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.

The best TN can do for a US Senator is this fake washed up Homeshopping Network “talent”
Seriously, what in the hell are you thinking?

Reading during the trial is incredibly disrespectful during the process. If you were a member of a regular 12-person jury you could be held in contempt for reading during the trial. Show a minimum of respect for your House colleagues and put the book away.

Shouldn’t you be paying attention to the impeachment trial?
It’s literally your job and also the most important thing you will ever do as a Senator.
