it’s not a lynching, and anyway, Trump is already a “strange fruit”.

Yeah some day Donnie. Last time they had the majority they didn’t even wait to see who won.

Trump should start planning his escape. Maybe he should build an underground railroad.

Well, normally I´m against lynching. But in this case…

ETA: Note to SS: I meant ¨lynching¨ in a high-tech, Clarence Thomas metaphorical kinda way :wink:

For someone who should be so confident that nothing can happen to him, he sure seems obsessed and nervous.

Rump isn’t wrong about what assholes a future Republican House could be. They could impeach a Democratic President for any reason, no reason or the stupidest possible reason. THEY ALREADY HAVE!!! SO dont f**÷÷*&$ ELECT ANOTHER REPUBLICAN HOUSE!!!

I guess that I shouldn’t be amazed by Trump’s lack of originality. The best analysis after the Clinton Impeachment circus was that " it was a legal coup !" And Trump stole that to say his Impeachment inquiry is a coup. During the Senate grilling of Thomas for the Supreme Court he called it a High-tech lynching. And now Trump has stolen that as well. How about calling the Ukraine debacle a third-rate corruption.

Good Dog! I feel dumber anymore after reading one of President Thicky’s tweets.

Beyond being an affront to the legacy of Ida Wells and those who were victims of lynching, tRump consistently reflects a deep lack of understanding about anything governmental. Damn! His stupid burns my brain.

“The comparison was met with swift, bipartisan condemnation.”

Can we stop calling support from neverttumpers “bipartisan”? Wake me up when rethugs in office grow a spine.

I know it’s HARD Donnie but do try READING the Constitution. Along with the ‘phony emoluments clause’ is some pretty interesting stuff about IMPEACHMENT, what it means, who can do it and WHY they do it.

The man is wearing down. He is becoming more irrational daily. Emotionally he is the same age as my twin grandchildren – 2. He simply lacks any understanding of the motives of the people around him and the wider world in which he currently lives, so all he can do is stomp his feet and throw a fit.
