It is with a heavy heart that Democratic Rep. Joe Kennedy III votes to impeach Donald Trump, but he’s doing it for the children. His children, to be specific.
Instead of the usual self-aggrandizing Democratic shpiel, Kennedy decided to frame his “yes” vote as a letter to his kids:
Dem. Rep. Joe Kennedy addresses his children in remarks on impeachment: "Dear Ellie and James: This is a moment that you'll read about in your history books. Today, I will vote to impeach the president of the United States. And I want you to know why." https://t.co/YXG96ICVqo pic.twitter.com/S3Sd39n5uV

So he’s doing this to get into the history books. A worthy cause, to be sure.

GP "I do this not out of pride, but in carrying out the finest Kennedy tradition of dipshittery like making waitress sammiches like Uncle Ted or being arrogant and stupid and flying a plane upside down into the Atlantic or being a pro-Nazi stooge like our patriarch." https://t.co/20SGIyCMej
