables sexism and racism, and disregards the welfare of Americans, the global community and the planet.”
“Examples of this destructive pattern have consequences on my duties as Science Envoy,” he said.
Ok. Fair enough.
Here is the entire letter. Check each paragraph carefully, then tell me what you see.
Mr. President, I am resigning as Science Envoy. Your response to Charlottesville enables racism, sexism, & harms our country and planet. pic.twitter.com/eWzDc5Yw6t

Did you spot it?
No, not the silly virtue signaling about climate change.
If you figured out that Kammen began each paragraph with letters that eventually spell out “IMPEACH,” you are correct.
Now, we can write this off as just more liberal wish-casting, and we wouldn’t be wrong.
That being said, kudos for the very inventive way of bundling the message.
