Being expelled from congress will hopefully be the least of their worries. Some should spend decades in federal prison, working on their Trump tattoos and license plate skills.

Literal Trump insanity; unmoored from reality.

Why is it that they can only dissuade him from doing the things that would really have been fun?

As lawmakers cast their impeachment votes on Wednesday, an official said that the President instead busied himself by awarding medals to performers such as Toby Keith and Kay Coles James, the president of the Heritage Foundation.

The folks over at wiki will be busy for sometime adding asterisks to everything that Trump touched during his miserable one term in office. Toby and Kay I hope that you appreciate that the award you received now means nothing.

He thought his presence would intimidate the members of Congress. Period.

His relevance to a serious procedure in The House at best would have been amusing. After pleading his case there probably would have been 20 R votes in favor of Impeachment.
