President Biden won’t have time to watch his predecessor’s second impeachment trial as it begins today, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told us Monday.
Unlike the last president who spent more time in front of his TV than he did on his golf courses, Biden will continue to busy himself with our needs. His schedule this week includes visits to the National Institutes of Health and the Department of Defense, as well as “engaging with business leaders, mayors and governors, and of course continuing to make the case and have conversations with Democrats and Republicans directly about his hopes and plans for the American Rescue Plan moving forward as quickly as possible,” Psaki said.
That’s not to say Donald Trump’s second impeachment trial is not important. It’s vitally important. And Americans know it. A new ABC News/Ipsos poll found 56% of Americans want the Senate to convict Trump of inciting insurrection and bar him from future office; 43% are opposed.
