2nd acquittal coming … all the rest is just laughable, embarrassing Kabuki theater.— Catturd ™ (@catturd2) February 9, 2021
The political/media system is once again consumed with debating the personal conduct of Trump. As with any chemical dependency, withdrawal is really hard and sometimes you go backward— Michael Tracey (@mtracey) February 9, 2021
"They could have killed all of us," David Cicilline melodramatically declares. Really looking forward to the hard evidence that these alleged mass executions were imminent, because none has been presented yet despite 200+ ongoing criminal prosecutions— Michael Tracey (@mtracey) February 9, 2021
Suddenly the primary purpose of Congress is to implore that the public sympathize with their sob stories— Michael Tracey (@mtracey) February 9, 2021
Still very strange that none of the participants in what's being called an "armed insurrection" ever brandished firearms— Michael Tracey (@mtracey) February 9, 2021
Only a few hours in and both the impeachment managers + defense have managed to break down in tears, Trump's lawyer Doug Schoen having done so while reciting poetry (?)— Michael Tracey (@mtracey) February 9, 2021
I don’t have anything to add to Catturd’s take.
This is more performance art politics and a complete waste of time. Donald Trump’s acquittal is a foregone conclusion. The man isn’t even the president anymore. Move on.
“WASHINGTON — The second impeachment trial of Donald Trump offers a clarifying moment for the GOP.
As the trial began Tuesday, Republican senators remained deeply — though not evenly — divided over whether to convict the party’s most powerful figure and prohibit the former president from seeking office again. Six Republicans joined all 50 Democrats on the first day in voting to affirm the Senate’s right to try a former president.
Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., the lead House impeachment manager, showed them video of the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol and recalled in emotional terms and vivid detail his effort to keep himself and his family members safe during it.
“This cannot be the future,” Raskin said, his voice cracking.
With Democrats united in their judgment of Trump, it will be up to Republicans to determine whether the Senate punishes him for his role in the riot. Collectively, their individual decisions will bring into relief not just the future of the Republican Party for the next two years ahead of the 2022 midterm election, but also perhaps far beyond that.
Not only will they decide whether Trump remains their party’s standard-bearer until the next presidential primary — as a possible candidate for the office he just lost — but also whether the GOP establishment wants to continue to be defined by the type of populism on which he built his political empire and then weaponized with an aim on the Capitol. …”
I brought up William Jennings Bryan today for a reason.
Bryan was the Democratic nominee for president in 1896, 1900 and 1908. He remained the kingmaker in the Democratic Party for decades as Trump will be in the future. Most of the journos and “extremism” hall monitors who read this website aren’t smart and educated enough to know things like this.
