Let’s be real: this impeachment goes to the Senate for trial, Senate Republicans put a bullet in its head, and the country moves on with business. But still, we have CNN’s Jake Tapper claiming that the only thing people in the future will know about Donald Trump is that he was impeached — and had a lot of properties with his name on them, maybe. But the stain will outlast those buildings and maybe even survive climate change.
Now we have Newsweek columnist Seth Abramson picturing little children gathering around their grandparents 50 years from tonight and asking what it was like. Well, we know it was a letdown for the Impeachment Task Force’s Alyssa Milano, who was just sad and heartbroken.
Fifty years from now, if you're still alive and have grandkids, they'll ask what it was like the night the House of Representatives had to impeach a President of the United States for violating his Oath of Office, threatening U.S. national security, and undermining our democracy.

they emphatically will not
and if they do (and civilization is still somehow intact) I'll tell them about how very excited I was that the release embargo for CATS dropped

Son, I played some Death Stranding, with one earbud in to listen to Trump give a rally whipped up by the results, and I ate nutella with a plastic knife.

To be fair Seth has never actually met a child.

I’ll tell them about the new episode of Baby Yoda but without spoilers cause I’m a good dude in the future too.

Doubt it dude. The new fortnite update will probably make for a really good meta, with balanced weapons ans just keeping it simple no vehicles.

My dog ate much of a duraflame while I was at work so I spent part of the night on the phone with animal poison control and then spent some time looking through his poo.

They won't care because presidents will be impeached all the time and no one will care any longer.
— Jim Girouard (@JimGirouard132) December 19, 2019
no one will give the slightest quantum of a damn about this by the time Trump's two terms are over

This isn't a thing I'll do because I didn't waste time doing things like making a 900 tweet thread about it
— Arya Eshtehard آریا اشتهارد (@BadSunAK) December 19, 2019
I’m going to tell them about the dude who tweeted like 600 times in a row about a bunch of nothing.
— Ryan Smyth (@RyanSmyth7) December 19, 2019
To be fair, his thread on the Mueller report was only around 360 tweets long.
It will have no impact beyond the next fiscal quarter. Why would anyone care about it in 50 years? Unless he is removed from office – which we all know won’t happen- this will be forgotten about faster than the Mandalorian.

Please let us know as soon as they do that.

No they won’t. Kids literally don’t ask about that.
