Do you think, based upon what you’ve seen, read, or heard about the evidence presented so far by the House Select Committee, that it has, in fact, ended Donald Trump’s political career?
I have no idea what will happen. At this point in the proceedings, you’d think we would all have a good idea where these hearings are going and what results we can expect.
Instead, it’s just one more thing I don’t get. Like how come Trump got elected in the first place. I don’t understand how come there are so many ignorant idiots in this country. I also don’t know how the orange idiot survived two impeachments without so much as a close call on conviction. I don’t understand how come he and his contingent of treasonous sycophants aren’t in jail. Where they belong.
On some level, it’s entirely possible I don’t want to understand more. Our politics has become a corrupt mess. Lies, greed,and bigotry. Past a certain point — a point we passed years ago — there’s nothing left for me to do except worry or obsess. Gaining additional knowledge is unlikely to make me feel better.
I certainly hope the hearings will off-load that miserable bag of trash, but I doubt it. Short of the man dying of heart disease — how many Mickey D burgers can one man eat without repercussions? — I’m not sure he will ever leave. Even if he died, it doesn’t mean the damage he did will disappear.
Given his age and stage, mortality will take Trump away sooner or later, but his influence won’t vanish. The loonies who believe more conspiracy theories than I can count aren’t going to suddenly take up reading science and discovering (gasp) reality. Does anyone want to bet that if he died, a lot of his followers will be awaiting his resurrection? Some kind of bizarre GOP version of Christianity with Trump as Christ. Yikes!
It’s going to be at least a generation before his shadow vanishes — if it ever does.
