Paramythia

Paramythia (pa-ra-mee’-thi-a): An expression of consolation and encouragement.

Don’t worry about being impeached. Just relax and enjoy the press coverage. After all, even if they find you guilty, it’s not like they’re going to cut off your head. Anyway, your constant lying about being not guilty is playing really well with the ignorant morons who will defend you to the death wearing Chinese-made work pants, shirts, boots, socks, and underwear. And, you know, Pence will pardon you at the same time the Senate is passing sentence. No matter what happens, you have our support. Russia has always been 100% on your side. Just keep your mouth shut and do what your good friend Putin says. Everything will work itself out.
