President Donald Trump has been acquitted of impeachment charges for a second time.
Maybe now, the Democrats can move on from their TDS and actually try and enact their terrible agenda. But don’t hold your breath. There is already talk of senators using the 14th Amendment to bar Trump from running again. They are still very, very scared of him and apparently, the possibility that he could win if he ran again.
The final vote was 57 to convict, 43 to acquit, falling well short of the 2/3 threshold necessary for a conviction.
The “Republicans” who voted to convict Trump were:
- Richard Burr
- Susan Collins
- Lisa Murkowski
- Mitt Romney
- Ben Sasse
- Bill Cassidy
- Pat Toomey
So, that is the list of RINO’s and turncoats who need to be voted out of office.
Trump praised the victory, thanked his supporters and promised he’d soon emerge with a “vision for a bright, radiant, and limitless American future.”
The former president, who has largely stayed silent since his impeachment, took aim at his opponents.
“This has been yet another phase of the greatest witch hunt in the history of our country,” Trump said. “No president has ever gone through anything like it, and it continues because our opponents cannot forget the almost 75 million people, the highest number ever for a sitting president, who voted for us just a few short months ago.”
Trump also promised that he is not going away.
Our historic, patriotic and beautiful movement to Make America Great Again has only just begun,” he said. “In the months ahead I have much to share with you, and I look forward to continuing our incredible journey together to achieve American greatness for all of our people. There has never been anything like it!”
Reaction across Twitter has been swift.
Acquitted. Again. What a waste of time.
Maybe now Democrats can actually try and do something useful for the American people for once?

The House Impeachment Managers launched an unconstitutional show trial to humiliate the former President and his supporters. The Impeachment Managers have accomplished nothing but to extend the pain of the American people. They achieved one thing – Donald J. Trump’s acquittal.

Well, O.J. was acquitted too…
And Trump will be remembered in a similar fashion.
