Momentum continues to build in Congress to get rid of Trump as quickly as possible.
The damage to America’s democracy and soul by Trump is immeasurable, but does it outweigh the pandemic, economy and other issues?
As more and more Republicans say they’ve “had it” with Trump, his lies and his antics, the pressure is on to get him out of the White House and Washington now.
Bye, bye, you un-American guy. “I do think the president committed impeachable offenses,” says Pennsylvania GOP Sen. Pat Toomey. He joins a growing list of Republicans who say Trump must go, even before his term ends in 10 days, and never be allowed to seek office again.
Trump’s megalomania would never let himself accept defeat while his hate and anger brought him to want to burn down the place that now rejects him.
With Trump holed in his office, many worry that he is plotting more violence and mayhem in his final days in office.
Trump preferred Twitter to even talking directly with people. He would stay up late at night filing tweet after tweet, many of them lies.
He still has support from extremists, some rank-and-file, and hard-core right-wingers but he is no longer the dominating force for the GOP.
Three days before the day that brought an invasion of the building that contained America’s government, destruction, and death, the Pentagon and other agencies offered help to guard the building, but the Capitol Police said “no.”
In stilted video uploaded to his reactivated Twitter account, Trump did not accept any role in inciting the violence perpetrated by his supporters when they forced the way into the Capitol, inflicting damage as police escorted members of Congress to secure locations. The attack left one Capitol Police Officer dead and an Air Force veteran who posted O’Anon conspiracy theories shot and killed when she tried to force her way into the building.
