I mean speeches by people that are forced out of office against their will are usually pretty weird

does anyone remember that post from the 2016 election thread (RIP) where someone was describing what they heard on NPR on their way to work that day, and it was about a really heinous trump lie about something, and the host of the show said something like, "to be clear, we don't know exactly what was in his head at the time, so there's no way to know if he was lying"

There are tons of ways that you can frame this other than "did Democrats just give Republicans a seat?" especially considering that's a) not accurate and b) it's not particularly objective (which is supposedly their standard above all else)

"a possible takeover opportunity" is a lot different than "a seat" though

yeah framing this as "you're next" is the best way to connect this to trump and i hope liberals start using that instead of just complaining about double standards.
