6. I agree, it really was!

He often addresses topics that no one else does, like medical devices recently or foreign elections, and I know he prefers not to dwell on Trump, but he said exactly what needed to be said. The prevailing opinion now seems to be that impeachment might not remove Trump from office. But, as with Nixon, we have to make an effort and get the facts out there - too many people have fallen for his lies - and if we do nothing we're still stuck with him anyway.

7. Thank you Rhiannon!

Great show! I love John. He does such a great job at educating us on these topics and he does so in such an amusing way.

God, every time I hear Trump speak or being interviewed I just want to bang my head against the wall. I hate him more with each passing day, which I didn't think possible. I just want to see him taken out in the most brutal and humiliating way. There is no way we can let him have another four years. The thought of it is just unbearable.

8. I agree that this may have been his best ever.

I know he likes to bring up topics that no one else does, but he recognizes that we are truly living through a national emergency. And I absolutely agree with his point that with impeachment we really have nothing to lose. If the Senate refuses to remove him after all the evidence has been presented, it exposes them for the traitorous hypocrites that they are - and at least anyone who wasn't paying attention before (like that "conservative news" lady they keep showing) will now know the truth. And how will we be any worse off than doing nothing and allowing him to continue destroying this country??
