Donald Trump insinuated himself into the American psyche five years ago, much like a plantar’s wart. His roots sinking ever deeper into our naked flesh. Tuesday is the day of Trump Impeachment II. Will the Republican senators prove themselves to be craven cowards, holding onto their precious Senate seat, much like J. R. R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth Gollum in and his Precious.
That is the day that the Republican legislators will have to show America who they are.
The trial is, of course, about the ex-president’s attempt to overthrow the US government, a coup. It is also about whom voters chose to represent them in the Senate.
Republican consultant and co-founder of The Lincoln Project Mike Madrid earlier called these events representative of a “dark, dark day in American history,” according to ABC 10:
“This is a dark, dark day in American history. It’s the culmination of what a lot of us have been warning about for the past four years.’
The Lincoln Project turned the lens around from Trump to focus it on the Senate. Its video creators showed the majesty of the nation’s Capitol Building, its history, its patriotism. Then, we see what 45 did to it, at least in part. The ex-president invited these people to come to his rally. There he ginned up hundreds, thousands of Americans, pointed them at the Capitol, and set them loose, their target in mind.
After this president’s impeachment trial, the 100 senators will vote. As The Lincoln Project says, their vote will be forever remembered in history. We are living in historical times.
