He tells people to “Take out” US ambassadors all the time, can’t expect him to remember this one case.

Again another example of Trump being a fucking coward and not personally able to fire anyone, even though all he had to do was pick up the phone and talk to Mikey Petty PompousAss to have her recalled. That’s it, pick up the phone and make a simple call.

It’s things like this, though perhaps not adding much to the overall body of evidence against Trump, that will give the GOP senators cause for concern as the allegations against Trump become more and more a certainty. And the trial is not over yet. And these sorts of revelation will continue to burst forth over time like the repeating apparition of an ill-natured poltergeist.

Who among us has not, at one time, ordered two rotund lackeys to “take out” a US Ambassador?

Something like this would do it. Something like this would turn the country against him.

This fat bastard playing tough - a 2 x 4 and 1 minute please.

Isn’t “Take her out!” mobster lingo for murder?

But here’s all the MAGA crowd will hear and repeat all weekend: “She’s basically walking around telling everybody ‘Wait, he’s gonna get impeached, just wait,” Parnas reportedly added.

So he was nipping in the bud the Democratic conspiracy to remove him from office, etc., etc., ad nauseum.

Still good stuff for those of us who remain in the reality-based community.

Wow. Obligatory statement that I realize that the Senate GOP is basically immune from facts or conscience. But wow.
