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.
