We're still talking about him.

We got through the four years, barely. But he's still in the foreground, dominating the news.

I hope his physical and mental health continues to deteriorate. Its the only way to make him go away.

unless itís related to him being charged with crimes. Iíve decided to pay attention to my mental health and focus on doing things I can do to help Democrats locally and nationally.

I heartily recommend that we all adopt this position. Now, if we could only convince the media to follow suit.

Iíd be tickled if he were never referred to here again.

The world moves on; itís time to crawl out of the orange rut.
Like you, I have little things I can do in service to my community, and I best see to them.

12. Well, it's not just "us"

The impeachment trial is in the news, obviously. There will be legal issues in both Georgia and New York. But the republicans and the media will continue talking about him - speculating on 2024, etc. It's not going to end any time soon unfortunately. Mostly due to republicans dreadful power mongering.

I'm doing my best to focus on democrats and what we can and are doing.

25. So true

I went to Huffington Post this morning and the front page is trump, trump, and more trump. No different than the last 5 years. Not a single Biden article (and they are very anti-trump). I am so sick of seeing him and having his stupid face in my face. Yes--if he ceased to exist, the MAGAts would go away, Q would go away, Senate r's would have no one to be in terror of while worshiping, it would all just go away, like the miracle he promised would happen when covid just went away last April. The whole world would be a far better place.

27. The terrorist attack & coup was less than 2 months ago. That has not gone away & will not go away

Trumpistas are still with us, worshipping El Caudillo del Mar a Lago. And given the cult-like nature of their worship, they will still be with us even after he kicks the bucket. They are not giving up.

The Old Confederacy has been revived, only metastasized far beyond its original borders. The Confederate battle flag is now proudly flown and used as decor on cars and clothing is places that never were slave states, and often were not even states back then. They are not going away.

Trump is still grifting. Trumpís spawn have political ambitions themselves. You think this is a joke? Somehow I think Marco Rubio does not think itís amusing that Ivanka is going to primary him. Ivanka is reputed to be Donald in a dress. Junior ó egads ó Junior is trying to be his daddy, but he just does not have that gold-plated huckster conman persona worked out. Every time I see another of his videos online he looks sick and desperate. They are not going away.

I would LOVE to shut the door on this episode, but we are still in it.

That said, Iíd like to hear a lot more about Bidenís progress!

31. I am just bored by all things Trump...

I am so over it, don't care what he thinks, what his cult members think. I drive by Trump corner last Friday, 15-20 cultists on the main intersection in FL. waving their flags. They have been there every Friday afternoon for 5 years.

Back in the day I would want to flip them off, a month ago I looked at them and laughed....last Friday they really didn't even register. Just drove by without a second thought.

There isn't much left of interest now that the impeachment vote is done. He and his supporters have zero to add to anything. Yawn.

32. Let's remember rump no longer has a doctor at his beck and call.

Every time he sneezed a doctor appeared. We all summarized that if taken to Walter Reed late at night something was up of great concern. And of course we were kept in the dark. Now he goes it alone. With his diet and lack of exercise who knows what is in store for him.

34. I watched exactly zero of the impeachment trial

The trial was a foregone conclusion. I already had a very good idea of what happened on Jan. 6th. I did not need the moment-to-moment drama and theater. (I'm not saying the trial wasn't necessary for a full accounting of what happened. It was incredibly important it be done. I'm just saying I personally didn't stand to benefit from experiencing it).

I'm focused on the Biden administration. What is he doing, what's coming next, what needs to be done to repair what Trump has smashed, cracked, or broken.

I don't want to talk about that man any more. I'll keep apprised of any criminal cases involving him. I'll support full accountability and hang him around the neck of the Republican party at will.

I just don't feel the need to talk about him on the daily. The boil is lanced. I don't want to constantly pick at the scab. I want to know how to bandage it.

40. He's still there, as are his followers, and is still considered the "leader" of a

major political party, all of which remain an immediate and existential threat to our republic.

I personally wish he would stroke out as a late Covid complication, but we're likely stuck with him as a significant threat for the foreseeable future, sadly.
