  1. What’s the difference between Donald Trump and a rutabaga?

    …one’s a disgusting orange Russian plant and the other is a rutabaga

  2. Rep, Pelosi is a master politician. Thank you!

  3. Moscow Mitch is a disgrace, another Putz !!!

  4. Nothing says “taking this well” like an all-caps tweet from the Stable Genius, who is sticking to the hilariously dumb “perfect call” defense.

    From McConnell’s perspective, his side’s witnesses don’t have to be relevant to the point of law in question. They just have to be ‘relevant’ to what the ignorant Trump base *wants to believe.* Calling in Hunter Biden makes zero sense, legally or logically. But, it certainly does play well with the ethically-corrupt GOP/Fox talking points, and those misdirections and lies are the half the foundation of Trumpism. The other half being just blatant racism and xenophobia, of course….

    Pelosi outsmarted the feeble minded gop

  7. The light at the end of the tunnel is looming ahead. 😄

  8. Smells like Kentucky fried trump ..I mean chicken ..

  9. Let’s be very clear, the fact that Trump and republicans in the Senate are afraid of introducing witnesses and evidence in the trial is because they know that Trump is guilty of bribery and obstruction of justice. And the majority of Americans know it too. Not only is Trump on trial, but republicans in the Senate are also on trial. And the American people will be watching.

    • Parnas just said on Maddow that Graham was in on it also. They are a mob. Trump works like a mob boss. Get everyone’s hands dirty to ensure no one rats. Thankfully, sometimes, there’s the one who gets caught. They sing like a canary.

  11. Trump: “I swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help me Putin….if you’re listening.” 😄

      🤣 👏

    • Man, I don’t know what it’s going to take to get rid of this guy. He truly is the Teflon Don. That or we have some lousy attorneys at work on Capital Hill. There are at least a dozen reasons they could have impeached on and they fell on probably the least convincing one.

    • Mr. Badfinger, it’s like Trump has made a deal with the devil to become president and stay president

  12. There could be a tape of Trump screaming at all his flunkies” get dirt on Biden now, and it wouldn’t matter to M Mitch and the gop senators.

    Witnesses is something no one in the gop wants to hear. Because it’s the truth that scares them. Imagine Bolton and nunes having to tell under oath the truth

    • I don’t imagine being under oath will make much difference, if they all stick to their lies they will probably be able to lie their way out of trouble.
      Unless their is irrefutable proof introduced at some point, the crooked republicans will give trump a pass.

    Moscow Mitch needs to go.

  15. Donald Trump brought chaos and deceit to the White House. And then try to serve up lies to the American public on the silver platter. Betraying his oath of office and our constitution All For the Love of Money.

  16. Guilty as charged, American Traitor Moscow Mitch selling us all out. Our democracy is under attack by the GOP Government of Putin

    ‪It’s clear that donny put a hit on Marie Yovanovitch! If she had stayed in Ukraine, she would be dead today!‬

  18. Can’t we just call the Republican Party what it actually is? It’s a crime syndicate.

  19. Republicans Senators or Cultists? We will soon find out.

  20. Can they request from the Chief Justice to force the recusal of all senators who said publicly they will not be impartial?
