With 10 Republicans crossing over and voting to impeach, Trump’s corrupt, controversial presidency heads for a disgraceful end with an impeachment trial that could derail any thought of a return to office or hope to the lost support of a shattered GOP base. The fat baby is singing the blues.
Trump incited the mob that breached the Capitol and hastened the end to his lied-filled, corrupt presidency
With the end coming, Trump lashed out in rage at Vice President Mike Pence for putting the Constitution and the law above the lawless desires of a president who lost it all while holed up in the White House, refusing to even go before the American public and disavow the actions of his followers.
His actions incited the mob that shut down the Capitol, temporarily suspended the business of Congress, and shuttered his chaotic attempt to save an election he lost and any hopes for a legacy.
The Democratic presidential nominee says whoever is elected president on Nov. 3 should nominate the new justice and slams McConnell for ignoring his decision in 2016 to not have a vote on a new nominee in a presidential election year.
In 2016, with 10 months to go when Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia died, McConnell refused to schedule a vote on any nominee by then-president Barack Obama.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who refused to allow president Barack Obama to select a replacement justice after Justice Antonin Scalia’s death 10 months before the election in 2016, says he will move quickly to let Trump pick a new conservative judge just six weeks before the Nov. 3 election, setting off a sure firestorm in the campaign’s final days.
