From an Facebook friend:
"This is not the country my parents fought to protect and defend.
We are watching a coward get away with murder—as he predicted he could. We see betrayal of democratic principles by congressional leaders because their path to reelection glory and pension and benefits depends on turning their eyes away from the horror.
Our children and grandchildren see bullies and liars get off free —something many parents and schools would not allow.
The reduction to rubble of the Republican party cannot come soon enough."
