You broke it, you own it

  2. Senator John Kennedy — Because of your incessant need for media coverage, you own this.
  3. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy — You are the least qualified individual in Congress, and possess zero leadership skills, and you own this.
  4. Former (Heh, Heh) Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell — You wouldn’t work with Barack Obama during the Great Recession, and then turned a blind eye to the horrors of Donald Trump for your own political expediency, and now you own this.
  5. Congresswoman Elise Stefanik — There was a chance to dump Trump back in February, and you decided to defend him for your own egotistical and traitorous needs, and you own this. #EliseStefanikisaTraitor.

  7. Former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan — It took you five years to find your balls, and you own this.
  8. Senator Susan Collins — You said that Trump would learn a lesson after the impeachment so you didn’t vote to convict, and you own this. Oh, um, Susan. Do you think he learned his lesson?
  9. Vice President Mike Pence — You are a groveling kiss-ass, and you have done perhaps more than anybody to enable this president and this riot, and you own this.
  10. First Lady of the United States Melania Trump — You had sex with him at least once, so you’re just gross, and you own this.
  11. Congressman Matt Gaetz — You’re a tool and and a drunk driver, and the biggest defender of the “Orange Menace” in all of Congress, and you own this.
  12. Mark Meadows White House Chief of Staff — You were a member of the so-called “Freedom Caucus” and a “Tea Party” member, and in a way, you are as guilty of this nonsense as anybody, and you own this.

  19. Congressman Jim “Gym” Jordan — It was bad enough when you turned a blind eye to the sexual abuse that went on right in front of you at Ohio State, but you are complicit in this attempt to destroy democracy, and you own this.
  20. Donald Trump — This is what you wanted when you claimed without evidence that the election was rigged, that there were good people on both sides in Chancellorsville, when you told the “Proud Boys” to “Stand back and stand by,” and so many more examples of heinous behavior that we wouldn’t tolerate from a 3rd world dictator, you own all of this, and the sad part is, you’re enjoying it.
