(NewsReady.com) – The Senate acquitted former President Donald Trump for the second time on February 13. After he was cleared, Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) came out and said the 45th POTUS was to blame for the Capitol Hill incident on January 6. But, he called the impeachment process unconstitutional because Trump isn’t in office any longer. Later the evening, President Joe Biden jumped into the fray.
Biden said he agreed with McConnell that the “substance of the charge is not in dispute.” He, too, believes Trump was at fault for the incident, even though there’s no proof. The president quoted the minority leader, calling his predecessor’s actions a “disgraceful dereliction of duty.”

The president finished his ranting statement by saying the country needs to end the “uncivil war” it’s engaged in. How exactly that’s going to happen when Democrats continually attack the GOP and its voters is unclear. The GOP is not going to just take their abuse lying down. If Biden wants unity, he might want to start by treating Trump with some respect.
