How is it that Trump's law team sounds so incompetent?
Probably is incompetent. Not that it matters, the Republicans will acquit regardless of the arguments or evidence.

Yeah, so much for jurors. A two-party system is not what the Founding Fathers envisioned. I repeat my repetitive call for election reform.

Actually, the lawyer's talk sounds like it was written by the Donald himself.
All of the half-sane lawyers abandoned him. :lol:

And Trump was acquitted again.

It's good to be above the law.

^ I never expected any different. I suppose they had to pursue 2nd impeachment, just on principle. Now it's time to criminally prosecute.

^Agreed, but the problem now is trying to seat an impartial jury.

He and his slime bag children are going to be facing the music the next few years. They got too greedy with their grift, and it will be righteously hilarious when his constantly audited tax returns come to light.

The key to remember is to constantly refer to him as FORMER PRESIDENT TRUMP. It grates on him more than anything.

FORMER PRESIDENT THE DONALD. :lol:

The Saturday vote kind of took me by surprise. I was expecting Tuesday or Wednesday. I did like Mitch-baby's comments, though. I'm looking forward to some criminal charges, but I'm especially looking forward to the civil suits from the survivors of all the people who died-- and it would be really cool if they made it a class-action suit.

It is horrible as Limbaugh, as with anyone, has family who now mourns his passing. But on the other hand he did do more than almost anyone to send the tone of American politics down the toilet.

^Not on his scale of popularity or influence. There are some real nuts on the left, but for the most part the Democratic party as a whole doesn't show any fealty to them.

^^ I try to avoid any stories about Trump. He needs to disappear -- and yet I realize that he isn't going anywhere. Not yet at least.

It is disheartening how many in the GOP are still pledging fealty to him. :no:

It will be interesting to see how this will play out in the next election. I also can't wait to see the first documentaries start to show up on the History Channel and so forth.
