I hope the fear when windows started breaking and they had to flee to the bomb shelter, will make some of those Trumptard congress people realize what they have created. Fouling your breeches is usually enough to make sane people reconsider things.

Good to hear there is a lot of Amendment 25 and immediate Impeachment talk out there. You know it's only going to get worse, and he's got 14 days left.

Yes, President Donald (Coward, Traitor, Misogynist, Demagogue, Criminal, Serial Predator, Adulterer, Draft Dodger, Narcissist, Liar, Thief, Grifter, Incompetent, Bully, Braggart, Loser, failed Con-man, Fraudster, Seditionist, Insurrectionist, Wanted by Interpol, etc.) Trump* could be impeached in two or three days and maybe this time enough republican cowards will have the courage to convict, thus ending President Donald (...) Trump's* attempted second term in 2024.

On the bright side, he could make the claim of being the first President to hold two impeachments in his first term...


* Impeached

A Senate trial could certainly be expedited, now that we know it's unnecessary to hear any evidence.

Interesting article.

"Explainer-How could Trump be removed from office before his term ends on Jan. 20?"

https://www.yahoo.com/news/explainer-trump-removed-office-term-034153966.html


It's high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first instead of their political party. For way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

NONE of this makes any sense. The Washington DC mayor said that she had called out the national guard first thing in the morning! Then they said that they weren't there because nobody asked them to be there. After that there was more baloney. One can only wonder if what happened is that before Trump made his little talk about how he would lead them to the congress he told his supporters not to worry and then told the national guard to stand back and everything will be dandy.

Now there are going to be several investigations - interesting times.

Oh, I saw several of the rioters walking out of the congressional buildings with tables, chairs, papers, etc.

Trump has less than 2 weeks. I have no idea how anybody can keep him in check as there is no time for that. At the very least the congress should pass a law banning Trump from any and all runs for public office. There has to be some way to do that as the man is working, very hard, to destroy the nation.

I continue to wonder. Once he leaves the White House I wonder - will he go directly to Russia to retire?

I can hardly stop laughing long enough to type. Fits of giggles, y'know?

I mean honestly. Sedition. Insurrection. Pelosi has called for his removal. Impeachment articles have been circulated. Cabinet members resigning.

These folks are looking like the biggest fools on the planet.

You can't make sh*it like this up. We knew he'd go out in a blaze of glory, but we never could have imagined anything as truly delightful as the last 24 hours.

Oddly enough, I take no delight in the fact that a plurality of Republicans think the election was rigged and what happened yesterday was just fine and dandy.

One nice side effect is that there is going to be much less resistance to prosecution of Trump after he leaves office. There is also going to be a lot of scrutiny looking at the DC police agencies who let that happen, and much less benefit for the congressional insurrection caucus in future elections.

Less resistance to the prosecution of Trump, probably true. Investigations up the ying yang, probably true again. But by 2022, all of this will have become ancient history. Heck, come 31 January, outside of the investigations most Americans will have completely forgot about all of this outside of political junkies. Some other issue will be the topic of the day, become the hot issue having replaced the D.C. riots. That's just the way things work. Most Americans have a very short memory span.

Everything thing, every happening always seems to be a game changer, but two weeks later, that supposedly game changer is forgotten replaced by something else. Everything reverts to the way it was before the supposedly game changing event even happened.
