Conversations With Randi B.: Impeachment, Gayle King & Bobby Love

What’s good, brethren? On this episode of Conversations with Randi B., Randi and I talk about Donald Trump‘s impeachment, Gayle King‘s questions to Lisa Leslie about Kobe Bryant and the Bobby Love story on Humans of New York. Check it out on Spotify below, fam. Let’s go!

We All Knew That Donald Trump Would Be Acquitted

So, I won’t lie, son. On the real, Donald Trump‘s impeachment trial led to an impasse between my wife and I. To be clear, we both agree that this dude is guilty as shit. However, she wanted to keep our TV glued to the news and I wanted nothing to do with the constant coverage. Why? Because we all knew how this story would end, man. Real talk, we ALL understood that the Senate would acquit him. With that being said, why is anyone acting surprised, fam?

Ok, for those who haven’t been paying attention to our future, Trump’s impeachment trial just came to its logical conclusion. Now, despite the fact that the entire Ukraine situation was hilariously inappropriate, I never believed that Trump would be convicted of anything. I mean, let’s keep it a buck, bruh. The Republicans have the majority vote in the Senate, son. So, why would they break rank and actually oust Trump? Like, through three years of Trump’s presidency, when has the GOP EVER stood up to him? Fam, we couldn’t even get most of them to admit that Trump’s “very fine people on both sides” line from Charlottesville was a bad fucking idea. In any case, there was NO way that the Democrats could secure 67 votes for a conviction, man.

Moving on, when it came to the two articles of impeachment, the vote was damn near unanimous along party lines. Look, when it came to the obstruction of Congress charge, the vote was 53-47, with neither party breaking rank. When it came to the abuse of power charge, the vote was 52-48, with Mitt Romney being the sole Republican to vote against Trump. Needless to say, his party is LIVID with him right now. Shit, how dare he make a logical decision when he’s supposed to remain blindly loyal to his party, bruh? All in all, I didn’t pay much attention to this process because I already knew how it would end, son. So, I simply never understood the point of all of this, man.

In the end, the Democrats just gave Trump a gift, fam. Ultimately, President Orange is going to use this acquittal as a talking point on the campaign trail. By and by, he’s going to claim “vindication,” despite the fact that the deciding body is mostly comprised of his constituents. All I know is, this impeachment was an ill-advised move from the beginning, bruh. On top of that, all of the Democratic hopefuls for president suck, son. So, I hope everyone is ready for four more years of Trump, man. At the end of the day, I’ve got my passport ready, brethren. Hell, it might be time to bounce up outta this bitch, folks. That is all. LC out.

Impeaching Trump Might Be A Bad Idea

So, I won’t lie, son. Real talk, when it comes to Donald Trump and impeachment, I have conflicting feelings, man. On one hand, I truly believe that something needs to be done about the reckless way he runs the presidency. However, given the Senate‘s history of sitting on their hands, I don’t see any action being taken, fam. With that being said, that’s why impeachment might be a mistake, bruh. The fact that the Senate won’t do shit, folks.

Ok, before I continue, let’s talk about Ukraine, son. Now, if we’re being honest, so much misinformation has been spread, man. Then again, what’s new, fam? In any case, this is what’s really going on. So, Trump, Rudy Giuliani and a gaggle of other fuck-tards have been trying to target Joe and Hunter Biden. As it stands, both Trump and Giuliani have had multiple conversations with Ukrainian officials about the Biden family. Essentially, the White House wants a foreign nation to do some digging on a couple of American citizens. All in all, Trump and company are convinced that the Biden’s are involved in corporate corruption.

In any case, Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky is what led to the whistleblower complaint. Basically, the whistleblower thought it was highly inappropriate for the president to ask for assistance against a political foe. Ever since then, Congress has been on fire, bruh. Shit, the House of Representatives is now setting up an impeachment inquiry and both Democrats and Republicans are trying to spin the story for their own respective narratives. The fact is, these are chaotic fucking times, son.

With all of that being said, these are the facts, man. First, the investigation into Burisma Holdings, the company that Hunter Biden is now a part of, began before Biden even joined the company. Meaning, they’re being investigated for crimes that may have occurred before Biden was in the picture. Second, former Ukrainian prosecutor Yuriy Lutsenko has already confirmed that there’s no evidence of illegality from Biden. So, the whole corruption narrative that Trump and Giuliani are trying to spin has no merit, fam.

Third, when did it become fucking cool for the Executive Branch to solicit help from outside countries against its own citizens? Hell, it’s barely being reported that Trump asked Australia to help William Barr investigate the origin of the Robert Mueller report. Seriously, no one seems to be talking about that, bruh. The truth is, the president of the United States spends a great deal of time working with other nations AGAINST the United States. Frankly, it’s fucking frightening, son.

Now, despite everything I’ve just written, impeaching Trump may still be a bad idea. Why? Because the Senate won’t do a cotdamn thing, man. On the real, no matter what that lunatic does, they sit idly by, fam. So, thanks to their inactivity, Trump is never reprimanded for his actions and he uses that to claim “vindication” for all of his fuckery. All I know is, when impeachment goes nowhere, it’s going to give Trump more ammunition to say “they tried to take me down and failed.” The way I see it, he’s going to have a grand ol’ time spinning these stories on the campaign trail, bruh.

In the end, this is what everyone needs to understand. Ultimately, as long as Trump has the Senate is his pocket, he’s untouchable. By and by, if they refuse to hold him accountable for anything he does, then he has no reason to behave differently. At the end of the day, the Senate has given Trump license to do whatever the fuck he wants, son. As long as that fact remains, all efforts to punish him will fail. It just is what it is, man. That is all. LC out.
