David Waldman welcomes Tuesday guest Joan McCarter to help count off the week, before the day, before the inauguration

The Big Lie and the Big Liar head to Texas today, for yet another last stand. Nothing will shut Donald Trump up, but soon, one way or the other, he won’t be saying it as President. Of course, plenty of dangerous crazy morons will continue to believe him, even as their boats sit at the bottoms of lakes across the country.  Some dangerous crazy morons are well-placed politically, like boat-sinker Kristina Malimon, of the the Young Republicans of Oregon, and Turning Point USA. Freedom Caucus chair Andy Biggs can tell you, and will soon be telling the FBI, that he and three House Republicans organized the January 6 rally. Derrick Evans, West Virginia lawmaker and anti-abortion radical, shouted Derrick Evans is in the Capitol!” on a live stream, which was actually the truth. On the other hand, Charlie Kirk is trying to hide the truth of how many busses of insurgents he shipped in, in an attempt to lie about the attempted murders that insurgents committedArmed statehouse protests were rehearsals for the Capitol insurgency. Those rehearsals continue. State and local police, veterans and not-so-veterans are rehearsing with them.

(A not big, very small lie: You know the guy that died from tasering himself right in the Tip O’Neill area of the Capitol? Well, his wife will tell you his testicles are just fine, thank you. Apocryphal or not, he’ll always be ball-tased in our hearts.)

By the way, you don’t need “flex cuffs” to slowly torture and murder people… it probably helps, though.  For example, at least 9 Gop lawmakers refused to wear masks during the Capitol lockdown, and they managed to bag at least two Democrats, including Representative Pramila Jayapal. Dark money  behind Republican state attorneys general organized the protests before the insurrection. Meanwhile, money out in the sunlight can’t afford to hang out with insurrectionist Republicans.

The 25th Amendment, impeachment, and expulsion of Trump Republicans are all under consideration in House of Representatives. You bet the House has the votes to impeach Trump again, but if you know the process, and you do if you are a listener, you know that today’s the day the House will vote to tell Mike Pence to activate section 4 of the 25th Amendment, and tomorrow comes the impeachment vote.
