Where’s Cory? Right Next to Team Trump

As multiple news outlets have reported, Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Yuma) is widely expected to follow along with the wishes of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and President Trump’s scurrilous legal team on all issues related to Trump’s impeachment trial underway in the U.S. Senate.

Lest there be any doubt, check out where Gardner has been seated today: He literally could not be any closer in proximity to Trump’s legal team. Gardner’s typical seat in the Senate chambers is at the back of the room; Gardner is instead squatting in the seat reserved for Oklahoma Republican Sen. Jim Inhofe.

  1. The realist says:

    Cory is incapable of being any better than he is. He's afraid of the voters, but he's more afraid of #Trump. I'm never surprised by his failures to serve, but that doesn't make me any less angry.

    “Oh surely that’s just where he’s supposed to be sitting…” was my first thought.

    But of course not. He can’t even get assigned seating right.
