I just have to say something



I hate "smarmy" and most of the repubs being interviewed today on the news channels are the epitome of "smarmy"

I am also sick to death of repubs getting away with infractions..like Rand Paul.. if he won't follow the rules, eject the bastard.

I am frustrated with the coverage. When Chuck Todd & Andrea Mitchell come on I turn the channel, but CNN is not much better
I don't know if I will ever ever get over this horror show. I try to give people the benefit of the doubt. I try to be kind and empathetic. But I am furious that they have allowed the co-conspiritors to stay on the jury. I am livid that they are trying to normalize the coup..that I believe is STILL going on. ( Am I over the wire here? - it's hard to tell these days) I am so tired of being angry and frustrated.

I live alone so I don't have too many people to talk to, hence the rant on DU.

Thanks for reading this, if you did.

Also, thanks again for the hearts. When I say they lifted my spirits, I really meant it.

1. I was just thinking the same thing about Chuck Todd and Andrea Mitchell.


CNN IS just as bad.

3. From my perspective, your anger is completely justified.

And your exhaustion is completely natural. It has been a rough five years.

Peace.

4. You are correct - the coup is not over until more plotters are neutralized.

Need to remove Hawley, Cruz, Boebert, Greene, et al.
Need to actually convict/jail the terrorists who executed the plot (instead of sending them on Mexican vacations).
Need to bar Trump forever.

5. Hugggggs. Just remember that your DU family is always here. No, I do not think you are

over the wire about the ongoing attempted coup. These things are generally not a "one-off", and this one clearly has deep roots and lots of limbs. The sedition caucus and its founders, enablers and supporters must be watched very closely. They are simply waiting until our attention is elsewhere.

6. I changed the channel too!

My partner said what is wrong with CT and AM? I said they are both clueless idiots. I guess I have my rants too. I'm right with you, solara!

8. Yeah the news talkers have already acquitted trump.

67 senators will not convict and 74,000,000 votes for trump are big talking points. Like there were never voters who voted for the loser before?

9. Don't call it a rant. It is merely a fact based outreach at a higher volume....:)) Hey, we people

that live alone need to spout off now and then. My cat and my dog are pretty patient but that's because they have ulterior motives.

11. I just refuse to watch Repuqs anymore

No matter who the talking head host is, when they put a RepuQ on, I change the channel.

I've been watching the trial on C-SPAN via YouTube, streaming. No commentary, no ads, just coverage.
