Senator Blunt said on CBS 'Face The Nation, "I think the country is the right way to hold presidents accountable. He should be very careful over the next 10 days that his behavior is what is." You would expect from the leader of the world's greatest country. My personal opinion is that he touched a hot stove on Wednesday and probably won't touch it again. If so, I think we should every day when we meet approaching the last day of his presidency, thinking more about the first day of the next presidency and the last day of his presidency. "
Not inciting unrest to overthrow the government is the kind of lesson no man should ever learn when serving as President of the United States. The free tickets for Congress-elected Republicans are endless for Trump.
They are ready to overlook riots and coup attempts. Among all the reasons Senate Republicans lost their majority, making Trump possible was consistently high on the list.
Blunt would even say Trump was a naughty boy and should behave better in the next week and a half, but he didn't have the courage to do anything to hold Trump accountable.
Trump needs to be charged and removed for failing to learn his lesson. If he's not activated, he'll take even more extreme measures to try to stay in power.
