Oh, one can dream.

With all the lawsuits about to descend upon his cheeto-orange head, and unable to hire council because no one will represent him because they know he will stiff them on their bill, the judgements keep coming in for $$$Millions per, causing him to file personal bankruptcy in April followed by verbal altercations with judges because he's at the end of his sanity and he lashes out getting contempt of court citations and ends up in the county pokey where he is taken under the care of a jailhouse boyfriend.

Well, he is an ex-president and hasn't been stripped of his annual stipend and personal expense accounts, nor his secret service detail, so the jailhouse boyfriend probably won't happen. Pity.

Trump single handedly sunk both Georgia Republican Senators.
He stuck around shouting and tweeting long enough (Jan 5, 2021) to virtually hand over the Senate to the Democrats.

He went out with a big bang on his adopted party's head.

Democrats and their supporters can take the gift and profit the nation with it, or they can squander the nation's votes (surely voting for hope and change). Democrats need to move on and not use the nation's votes as toilet paper to wipe their excrement with.

Forward we go, right?

Trump the insurrectionist. Trump the seditionist.

Trump, the president who tried to end American Democracy.

That Trump. The one we will put on trial for the highest of crimes against this nation.

Don't worry about the distraction of Biden's agenda. We have enough motivation to do both.

Like Kennedy almost said, "We choose to do all these things not because they are easy but because they are hard." We're Americans. We can do it.

Re: Trump single handedly sunk both Georgia Republican Senators.
I still say that the 81 million pieces of voting paper, cast for Biden, should not be used as if they are pieces of toilet paper to wipe the congressional Democrat's butt holes with.

Sorry.

Move on!

Solve some problems.

Re: Trump single handedly sunk both Georgia Republican Senators.
Those 81 million ballots and a lot more were in that mahogany chest shuttled out of the house as the insurrection came crashing in.

You got a lot of god damn gall talking about Democrat's butt holes when the Trumpettes and the Republicans were the ones defecating on the constitution then wiping their greasy butt holes with a flag.

We all know what was being tried. Such cannot be ignored by a democracy that wants to remain so.

Take your revisionism and shove it.

Just looked at polls over a Senate trial.
One actually.

It has 55% of respondents strongly or somewhat favoring removal from office, 37% opposed, and 7% not sure or without an opinion.

20% of Republicans are at least somewhat supportive, and 50% of independents are at least somewhat supportive.

But the poll was taken Jan 15-17, while Trump was still in office. We will see if these poll numbers hold up, post Jan 20.

NBC also released a new poll showing that Trump has a 43% job approval rating and 55% disapproval. There was less Republican "crossover" in this poll; 87% of Republicans approved of his performance.

That is about 15% more Republicans who approve of his job performance than are at least somewhat opposed to Trump being removed by the Senate.

Just that difference in Republicans alone means that - at most - only 50% of Americans support removal AND disapproval of his job performance. I am sure that a close look at the 2 poll's numbers will , with a critical comparison, show that less than 50% of Americans BOTH support removal from office AND disapprove his job performance.

Democrats:

Beware!

Or be aware.

For real.

Yeah, we know. The Nazis are coming. We see them, we hear them, we read them on our favorite forums.

Fuck the republicans, the Nazis and you.

The rule of law requires we punish violent felons. We will do so no matter your threats and scare tactics.

I don't think I want to comment on a post that invokes the Nazi word.

Do notice that my warnings about Democrats loosing future elections were turned into:
A twisted accusation that invoked a genocidal dictatorship.

Democrats are lucky to have won each of the:

Presidential office

Senate

House

Even with the worst Republican ( politically and electorally speaking, Trump was darn near unelectable, despite his 2016 win) for an opponent, it took Covid 19 to defeat Trump.

The Senate was only won by Democrats due to Trump's antics which were almost openly admitted, by Trump, to damage the 2 Republican Senators .

The House is easily going back to Republicans in 2022, and Trump is the reason Democrats barely held on in 2020.

Democrats are ill prepared for a Marco Rubio type candidate as it is, and the impeachment crap is going to make it even worse.

Yes. We need to expel Cruz and Rubio and Hawley from the Senate immediately.

I agree but I think Florida Senator Rick Scott deserves it even more than Rubio.
