Where shall we begin? As we write, Americans and the world are watching the 2nd impeachment trial of a Con-man who surreptitiously was installed in the most powerful position in the world. And refused to accept the results of an election he LOST. He is a LOSER…and will always be remembered as a LOSER.
How did we get here? Why did a Con-man get so much protection and complicity from his own party? Why does he continue with such protection? Has the Con taken over the party?
We will find out, today (1/13/21).
