“The President of the United States summoned this mob, assembled the mob and lit the flame of this attack. Everything that followed was his doing.”

Trump has spent 74 years happily whistling “My Way” past the wreckage of people and institutions he’s upended. He’s likely to keep whistling past impeachment and his political graveyard, too. My column on Impeachment Day and Trump’s self-immolation.

"The gloves have come off. The language that journalists feel free to use is far more direct, far less mired in cautious respect for the highest office in the land." - @Sulliview ⁩

Waiting for each Republican speaker to acknowledge that the 2020 election wasn't stolen before launching into any other part of their speeches. Tick, tick, tick.....

"Though McCarthy was not in favor of impeachment...here was the top House Republican acknowledging reality: The leader of his party had triggered a deadly raid on Congress. Most of his colleagues who spoke would not do the same." - @DavidCornDC 

Retired Air Force Lt. Col. Larry Rendall Brock Jr. aimed “to take hostages” during the Capitol insurrection.

“Trump is not broke, as some have speculated in recent months, but he could wind up in a very nasty cash squeeze.”

Jacob Chansley is seeking a pardon from Trump - which also puts him in line with other do-gooders such as Bannon, Stone, Giuliani, and on and on.

Trump isn't broke, but he could wind up in a very nasty cash squeeze and even old stalwarts like Deutsche Bank are abandoning him. And his "brand?" It's always been cartoonish. Now it rings of violence, chaos, conspiracy and insurrection.

“Our president will start a war with Iran because he has absolutely no ability to negotiate...So the only way he figures he’s going to get reelected, and as sure as you’re sitting there, is to start a war with Iran.”

USPS delivered about 800 million packages between Thanksgiving and New Year’s last year. It delivered about 2.5 billion pieces of first class mail the week before Christmas. Even if *every one* of roughly 130 million voters mailed their ballots this fall, USPS could handle it.

She doesn’t mention her ratings.

Yikes! According to reality, your father bankrupted six companies, cost tens of thousands of people their jobs, gutted Atlantic City, turned his back on New York, looted his own charity with your help, and has spent decades lying about how much money he has. 🤡

The Trump administration quietly stripped coronavirus aid meant to help disinfect New York’s transit systems, schools and other public facilities.
