Which comes first?

Which comes first?
The end of impeachment hearings or the State of the Union Address?

The timing could really set the tone....

I doubt it’ll affect the tone all that much. Either way, Trump will simply whinge about how badly he’s been persecuted, will foray into whataboutism territory, and laud himself as the greatest American president since Benjamin Washington.

That all said, I'll be surprised if the senate trial isn't finished before the address.

I dunno...

The ( D )s would no doubt like it hanging about as long as possible....

I wonder what procedural moves they could make to prolong it?

Pretty much none.  At any point, the Senate can vote to dismiss the articles of impeachment by a simple majority. It’s very unlikely, but I wouldn’t put it past them if this drags on.

Considering that the whole poinlt was to belittle Trump as much as possible - (there was virtually no chance of him being removed from office) - it seems all they can do is a flaming bag of dogshit on his doorstep....

Yeah, that wasn't the point.

It seems that way from where I sit...

But hey - I'm not firmly against a little pooch poop porch flambe - when the recipient is a monumental asshat - as is the case here.....

RE: Which comes first?
-and still it remains a fact that this isn't the point. A pleasant benefit of pursuing the foundational principles of our republic, sure..but not the point.

I do appreciate that you're looking for an acceptable way out of trumpism, though - I've always maintained that this is all that stands in the way of getting rid of the fucker. People who amplify trumpist messaging are still people. They see that something is amiss, and want to right that ship, but..preferably, in a way that conforms to all of their stated opinions and positions these least few years. Good luck with that.
I am the Infantry. I am my country’s strength in war, her deterrent in peace. I am the heart of the fight… wherever, whenever. I carry America’s faith and honor against her enemies. I am the Queen of Battle. I am what my country expects me to be, the best trained Soldier in the world. In the race for victory, I am swift, determined, and courageous, armed with a fierce will to win. Never will I fail my country’s trust. Always I fight on…through the foe, to the objective, to triumph overall. If necessary, I will fight to my death. By my steadfast courage, I have won more than 200 years of freedom. I yield not to weakness, to hunger, to cowardice, to fatigue, to superior odds, For I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight. I forsake not, my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty. I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever. I AM THE INFANTRY! FOLLOW ME!
