The man might want to brush up on his history and ask himself some hard questions about party affiliation.
Voting for Obama wasn’t enough to turn the page on our nation’s historical sins. The bloodiest war in history fought to overthrow it wasn’t enough either. Now, we have to impeach Trump, too?
The same guy who bitched and moaned that all the witnesses called to testify against his hated foe during the Impeachment circus were too white accidentally let slip the word ‘celebrated’ when he talked about writing the articles of impeachment.
He quickly corrected himself, when he remembered it’s supposed to be serious and solemn.
“So, I know that you introduced one of those first impeachment resolutions against Trump, and let’s look at how that went down,” the MSNBC host said. “It actually lost 364-58. How do you think this process ends if more evidence is revealed, and are you concerned at all that Americans are having a waning interest as this process drags on?”
“Well, it was yesterday in fact that we celebrated in a sense that we had something that was brought to the floor, maybe I shouldn’t say celebrated. Let me just say that we brought to the floor the articles for vote and we received some 50-plus votes and then the second time some 60 plus and a third time 95 votes,” Green responded. “So, I believe that the American people understand that this is something that we must do at this point. I don’t speak for all of the American people, but a majority seem to think so, and I think that we’re moving forward in a very cautious and prudent way, which is what is expected, but I also think that if we don’t include some of the things that are important to people of color then I think that our business won’t be finished with.”
“I do believe, ma’am, that we have to deal with the original sin,” Green continued. “We have to deal with slavery. Slavery was the thing that put all of what President Trump has done lately into motion. It’s insidious … racism, the president has played on racism and he’s used that as a weapon to galvanize a base of support to mobilize people.”
