Jar Jar Lamar

The frustrating enraging story of the day concerns the Senate's decision not to call any witnesses for Trump's impeachment trial, effectively stating that, while Trump did something wrong, it doesn't merit further investigation. The shitshow is best summed up by a recent string of tweets by Lamar Alexander:

Alexander's cowardice is now a trending topic on social media. Personally, I am getting flashbacks to the not-so-great 'Star Wars' prequel movies, with Lamar playing the role of Jar Jar Binks granting Palpatine emergency powers:

Of course, with the signal that Trump is above the law, I'll let Natalie Portman have the final word on the Trump cultists approval of their God-Emperor's asspotheosis:

As if the shitshow weren't bad enough, Adam Schiff just had to rile up the fringiest of the MAGA fringe by referencing a storm, which is enough to get the conspiracy theorists all wee-weed up. I know I've predicted that 2020 will be a stupid year, but I didn't even know the half of it.

Sorry; I got a date wrong on part of my original post, so I deleted it. We don't need that. :-} Your post certainly speaks to today.
