@3:38, there's a little girl being made to hold up a QAnon sign by her mother, and her face is like "helppppp meeee".

This is in the running for the most depressing 7 minutes of my life. Thank you.? The upshot is that Trump brought out all of these people from the shadows by making them feel comfortable enough to loudly yell their hatreds. It's kinda hard not to say "eh, maybe the seditionists should get a little canceled for a while". And by that I mean "legal justice".

Anyone in Congress still repeating "the big lie", that the election was stolen, congratulations, you've helped legitimize and mobilize a white supremacist insurrection. And almost all of the enablers understand that, by now, yet still either lie or remain silent. Pathetic, the lot of them.

Lindsey Graham goes on Fox News to say "If the republican party voted to convict Trump in the impeachment trial, that would destroy the republican party". Look, man, if making the morally right decisions destroys the GOP, that's your problem. That is not an argument against doing the right thing, dumbass.
