The Royal "Us"

Republicans on the Judiciary Committee, like Jim Jordan, like to point out that when Mr Trump said, "I would like for you to do 'us' a favor, though"..., he was talking about us, the country, not himself.

However, when we discover what the "favor" was, we see that it was not for "us", or our country, it was for the personal political benefit of Donald John Trump.

3. I took the royal "us" to mean his cabal of crooks

as directed by Putin for his own benefit, not as in for our nation's benefit to defend Ukraine.

4. You are probably right.

His defenders want to believe he was doing it for "us" and our country. He wasn't. He was doing it for himself. It is comical to suggest that Donald Trump was interested in cleaning up corruption.

7. He then told President Zelensky to speak to his **PERSONAL** attorney.

It's bullshit. It was never "us" as a country.
