Simple statements of facts.  I suppose liars consider that trolling.

Yeah was going to say, hardly Trolling, its shoving the truth in the faces of everyone concerned.

If the same level of directness is applied in the trial then Trump and the Rs are in for a very very uncomfortable few days.

Not that I think the corrupt R coonts will do the right thing.

Good job. This is how you grass roots. Take notes Lincoln project.

I agree that this morphs the definition of trolling. Poking at somebody by telling the truth isn't trolling.
It sucks to screw up the meaning of a word this way.

Closest you can get without actually being on the capitol grounds.  Pretty sure they couldn't get a permit for it actually on the capitol grounds themselves.

I can't imagine you're getting anywhere the fark close with a vehicle like that - no matter what the hell it's for, barring official gov or cop transpo or specifically inspected and cleared absolutely necessary whatever

I expect the Lincoln Project to do something far better and more newsworthy. They have been great at this sort of thing, and this really seems like their moment to do something.

Not at all. Imagine if the Senate impeached and then the DOJ never prosecuted.

"Convicted" would be the word you're looking for.

How the DOJ not prosecuting after a successful conviction "taking their cue in the name of unity"?

It's a perspective thing. The Capitol dome is only 9 feet high.

You're missing the point. It's not "in front of the Senate." It's not in Cruz or Hawley's face. It's a sad little sign tourists would walk by, if there still were any tourists.

This is a grift, and a weaksauce grift at that.

No.... Like I said in the first place, I wonder if the DOJ will take its cue from the Senate in the name of unity. Because either way it goes, if one body convicts Trump and the other doesn't, Trump's base is going to be screaming bloody murder about it, about how either the Democrats are vengeful political partisans or the DOJ is Biden's personal instrument of vengeance. If both agree, then they're still going to scream either way, but at least there is consistency and some of the more rational ones in Trump's base will admit that insurrection is a bad thing. Or that the entire thing was lies and Trump is pure - and Biden's DOJ agreed because it wouldn't prosecute or convict.

Trump's base is going to go apeshiat regardless of what happens. And be prepared for disappointment from political processes that require a 2/3 vote.

Yes, but it's still "outside the senate" in much the same way that my house is also "outside the senate"...

I know that the original Grammar Rock songwriter and the original main vocalist for the original of this song are both still alive, albeit on up in years. If Meidas Touch or Lincoln Project or maybe Colbert could get in touch with first the songwriter and make sure she's not a Trumpkin and would approve, and if the vocalist is likewise (otherwise find someone who can mimic her voice well), then this should be animated in the Schoolhouse Rock style and used on a display like that and as a cold open for Colbert or some such:
