It’s over. We won. The Democrats lost. Donald Trump is still president. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the starting quarterback for this impeachment sham, failed in his bid to execute a soft coup to undo the results of the 2016 election. For four years, Democrats have plotted to impeach Trump. They hate him. They can’t stand that he beat Hillary Clinton. So, the tried to get him on Russian collusion, but couldn’t after ex-Special Counsel Robert Mueller filed a report noting zero evidence to support the Trump-Russia collusion myth.
Democrats then had to move onto this recent Ukraine allegation, where the Left alleges that Trump tried to shakedown Ukraine, refusing to give them aid unless they opened an investigation into Hunter Biden who was sitting on the board of an energy company in the country. He got that $50,000/month gig when daddy Biden was vice president, raising allegations that he got the job to sell access to then-top Obama officials. Hunter has zero experience in the energy sector. It’s an issue that’s still creating headaches for the Biden campaign.
For weeks, Democrats made their shoddy case. Those of use unafflicted by Trump derangement syndrome knew this outcome. There was no way the Republican Senate would vote to convict and remove Trump, but Democrats persisted. In the process, Trump’s approval numbers spiked, and swing states soured on this impeachment circus. It did the exact opposite of what Democrats had hoped—and now they’ve squandered their majority on this hyper-partisan impeachment clown show.
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), one Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) squad sisters, is not happy about the vote, saying that the vote to acquit Trump created a dictatorship. That’s fake news, but lady—are you seriously shocked by the end result?
It's worse than letting a criminal get off. Their vote created a dictatorship. https://t.co/5fynRIxadA— Rashida Tlaib (@RashidaTlaib) February 5, 2020

At the same time, it’s very fitting that her “impeach the motherf**ker” war cry when she was first elected blew up in her face. You tried, Rashida. And you failed. Also, is anyone else smirking that she left the State of the Union early because Trump mentioned Brett Kavanaugh (via Fox News):
Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., indicated on Tuesday that she couldn't handle staying in the House chamber after President Trump started praising Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his State of the Union address.
"Even the mention of Brett Kavanaugh for me is a trigger," Tlaib told MSNBC's Rachel Maddow, who asked about her decision to leave.
"Just as a woman in America, the fact that he rightfully was accused and having an incredibly strong woman come for the public and the world and tell her story of sexual assault by this person who was appointed to the Supreme Court is just ... I couldn't stand still and not do anything about it and I needed to walk away from that," she added.
Oh, please, lady—you wanted to bolt from this from the start.
Anyways, happy acquittal day, everyone else.
