A Lighthearted Teaching Moment (Vid of the Day)

ASIDE: Our Vid of the Day features an historic scene from yesterday’s Impeachment proceedings. That said, let’s bang this blog’s opening gavel…

Indeed, it is both dismaying and disconcerting to witness any apparent grown up, who is either unwilling or unable to grasp something so elementary as the relationship between Cause and Effect.

Alas, such is the case with the puerile, 55 year-old, U.S. House Representative Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), who earned a master’s degree in education from Ohio State University, no less, YET still fails to recognize that the Cause of Donald Trump’s impeachment predicament is none other than Donald Trump, himself.

Instead, Jordan actually believes the Cause to be the very whistle-blower who justifiably and patriotically reported Trump’s quid pro quo, perfectly wrong, “perfect phone conversation” with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky.

While yesterday’s impeachment proceedings showcased hours upon hours of staggering, rightwing group-ignorance, it took less than one minute for the genuinely grownup (72 year-old) U.S. Representative Peter Welch (D- Vermont) to provide Jordan some MUCH NEEDED and LONG OVERDUE tutelage.

One can only hope Welch’s lighthearted, one-liner lecture can serve as enlightenment for Jordan… as well as for any other intellectually challenged, rightwing congressperson… be (s)he a Representative or Senator.
