Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN-09) has come unhinged on Twitter over President Trump’s historic summit with Kim Jong Un in Singapore earlier this week.

While there is certainly room for skepticism as to how much trust to place in North Korea’s leaders on the heels of their meeting with President Donald Trump, a new PEW research poll shows overwhelming support for the talks among the public as a whole.

Americans overwhelmingly support direct talks between the United States and North Korea over its nuclear program. About seven-in-ten (71%) approve of these talks, while just 21% disapprove. However, the public is skeptical about whether North Korea’s leaders are serious about addressing concerns over its nuclear program.

Changing views on whether U.S. does too much – or too little – globally. Americans are now evenly split over whether the U.S. does too little (33%), too much (30%) or the right amount (29%) to solve world problems; that is a change from two years ago, when the plurality view (41%) was that the U.S. did too much globally. The shift has been driven by changes among partisans: Republicans and Republican-leaning independents increasingly say the U.S. is doing the right amount globally, while Democrats and Democratic leaners increasingly think the U.S. is doing too little to solve world problems.

That stands in stark contrast to Rep. Cohen, who took to Twitter in a crazed series of tweets and re-tweets against the summit. But then, crazy isn’t new to Cohen, who is also intent on impeaching President Trump back in November of 2017.

U.S. Congressman Steve Cohen (D-TN-09) and other House Democrats on Wednesday filed five Articles of Impeachment against President Donald J. Trump.

“The time has come to make clear to the American people and to this President that his train of injuries to our Constitution must be brought to an end through impeachment,” the congressman from Tennessee’s 9th District said in a press release. “I believe there is evidence that he attempted to obstruct an investigation into Russia’s interference with the U.S. presidential election and links between between Russia and the Trump campaign, most notably the firing of FBI Director James Comey.”

As for Cohen’s current craziness regarding the summit, his Twitter feed tells the tale.
