Biden says ‘we have to move on’ from Trump impeachment trial

Democrats impeaching former President Donald Trump have described the effort as a matter of existential importance to democracy — but President Joe Biden apparently forgot to read his index cards.

The president acknowledged Thursday that America has more important business than the desperate effort against his former election rival, saying, “We all know we have to move on.”

Biden admits America has to “move on”

The president has mostly kept his distance from the impeachment, although he supports the effort, saying last week it would be “farcical” not to hold a trial, as ABC News noted. Still, he seemed to concede the futility of the effort at the White House on Thursday, where he was meeting with senators to talk infrastructure.

Biden said he had not had a chance to watch carefully since he’s been hard at work for the American people, and pointed to the threat of China, saying the country will “eat our lunch” if America does not invest in infrastructure, according to Fox Business. He said the exact opposite about China in 2019.

“I told you, I’m focused on my job…to deal with the promises I made and we all know we have to move on,” the president said Thursday, according to Breitbart. “Today it’s about jobs and infrastructure.”

Biden went on: “I think the Senate has a very important job to complete and I think my guess is some minds may be changed, but I don’t know.”

Trial wrapping up

On Friday, Trump’s lawyers presented a brief defense argument after Democrats spent two days building a dramatic case that the former president had caused an “insurrection” at the Capitol with his rhetoric, and by claiming the election was rigged weeks before.

Trump’s lawyers argued that the then-commander-in-chief did not provoke the riot and alleged a double standard, pointing to Democrats who inflamed violence this summer and objected to Trump’s election victory in 2016.

“This is about canceling 75 million Trump voters,” lawyer Bruce Castor said, according to The Hill. “It asks for constitutional cancel culture to take over.”

Biden “anxious” for outcome

Trump is expected to prevail in the trial, which will likely end this weekend.

Biden, sporting an aviator jacket, came out on the White House lawn Friday morning, where he said that he hoped Republicans would “stand up” and convict the former president, the Daily Mail reported. The lawn was adorned with heart-shaped signs with words like “healing” and “unity” on them.

“I’m just anxious to see what my Republican friends do. If they stand up,” the president said.

  12. We are in this problem because the Republicans refuse to stand together on anything. While we sit back and watch the dumbocrats stick together on foolishness like an illegal impeachment the political correct rinos act like dumbocrats.

    1. I agree. Most the the establishment Republicans are gutless. They need to fight fire with fire, but instead choose to do nothing. They need to go after the Democratic (Communist) party and take them down. Let’s stay on them for their dirty deeds against President Trump, and hound the crap out of them on a daily basis like they did. to Trump!

  15. The criminal organization DNC and Quid-Pro-Joe, can run this Country, they can run into the ground! Nobody outside of lunatic fringe Democrat states would hire any of those Congressional Democrats!

  16. Obama, Soros, Holder, Kerry, Clinton, Schiff, Jarrett, Ayers, Dorn, and that Chicago Anarchist city need to be shut down, in prison, or worse!
