Alternate title: Ukraine, Donald Trump and Joe Biden — Quid Pro No
First, for all those of you deep in a dark fantasy of impeaching Trump, an oldie but a goodie
Watch. Recapture the excitement as you waited expectantly for impeachment to overturn the election results but a few months ago. This one has it all. Progressive politics as religion. An indictment of Trump for the high crime and misdemeanor of winning the 2016 election, of being the “worst” and, in addition, committing almost all forty of the fantasy crimes and wrongs articulated by the NYT that Bookworm addressed in her post yesterday. After you’re done with the sing-along, might I suggest a safe space and some My Little Pony coloring books. Hold on tight to your dreams.
For the rest of us . . .
President Trump this morning released the transcript of his phone call with President of Ukraine. The transcript of the entire conversation is below. A few comments on it first.
