If Trump is convicted, how will you celebrate?

I will yell with joy so hard, all nearby Magas will hear me. I will then give the cat some Temptations and ask my wife where she wants to go to raise a toast to Trump's time behind bars.

And then demand action with the other 3 trials.

No time for celebrating just yet. We still have a presidential nominee who is literally an insurrectionist. He tried to get black votes tossed all over the country. Each and every American should be so embarrassed and humiliated right now. What type of country can't sort out a fucking coup plot before letting the same criminal run again?

I don't think the wheels of justice will turn quickly enough to see that before the election.

On the other hand, the first to have "Don the Con" bumper stickers, with his mug shot on them, printed up, distributed, and ready for sale nationwide the moment a guilty verdict is rendered, will be the Bill Gates of the political paraphernalia world.

all the R/W media, slamming Biden for a hoax to steal the election and suing everyone possible. Trump could literarly move to a ten point lead. You sure there isn't reason to celebrate

His conviction will be anticlimactic.

...there's some sign of polling impact.

I'll be very worried if a conviction doesn't move the needle noticeably.

Because, convicted or not, he’s still looming over this country and for all that we’ve stood. He still has a good chance to win this election and destroy everything.

I can’t celebrate anything until he’s defeated. That’s the only thing that matters.

"and I hope that you die,
and your death will come soon.
I'll follow your casket
By the pale afternoon
and I'll watch while you're lowered
Down to your deathbed
And I'll stand over your grave
'Til I'm sure that your dead"

I always feel a little guilty wishing for a person's death, even with Trump. I do think it would be a net good for our country though if he did die.
