Groundhog Day 2: Trump Acquitted | The Weekly Dumpster Fire

By Christian Mabry | 2/19/2021, 12:01 PM CST

Unsurprisingly, spineless Republican senators failed, for the second time, to hold Donald Trump accountable for his actions. This utter abortion of justice was ushered in by a 57-43 vote, cementing in history the fact our current system is an abject failure when it boils down to holding the rich accountable for their actions.

Watching Senator McConnell vote to acquit the former president and then, moments later, admit that he is guilty of the charges leveled against him, was a stark reminder that a massive percentage of the U.S. population not only still supports the aspiring dictator, but literally believes he won the election.

What a time to be alive.
