1. remind me again how we remove him from office?

If by "we" you mean DUers or even Democrats in general, you seem to be unfamiliar with how things work under the Constitution.

10. except 'we' are not the whole country

1/3rd of the country (us) despise him
1/3rd hate us so much they love him because of it
1/3rd are lost in their own little worlds and can't care enough about anything to vote.

add in the city/rural divide, and it is hard to get meaningful pressure for anything via protests.

3. This is an essay I really appreciated:

This is a perspective from a Canadian:

Why are Americans So Servile to a Clown President?

Why are Americans so obedient, so servile? That isn’t the image they hope to show the world but there they are, a herd of sheep in Trump’s presence, baaa-ing approvingly.

“Everybody feels the evil, but no one has courage or energy enough to seek the cure,” Alexis de Tocqueville wrote of Americans in 1830. Again, why?

Donald Trump stumps up to the podium every day and makes a fool of himself. He spouts nonsense for hours thus replicating his now-dead campaign rallies, lying, talking nonsense, insulting women, shouting at men, threatening to fire government staff for disagreeing with him, planning vengeance on Democratic governors, pronouncing words wrong and adding numbers incorrectly, sending crude racist remarks over to China, and making his terror and neediness plain.

“Look at me,” he says, the way toddlers do when they step over the kitten rather than squashing it, “I did it!”

Shakespeare knew his Trumps, devising insults that would be wildly suitable 440 years later. “He’s a most notable coward, an infinite and endless liar, an hourly promise-breaker.” “Thou cream-faced loon! Where got’st thou that goose look?” “Nut-hook, nut-hook, you lie.” “Would thou wert clean enough to spit upon”

14. I've been noticing a trend lately,

it seems that there are several low post accounts that have laid dormant for a few years, and suddenly, they become active.

Makes one wonder what their true agenda is...............

13. How would you recommend removing him from office?

We do not have that power, except at the ballot box. I suggest we use it there.
