Screenshot from C-SPAN 2

The House impeachment managers opening video, presented by Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD), must have been hard for the Senate to watch. But it was vital, with up-close and personal clips, it demonstrated just how crucial Donald Trump's words were to the insurrection on Jan. 6. In fact, everyone should watch it.

"Take the Capitol," his supporters in the large and mostly maskless crowd roared, as Trump spewed lies about the election and told his supporters to make their way to the Capitol building at his "Stop the Steal" rally.

The video shows undeniable evidence of Trump inciting the deadly attack on democracy. Let's hope Senate Republicans keep this video in the back of their minds.

Watch it here.

Postcards from the great American labor shortage: A couple arrives at the Seattle airport after a five-hour flight and stands in line at the car rental desk. People are angry. At the desk sits a harassed employee explaining that he simply has no cars of any kind to rent. Nothing. Why? There aren't enough employees on hand to vacuum, wash, fuel and process the cars.

Another snapshot. A couple has been driving for several hours and requires a bathroom stop. They pull into a Burger King. The doors are locked. The only service is at the drive-thru. Why? Lack of employees.
