Trump’s trampling on democracy

“I’m sitting here for the past few days thinking about the incalculable damage that one man—Donald Trump—has done to this country and to our political system. And I’m wondering if you, like me, have thought back to Adam Schiff’s summation during the impeachment proceedings—when he talked about why Donald Trump had to be impeached, and he raised the question of the Republicans wondering, you know, ‘how much damage could he do?’ And Schiff ended his summation by saying ‘a lot.’ And in my mind harkening back to those words then to today, and what is playing out right in front of the world, I don’t think ‘a lot’ really handles the scope of the damage that Donald Trump has done,” says veteran columnist Mike Barnicle to Washington Post associate editor Eugene Robinson during this Morning Joe conversation about the significant harm President Donald Trump and Republican lawmakers have inflicted upon the country as they have actively refused to accept the results of the 2020 election.
