House Speaker Nancy Pelosi likened President Trump's lingo to that used by mobsters during her closing House impeachment floor speech, quoting the new mafia flick 'The Irishman.'

He is.

Mario Puzo, the author of The Godfather, gave Francis Ford Coppola some advice before he directed the movie adaptation to his famous book. He said: "I remember Mario Puzo saying never, never know them, never meet them, never be a friend of theirs because they're very charming. And I said, well, tell him I can't possibly do it. I'm busy, in the middle of something. And the fellow went out and told him and he just went away. You know, I always thought of these figures of the crime family sort of like the old myth of vampires, which a vampire can only come into your life if you invite him to step over your threshold." "Well, you know, unfortunately, they are Italians and Americans, but they were not human beings that acted beyond being like animals, in my opinion."

Unfortunately, we let one into our lives. Worse, we gave him power over us and asked him to take care of us and our unique and precious country.

"Crazy Pelosi needs to retire. Her dementia is obvious."

How dare she assist in bringing impeachment proceedings when it is common knowledge that every syllable of the charges are absolutely true, it isn't even in question. Trump readily admitted it. He did make the transfer of hundreds of millions in military aid for Ukraine contingent upon Zelensky "doing him a favor" by investigating his most likely opponent in the 2020 elections.

I don't think Pelosi needs to retire, I think Nulli needs to, hell, probably already has.

I read somewhere that they had trouble reading the articles of impeachment because of the wine stains.

#3 More projection from the Trumptards. If they didn't have that they'd have nothing.

You KNOW you're "winning" when you have to resort to "slaughter the source".

I find it hilarious that people who support an obese orange grease-stain who slurs, sniffs, constantly mispronounces the most basic words and appears to be deep in the throws of a mental health crisis would suggest that Speaker Pelosi should retire because she's mentally incapable.

She runs circles around Dotard, Moscow Mitch, and the moron Kevin McCarthy (an absolute imbecile who claims he's met kings and queens and traveled to Hungria among other fantastical places) and the rest of the HYPOCRITES in the GOP. By withholding the articles of impeachment for a month, Speaker Pelosi ensured that Dotard won't be able to claim he's been "exonerated" at the State of the Union. There is now significant pressure on Cocaine Mitch to have a real trial. Polling shows that now the vast majority of Americans want to see witnesses and documents, and impeachment and removal has gotten more popular over the past 30 days. Most importantly, since the house voted on impeachment, even MORE evidence of the scope of this criminal enterprise has come to light thanks to news reports and FOIA requests.

In recent days as reality has set in, Agolf Twittler has begged for the Moscow Mitch to simply hold a dismissal vote. We now know that the turtle lacks the votes for that spineless act. So he'd better get ready, because even if CULT45 in the Senate votes for acquittal, Diaper Donnie will have been exposed as the wannabe mob boss that he is and that he abused the power of the Presidency for personal gain. He talks like a mob boss, he acts like a mob boss, he surrounds himself with wannabe mobsters and prior to his political aspirations he surrounded himself with actual NY City mobsters. So long story short YES, Drumpf does paint houses.

Humpy and his deplorables will be sniffing and snorting till The End of Time.
And they will never be able to get that taste out of their mouths.

No matter how many times they cry, "But, but, what about Obama? "

Trump will always be impeached. And Obama will ever be impeached.

Enjoy it deplorables! You built it. You asked for it and you got it. It is what you wanted all along.

Impeachment is forever.

The gift that keeps on giving.

And Obama will NEVER be impeached.
