Once we had infrastructure week. Then impeachment week, then insurrection week, and now, the last full week of Trump’s term in office — ie, impeachment week, part 2. See the highlights and lowlights on @SHO_TheCircus, Sunday at 8pm, only on @showtime.

One hour until tonight’s all-new episode of @sho_thecircus — “Clear And Present Danger” — so get settled and join us on @showtime at 8pm.

Given the events of Jan 6, @showtime has made our S6 premiere, which aired last Sunday, available on YouTube. So if you’re not a subscriber, here’s a chance to check out @SHO_TheCircus at its best—then sign up in time to see our all-new ep tonight at 8pm.

DJT Impeachment #2 was a slam dunk, no thanks to Trump ass-kissers, as @therickwilson put it. And @NHJennifer sees a potential shitstorm swirling in the Oval. These reflections, projections, and more this week on #HHW with @projectlincoln. Get after it:

.@jheil brought cameras to the Capitol and said it was 'heartbreaking' to see the insurrection up close. #LSSC

And it remains heartbreaking — maybe even more so — 10 days later. @SHO_TheCircus

Quoted @therecount

Will a 50-50 Senate foster bipartisanship? @AJentleson thinks not: Mitch McConnell still has a lot of sway — and a singular focus on reclaiming the majority in 2022.

In this @SHO_TheCircus extra, Jentleson and @jheil discuss how Biden should handle the power-hungry GOP leader:

Why is @ajentleson betting on obstructionism from McConnell? Because that was the play he ran against Obama — and Republicans were rewarded for it.

.@jheil is worried that political violence might become a routine thing in our lives. #LSSC

Tragically, yes.

Michigan @RepDebDingell was in the House chamber when insurrectionists stormed the Capitol. She’s here to say: Violent right-wing extremism existed long before Jan 6.

On this @SHO_TheCircus extra, Dingell tells @jheil how it feels to be the target of Trump’s “hate machine.”

This is a spectacular statement. Read every word.

Spectacular, and pretty damn gutsy for a House freshman.
