“He’s like America’s crazy ex, and he’s just decided that if he can’t have us, no one can…”

Not quite.

He’s not the ex for most of us, because most of us never CHOSE him. Rather, he’s more like America’s asshole step-father: he was thrust upon us by some members of the household, and he never really cared about us anyway.


In the same way not removing Trump from office during the impeachment hearings means he will just run again, not prosecuting him for Jan 6th means he will gladly utilize the power of mob violence again.


Not to mention that we still pay for his insurance and expenses for life…yeahhhhhh.


I guess its obvious but when Trump floats pardons for 1/6 traitors, what he’s really broadcasting is:
There will be no penalty for future acts of treason and insurrection.


Fourteenth Amendment, Section 3:​

“No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any state, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof.”

Prosecute him.


And now he’s punishing us for not loving him enough.


True. He doesn’t just bring a shovel, he hires someone with a backhoe.

He is America’s crazy US.
He is our dark side, crawling from the basement.
He’s been there from the beginning, metaphorically speaking.

Maybe so, but he isn’t the only one with a say in the matter.
And he is massively outnumbered.

True, that. His minions are in the process of subverting democracy.


Maybe a Stern Talking To will change their minds. Perhaps even some Finger Wagging is called for.
