After Impeachment

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JANUARY 15, 2021

         PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS BEEN IMPEACHED A SECOND TIME. WITH SO FEW DAYS TO GO BEFORE HIS DEPARTURE FROM OFFICE THERE IS UNLIKELY TO BE A SENATE TRIAL AND EVEN IF THERE IS, WHAT DIFFERENCE WILL IT MAKE UNLESS HE IS BARRED FROM RUNNING FOR OFFICE AGAIN. DEMOCRATS WOULD LIKE THAT. THEY FEAR THE MOVEMENT HE HAS LEAD.

         THE PRESIDENT DELIVERED AN ADDRESS FROM THE OVAL OFFICE WEDNESDAY NIGHT THAT WAS MEASURED IN TONE, DENOUNCING VIOLENCE. HE SHOULD HAVE DELIVERED IT BEFORE IMPEACHMENT AND EVEN BEFORE THE RIOTS. HE DIDN’T ADMIT FUELING THE FLAMES, BUT HE SHOULD HAVE TAKEN SOME RESPONSIBILITY. AMERICANS APPRECIATE HUMILITY AND OWNING-UP TO ONE’S MISTAKES. THAT IS NOT IN TRUMP’S DNA.

         WHERE DOES IT GO FROM HERE? WATCH FOR STATES LIKE NEW YORK TO COME AFTER HIS BUSINESSES AND PUNISH HIM IN ANY WAY THEY CAN BECAUSE HE IS A THREAT TO LIBERAL CONTROL OF THE COUNTRY. WHETHER HE WILL REMAIN A FORCE IN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY REMAINS TO BE SEEN, BUT ANY REPUBLICAN LEADER WHO EMERGES MUST ENGAGE THOSE WHO FEEL LEFT OUT OF THE AMERICA THEY LOVE, WHICH TRUMP DID IN WAYS NOT SEEN IN MANY YEARS. I’M CAL THOMAS.
