GOP Senator Reads Trump Cultist’s Book During Trial

Is a book by a Trump cultist better than a fidget spinner?

Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) said she read a book during the third day of proceedings of President Trump’s impeachment trial in the upper chamber on Thursday.

“First – I’m reading Resistance (At All Costs) by Kim Strassel. Read the chapter on obstruction. It provides good insights into today’s proceedings,” she tweeted Thursday afternoon. “Second – busy mamas are the best at multi-tasking. Try it,” she continued.

Her comments came in response to another tweet shared by conservative columnist Jennifer Rubin, who is a contributor for The Washington Post, calling reports of Blackburn’s actions “shameful.”

Kimberly Strassel is a pro-Trump opinion columnist for Rupert Murdoch’s Wall Street Journal. Senators are allowed to have reading material as long as it relates to the trial. Blackburn thinks she’s being slick.
