We’ve been looking for the most melodramatic takes on the Senate’s 49-51 vote against calling witnesses to prop up the House’s “ironclad” case against President Trump, and there have been plenty; as we noted, both #RIPGOP and #RIPAmerica were trending Friday.
Bette Midler, who has a flair for the dramatic, says she’s heartbroken and the vote was like a death in the family — except instead of a loved one, it was the United States that died.
I am heartbroken. It’s like a death in the family. Only it’s a nation. https://t.co/YxJd7PWsEU

I hope not. It's so much fun to watch her implode.

It's like you're all on a plane and want to kill the pilot.
I'll never understand the hatred and disdain the left has towards….."everything" they don't agree with. Really sad state of affairs.

On impeachment Bette's hopes had relied —
So much so, when it failed, she cried.
She'd inflated her fears,
Couldn't see through the tears,
It was just her delusions that died. https://t.co/CqJ1Jjf4Tk

It's the death of a coup. Another failure from the left. Get used to it, there's plenty more to come.

Couldn’t stand the previous Constitution-shredding administration, but I somehow made it thru the 8 long years w/ out a daily tantrum.

But didn't the country already die from:
The election of Donald Trump?
The repeal of net neutrality?
Killing Iran's top terrorist?
Withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accord?
The appointment of Neil Gorsuch?
The appointment of Brett Kavanaugh?
