    1. “‘I just don’t even know why there aren’t more- why there aren’t uprisings all over the country and maybe there will be.” -Nancy Pelosi, 2020

    1. @YUM Liberal Tears this impeachment theatre will have lower ratings than the diet woke superbowl spectacle that just received its lowest ratings since 1969.

    2. @YUM Liberal Tears poor fragile little cupcake, if you could or would read you would discover that traitor Trump’s campaign staff met with Russian agents at Trump tower to undermine an American election in addition to more than 100 campaign contacts in addition to “individuals 2’s” emails incriminating himself in the scheme to obtain Hilary’s emails.

    1. “Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up,” Waters told a crowd in California over the weekend. “If you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd, and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.” – Maxine Waters, 2018

  1. Very moving and poignant, wise words from Lincoln – Mob Violence… people thinking they were going to die…..don’t forget that Republican Senators, grow a backbone and convict that awful corrupt former President.

  2. The “like and subscribe MSNBC” clip at the end of the video should really be removed for sometimes

  3. you think if they did a silent vote it might go through, since everyone is afraid of trump, although I don’t understand do they really want him to tell them what to?

    1. A silent vote is cowardly. These elected officials felt compelled to run for office because ideally, they believed so strongly about holding office and the importance of that office, that they felt nobody could possibly do a better job then they could. If they felt this strongly, they should now stand tall, very publicly, and very clearly be counted. They are leaders. Their constituents rightfully expect to know where they stand on this upcoming vote. There is no place for cowards on this point. Cowards should strongly consider resigning, and if not, the electorate will make their own assessment on election day if they run for relelection.

    2. @RedondoBeach2 Our so called leaders in Washington who we elected to safeguard our nation and our Constitution are the betrayers and that behind them are a comparatively small group of men whose sole objective is to enslave the whole world of humanity in their Satanic plot of One World Government.

  4. And after this, 44 GOP Senators – Senators who made a solemn oath to uphold their constitutional duty – voted “no” knowing _full well_ that the trial is absolutely and without question not only constitutional, but is their _required duty_ to hold. That is the character of the GOP Senators who defiled our democracy by entering the Senate chamber today.

    1. @Sparks Fire and Baling Wire You’re wrong. It says the Chief Justice presides when impeaching “The” President. Not a former President, and not a judge, and not a Senator. “The” President, and ONLY when it is “the” President. And the purpose is so there’s no conflict of interest when the VP would otherwise preside as they could make a decision they would benefit from. It’s academic. That was actually covered in the opening statements. You should watch them, and you should probably read up on the Constitution you purport to know so well.

    2. @poligney1 what’s your point? I’m looking forward to the Southern District of NY to bring their charges against the Dumpster. not sure why you’re calling me names, fruitcake.

    3. @Carl Sagan Nowhere does the constitution allow for the democrats double standards. Trump WAS President when the articles of impeachment were filed. Therefore, the chief Justice should preside over the trial. If he is no longer President, then you are impeaching a private citizen, which is unconstitutional. You can’t have it both ways.

    4. @Kenosis you’re so very hurtful cupcake, crying woefully. No matter, the chief justice presides over a presidential impeachment, since the treasonous pathologically lying ignorant draft dodging tax evading sexually assaultive bungling alt-right bigot is no longer in office that’s unnecessary.

  5. Well said. If one is of sound mind with true love and understanding of what we give treasure and blood to preserve for our children every word of this speech rings true.

    1. @Amber Adkins You can leave now. I don’t know what your damage is, but you’re not welcome. That’s the kindest thing I can say to someone like you

    2. @Patty Kelly no damage. Spreading the message. These guys are acting. Biden’s former wife, dr Berman’s son, the numerous “deaths” recently due to covid, do yourself a favor and educate yourself.

    3. @Amber Adkins I’m quite comfortable with my education thank you. And Im quite tired of trying to be nice. F off
