Joe Lockhart writes that despite calls to invoke the 25th Amendment and a rush towards a second impeachment, there are other things that Americans can do to hold President Donald Trump for his outrageous and immoral behavior.

Time and time again for the last four years the American public has watched President Donald Trump avoid accountability for his outrageous and immoral behavior.

There are two potential paths for the politicians in Washington to punish the President: Invoking the 25th Amendment at the direction of the vice president and the cabinet, or impeaching Trump for a second time and holding a trial in the Senate.

It might require a broader deal -- if he were willing, Vice President Mike Pence could convince both Trump and the cabinet to remove the President in return for a full pardon from President Pence.

The House can pass articles of impeachment quickly, but it is unlikely the Senate could pull off a trial before the President's term ended.

Here's a few ideas to make sure former President Trump feels the pain he has inflicted on our country:

Let them know you will no longer buy their books if they sign Trump to a book deal.

Make sure the Trump Organization is not afforded any the tax breaks for building in your community.

Trump must be held accountable for crimes against the state.

Trump screwed up the most important job in the world -- president of the United States.

Let's make sure he doesn't benefit now from the best job in the world -- former president of the United States.
