Give Trump a taste of his own medicine, lock him up.

So, the Senate voted not to convict Donald Trump for starting the riot at the Capitol that killed five people and could’ve killed many more, including Vice President Mike Pence and members of Congress. 

Not that I care about a Senate conviction, because that doesn’t send you to jail anyway. It’s like a political timeout. You stand in the corner and they take away some perks, but you still get to go home at the end of the day. 

So, I’d rather not get all hung up on a Senate conviction. I want to see what happens when Sister Letitia James, New York’s Attorney General, gets him for financial crimes and has the chance to put him in prison. I want to see Sister Fani Willis, the D.A. in Fulton County, Georgia, when she gets him on election fraud. I want to see handcuffs and prison bars, not Senate floor speeches that don’t mean squat.

Take Mitch McConnell’s speech after he voted to acquit Donald Trump.  

“There is no question that President Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of that day,” McConnell said. “The people who stormed this building believed they were acting on the wishes and instructions of their President.

“And their having that belief was a foreseeable consequence of the growing crescendo of false statements, conspiracy theories, and reckless hyperbole which the defeated President kept shouting into the largest megaphone on planet Earth.”

Well, you should’ve voted to convict him Mitch. Provoking is the same as inciting. Practically and morally responsible means he’s guilty. And if the people thought they were acting on the president’s instructions, it probably means they heard the same thing we did. He told them to do it. 

So, if it’s all the same to you, I’ll wait for the handcuffs, because I do agree with Mitch McConnell on one thing. Trump hasn’t gotten away with anything … yet.

I’m a huge Jalen Hurts fan, but this loss is on him. I know Scott fumbled and Reagor dropped that last pass, but you can’t throw 3 interceptions in a game. Hopefully he learns from this and stops forcing passes into coverage. #frustrating
The acquittal of #KyleRittenhouse opens the door for white vigilantes to kill anyone they want to. It also puts a spotlight on the judge’s biased actions during the trial.
God is so good. Two years ago today we founded @ManUpPHL with a  citywide meeting on gun violence. Tonight we celebrate that with a dinner and strategy session with mentors and mentees who are working together to change lives. We are fully funded, we have committed volunteers, and we have a Listening to the Streets initiative that gets brothers off the streets and into jobs. This week we release our first white paper based on that program. We work to end gun violence one life at a time. Can’t wait to see what the next two years brings!
