    You sure are all over the board, even if only facetiously. Do you need to be reminded that the post you are responding to was in response to your claim that Republicans were praising Trump for being not as bad as HRC?

    I bet most of you loved it when Trump was blamed for the problems in Puerto Rico. It turns out he was right for calling out the corrupt politicians...

    Trump’s legal team doesn’t appear to be defending him at all. I don’t know if they really believe that the president can do whatever he wants or if they are playing to Fox News knowing that the base will be too stupid to understand that they’re merely being fed sound bites on Hannity?

    You know it’s bad when you’re hoping that a lot of people get sick so focus comes off your boy’s impeachment...

    I truly don't understand the GOP strategy here.

    1. If this really is just a sham "Witch Hunt" and the president is innocent, why not permit witnesses and documents so that the President can prove his innocence? How much worse for Democrats could it get? After all this, the president proves his innocence. Wow! Devastation, Right?
    2. If Republicans know that Trump is guilty AF, why not take the opportunity right now, join together, and run the sword completely through Trump and rid themselves of this man? Sure, a few Senators might lose their seats. But the majority might not be in play and they'll finally rid themselves of their scourge, right? It worked with Nixon. They took a hit but quickly recovered.
    3. If they feel like Trump is a useful idiot to appoint judges and kill regulation, why not dump him now and roll with Pence?
    4. If they feel like having a real trial is conceding to Democrats, what do they think November 2020 will be like? Most of the country supports having a real trial over a sham trial. The nonsense being pulled today almost guarantees the loss of the White House and Senate. Do you really want President Warren, Sanders, or Biden appointing judges for the foreseeable future? You've already given us 10+ governor's mansions and hundreds of seats. I guess you want a beatdown that will last for the next decade?
    5. Finally, have they thought this through? When hasn't it not gotten worse? Have they already forgotten what happened with Mueller? Like the very next day after Mueller testified, Trump committed arguably his biggest crime yet, the phone call and holding of Ukrainian aid. Sure, maybe this whole impeachment thing blows over in a few weeks and people begin to forget... Lev Parnas isn't going away anytime soon. Rudy won't ever shut up. John Bolton's book is still going to be published and will most likely reveal some explosive details about this scandal. And as we've seen throughout history, Trump isn't going to stop criming.
    So it's only ever going to get worse. I really don't understand the GOP strategy here. And the precedent will be set for a future Democrat to ignore traditional norms. I have a warning to all Republicans on this board, I feel pretty damn strongly about universal health care and gun control. Just as strongly as you do about guns, taxes, and abortion. Maybe I'll excuse President Warren working with China to eviscerate your 2024 candidate because "Mah health care and gun control" is more important than constitutional norms? In the not too distant future, a Democrat may buy off porn stars, use their properties for profit, sell off cabinet positions to enrich friends, collude with foreign governments, and obstruct justice. What will you say to Democrats when they excuse these actions because getting their "judges, health care, and gun control" were more important?

    So please, remember the precedent you're setting.

    I for one would say that in that case you should turn your back on the Dems to preserve the rule of law, like I have turned my back on Trump and his Republican supporters. But that's just me. I've no idea what the Republicans who have continued to support Trump would be able to say to you without hypocrisy.

    Is it not possible that some Trumpians compare Trump to HRC and some Trumpians compare Trump to God?

    Not sure why you believe these two facts should be mutually exclusive. The tyranny of "OR" smile

    Oh I get it. You have integrity. I hope i have the same integrity...

    and I know enough about history to know how quickly democracies are lost. But “mah judges, health care, and gun control” are tempting. And republicans won’t have a leg to stand on to complain if liberals throw our country away for agenda wins. It would be sad. But at this point, I really couldn’t blame them. Look at how much more seriously Adam Schiff has prepared than any of his republican clown counterparts.

    I personally am getting a little tired of waiting for republicans to “snap” out of giggling about destroying our democracy.

    This is exactly what any innocent person would say. “I have all of the in incriminating evidence and I’m not going to share it because it would show how guilty I am.”

    HOWIE CARR: Trump’s Only Crime Is Being Trump.

    Forget the two “counts” against President Trump in the Senate trial that begins today, the reality is he is charged with only one crime.

    He is accused of being Donald J. Trump.

    For that high crime, the Democrats say, he must be removed from office.

    The Democrat “House managers” are going to get 24 hours over the next two days to lay out their opening arguments, but how are they going to fill that time, considering that they’re not even accusing him of committing any crimes?

    Certainly no actual felonies — you know, Bill Clinton stuff like obstruction of justice, perjury and suborning perjury.

    They just accuse him of being … Donald J. Trump.

    For that they need 24 hours?

    How are Schiff, Nadler, et al., going to fill those hours? Are they going to talk about how he puts ketchup on steaks? And then orders two scoops of ice cream for dessert?

    Considering all the airtime they have to fill, maybe the Democrats can include a Greatest Hits compilation of all the other fake-news fantasies they’ve entertained over the last three years for getting rid of Trump:

    Jill Stein’s recount (before Hillary was accused of being a Russian asset), faithless electors, emoluments clause, the 25th Amendment, Hillary’s fake dossier, the Russian hoax, firing crooked James Comey, senile Bob Mueller and his 19 angry Democrats, Michael Cohen, Michael Avenatti (pre-indictments), Stormy Daniels, Brett Kavanaugh frame-up, tax returns, loans guaranteed by Russian oligarchs … .

    And now, the Ukraine hoax.

    What are the high crimes and misdemeanors committed by Trump? Record high numbers of Americans working, the stock market at record highs. Favorable trade deals, ISIS destroyed, millions off welfare and food stamps.

    They never feared Trump failing. They feared his success, and that’s unforgivable.

    This is just one of many ways Donald Trump shows he has absolutely zero respect for the American people:
