After Biden is inaugurated and the Senate impeachment trial is over there will really be no reason for Trump to be on TV all the time and since he won’t be yelling at us on Twitter every day let’s hope this “Cancel Culture” works as well as Republicans keep telling us it will
I’m trying to imagine what Trump’s post-Presidency life will look like and he’ll probably show up on OANN & Newsmax and he might even continue with the rallies but without his Twitter/Facebook megaphone I can’t imagine they’re going to be as popular as they were before
I’m fully aware of how much oxygen Schmuck a L’Orange is draining from the upcoming Presidential Inaugural and with all due deference to President-Elect Biden it’s not like we’ve ever had an openly seditionist lame duck kicking and screaming and refusing to leave before
I still maintain that we’re not going to see the true End of Trump until the greater GOP decides to move on without him, which will likely be signified by their selection of a non-Trump-affiliated standard-bearer as their Presidential nominee
Implicit in my previous conjecture is that Trump will never, ever, ever stop complaining about how the election was stolen from him & that he deserves to be President again, but his success will be determined entirely by how seriously he is taken by the remaining Republican base

HA HA HA HA HA oh, nice try Mister Tuberville
Yes, let’s delay the inauguration until the pandemic, which the current President has done fuck-all to fix, is “behind us”
We already know this idiot believes there should be zero obstacles to Trump staying President forever; there’s no need to pretend “public safety” is of particularly grave concern to him, especially him light of what his allies are willing to do to keep Dear Leader in power

Welcome to life in 2021, where the lion’s share of what passes for political discourse consists of Explaining Extremely Obvious Things to People Who Refuse to Listen
- Joe Biden won the 2020 election. Any “fraud” detected was minimal, & did not affect the outcome in any state.

- Several states were not allowed to count mail-in ballots until the Election Day ballots were complete. They were not mysteriously “found” in the middle of the night.
- There was no valid evidence for fraud; just hearsay and viral rumors on the Internet.

- Despite 60 attempts to prove fraudulent behavior, none of Trump’s evidence was considered legitimate in a court of law.

You can review my Twitter feed from the week that preceded January 6 and find numerous iterations of me asking “WTF do Trump and his acolytes think he will accomplish?”

Trump overplayed his hand. His attempted coup has backfired in every possible way, & he is far worse off now.
Trump is now banned from Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. The House is rushing to impeach him a second time - with less than two weeks to go! - and a Senate removal is no longer the fairy tale it seemed a year ago.

Trump is justifiably being treated as an enemy of the state.
America’s eyes are now fully open. The footage we saw Wednesday indicates the kind of people we are dealing with. Trump has never been more disgraced, & those who ride with him are indisputably toxic.

Did I mention that Democrats now have the House, the Senate, & the Presidency?

Well, despite everything that happened yesterday, Biden is America’s next President.

The coup failed. But goddamn, the number of Republicans who supported it was absolutely indefensible.

I had some thoughts yesterday, for those who missed it...
Trump thought that threatening Congress with his goons would wrest the Presidency away from Biden. It did not.

Americans are rightfully concerned with what they will do next in the service of Trump’s monomania.

I think there’s a word for people who deliberately inspire terror.
Make no mistake: nothing that happened yesterday changed Trump’s mind about anything. By several accounts, he appeared to enjoy watching the chaos on TV.

A few more Republicans seem to understand what we’re dealing with. Which is good.

The question remains: how will we respond?

All right, Democrats: if you’re serious about “looking forward, not back” then at the very least you should use these past four years as a learning experience and strengthen some things we took for granted.

How about:

- Require all future Presidential candidates to disclose 10 years of tax returns

- Draw a line in the sand about when it’s acceptable to nominate SCOTUS replacements & stick to it

- Better yet, get rid of lifetime SCOTUS appointments & make it a 10-year limit

- Have a serious discussion about abolishing the Electoral College. (It’s just affirmative action for red states now; if they want a seat at the table, they should have to fairly compete in the marketplace of ideas.)

- Strengthen punishment for overt sedition

Does she think that if the MSM were nicer to Trump voters, they’d start paying more attention to the media when they report the objectively terrible things Trump is doing?
Which sect of Trump voters does Meghan McCain believe are worthy of respect?

The aggressively deceitful ones who know that Trump is lying, or the deeply gullible ones who are brainwashed into believing that Trump and only Trump is telling the truth?
