Description

The second impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump will begin today.

This time, the case against Mr. Trump is more straightforward: Did his words incite chaos at the Capitol on Jan. 6?

We look ahead to the arguments both sides will present.

Guest: Jim Rutenberg, a writer at large for The New York Times and The Times Magazine.

The Rabbit Hole

I love how the New York Times takes history out of context. Trump is asked if he'll tell a group to stand down and does. Because he says to stand down that means he must be their leader. Biden calls conservatives hateful, conservatives follow his tour bus to ruin his visit to a red state. They must be violent thugs. Trump says fight like hell and he must be taken literally because no one has ever said fight like hell for (insert political agenda) before. 🙄
