This man argued that one Donald J. Trump shall hence forth be known as Donald "King Master Emperor Lord Chancellor" Trump and can do anything he wants as long as it is in "America's best interest". The GOP can't decide if it wants witness or not but hey, what's the end of democracy as we know it.

As long as we can stick it to those libs. Isn't that right Gollum?



In other news, the dem primary rages on. Warren was up, and now she is down. Pete was up, and now he is down. Bernie is now the new hotness, but will he burn bright or burn out?



Tulsi still sucks.

Reminders:
1) This thread isn't a venting ground for ResetEra threads you don't like, that's what the complaining channel on Discord (that no one who isn't already a member can see) is for.
1.5) Don't complain about OT Threads. We all want a better world, let's focus on the issues and not on being tone police.
2) This thread isn't a Twitter feed or live TV comment feed, provide context (as in tweet text or a video link/some attempt at transcription, respectively) for what you post.
3) Ignore these reminders at your own peril.

I was here.

Also, the trial is a sham, but I think even the average American can kinda see that.

GOP wants quick end amid belief they‘ll defeat witness vote. Top Rs believe final vote on acquittal could happen as early as tomorrow night. "The leader would have the right of first recognition, and if he wanted to move to closing arguments I suspect we'd do that,” Thune said https://twitter.com/mkraju/status/1222734554689163265

McConnell expected to move quickly to acquit Trump if Friday’s vote for witnesses and docs is defeated - as GOP leaders believe they are closing in on the votes necessary to block any witnesses. Dems will force votes but acquittal would happen soon after https://www.cnn.com/2020/01/29/politics/witness-vote-mitch-mcconnell-plans/index.html

Bitch is perfectly okay with one of Trump's lawyers saying a sitting President can do whatever they want to win an election.

Fuck Republicans.

That would suck.
I know he'll be acquired, but not calling witnesses is the ultimate act of a cover up (to say nothing of ignoring subpoenas of people and documents).
Also, I really, REALLY don't want to see the orange clown gloating during the SOTU. It would be like salt in a wound.
Pelosi controls the timing of the SOTU, why not just delay it a month if the witness vote fails. That way Trump can't gloat while the news is hot off the presses. In a month or so it will be old news and inevitably more damning stuff will come out just making him and all the GOP look guilty of a coverup. Then let them do the SOTU where Trump bragging about being aquitted just seems like old news to the country.

I wish I could say I was surprised that Bloomberg has been so successful at purchasing his way into the top ~4.
I haven't watched network TV in years, but I've been taking care of my mom at my house recently and she watches it.
Bloomberg has ads non-stop slamming Trump. I haven't seen a single ad from another Dem. I'm in DC and it's like no one else is running.

Fuck this country, we need a REALLY BIG reset

So, are we going to see any of these moderate asshole Dems like Manchin, Sinema, and Jones vote yes to acquit so Trump can gloat about his "bipartisan acquittal" at the SOTU and on the campaign trail for months?

Omg this ad is GOOD. Loffler and Collins Are dead.
A runoff between Warnock and Collins? Good luck.

Hopefully it'll be more of a "Operation Icing on the Cake" type of deal than a "Oh Christ if we don't win this we're literally all gonna die"

Let the Democrats take one last victory lap before assuming the presidency (and Senate majority).

Here's Campbell Soup stupid statement of the day.

Can't wait for black and white attack ads in a few months.

[construction worker leaning on a shovel] "Work around here has been harder and harder to come by. The coronavirus virus promised to change that, but things don't look any better to me."

[lady placing a crate full of fish in to a pickup truck] "It's harder and harder to provide for our families, but the coronavirus doesn't seem to care at all."

[voiceover] "The coronavirus took millions of dollars from the CDC in January 2020 alone."

[guy in a baseball hat] "The coronavirus doesn't care about folks like us."

Imagine if he ends up getting re-elected after all this. At that point I just don't know what else we can do but push for secession.
