WASHINGTON D.C. (WTNH) — President Trump brushed off Wednesday’s historic impeachment vote at a campaign rally in Michigan.
After casting the biggest vote of her political career, freshman Congresswoman Jahana Hayes made an appeal on Twitter for prayers and understanding. Senator Murphy is backing a call for witnesses. And Senator Blumenthal says he’s speaking with his republican colleagues about what comes next.
We’ve talked a lot about the lack of civility in politics during the Trump era. Case-in-point: a Republican running for U.S. Congress in Connecticut’s 5th district named Robert Hyde.
Hyde posted a sexist and lewd comment about Senator Kamala Harris dropping out of the Presidential race. It doesn’t even bear repeating.
High-ranking members of his own party urging Hyde to get out of the race. But Hyde’s not backing down.
On Twitter he doubled-down, defending the post and asking ‘Do you think I’ll ever quit?’
