The Senate’s acquittal of Former President Donald Trump was described as “an incredible shock” by Andrew Jameson, noted in his community for “possessing the infantile optimism of a concussed puppy”.
Jameson, who has already made headlines multiple times over the past four years for his incredulity over events such as Donald Trump siding with white supremacists, Donald Trump claiming that the 2020 election was stolen, and Donald Trump causing a riot and the storming of the US Capitol, told The Toon Lampoon that he was “absolutely stunned” by the fact that 43 Republicans had voted to acquit the former president of charges of inciting an insurrection that claimed the lives of five people.
“I can’t believe it,” Jameson stated. “I’ve seen a lot in the last few years that’s taken me by surprise: Republicans installing Brett Kavanaugh as a Supreme Court Justice, Republicans installing Amy Coney Barrett as a Supreme Court Justice, Republicans voting to acquit Trump the last time he was impeached, Republicans backing Donald Trump when he claimed that the election was rigged. But this: this really is a tremendous shock.”
Jameson reportedly now plans to take a keen interest in the 2022 House and Senate elections, where he is confident that former Republican voters will show their disapproval of the politicians they had formerly supported following this acquittal vote and help the Democratic Party make greater gains in both chambers.
