Short Ribs and Random Thoughts, Jan 7 2020 Can we come out yet?

CALLS FOR TRUMP’S OUSTER — California Reps. Barbara Lee, Sara Jacobs, Alan Lowenthal, Mark Takano, Doris Matsui, Jackie Speier, Ted Lieu, Judy Chu, Jimmy Gomez, Nanette Barragán, Jared Huffman, Anna Eshoo, Eric Swalwell, Jerry McNerney and Mike Thompson all called for either impeaching Trump again, invoking the 25th Amendment or otherwise removing the president from office. Remember Mike Thompson? He’s in our neighboring district now.

Oliver Darcy writes: “It’s possible Trump might face some consequences for inciting the act of domestic terrorism we saw Wednesday.

The sad fact is we don’t appear to live in a society where people can be truly held responsible for their actions because a lack of shared reality works to protect partisans from their dishonest actions…”

AND EVEN….BILL BARR told the AP that TRUMP’S role in inciting the violent mob was a “betrayal of his office and supporters.”
