[Teri Kanefield](https://terikanefield-blog.com/trump-responds-to-the-articles-of-impeachment/): _“It’s pure Trump: A rapid, continuous (and exhausting) stream of absurdity and lies. One lie can be managed. A few can be debunked. But stuffing several into each paragraph becomes an effective propaganda technique.”_
Bottom line: Trump is a lying, cheating, asshole of a criminal. Talk about gangster thugs. He’s all of those things. To buy all his bullshit is to show a willingness to destroy democracy and embrace all the things he stands for; greed, cruelty, misogyny.
