President Trump is apparently too successful and popular to impeach, although it should be remembered that the law is blind – all are treated equally. Some recent cases may cause him concern.
The lawyers for then-71-year-old financier Bernie Madoff suggested he was too old to go to jail. He is still there and has a substantial amount of time to go.
It was suggested that Paris Hilton was too beautiful to go to jail; and although she had to do some time, it was 40 days of home arrest which may have been more comfortable that the usual option. This was partially due to a medical condition and her good behavior.

Perhaps a more relevant case may be that of 16-year-old Ethan Coach who was initially spared prison after a fatal drink-driving incident, as it was argued he was too spoilt to serve a jail sentence. This was, however, changed when he broke bail conditions, and he did spend two years in jail – although that seems little for four deaths.
As the leader of the country, the president must see that all the laws are upheld fairly.
