And from that post:
Some old near-forgotten lore, though still funny, now after time, we realize the situation is worse than we figured back then, and real, real ugly. The crazy right-on words of the flesh, despite the crazy.
Centerpiece of our current history occurs about a minute, 15 seconds into the clip — just before the T-Rump takes the oath, he and and Obama hug, whisper:
Trump: “Now pretend I like you, but I hate you inside.”
Obama: “You’re a creep.”
As I write this, the Senate has adjourned for the day after Republicans and Democrats presented closing arguments in the T-Rump’s impeachment trial — one with the facts and reality, the other acting the stooge.
Rep. Hakeem Jeffries presented a notable, old-timey plea (CNN):
“If the Senate chooses to acquit under these circumstances, then America is in the wilderness. If the Senate chooses to normalize lawlessness, if the Senate chooses to normalize corruption, if the Senate chooses to normalize presidential abuse of power, then America is in the wilderness.
If the Senate chooses to acquit President Trump without issuing a single subpoena, without interviewing a single witness, without reviewing a single new document, then America is truly in the wilderness. But all is not lost.
Even at this late hour. The Senate can still do the right thing.
America is watching. The world is watching. The eyes of history are watching. The Senate can still do the right thing.”
Truly, a “Do the Right Thing” moment.
