MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell notest that if you totally ignore the Constitution, President Donald Trump was found guilty yesterday and removed from office:
The 48 Senators who found Trump GUILTY represent 18 million MORE people than the 52 who voted not guilty.

Former Clinton Treasury Secretary Robert Reich then agreed with his math and wept for our democracy:
True. Do the math.
And weep for our democracy. https://t.co/NQEgkBiQtm

Well, we’re doing the math and we want to see Lawrence’s work:
How is this counting AL, AZ, CO, ME, MT, OH, PA, UT and WI, where the two senators voted differently? https://t.co/PqNaOe3Woq

And how do you “weep for our democracy” while at the same time totally ignoring what’s in the Constitution?
And you’re point is….what, exactly. Because that’s now how this works. That’s not how any of this works. https://t.co/MXI75RXn3r

Ed Schultz was never this dumb:
Trump was impeached according to popular vote count. ?♂️
Ed Schultz would never have said anything so incredibly stupid. https://t.co/ejHNleYGvB

You know, they wrote it this way on purpose:
Thank god our founding fathers were smarter then you, Lawrence. https://t.co/GqI5J87SSZ

And we should point this out, too:
Beyond the fact that we are a constitutional republic, not a democracy, the reason this tweet is stupid is that it assumes every person represented by a senator supports that Senator's position, which obviously isn't true. There are more Republicans in California than Texas. https://t.co/gQVJU5sqYH

More math for Lawrence:
OK. 3/8 of California voted to not have a Democratic Senator. That means 14 million Californians have no Senator. https://t.co/16BgGb3kXP

Oh, and Trump is still president.
