Yes, people identify with it, but no, unlike the Proud Boys, it’s not some organized entity.
You mean I shouldn't trust Matt Gaetz' expertise on that?

Trump called into the Florida RNC breakfast this morning and was greeted with cheers and applause

Literally giving their two weeks notice.

Are they resigning so they don't have to make the tough choice of 25th?

Articles of Impeachment are being passed around. Believed to have at least 100 signatures. Congress needs to open back up.

Remove this man before he does something extremely horrible.

These MAGAs are always going to be a threat. Ignoring what happened, or worse, praying it goes away, will not work. Follow the law, and if these terrorists want to act out, be prepared and take the necessary steps under the law to see they can't do it again.

If America is "wounded" right now, then we need the puss to come out to truly heal.

They’re resigning now because if in response to this event they do not disavow the administration they can kiss their political future outside of trumpism goodbye if he is impeached again or 25th’d. If Trump is removed he cannot run again, and I think it’s safe to say that anyone who goes down with his ship is in the same circumstance. Hence why Pence might actually consider the 25th... if anything from here on out happens like a repeat of yesterday, it’s game over for Pence’s political future. He isn’t Teflon Don - none of them are.

And by resigning they don't have to vote on the 25th - which suits them politically.

45% of registered Republican voters and 21% Independents, along with 2% of registered Democrats in this poll watched TV and thought, "Yup, good on you!"

US Politics XXXII: Cancel my subscription to the insurrection

I am deeply skeptical about Congress being able to impeach.

One, the House had to conduct an investigation and the Senate had a week long trial last time, and there probably isn’t time to do those things in two weeks. Is Congress allowed to just say “fuck all that, let’s just vote”?

Two, you need 2/3 - 66 votes - in the Senate to remove him. Right now - Warnock and Ossoff are not seated yet - we have 48 Democratic votes. Are there going to be 18 GOP Senators willing to make that vote?

The 25th seems more likely.

It forces the Republican hands a bit, though. In the House, they would need to put their position on record. McConnell could choose not to bring the matter to the floor, but that in itself would be politically costly.

Impeachment will make every one of those silent senators show their cards.
