We have heard from reporters in mainstream media tell the public that the GOP Senators are afraid from the physical threats of Trump supporters, which they used as an excuse to acquit Donald Trump. Some Senators are just cowards putting their own self-interests ahead of country. But if one must ask the compulsory question: Are the 43 GOP Senators complicit, afraid, or plain cowards, the answer is all the above. Depending on which of the 43 Senators who acquitted an inciter-in-chief you are talking about.
Some, like Senators Mike Lee, Ted Cruz, and Lindsey Graham, capitulated because they are all complicit and plain cowards. When was the last time you witnessed a jury, in a court room, huddle with the defense attorney to lend a hand to free a criminal? Let me add another descriptor for these three Senators: Corrupt.
I say to all 43 Senators: Bask in that glorious history of yours because soon, no one will ever remember your name.
CHEAP GETS YOU CHEAP
You know the consumer adage “You get what you pay for” to describe that cheap gets you cheap? Well, on a much larger scale, the consumers who elected the 43 GOP Senators who acquitted Trump got what they deserved. Cheap Senators for cheap results. They all acquitted a sociopath con man who tried to steal an election.
It mattered little whether Donald Trump’s attempt at stealing an election and starting an insurrection for that purpose met the minimum bar for impeachment. Those 43 Senators were never interested in the illegal actions of Trump. All they cared about is the fact their party, their ideology, and their identity lost to people they hate with passion. Not only did they lose the majority power in the Senate to two Georgian newly elected Senators, one of whom is black and the other is Jewish, but they also had to endure the humiliation of seeing the White House fall in the hands of an Irishman.
What a gargantuan tragedy! Pure Shakespearean.
I say to all 43 Senators: Bask in that glorious history of yours because soon, no one will ever remember your name. We all know by now that most of you are not really afraid for our country. Most of you are either complicit and/or cowards.
It’s a full circle for Donald Trump. He grew up as a slum landlord and even though he tried to polish his image with the brass and glass of Trump Tower, he is going back to his roots as the lord of hillbillies.
RECOGNIZE YOUR SENATOR
Most Americans fail to understand the full breadth of the politics of their representatives. If they are anti-abortion, they vote for that representative’s position on the subject dearest to their hearts without further delving into other issues and other positions. There is no qualitative analysis to determine whether that Senator’s six other positions might betray their own beliefs. Who has the time?
Often, this results in voters selecting on the basis of familiarity. Picture familiarity, name familiarity, and so on. That’s how Americans end up finding that their representatives no longer represent their interests even though Senators try and gauge, once in a while, the public’s position on some issues..
After witnessing the parade of timeline evidence the Impeachment Managers laid out for the public to see for themselves the culpability of Donald Trump, I am of the belief that millions of Americans are persuaded today that their votes for Donald Trump or the Senators that just acquitted him are taking flight. Let us watch the polls come out in the next few days to see if my theory holds.
My estimation is that Donald Trump and the 43 Senators will be left, after this widely anticipated and watched trial, with less than half their voters as hardcore supporters. It will be an amalgamation of the most racist and sordid souls in America today.
So be it. I can live with 30 million Trump trashy supporters, which will take him nowhere. It’s a full circle for Donald Trump. He grew up as a slum landlord and even though he tried to polish his image with the brass and glass of Trump Tower, he is going back to his roots as the lord of hillbillies.
