More proof of my theory that Trump is the Antichrist coming to take down America. He thought it would be easy but didn't count on the Republicans being such as kissing syncophants. He just has to keep trying and trying.

Admitting to a crime while you're on trial accused for having committed just that same crime is hilariously stupid.

Let's take a stab at the spin:
1) Trump is "smart" to hide evidence, in the same way he's smart to cheat on his taxes
2) They all do it
3) Maybe he meant the "material" on Biden
4) So? Better than Hildabeast!
5) Rolling Stone? That's fake news for hippies

This is the admission against interest that should allow the Dems to subpoena more docs from the WH in the Senate trial, the question becomes, are they smart enough to finally do this correctly?

The fact that all you have as an insult is to call somebody a woman tells me all I need to know about you.

Tell me how many of these are right. Be honest now.

You're probably 5'9" or so with a potbelly that spills over your belt.

You have a standard goatee, brand name splashed on everything clothes (mostly under armor, Nike or some aspirational designer brand like Armani).

You drive a pickup you don't use, complain about the price of the gas you're wasting and turn it in far too early because you're more concerned with the look of having a new car than the cost ineffectiveness. (At least give me half credit if you drive a base model "muscle car" like a mustang or charger)

Your house is a shoddy, quickly built development house with hollow pressed fiberboard doors and plastic or poplar baseboards and trim.

You watch the standard "man" shows like Sports Center, you waste your weekends watching football and all the useless analysis before and after and say "we" when your favorite team does well.

How am I doing so far?

What we have here is really quite simple. The Democrats have laid out a case that the Repubicans are unable to counter. When your "client" is guilty, you use every tactic imaginable to get him off on whatever technicality you can. In this case, they're going for the "You didn't conduct a trial prior to releasing your indictment, so we're not going to use your indictment during our trial" approach. Their "client" is incredibly stupid, to boot.

I'm really surprised that Roberts hasn't just shut down the kangaroo court already and pulled the boys into a room to tell them it's over for their guy and to cut bait. That kompromat must be really juicy. When this is all over, and the kompromat is released anyway, all the righties around here will be selling some other snake oil and denying they ever liked Hair Furor, LOL.

If Trump is able to avoid consequences for his actions the Constitution will still be there. As a quaint historical document. We will look back with nostalgia on how we could have had a more perfect union and we will chuckle at our naivety that a corrupt president could be held in check by the other 2 branches of our government.

FYI.. in spite of your lies Obama never tried Abuse his office to undermine our elections by soliciting foreign interference in our elections.

If Barack Obama had done half of what Humpy has done Congress would have impeached him ten times over and you would have gladly strung him up in a tree or drug him behind your truck while rolling coal.

No matter what the senate decides now Donald J Trump has been impeached. He is impeached now and forever.

Obama? Not so much. Not impeached. Now or Ever.
