Re: the above: YES. It’s like “the missing stair” argument– yes we know this guy is a horrible douchebag who treats women terribly, but that’s just the way he is so we can’t do anything about it. NO. He doesn’t do anything about it because you act like it’s ok. It’s not OK for Republicans to not convict. Don’t let them be missing stairs. Any Republican who doesn’t convict needs to cause SHOCK, not complacency. (Also: Cruz needs to resign months ago.)
This is a pretty wild thread.
