Trump has been arrested. And I hear he’s being tried as an adult (I stole that from someone much wittier than I am on the internet). I have feelings. You can find me singing the Hallelujah chorus all over the place. I’m all, like Laura Linney in Love Actually, (If haven’t seen this movie, sweet baby JESUS, watch immediately), when she brings home her totally hunky co-worker Karl, who she’s had a crush on for “precisely two years, seven months, three days, and an hour and thirty minutes” and finally kisses him, and does a little dance.
THIS IS HOW I FEEL.
I’ve been hearing a lot of “THIS IS UNPRECEDENTED IN OUR COUNTRY.” But, WASN’T EVERYTHING ABOUT HIS TIME IN THE OVAL OFFICE UNPRECEDENTED IN THIS COUNTRY? And not in a good way.
Republicans say it’s politically motivated. Isn’t it actually the oldest law in the book–WHEN YOU GET CAUGHT BREAKING THE LAW IN THIS COUNTRY, YOU GET ARRESTED, AND TRIED IN A COURT OF LAW. I mean, am I missing something? I mean, if those same people are going to continue to hold tight to the Second Amendment right to bear arms, which means you can carry around an AR-15 and shoot up little kids in a school, then they are mighty law-abiding folks, right? And if they can also support a Supreme Court that has its head up our daughter’s vaginas, ruling on what kinda decor they can have in there, then surely they should support someone who has broken the law being arrested, right? I mean, AMIRIGHT?
I am looking forward to the perp walk, and all the other shenanigans that will follow, including the three other cases, which will hopefully be brought against him–the Georgia voting scandal and January 6 Insurrection among them. This guy has broken the law more than I have broken my promise to buy no more jewelry.
Yes, I do realize this may further divide our country and cause insurrection-ish violence. But are we supposed to ignore that Trump has broken the law? Are we supposed to handle it like The Mob–“Don’t arrest Big Joey, or he’ll kill your family.” NO, YOU DO SOMETHING ILLEGAL AND YOU GET ARRESTED.
Anyway, don’t bother me on Tuesday, I’ll be watching what I’ve been waiting for for years. I am grateful we still arrest people who do wrong. If there were a police department who arrested the morally and ethically bankrupt –Trump would already be serving a life sentence.
