Democrats control the White House. Democrats control the House of Representatives. Democrats (just barely) control the Senate. But America is looking at Republicans.
That’s not unique to this week, in which former President Donald Trump’s second impeachment trial begins. The last month has seen a transition of power to the Democratic Party in two of three branches of government, but our attention hasn’t necessarily transferred along with it. The GOP is confused and chaotic, and America evidently loves to see it.
I mean that with the full memetic versatility of the phrase: Some people are watching the post-Trump turmoil with relish insofar as it means ineffectual policymaking for Republicans and more wins for Democrats.
