Good Day World!
It's been a reoccurring claim since Trump stole the 2016 election with Russia's help...
Trump believes he's above the law.
Any law. He has christened himself the Chosen One. His hardcore followers are ready to walk of cliffs of credibility for him at a mere tweet.
He's bragged on numerous occasions that he could shoot someone on 5th Avenue, and get away with it. Trump believes the Constitution is a pain in the ass and is constantly testing the courts to see how far he can go to get his way.
Despite having been impeached, he's confidently defiant. He knows GOP senators fear him and won't convict him for his crimes when his case goes before them.
As of the writing of this post, there's no doubt it will be a show trial. A sham. A kangaroo court with the accused and senate majority working hand-in-hand. Nothing short of a political miracle can change that.
When the senate trial is over, Americans will either know if their president is above the law (if Trump's acquitted), or if the guardrails the founder's came up with for our democracy failed.
There's a very scary possibility our system of checks-and-balances will collapse for the first time in American history.
If that's the case, we'll officially have the nation's first dictator.
How long Americans are going to tolerate that inconvenient fact will be decided in the November elections.
Time for me to walk on down the road....
