I guess it’s only half an asterisk

I guess it’s only half an asterisk

After the Democrats voted on their two lame articles of impeachment, CNN talking heads excitedly exclaimed that from here on out, President Trump’s name will be followed by an asterisk.

To wit: President Donald Trump*
*Impeached on December 18, 2019.

Yes, my friends.  It will be the only thing people remember about the Trump Presidency – that asterisk.

So yesterday, after I got done shoveling snow, I was upstairs changing out of my snow shoveling clothes, and I got to thinking about Nancy’s grand plan not to send the articles over to the Senate for the trial.

And I wondered.  If they never follow through on the impeachment process, is President Trump actually impeached?

I mean, if you take all the time to make cake batter but never bother putting it in the oven to bake – let alone frost and decorate it.  It isn’t a cake.

Hmmm.  It was definitely something to think about.

Well, a few hours later as I was resting my Lupus body post-snow shoveling, I went onto Twitter and I saw this tweet.

I couldn’t believe it.  This nerdy “legal expert” called by Jerry Nadler must have read my mind.  In Bloomberg, he makes exactly the argument I was noodling out.

Nancy’s “solemn” impeachment is just cake batter.

They’ve only done half the work.

So I guess Trump’s name only gets half an asterisk.

Or, perhaps he still gets a full asterisk, but the asterisk will be decidedly different.

To wit: President Donald Trump*
*The first President to almost be impeached, but the House didn’t finish the job.

Seems confusing, does it not?

I mean, this isn’t even a half-baked impeachment.

After all the drama and Kabuki, the Democrats aren’t bothering to put the cake in the oven.

Surely Nancy can explain the thinking behind this, right?

Okay, that was probably expecting too much of Nancy.  She herself isn’t a lawyer after all.

But that’s what you get when you listen to idiots like CNN’s Larry Tribe.

It’s hilarious, is it not, that talking heads on cable actually think this comedy of errors will result in a “black mark” on Trump’s Presidency?

Is it possible that Nancy never intended to actually go through with this?

After all, this shampeachment was played out solely for the benefit of the news media.  And the House voting was all they needed to plaster their front pages with screaming headlines reading “IMPEACHED.”

It was a made-for-TV impeachment – full of phony sets, non-functioning props and a whole lot of bad acting.

The Democrats only needed to give the impression they impeached President Trump.  The media will happily do the rest.

So if there is an asterisk after President Trump’s name, I really don’t think the Democrats or the news media are going to like what that asterisk points to.

To wit: President Donald Trump*
* First US President to be subjected to a phony, made-for-TV “impeachment” that wasn’t really an impeachment.

Nancy really screwed the pooch when she decided to pursue this. And the longer she let this go on, the more obvious it is that her decision was a poor one.

    The house didn’t even make “cake batter”, they just took out their crayons and drew a picture of cake batter, and not a good one.

    Either way, if they put what they’ve got in the oven it’s just going to burst into flames and set the smoke alarms off.

    Where’s my popcorn?

    Translation: “We’ll wait until we have a Democrat majority in the Senate to deliver the bill.”
    But now a question; When President Trump wins reelection, will that nullify the impeachment? 46 would be a new president, starting with a clean record.

    Hang in there Dianny, Algore says no more snow soon, real soon.

      He’ll still be #45. It goes by person, not terms, but they won’t even hold the house when the indictments start rolling out. I hope they are timed to sync with the State of the Union with handcuffed dems seen on TV news the day before and he reminds them that the penalty for treason is death.

    Um he will still be #45 when re-elected. Obama 44. Bush 43…

    But it would be a NEW house… I think things not done in last house stay undone like transmission of articles…

    Since this Botoxed Witch is holding up sending the articles to the Senate, let’s start a movement: “Impeachment Hostage Day #____” (add the number as the days pass).

    Asterisk! We don’t need no stinkin asterisk. President Trump is still president. An asterisk needs to be placed behind Speaker Nanny Pelosi (D) name. Ala Barry Bonds.

    No big surprise. The dems do everything HALF ASSterisk

    Trump will go down in history as the most investigated and the most squeaky clean person to ever hold any office in DC. and Nancy will be remembered only for this massive abuse of congressional power. The asterisk might be that historians debate whether she had dementia at the time or not.

    The Dems have as much power now as they will ever have. They’re likely to lose the House in 2020, and with Barr and Durham’s coming blizzard of indictments and subpoenas that will bury the Deep State Dems and cohorts, the DNC may have trouble finding anyone to run for office that’s not in prison.
