Chris Riddell – Swamp Thing – The Sequel – cartoon

As Mitch McConnell makes his nonsensical statement that Trump is guilty as hell while then acquitting him, the Republican Party is still in thrall to fascism. Instead of standing up for Republican values, honesty and honorability they have gone for cowardice and self-interest. We’ll see where that leads.

Meanwhile, the pave the way for the return of the fascist tyrant.

      1. What you do “focus” upon … ya continuously make general negative statements – comparable to a drip drip drip of a leaking sink – and bring NO supporting evidence which supports your extreme fanatic statements.

      2. Simon & Garfunkel, nice song, which does not apply here in my contempt for your utter ignorance. You want to discuss political issues … then you need to bring specifics not just dumb ass platitudes.

      3. Bunk same MO, you never learn. What words of President Trump’s speech some 2 miles distant from the DC riots “incited insurrection”?

      4. All of it – and the rhetoric of the weeks leading up to it. It goes back even before the election when he was laying the groundwork.
        This is what Mitch McConnell, the Republican leader said:

        Following Saturday’s vote acquitting former President Donald Trump, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., excoriated Trump for his actions on the day of the attack on the U.S. Capitol, calling them a “disgraceful dereliction of duty.”

        But he said ultimately, he did not vote to convict the former president because of constitutional concerns.

        “There’s no question, none, that President Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of the day,” McConnell said shortly after the 57-43 Senate vote that ended in the former president’s acquittal.

        “The people who stormed this building believed they were acting on the wishes and instructions of their president,” he said, “and having that belief was a foreseeable consequence of the growing crescendo of false statements, conspiracy theories and reckless hyperbole which the defeated president kept shouting into the largest megaphone on planet Earth.”

        McConnell rebuked Trump for his actions after the insurrection as well.

        “He did not do his job. He didn’t take steps so federal law could be faithfully executed and order restored,” he continued.
        I think he knows better than you Moshe. He said he was guilty!!

      6. Idiot. To impeach or not to impeach. Your “silly technicality”, the stupidity of attempting to impeach a person not sitting as President. Idiot moron.

      7. Lol – you do make me laugh. Under your idiocy any President can do what he wants in his last weeks. He is above the law. All people should be subject to the law. If he was organising a coup he needs being found guilty.

      8. Are you referring to Trump being a lame duck?? Because I think you’re right. His attempted coup has alienated all right-minded conservatives. They’ll never vote for him. He’s ruined the REpublican party. He’s a lame duck for sure.

      9. Idiot. A President does not leave Office until the new President gets sworn into Office. The period between the election of the new President and the swearing into Office of this new President on Jan 20 of the new year, goes by the term “lame duck”. Civics 101 for morons.

      10. Lame duck applies to a lot of things Moshe. Trump was always a lame duck. Thankfully Biden is busily undoing the damage he created.

      11. Foreign idiot who loves to comment on US politics. The term lame duck – originally coined to describe an out going President. Silly fool, get an education.

      12. All people in power, not just politics, who are moving on can be described as lame ducks. It’s original use has broadened with time. It is when someone no longer has influence.

      13. Lol Moshe – you make me laugh. McConnell just wants to be re-elected. He’s a lying bastard trying to straddle the fence. Hopefully he’ll fall on his groin.

I'd like to hear from you...
