Reporter Asks Trump What Lesson He Learned From His Impeachment, and His Response Is About as Trump as It Gets
It's been one week since President Donald Trump was acquitted by the Republican-dominated Senate on both articles of impeachment against him.

Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) claimed that impeachment taught Trump a lesson and that removal from office was too extreme.
Head of Conservative Conference Defends Disinviting Mitt Romney, Says He Fears for Romney's 'Physical Safety'

Donald Trump Jr. Just Accidentally Proved Democrats Right About Retaliation for Senators Who Vote Against Trump
Head House impeachment manager Adam Schiff (D-CA) made waves earlier this month while presenting his case against President Donald Trump.
Schiff cited a CBS report that Republican Senators were warned that their heads would be "on a pike" if any of them voted to convict the President.
Moderate Republican Senators were furious when Schiff mentioned the report on the Senate floor, quickly denying there had been any strong-arming or threats of retaliation if their votes didn't align with the rest of the Republican majority. Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) said of Schiff's comment, "That's where he lost me." Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) shouted "That's not true" from her seat.
Both eventually voted to acquit the President.
One day after President Donald Trump's 2020 State of the Union address, Senators took to the floor to announce their impending votes in the impeachment trial against him.
The proceedings were little more than a formality, with an acquittal of Donald Trump all but certain.
That doesn't mean it came without unexpected moments.

In the piece, Romney admitted to having a fake Twitter account meant for "lurking"—or viewing tweets while rarely or never actually tweeting.

Mitt Romney Blasts Trump With Apt Analogy After Trump Sends Pence and Pompeo to Meet Turkish President
President Donald Trump was warned by both sides of the aisle that abandoning our Kurdish allies in Northern Syria would pave the way for Turkey to commit atrocities and acts of war against the Syrian Kurds.
Nevertheless, Trump went through with his plan and sure enough, within days of U.S. withdrawal, Turkish forces moved in and now hundreds of Kurds are dead.
With the repeated attacks by President Donald Trump and his children against former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter, many in the GOP are making accusations of nepotism. Against the Bidens.
