Just watched, well listened to the whole thing. I have to say that this is the first time I've seen A-Team performance out of a Trump attorney. He got his money's worth. If he pays him.
I've been saying all along that the real issue about all this is that he can't "hold" the office of president. Even if he's on every ballot and wins the election. He is disqualified from holding the office of president because of his having engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the the Constitution that he swore to defend, and/or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof.
"I, Donald John Trump, do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States. So help me God"
That is the oath that he swore.
14th, S3: No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.
He swore that oath to which section 3 of the 14th refers and he clearly broke in many many ways involving the Trump Insurrection.
For example, there are those among us who will argue that Donald Trump did not violate his oath by sitting on his tiny orange hands as he watched the Capitol being attacked live on TV by the very people he moments before had riled up and sent there.
The very physical seat of our Constitution that he swore to preserve, protect, and defend was under literal and violent attack, and he was the sitting president of the United States, with a fully operable telephone...
...But some among us want us to believe that doing absolutely nothing should be considered as him legitimately acting to the best of his (or any sitting president's) broad and powerful presidential abilities to stop an insurrection against our Constitution and seat of government and democracy from happening before his treasonous eyes... That he was not giving aid and comfort to the enemies of our Constitution, who were in the act of attacking it, by his deafening silence and absolute and total inaction in stopping them... And then finally telling them to go home and that he loved them. He of course didn't mean them to infer any comfort was being given to them by his proclamation of love for them. Of course.
There are those among us who want us all to believe them, and not the evidence our own eyes.
Anyway, Trump will probably appear on the Colorado ballot. And as I said, it's not the real issue anyways.
The Supremes hearing his immunity case is the playoff game I'm really gonna be watching. Trump's clock is going to be surgically sterile by the end of that one.
