Just have to stop and laugh out loud in awe at the magnitude of his legacy

As president;

1) You directly and indirectly caused HALF A MILLION Americans to die

2) You broke records for job loss and national debt

3) You were impeached twice, first time in history.

4) You tried to bribe a foreign government for personal gain.

5) You encouraged violent followers to invade the halls of Congress to stop the vote finalization. Five died

6). You lost the House for your party.

7). You lost the Senate for your party

8). You lost the WH for your party.

78% of Covid hospitalizations were of people overweight

https://www.cnbc.com/2021/03/08/covid-cdc-study-finds-roughly-78percent-of-people-hospitalized-were-overweight-or-obese.html

Excerpts:

About 78% of people who have been hospitalized, needed a ventilator or died from Covid-19 have been overweight or obese, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in a new study Monday.

Just over 42% of the U.S. population was considered obese in 2018, according to the agency’s most recent statistics. Overweight is defined as having a body mass index of 25 or more, while obesity is defined as having a BMI of 30 or more.

“As clinicians develop care plans for COVID-19 patients, they should consider the risk for severe outcomes in patients with higher BMIs, especially for those with severe obesity,” the CDC wrote.

Jeez, did Qtrump realize we'd lump his entire January 6th crowd together?

As if they were ALL guilty of storming the Capitol.

Evidently, there are no good #s on:
1) How many broke in, but did see a 250 estimate.

2) How many were in the entire crowd? "Thousands" were a guess. NBC predicted 30k would attend - unlikely that happened.

Perhaps we can make a wag - less than 10% broke in? 90+% didn't?

If you believe Qtrump and his cronies orchestrated this day, they used the dimmer followers (90+%) to provide cover for the core group of insurrectionists.

Yet we, and the news, blame the entire crowd for breaking in? Did Qtrump know we would? And, he is now using that to his advantage. Snippets of his speech the other day show that. He now has them believing that they, the 90+%, were loving followers being blamed for the insurrection.

Predicting crowd size

Please ask Biden to do one thing because feel certain trump asked Rep Gov cronies

To make it a total cluster in finding a vaccine, getting an appointment, knowing who and when and where to go/call. To be clear, only know about AL and TX (and CT). You have to really dig.

Yes, he IS that cruel and petty and wants to make Biden look bad. Didn't think this would happen but trump still has stranglehold. And he DID say he would be 'laying traps,'

If President Biden has good numbers yet...:

-1- Gather #Vaccines delivered; #Vaccines Administered; % of Population vaccinated.

-2- Go on TV once a week and announce the top three states with the highest percentages


This will, create competition, and hopefully improve red state rollout.

Winds of Change - 2016 vs 2020 - cool map

https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/2020/elections/electorate-changes-2016-election-vs-2020/



You can see the changes in the blowing particles on this map. The red flowing right is greater support for Trump than in 2016.

The blue jetting left shows more Democratic lean than four years ago.

This sounds like when the impeachment conviction "NO VOTE" die was cast

McConnell was either creating his own out for a no vote...or creating an out for others. Or both!

Jeez, the MF got away with it again!

We can, rightly so, blame Republicans

We can, rightly so, praise our team.

But bottom line, he got away with it again

Preet, on CNN, said it was doubtful that anyone would take him to court over the insurrection. He said they would think if they couldn't win with facts and political persuasion (impeachment) then it was doomed in a strictly legal venue.

Pelosi pretty much quashed the idea of trying to censure and include a provision where he would never run again. For now anyway.

So in a way I'm a little bit relieved. There was never any justice for the fact that this devil kept the virus information from us. He knew it was airborne and deadly and my dad would be alive today if he hadn't done that.

Bottom line it's time to forget about him for our own sanity. He is definitely sullied and I don't think he'll ever win a major election again so that's a plus. But I can't let my hatred for him consume me anymore. It's time (for me anyway) for him to just go away and get out of our lives.

Tonight in DC: Kitchen table talks vs. $10k sofa talks

" We will be ok! Thankfully President Biden is helping us bridge this gap financially. We have to move on, for our own sanity, from the circumstances of your mom's death. WE thought her going to a nursing home was OK...because trump and others did not warn us, and it wasn't but there is no answer to that"

and


"Are you willing to give up this cushy life in DC? This Georgetown life style? Our friends? And go back to Mississippi? because I think he's guilty as hell! I know, I said the whole thing was unconstitutional... But I am having a pang of doubt. "
