WE?

Who are the "WE"?

Last night Trump said: "It doesn't really feel like we're being impeached. The country is doing better than ever before, we did nothing wrong, and we have tremendous support in the Republican Party like we've never had before."

Trump was the only person impeached by Congress last night.

4. Yeah, I read a comment somewhere

that one of the Republican defenses of Trump is that he never uses the collective or "royal we," so that "us" could only mean the US of A.

Oopsie.

3. The old royal "We." Well that and...

he wants his followers to identify with him to the point that they feel that they are the ones being impeached and thus, rejected.

Very cult-like, dontcha think?

5. It's the royal "we." Pluralis majestatis.

The use of a plural pronoun to refer to a monarch, as in “We are not amused.” Fat Nixon thinks of himself monarchically.

8. The Cretin conman must have an adoring audience of sycophants to survive...

Manipulative control of the STUPID.
Alone he is nothing.
Assigning blame, creating fear and rejecting any accountability or responsible is the only way he can live with the fact that he has no redeeming character.
