David Waldman, Greg Dworkin and thou make a beautiful combination to get through a Thursday like this:

Donald J. Trump, who no one likes, is a traitor, and the worst president ever, was impeached again yesterday. He doesn’t know why. Hope Hicks isn’t there to explain it to him. Donald is sure that it is somebody’s fault however, probably Rudy’s. Trump is certain that if he went to the Capitol yesterday he would have negotiated himself a much better deal —  but now look at what all the losers did to his brand! He won’t get a outhouse named after him after this. Disney is moving his animatronics over to “It’s a Small World” now. Even Hydroxychloroquine pushers don’t want to be associated with him. Trump is so bummed that he might never give out a pardon again.

Anti-democracy Republicans in Virginia and Georgia are being stripped of their committee memberships. Capitol police now have to make people go “through” the metal detector.

All of this because of just a few little coup attempts. “Where is our unity?” wonders the Gop. As usual, once they are personally threatened, Republicans turn around. Unfortunately, some of them have already been personally threatened to keep their backs turned, even if it means a few of their co-workers lives. Republicans were giving Capitol tours to insurrectionists because that seemed safer than telling them no. Instead, it made it increasingly more dangerous for everyone, for the foreseeable future. Rioters believe they were sent by Trump. Many believe Trump was sent by God. There was a huge police presence in DC on January 6th, but the problem was, they weren’t with the good guys

Trump knew what was about to go down, but the question is, how many of the rioters knew? @LiteraryMouse has already amassed a huge amount of data on who knew how much, and how much that mattered. For instance, think of the celebrity sightings! Meanwhile, the guy photographed with his feet up on a desk had his potential sentence upped by a decade — Thanks William Barr!

Also, thanks to those in the media that are finally figuring out how to tell it like it is. Kind of late, but better than the alternative. We’re just beginning to find out the corruption at the 2017 inaugural!
