Emil Amok: The “Big Lie” Sustained. GOP fails America as ex-President Trump acquitted.

A majority of the Senate voted “Guilty,” 57-43, but a 2/3rds vote is required. Hence, the GOP fails the country and Trump goes free.

Prof. Dan Gonzales SF State University/Asian American Studies/College of Ethnic Studies joins me. We talk about the trial; the disappointing finish to have just 7 Republicans join to convict; the frustration level among truth seekers when Congress can’t agree to convict. Plus we talk about Lunar New Year and the rash of hate crimes against Asian Americans in the Bay Area. It’s a conversation about the news from a Filipino American/Asian American lens. No one talks about us otherwise.
