Is Treason Against The Law?

Here we have a former President, impeached twice, acknowledged as the main source of instigating a bloody insurrection and attempted coup (right here in the good ole you ess of aay), and he's out there in public still spouting the big lie and continuing to be the seditionist shitgibbon we all know him to be.

So why isn't someone cuffing and perp walking him right into custody? The authorities are so good at shooting first and asking questions later, how come we aren't busting this dude's chops? Cause he's white? Cause of the stink it'll raise? Cause it's not prosecutable?

We're such a civilized, free country, everyone gets their day in court (except, oh I dunno...George Floyd maybe?). Is that what we're waiting for? Why are we waiting...exactly? For the 'Rona to finish the job? Or until he gets behind the wheel of a car? He's already killed half a million Americans. Waiting on the NYDA to finally issue indictments for tax fraud?

And when some gun nut in FL decides enough is enough, and lets loose on Smarm y Lardo, am I just supposed to pray that the orange tub of goo gets slathered with lead? (I do that anyway, as a matter of course).

Treason. Could be just another breakfast cereal for all we care.
