2 Political Junkies: Ok, State Sen. Mastriano

What say you to this:

For those out of touch (for one reason or anther) with the news this past weekend, Trump’s argument, it seems, is built on this:

It was billed as a bombshell: Elon Musk, after rifling through his new
company’s internal files, would finally expose how Twitter engaged in
“free speech suppression” in the critical run up to the 2020 election.

Too bad this is what happened:

But by the time the dust settled Saturday, even some conservatives were
grumbling that it was a dud. Musk’s Twitter Files produced no smoking
gun showing that the tech giant had bent to the will of Democrats.

The Washington Post had some more details:

The Twitter thread, based on internal communications posted by Substack
writer Matt Taibbi, showed the company independently decided to limit
the spread of the article, without Democratic politicians, the Biden
campaign or FBI exerting control over the social media network. In fact,
the only input from a sitting politician that Taibbi noted was from
Silicon Valley Rep. Ro Khanna (D), who told Twitter executives they
should distribute the story, regardless of the potential consequences
for his party.

And THAT’S what set off Trump and his MAGA-mob.

Too bad reality doesn’t mesh with their narrative.

Meanwhile our very own failed MAGA/QAnon/GOP candidate for PA Gov, State Senator Doug Mastriano tweeted this early this morning: 

Doug, despite with a PhD in History, failed to correct Woods: Nixon’s henchmen did a whole lot more than what Woods tweeted. There was that whole “breaking and entering” thing at the Watergate, for one.
Then there was the whole cover-up afterwards.

Isn’t that right, PhD Doug?

And Nixon himself was facing impeachment on a whole lot more; Obstruction of Justice, Abuse of Power, and Contempt of Congress.

Isn’t that right, Perfesser Duggie?

In case Doug pleads the 5th on those questions. The answer is “yes” on both.

This is the oath that State Senator Doug Mastriano took when he became State Senator:

I do solemnly swear that I will support, obey
and defend the Constitution of the United States and the
Constitution of this Commonwealth and that I will discharge the
duties of my office with fidelity.

And yet he sides with the guy who wants to terminate the Constitution because it stopped him from overturning the election he lost. 

He does not deserve to sit any longer in the Pennsylvania legislature. He should resign.

He won’t, of course. But he should.

What say you, Doug?
