Senate Republicans siding with Trump are hopelessly evil. They applaud wrong

as they oppose everything right and good.

They do not deserve benefit of the doubt.

Their evil needs to be pointed out every day.

They do not love this country or its people.

This isn’t just a political difference. They are psychopaths.

Trump accountable. But the 2021 Senate body has been bred for this moment of supreme cowardice.

They have no reasonable justification for their betrayal.

But with this Republican Party, it will never be too late to start.

10. A lot of people don't believe that people can be so evil, but I've thought that that is just naive

I had to endure a lot of bullying when I was young by bullies, which attacked me for nothing more than me just not fitting in well. Their complete lack of humanity for the harm they were doing me showed me evil early in my life (and they also were enabled by timid teachers who didn’t care to defend me.)

Then the eight years of the Bush Administration showed me that many of these bullies grow up and stay evil. Seeing the behavior of Republicans within the last 20 years at least shows me that pure evil is a real thing, and just like the villains in movies that take advantage of a hero who’s willing to spare them before they could kill them off, that you can’t expect pure evil to have a change of heart, and will likely do even more despicable acts of evil.

they are cowards, afraid to do what is right, convict trump. I also think some of them have been compromised in one way or another, and are afraid that their dirty laundry will be exposed by trump if they go against him, and that's why they are using the "it's unconstitutional" to convict him after he has left office. They hope by doing this trump will help them in 2022, but they are wrong.

No way is trump going to be "the nice guy" once this all and he gets acquitted, again. He is not on their side at all, and will do everyone he can to destroy the GOP party, and those republicans in the house and Senate who he thinks did not do enough to help him destroy our democracy, and then sit by while he destroys them as well!

Traitors, all. And judged by the 450,000 lost to COVID-19, they are psycho, too.
