Agony & Ecstasy
It seems the Trump impeachment has been going on forever. The never ending developments, obstruction, ignored reality, AAAAGGGGHHHHH!!!! That’s me screaming. And we unfortunately know, that no matter the evidence the Senate will ignore it. Some days I can’t stand reading all this garbage and have to stop scanning the internet. Apparently, if you’re Republican no matter Trump’s guilt, the offense isn’t bad enough. Voter tampering isn’t serious enough. AAAAGGGGHHHH!!!! That’s me screaming, again.
Phone Call Perfection
The absurdity of the Trump defense that his July 25th, 2019 call to Ukrainian President Zelensky was “perfect,” makes me want to kick a stump but I don’t want to break my foot. Trump’s plot to withhold needed financial aid from a desperate Ukraine had two goals. First, he wanted the Ukrainians to announce an investigation into his political rival, Joe Biden and his son Hunter. Secondly, Trump wanted to implicate the Ukraine in the 2016 election tampering instead of the Russians. Both goals are outrageous and corrupt. Nothing serious enough to have an impeach hearing over. WTF? Sorry, I can’t think of anything more serious than election fraud. Back in a minute, I have to hurl.
Overturn Valid Election
Seriously! Back to AAAAGGGGHHHH!!!! I’m on the back porch, screaming. The Republican idea that the entire Trump impeachment process is to overturn an election is a fairy tale. Why on earth would anyone with a brain think Pence is a prize? We all want to get rid of Trump so we can have someone even worse? I hear this stupid argument day in and day out. I guess I’m wondering why America would want to overturn an election. The Dems could have just ignored all the crimes and waited until the election if that was the goal. Let’s get it straight, Trump was impeached because he’s a cheat, a criminal, and a dumb ass clown.
Loyalty to Trump Not U.S.
What the F! One of the criticisms I have of the House Manager’s prosecution is that no one mentioned that the witnesses against Trump are Republicans. Most of them Trump appointees. Trump is so ‘effn dumb. All of the audio, video and eyewitness testimony has been filed by Republicans. Trump is the kind of boss that would make me spend all my time devoted to malicious compliance. All while looking for a better job. The idea that even being a lifelong Republican isn’t important because your loyalty now has to be to Trump. Trump only. If you haven’t kissed the royal ring, and the royal ass you aren’t Trumpian enough. Seriously, we are looking at cult behavior.
Whatever the outcome of the Trump impeachment hearing, this has been an extremely damaging scenario for the president. Day after day new information is leaked to the media pointing to Trump’s guilt and I presume this will continue ad nauseam until he is out of office. I call it the scandal a day presidency. So there is definitely some good with the bad in this whole drama. Sometimes I just think if we just sit back and wait Trump will accidentally confess to something even Republicans believe is impeachable. “Hey, Donald! I found some more rope, you want some?”
The Trump impeachment has sent the president’s Twitter account into overdrive. He has been spouting idiocies on his Twitter feed for years but the recent ones are a joy to behold. I enjoy watching him embarrass himself day after day with poor grammar, lousy spelling and idiotic ramblings, When I’m tired and can’t sleep, I read Trump tweets instead of counting sheep. Then when I do fall asleep it’s with a smile on my face. What a moron! By the way, he has tweeted Schiff, Pelosi and Bolton are all “going to pay for their part in the Trump impeachment”. His Twitter feed is full of threats, hate and lies.
His recent admission that “we have all the material. They don’t have the material,” is scary. He is talking here, about evidence. This is an admission of obstruction of Congress. Trump has made obstructing the impeachment process into an art form. It really scares me that the Republicans are willing to aid the president in suppressing the voices of fact witnesses. Especially since they have to throw so many loyal Republicans (Vindman, Sondland, Bolton, Mattis, Kelly) under the bus to protect the President.
The Trump impeachment is comedy gold for the late night comedians As you can see, I’m trying to keep a good sense of humor until the next election. Trump isn’t going to be removed from office until then. Hopefully, this is Trump and his Republican followers last hurrah. We will have to wait for the last laugh until Trump is out of office and the Congress has been cleansed of the Trump cultists, but I believe it is coming. I know most Americans can’t keep focused on anything for more than a week, but I am hopeful that, on this issue, the issue of Trump’s character will be the major topic in the 2020 election. There is a price for ignoring the 63% of Americans who wanted witnesses called and documents presented. The majority of Americans wanted to see an actual trial. Vote and make sure we, the People, have the last laugh.
The Trump Impeachment Trial
Now we come to the impeachment trial phase and Republican obfuscation. Republicans say they have no need for documents or witnesses. They heard the House testimony and it’s not enough. They’re going to acquit Trump. With that in mind, new evidence, such as the phone records by Lev and Igor and Bolton’s book revelations are being blatantly ignored. So annoying. Join me in my prayer that Mitch McConnell, Rand Paul and Lindsey Graham develop anal warts.
Republicans are playing with impeachment fire. The arrogance of the Republican lawmakers is alarming. They are literally willing to ignore, and in some cases bury the evidence, but the public is not. Since 51-56% of Americans believe Trump should be impeached and removed from office the Republicans risk losing their Senate majority in the upcoming election. All in all this could be a very good year for Democrats and November may give them the House, Senate and the Presidency. If we don’t F it up!
