Are you strawberry floating kidding me?!

They got what they wanted- the testimony that Trump knew Pence was in danger has been added to the record. The longer the trial goes on, the less time they have to enact Biden's agenda.


No offence to you personally here (seriously) but get to absolute strawberry float with that excuse. Pure bollocks.

They had the GOP in a complete meltdown, their lawyer was laughted out of the chamber, they had a chance to show, irrefutabley, how Trump was responsible for Jan 6 and they whiffed.

Unbe-fucking-lievable.

Oh I'd prefer witnesses too but they have shown Trump is responsible for January 6th. Witnesses or no witnesses they're not getting a conviction. The longer the trial goes on for the longer until they can send their voters those direct stimulus cheques.

I guess it depends on how much you believe the bolded. I've not really been following it but what I've seen reported is that acquittal is a foregone conclusion.

Yeah, I specifically didn't say change the verdict as I agree that's unchangeable. But the damage it could've done to the GOP's PR, and Trump inparticular...massive

The Republicans should be ashamed of themselves but they really don't give a gooseberry fool.

In a bizarre speech after the verdict McConnell admitted Trump had incited insurrection and should be criminally investigated but claimed impeachment was unconstitutional because he was no longer in office.

Carlson much preferred it when "love" was someone suckkng an old man's mushroom-shaped cock for a green card, privilege and wealth, and barely being able to conceal your disgust at your life choices in public. All that unbearable hardsgio for capitalist gains. The American Dream, people.

Funny thing is, he's actually correct when he says their love is as real as climate change.

Odd simile to use, but I agree with Tucker. Although, to be pedantic, I don't believe the love between the Bidens has been documented by scientific studies.
