Senate Trial has started.

RE: Senate Trial has started.
I say to Brian37 - you be you.

I have cheered at some being banned (Greatest I Am), but unhappy that others have left us (such as Eleven). I enjoy seeing Brian37's personality.

Here's the thing with Brian37 - as far as I am concerned - if I truly disliked him I would ignore him completely.  

I wouldn't want him as my neighbor or as a family member but as the kooky guy on the forum, he's usually okay.

If he hated it...he wouldn't be here all the time putting up with us poking him with virtual sticks.

That's pretty much it. If I didn't like 37 on some level, he's have the honour of being the only person on my ignore list.

He's hard to take sometimes, but he's basically a good sort and means well.

Apparently the defence lawyer is rambling like a Trump Twitter post and can't remember some of the things he's trying to defend.

Must have hired him from the bargain bin...

Working as intended. It's his job to ramble and be boring. Neither trump nor the gop wants anyone watching this. They would very much like for the senate to say that nobody gets the opportunity to hear him ramble and be boring. Honestly, the case he's trying to make is straight up distilled trumpism. He's insisting that if the former president is held accountable now, then specific elements of the republican party or the rising qanon caucus will enact political revenge in 2022 and 2024.

Challenge accepted, really going with a threat of round two in defense of round one? It's bold, fucking insane, but bold.

Second nutball lawyer suggests that holding trump accountable is the real insurrection, and that this attempt to hold him accountable will disenfranchise millions of americans. He's vry grrr about it all, and how they're doing unity wrong. Also threatening a second civil war.

They need to save some of the nutballery for the trial part of the trial. This bit is only supposed to be about whether or not it’s constitutional to try a former president (it is), not whether doing so might have repercussions later on (it will, but not the ones the nutballs are expecting).

And it doesn’t seem like a good legal tactic to threaten an insurrection when your client is on trial for inciting one.

Worse, he's now complaining that the former pres hasn't received enough due process. This seems to be an invitation for the senate to try him and provide it. Or maybe the house should impeach him a third time? Or, maybe, a court should try him on criminal charges?

Sure, spin the wheel, love it all.
