RESOLVED, that the President of the United States (“the President”), is impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors, and that the following articles of impeachment be exhibited to the United States Senate:

ARTICLE I

WHEREAS, on the eve of the President’s inauguration, a full moon shone like a beacon against the ink-black darkness of a starless night; and

WHEREAS, the President was seen walking alone across the National Mall that night, an ominous fog swirling around his ankles, his footfalls echoing off the cold marble edifice of the Lincoln Memorial; and

WHEREAS, a werewolf emerged from the shadows behind the President, its pelt matted with dead leaves and encrusted with dried gore; and

WHEREAS, the President turned at the sound of claws clicking on pavement, his voice quivering as he called out, “Who’s there?”; and

WHEREAS, after a pause just long enough to make the President wonder whether his mind was playing tricks on him, the werewolf leapt from the darkness; and

WHEREAS, the President’s Secret Service detail heard the President’s anguished cries, and opened fire on the lupine form that was hunched over the President’s body; and

WHEREAS, the werewolf whipped its head in the direction of the gunshots, its yellow eyes aglow with the firelight of an ancient evil; and

WHEREAS, the werewolf let out a bloodcurdling howl of pain and rage as it disappeared into the night; now, therefore, be it

RESOLVED that the President has been infected with viral lycanthropy, the primary symptom of which is an involuntary metamorphosis into a bloodthirsty man-wolf when the moon is full.

ARTICLE II

WHEREAS, approximately one month later, the next lunar cycle again brought the moon to its fullest form; and

WHEREAS, the President was exposed to the moonlight through the window of the Oval Office; and

WHEREAS, the President looked down at the mobile phone in his hands and was shocked to see thick black hair growing from his knuckles; and

WHEREAS, the President struggled to tap out the last few letters of his tweet (“SAD!”) due to the long claws that were emerging from his fingertips; and

WHEREAS, the back of the President’s oversized suit jacket split open, his spine arching and twisting under a pelt of newly-sprouted fur; and

WHEREAS, the front of the President’s face transmogrified into an elongated, snout-like form, his human teeth morphing into rows of flesh-tearing canines; and

WHEREAS, the President’s ears slid towards the top of his head, while growing into points and turning forward like some kind of fucked-up German Shepard; and

WHEREAS, the President’s eyes rolled back in his head, then rolled forward again to reveal irises the color of eternal hellfire; and

WHEREAS, the President let forth the howl of a wolf driven mad by its unquenchable thirst for human blood; now, therefore, be it

RESOLVED that the President exhibits all the classic symptoms of being a werewolf, including, but not limited to, actually turning into a goddamned werewolf.

ARTICLE III

WHEREAS, upon hearing the howl, the Vice President looked up at the NRA lobbyist he was fellating and asked, “Did you hear that?”; and

WHEREAS, the Vice President resisted the NRA lobbyist’s pleas not to stop, and instead crept cautiously from his office; and

WHEREAS, the Vice President noticed what seemed to be large paw prints pressed into the cream-colored carpet leading from the Oval Office; and

WHEREAS, the Vice President followed the paw prints down the hall, around the corner, and into the Roosevelt Room; and

WHEREAS, the Vice President came face-to-face with the President in wolf-form, his over-long red tie still knotted around his neck; and

WHEREAS, the Wolf-President’s lips curled back to reveal a muzzle full of razor sharp teeth; and

WHEREAS, the Vice President opened his mouth to scream, but was unable to produce a sound before the President seized his throat and tore it from his body; and

WHEREAS, after devouring the Vice President in his entirety, the President leapt through the window of the Roosevelt Room and disappeared into the night; now, therefore, be it

RESOLVED that the President has acted in a manner contrary to his trust as President, subversive of constitutional government, and to the manifest of injury of the people of the United States, especially the Vice President, who, as mentioned above, was eaten.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the President, by such conduct warrants impeachment and trial, and removal from office.

AND BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the President, if spotted while in wolf form, should be shot using one or more bullets fashioned from silver and fired from a government-approved firearm.

AND BE IT FINALLY RESOLVED that the above Articles of Impeachment shall be rendered null and void in the case of a resurgence of the centuries-old war between vampires and werewolves, during which having a werewolf President may offer certain strategic advantages for subduing the marauding vampire hordes, once and for all.
