“This is what the wrong side of history looks like,” the late-night TV host captioned a collage of the 51 Senate Republicans who, with their vote, effectively ensured Trump’s acquittal over the Ukraine scandal.
Only GOP Sens. Mitt Romney (Utah) and Susan Collins (Maine) voted for witnesses. Kimmel tagged his tweet with the (majority anti-Republican) #ImpeachmentTrialSham hashtag, which trended nationally alongside #GOPCowards, #GOPCoverUp and #RIPAmerica.
51 to 49.
It’s over at this point.
Donald Trump will be acquitted.
Democracy is officially cancelled.
Next Tuesday, an American Dictator will rub all of this in our face during his State of the Union.
Now it’s up to The People. Register to vote. #ImpeachmentTrialSham
