Oh, what a difference 21 years and a million Fox News lies make.
Here was President Bill Clinton following his acquittal on charges of fibbing about a blow job:
February 12, 1999 Ã¢ÂÂ President Bill Clinton following acquittal by the Senate: “I want to say again to the American people how profoundly sorry I am for what I said and did to trigger these events and the great burden they have imposed on the Congress and on the American people.” pic.twitter.com/ZfnL4CkxHs

PRESIDENT CLINTON: “Now that the Senate has fulfilled its constitutional responsibility, bringing this process to a conclusion, I want to say again to the American people how profoundly sorry I am for what I said and did to trigger these events and the great burden they have imposed on the Congress and on the American people. I also am humbled and very grateful for the support and the prayers I have received from millions of Americans over this past year. Now I ask all Americans — and I hope all Americans here in Washington and throughout our land will rededicate ourselves to the work of serving our nation and building our future together. This can be and this must be a time of reconciliation and renewal for America. Thank you very much.”
And here’s multiply accused alleged rapist and sexual assaulter Pr*sident Trump today, just before his acquittal for bribing a foreign country with taxpayer money in order to cheat in our upcoming election.

Did anyone expect anything different?
Donald Trump is incapable of learning from his mistakes, because he can’t recognize or acknowledge them. He’s incapable of self-reflection. Incapable of moral refinement. Incapable of personal growth (unless you mean the literal growth of his person).
The only message he’s taken from this sad chapter in American history is that he can now do whatever he wants and his amoral horde of Uruk-hai orcs will have his back, without so much as flinching.
Day One of the imperial presidency begins the second Trump’s acquittal is ratified.
It’s only a matter of time before Trump trades the nuclear football for a McRib sandwich. If he’s hungry, why wouldn’t he? There are no consequences for anything he does anymore.
January 31, 2020, will go down in history as the day the U.K. left the EU and America left its senses. And I fear both decisions are irrevocable. Hopefully I can be proven wrong.
Hey, YOU can survive Trump and keep your sanity! Dear F*cking Lunatic: 101 Obscenely Rude Letters to Donald Trump by Aldous J. Pennyfarthing is now available at Amazon. Get it there, along with its super-fun sequels Dear Pr*sident A**clown: 101 More Rude Letters to Donald Trump and Dear F*cking Moron: 101 More Letters to Donald Trump. Reviewers have called these books “hysterically funny,” “cathartic,” and “laugh-out-loud” comic relief.
