Despite being out of office nearly a month, the T-Rump continues to gnaw at the bowels as he did today, picking up chunks of the news cycle, but still not in a good way.
T-Rump needs to be gone from the scene. Life would easily function in a less-stressful atmosphere without his shitty persona intruding in his nasty fashion across media screens, especially since the acquittal. Today was a bell-ringer.
First, aggravatingly vexatious (yes, ‘vexatious‘ is the most-right word) was a petty, vindictive, whinny-little-bitch statement T-Rump released about MoscowMitch, showing once again he’s at core a low-life asshole.
After bragging about political clout, continuing the Big Lie and disparaging McConnell all over the page, was this:
Mitch is a dour, sullen, and unsmiling political hack, and if Republican Senators are going to
stay with him, they will not win again. He will never do what needs to be done, or what is right
for our Country. Where necessary and appropriate, I will back primary rivals who espouse
Making America Great Again and our policy of America First. We want brilliant, strong,
thoughtful, and compassionate leadership.
MoscowMitch ain’t worth saving, a cold-ass shitheel and a contemptible prick, but T-Rump is an way-overall monster:
What. “An earlier draft mocked McConnell for having multiple chins, the person said. But Trump was convinced by advisers to take it out.” https://t.co/1qaQMksG0X

Not only did MoscowMitch blister T-Rump’s ass just after the Senate vote to acquit — saying T-Rump was “morally responsible” for the Jan. 6 attack, and was “a disgraceful, disgraceful dereliction of duty” — so yesterday, in a Wall Street Journal op/ed he bit the T-Rump again in a not-buying-it attempt to absolve himself:
There is no question former President Trump bears moral responsibility. His supporters stormed the Capitol because of the unhinged falsehoods he shouted into the world’s largest megaphone. His behavior during and after the chaos was also unconscionable, from attacking Vice President Mike Pence during the riot to praising the criminals after it ended.
I was as outraged as any member of Congress. But senators take our own oaths. Our job wasn’t to find some way, any way, to inflict a punishment. The Senate’s first and foundational duty was to protect the Constitution.
And from there it’s all blah, blah, sanctimonious bullshit on the unconstitutionality of impeaching somebody out of office. The whole piece a sham.
Supposedly, however, it did piss off the T-Rump, and thus, the statement today. And a first draft was vintage T-Rump:
Trump's initial draft of his McConnell statement was nastier, per two people close to him, and it was delivered in lieu of the press conference he had thought about doing today https://t.co/tNI5uWLNDy

From the Guardian‘s live blog this afternoon:
Citing sources close to the former president, Haberman said Trump’s “initial version of the statement was more incendiary than what was released publicly” and that the statement was issued instead of a news conference that Trump had originally planned to hold today.
Aides were worried that he would go off track in a speech, she said.
Shitty is the word here.
Meanwhile, another legal avenue to prosecute the T-Rump for the Capitol-building riot opened up today. Along with the 9/11 commission on the incident, maybe the full, gruesome picture of that day, and events leading-up to it will get air play.
Case made comes via Law&Crime:
U.S. House Committee on Homeland Security Chair Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) sued former president Donald Trump and his sometimes personal attorney Rudy Giuliani in federal court on Tuesday morning under the Ku Klux Klan Act of 1871.
The lawsuit also names the far-right Proud Boys street gang and the Oath Keepers, a leading right-wing militia movement, as defendants.
The lawsuit alleges that Trump and the others “conspired to incite an assembled crowd to march upon and enter the Capitol of the United States for the common purpose of disrupting” the counting of Electoral College votes on Jan. 6 — the day that thousands of Trump supporters laid siege to the U.S. Capitol Complex following a speech by the 45th president at the White House Ellipse.
“As part of this unified plan to prevent the counting of Electoral College votes, Defendants Proud Boys and Oath Keepers, through their leadership, acted in concert to spearhead the assault on the Capitol while the angry mob that Defendants Trump and Giuliani incited descended on the Capitol,” the lawsuit alleges. “The carefully orchestrated series of events that unfolded at the Save America rally and the storming of the Capitol was no accident or coincidence. It was the intended and foreseeable culmination of a carefully coordinated campaign to interfere with the legal process required to confirm the tally of votes cast in the Electoral College.”
Thompson is suing for a declaratory judgment that Trump and the others violated the KKK Act, an injunction prohibiting them from taking similar action in the future, punitive damages, compensatory damages and attorney’s fees.
Maybe, too, the action a bridge to a jail cell.
And to close, T-Rump’s no-longer lawyer, vintage Rudy:
“I should sue you for libel…shut-up, idiot…”
