“My view is what the President should do is finish the last ten days of his Presidency. The President touched the hot stove on Wednesday and is unlikely to touch it again.”

Senator Roy Blunt (R-MO) CBS, "Face the Nation," Sunday, January 10 2021


"I believe that the president has learned from this case. The president has been impeached. That's a pretty big lesson."

Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) CBS Evening News with Norah O'Donnell, Tuesday, February 4 2020


the most horrific aspect of both these comments is how recklessly they minimize the crimes to which they refer; how they make 45 sound like a naughty little school boy instead of a corrupting influence destroying millions of lives in the course of getting whatever it is that he thinks he wants, which is as much everything as it is absolutely nothing.

nothing will satisfy 45.

listen to me: nothing will ever satisfy 45.

part and parcel to that, 45 did not "touch the stove."

45 wasn't even in the same building as the fucking stove.

45 incited hundreds of thousands of devoted followers to throw themselves on the stove on his behalf.

now, many of their lives will go down in flames because of it. they will lose friends, family, community, jobs, livelihoods, health, freedom, trust, relevance, and maybe even their lives for 45. it was, of course, not anywhere near enough for this hungry abuser.

nothing ever is.
