At this point I'm rarely shocked by anything Donald Trump does or says.
But today's televised hearing of the House committee investigating the January 6, 2021 insurrection at the Capitol moved me deeply, because what Trump did to two Georgia election workers -- Shaye Moss and her mother Ruby Freeman -- was so horrible even by Trumpian standards.
He and his lying accomplice, Rudy Giuliani, destroyed the lives of Moss and Freeman by falsely accusing them of falsifying many thousands of ballots for Joe Biden.
It was infuriating to listen to Moss and Freeman talk about their lives being turned inside down by Trump and Giuliani. (Moss testified in person today; the committee showed videos of Freeman's previous testimony .)
These are honest hardworking women who believed strongly in helping people vote. Trump doesn't possess even 1% of the integrity and morality of Moss and Freeman. Yet so far he hasn't been indicted for his election-related crimes.
Hopefully Trump will be held to account for his misdeeds, especially since there's every indication he and his Republican cronies plan to try to steal the next presidential election if Trump runs again. And maybe even if he doesn't run.
Because a majority of Republicans, one poll had it at 70%, believe Trump's lie that he won the 2020 presidential election because of some mysterious voter fraud that lacks any evidence but supposedly occurred because Trump says so.
It's a national embarrassment that one of our two major political parties has gone so far down the election fraud rabbit hole. How anyone can vote for Republican candidates is beyond me.
