As we experience the embarrassing and potentially dangerous final days of Trump’s tenure we can be cautiously thankful as well.
It now appears to a substantial voter majority of Americans that the “Two Elects” are two honorable competent experienced public servants who have every motivation to behave with integrity and candor as the example of the behavior of the departing incumbent offers all of us such a contrary lesson.
Bet they are quietly hoping Trump won’t show at their inauguration January 20th.
More important and sad is the failure of integrity of the key leadership of the Republican Party. I am sure it frightens many of us who can hardly believe such Republican obedience to Trump, clearly not willing to challenge his outrageous behavior.
My belief in the immense value of a strong two party system remains, but I will need to see the emergence of Republican men and women demonstrating strong non-Trumpian traits before they get my votes again!
I was guessing Trump would not veto the 900 billion aid bill, but if Trump had the results as reported by CNN would have been unacceptable to any thinking person.
Though Congress has passed a $900 billion Covid relief package, millions of Americans are in danger of losing important benefits just after the holidays if President Trump continues to refuse to sign the bill https://t.co/9hfOpX3luO

A Veto would likely have so disgusted Republicans in Georgia to the extent that their two Republican candidates would lose!
Their candidates may lose anyway as Trump’s exit behavior has gotten so bizarre as to likely have had minor effect on the voters in a tight race willing to vote knee jerk Republican!
If both Republican candidates lose, Mitch McConnell loses his Majority Leader’s job!
A real toss up situation now and I am guessing regardless of his final actions Trump has proved to enough Americans that his days of genuine political power are now going to be behind him.
And Trump now gets his first veto override on the Defense Appropriation bill!
Wonder how many of the 74 million who voted for Trump on November 3rd are now regretful and, yes, ashamed?
