Does anyone know who will be the next President Pro Temp of the Senate? I can't help but wonder given how insane things are.


Presumably Patrick Leahy.

Additional Dump pardons include Lil Wayne and Kodak Black per Rolling Stone. (Besides that fat unwashed pig Steve Bannon.)

Thank you!

 

I hope Biden/Harris spend as little time as possible together in public after tomorrow.  At least We know NP and Leahy are on the side of right.

If Trump doesn't pardon any lawmakers, "economically anxious" rioters, or Assange or Snowden, but does pardon various rappers and a rotting corpse who bilked true believers dry, then we're going to see enough contortions from Trump's most devoted "progressive" supports to get them on Circus of the Stars.

The crowd for Trump's exit seems dreadfully small. He had pushed for a big one.

So far, Trump has pardoned 2 rappers, likely the only black people who will get any pardon from his pen, the rest, likely all white men. Let's not pretend otherwise. He put many more to death.

 

Speaking of the loser, yet another Trump-era EPA rule has been overturned and thrown out.

There he goes, followed by Jared and Ivanka.

 

 

 

Oh God. They're once again playing "Gloria" as Marine One touches down at Andrews. Last heard when it went viral an hour before the Capitol riot! You can't make this up.


The crowd is indeed tiny.

Now they're literally playing "Don't Stop Believing". Having this son of a bitch slowly descend to a mostly abandoned airfield in a cold solitary morning to the muffled strains of the song from the final scene of The Sopranos is certainly a choice.

Trump does not look happy and this looks pretty empty. Cannons are going off, though.

 

He just made Melania talk!

 

He appears to be sliding into rally stump speech.

 

Earlier:

 

 

He is presently rambling at Andrews Base, like some sort of rally. "It's a rocket ship up!" The COVID numbers will "skyrocket downward!"

 

One final mention of "the China Virus" and saying "we wanna pay great love" to the American people.

 

This crowd really is tiny.

 

"I wish the new administration great success." He's just rambling now. Are they gonna have to play him off?

 

"We will be back in some form."

 

"Have a good life. We will see you soon." And he walks off to, yes, YMCA. Looking miserable.
