It now appears clear that the armed mob, who were organized and cheered on by the president and his GOP backers in the House and Senate, came to the nation's capital prepared to commit acts of violence against members of Congress and Vice President Mike Pence.

A failed coup that goes unpunished becomes a training exercise.

Sinclair Lewis's quote: "When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross" seems prophetic now in relation to Trump and Pence.

The point of impeachment too is so he can’t hold office again.

"But I want to point out that no AMERICANS were CHEERING for the *TERRORISTS BACK THEN!* "

I feel that. Real anger.

"Impeachment will divide us." Unlike the division you done for 4 years so you can have long lasting power with easy to win elections, huh, McCarthy?

"It's not a Coincidence, it's a Consequence." Honestly, this is the wisest, quickest way to sum up everything. Did anyone else feel any resonance, or a sense of impact when he said that? Chills.😮

The "blue lives matter" mob literally beating a cop with an American Flag is gonna put so many Onion writers out of a job.

Reasons to impeach Trump at this late date: 1) Trump will be ineligible to run again, 2) Trump will lose all post-Presidential benefits, such as Secret Service protection, $1, 000, 000/year travel allowance, $200, 000/year pension, access to classified briefings, office space. A better reason: without justice, there can be no peace.

Wow.. it never dawned on me that we'd see a sequel to "Don and the Giant Impeach." I feel like we shouldn't ever see a sequel for an impeachment. Hollywood will reboot anything...



(Its remarkable how many people dont understand the joke here. We shouldn't have a president so bad that he needs to be impeached twice, its ridiculous. And "hollywood will reboot anything" is very clearly a jab at the movie industry. Hollywood obviously has nothing to do with this)

“ Hang Mike Pence” and Pence has no reaction. Unbelievable.

I finally figured out Trump's master plan to get Mexico to pay for a border wall. Make things so bad here that Mexico has to build a wall to keep fleeing Americans out.

The intelligence agencies have been warning of the growing dangers of violent extreme right wing groups for some time now. No one should have been surprised.I certainly wasn’t.

Hey, DJTJ, next time you start complaining about a private media company kicking Daddy Trump off their platform:
