  1. The cognitive dissonance runs rampant here. I ran out of popcorn. Keep the crazy coming, I promise to be right back.

    1. @gwreeves1987 Reeves CISA, DOJ, the Supreme Court, 60 lower courts, multiple ballot audits, recounts in every battleground state, an extremely detailed debunk of every fraud allegation by the top Georgia election official, virtually all polls showing Trump behind Biden, an approval rating that never hit 50% in four years, a phone call in which Trump clearly attempted to commit fraud himself…and the MAGA crowd still thinks he was cheated??

    2. @Kraang ‎‎‎‎‎‎​ Because he threw-in the word, “peaceful” during his incitement, Trump isn’t culpable?

      Just because Giuliani said “let’s have trial by combat” on Trump’s behalf, while Trump stood yards away cheering him on, it’s not his fault?

      If a gangster says “whack” instead of “kill”, should they get off? A coke dealer can just say “blow” instead of “cocaine” and they can’t get in trouble?

      We know full well what Trump followers would say if Biden or Obama did that.

    3. @J Groovy

      Because Kamala wanted to release BLM rioters from jail, it doesn’t mean she encouraged the BLM riots by setting up a fund to post bail for those arrested during the 8+ months of riots with billions in damages and 40+ Americans killed.

    4. The stupidity in this country is rampant. People will believe just about anything. Much of it rests on our school’s shoulders because you can graduate from H.S. with a 3rd grade ability to read & write, & cypher. In that time we have spent $240,000 per student to gain this glorious ability. We are being taken, in the name of “equality”. Just dumb it down until they can cross the final hurdle. It’s not fair to the students or the taxpayers.

    5. @Steven Pettinga

      Be careful, the brainwashed masses might track you down and charge you criminally for speaking such unadulterated truth.

    1. @Maria Cullati Yes, a lot of them did get arrested and charged. The violent ones that were caught. So, too, will the violent ones acting on January 6. Their leader, however, ABANDONED THEM and left them to stand trial.

    2. @Sue Zbell 2 years and like 40 million dollars spent. No evidence. If you were smart you would understand that both China and Russia have been interfering with our politics and election process on both sides, they don’t care that Trump or anyone wins, they only care that we tear ourselves apart. The political establishment in this country is so absurdly corrupt that they will do things like this and the previous impeachment to send a message to anyone who isn’t part of the club who might make the mistake of thinking they want to run one year. They will use CNN and all of the media and internet to literally have every dumb person in the country believing things about you that can genuinely be disproved with just a few seconds of searching. And if you happened to try and win, they will accuse you of treasonous crimes and have you tried using very obviously false videos that are heavily edited to suit their agenda and cite opinion posts from leftist activists from social media as evidence against you in order to prevent you from running again. You should be able to see this stuff, but the bubble is so well engineered that you’ll never poke your head out. Literally almost everything you people have come to believe over the past five years is just simply false false false and they can do it because they know you’re all idiots. They designed you that way.

  2. impeachment trials are a sham… Needs to be done by an impartial panel of jurors, not the senate who has obvious biases. Makes no sense.

    1. @Everythingsleeps HOW MANY LIVE’S WERE LOST BECAUSE OF BURN LOOT MURDERS PEACEFUL DEADLY RIOTS IN THE THE MIDDLE OF A WORLDWIDE PANDEMIC

    2. Impartial jurors are usually useful because the jurors don’t know defendant. Of course with the president, someone like that would be impossible to come by.

    3. @Xavier Fletcher WHAT KIND OF A PUNK ASSED THREAT IS THAT, BE CAREFUL MAKING THREAT’S TO PEOPLE YOU DON’T KNOW.
      SOMEDAY YOU MIGHT MEET THEM IN PERSON WHEN NOBODY ELSE IS AROUND LATE AT NIGHT IN A DARK ALLEY FOR EXAMPLE, OR THEY MIGHT BE LOOKING DIRECTLY AT YOU THIS VERY MOMENT WAITING FOR THE RIGHT TIME TO TELL YOU THAT YOUR LONG LOST DADDY IS FINALLY HOME.

    4. The dramatic readings and then injecting race politics by that lady wearing a poinsettia pink bow was when I decided this whole thing as a sham. Race politics should never be played with facts. The Democrats high powered lawyers could not even defeat a personal injury lawyer who knows the law, lol

  3. They want to do that remember people you have the power vote them out they want to burn every thing down vote them out.

    1. Absolutely George. How can anyone respect these rats after they did not support a justifiable conviction. Wow, Mike Pence, Mitt Romney, and many others could have been killed….. This is beyond comprehension….

    2. And who is that sir? George, regulations, taxes and benefits to employees starting out have killed half the jobs created in Indy in the last ten years. As a city, we have invested huge amounts of tax $ attracting tourists, hotel guests, conventions; many things. The government’s dictates are not helping. Many of these people have become unemployed are because of Covid restriction. While this sounds fine & good; they have put 100,000 to 200,000 formerly employed people out of work and many of the business they worked for have gone under. All by government edict. I should have the right to take the risk of going out for a dinner or some entertainment afterwards; and keep my favorite establishments going and prosperous. Most of the people taken by the Covid are elderly or already already very sick & compromised. Maybe, it’s nature way? I take a risk by many things in my life, by choice. Don’t tell what I can or can not fuggin do. Thank you

    1. They were going to call Pelosi but since TRUMP owns her & she would get caught in a lie they wimped out!!!! A little late now snowflake TRUMP creamed you.

  4. They don’t know what impeachment means…can’t fault them for being a little slow…most of Congress can’t even read…never mind understanding law or the constitution…

    1. HAHA that is right. If you watch the big tech trial, the HORs and Senate’s comments on the matter are kindergarten-level questions…

      Jim Jordan: “So all these ‘megabytes’ you talk about aren’t going to kidnap conservatives?”

      General gop to big tech: “Are you meaning to tell me there’s long-term, natural economic incentives to ensure users trust you- and your cumulative IQ is at least 10^36,000,000x of all US police so you protect their information with your life because you understand that people can protest your service just like they have every other issue?? Noooo, you’re big tech and out to get conservatives!!!! You’re the devil!!! I have no concept of separation of church and state because I’m a bafoon”

    1. @Burning snow lol. I thought it was obvious that it was my opinion. How do they start a fight they know for certain they won’t win. Where’s the strategy?

    2. @Elestrago S I suppose that question could be answered like this. If you were the democrats, what would have you done in that situation?

    3. @Burning snow Not impeach. They can’t say they want unity and impeach Trump. Everyone except other Democrats see it for what it is……an empty statement they don’t mean. Let Trump run again. It’s doubtful he’ll win, and if he wins, then it’s the will of the people. Not letting him run again for fear that he’ll win is what authoritarian regimes do. Let the Conservatives form 2 parties……they’ll split their vote and will never win again.

  5. The losers are those who don’t know what their Constituion is and it’s so sad to say that most elected officials don’t know what the laws is. They should have to pass a test on their knowledge of what is The USA CONSTITUTION is all about. from an asian point of view

    1. Can anyone else charged for treason refused to attend the court proceedings? THIS IS OUTRIGHT LAWLESSNESS & COWARDLY DISPLAY OF BIASE LAWS! SO, TRUMP IS ABOVE THE LAWS & INDIRECTLY HE HAD CAUSED THE DEATH OF 5 LIVES DURING THE INSURRECTION….

    2. @henghean lim LMFAO what 5 lives? OMG HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA you people lose because of the bizarre statements you make which are seated in fantasy. TRUMP beat you, this statements are false. Stop whining you cant beat AMERICANS on their soil.

  6. Well looks like there will be a part 2 insurrection in the near future brought to you by republicans .Some country America use to be !!!

  7. Guess who the loser of this trial is? The american people. Our elected officials continue to waste our money for political and personal gain.

    1. @Patty Smet They really need to look into Devin Nunez involvement in the Ukraine fiasco from the first impeachment. So many lives would be different (for the better) had they done the right thing the first time….

  8. The U.S. Congress, is just so important though? It represents every single tax paying American individual and their interests!

  9. Message to GOP 43: SHAME SHAME SHAME VOTERS WILL REMEMBER YOUR NAMES. What a disgraceful display of cowardice. UNBELIEVABLE.

  10. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
