16 Hours, 59 Minutes to go…We no longer need to count the days when President Biden is inaugurated, we’re instead down to counting the hours & minutes. We can finally say goodbye to the bullying gaslighter-in-chief who has been such an unmitigated disaster for our country. Our curse is about to be lifted which actually provides hope we can start heading in the right direction & begin solving our pressing problems. And once Trump leaves office his personal problems only increase, including the likelihood more connections in the know can speak freely about the spectacular evils of this man. He also has significant debt issues to deal with as creditors come a-calling, as banks have turned off his loan faucet & his brand (Trump’s primary source of income) has now been badly tarnished. The Senate has a shot of convicting him in the impeachment trial & could also vote to bar him from ever holding public office again. Plus prosecutors can be expected to soon hand down indictments for the crimes they’ve found Trump committed, featuring a wide litany of financial crimes plus a civil rape case, along with possible legal jeopardy over the recent inciting of a violent insurrection: https://www.msn.com/en-us/
So here’s hoping & praying President Biden really can get the nation back on track in the midst of monumental challenges, greatly complicated by the fact much of the GOP base routinely dismisses undeniable & irrefutable facts. There will still be a sizable Trump cult out there believing those continuing lies, coming from his GOP political cronies, extremist echo-media & millions in his merry band of Trumpeters. Their deceptive & duped mindsets will remain extremely dangerous to America even with their master out of power. All those falsehoods, distortions & conspiracies can only be overcome by telling the truth to the American people along with demonstrably constructive governing by the Dems taking charge. Trumpism must be forever repudiated & banished to the dustbin of history, which among the many dire threats we saw included the past few months with the election & coup attempt, as we’ll likely never fully know how close we really came to falling into dictatorial fascism: https://www.msn.com/en-us/
Trump should go down as the worst president in American history, period!: https://www.msn.com/en-us/
Turning to the tragedy of his son’s death, Raskin delivered a moving tribute, discussing Tommy’s lifelong passion for “human rights for every person” before saying he accepted Pelosi’s request to lead the impeachment trial because of him.
“When we went to count the Electoral College votes and it came under that ludicrous attack, I felt my son with me and I was most concerned with our youngest daughter and my son-in-law, who is married to our other daughter, who were with me that day who got caught in a room off the House floor,” he told anchor Jake Tapper. “In between them and me was a rampage, an armed mob that could have killed them easily and was banging on the doors where they were hiding under a desk with my chief of staff.”
“These events are personal to me, Jake,” he continued. “There was an attack on our country. There was an attack on our people.”
After Raskin said the president “did nothing” about the riot for hours, instead just continuing to “watch it on TV and enjoy their insurrection tailgate party,” Tapper expressed his condolences to the congressman.
“You just lost your son and now you’re in Congress worrying about your daughter and your other daughter’s husband because of these terrorists who had attacked the Congress,” the State of the Union host said. “That trauma on top of trauma just seems so debilitating to me.”
“I’m not going to lose my son at the end of 2020 and lose my republic in 2021,” Raskin sternly replied. “It’s not going to happen. The vast majority of American people—Democrats, Republicans, and independents—reject armed insurrection and violence as a new way of doing business in America.”
“We’re not going to do that,” he added. “This was the most terrible crime ever by a president of the United States against our country, and I want everybody to feel the gravity and the seriousness of those events.”
Me too. I’ve pushed back hard on the insanity from friends & family, creating plenty of tension. It’s heartbreaking & scary. But if we don’t tell them the truth at this critical juncture, who will?
CNN, NBC & Others just Called the Race for the NEW President!!!
