What’s to say about the impeachment vote from an Arkansas angle? The Republicans from Arkansas voted against impeachment as expected and issued fact-free statements in defense of Trump’s extortion of Ukraine and obstruction of justice. Arkansas Democrats touted their alternatives in three of the four congressional districts.

Odds are that the majority of Arkansas voters stand with Trump. But I’d like them to stop thinking political tribalism for once and consider the general depravity of Trump. He’s unchallenged for the Keith Olbermann title of worst person in the world. Consider: Pussy grabbing, serial lying, business cheating, off-the-charts narcissism and, as again evidenced yesterday, classless cruelty, whether directed toward war heroes, children, fugitives from terrorism or political opponents. Consider his repeated slams on U.S. Rep. John Dingell and his widow, now in Congress.
Trump laments that Debbie Dingell voted to impeach him despite the fact that he allowed the normal state funeral to proceed for her late husband, former Rep. John Dingell. Trump then suggests John Dingell is in hell — to audible groans. pic.twitter.com/wsYfddNIA9

How can you cast a ballot for such a poor excuse for a human being?
UPDATE: U.S. Rep. French Hill issued a brief statement urging Trump to apologize to Rep. Dingell. But he couldn’t do that without first commenting on the “House’s madness.” He succeeded in getting a lot of media attention for mildly chiding Trump, once out of the hundreds of crude and abusive things Trump has said the last three years. Trump himself offered no apology and dodged questions from reporters asking if he would.
