Former MythBusters star Adam Savage went on a vitriolic rant against the GOP senators who effectively ended the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump by shutting down approval for additional witnesses.
He called them numerous names and wished that all but one of their teeth fall out, with a toothache in the last one.
“GOP” members of the Senate, you unconscionable, pathetic, spineless, hypocritical, lickspittle, death rattle of a racist patriarchal Calvinist s***bags. May all your teeth fall out but one. And in that one may you have a toothache. Enjoy how history looks at you. It’s not pretty,” he tweeted.
The responses were overwhelming by conservatives on Twitter.
“How many times have we been through this during the Trump presidency where people have complete and utter freak outs over things no one is going to remember a month later?” The Babylon Bee’s Frank Fleming replied to Savage.
The impeachment trial is expected to end on Wednesday, as both Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Minority Leader Chuck Schumer have come to an agreement on the official acquittal vote.
Other Democrats were incensed with the decision to end the impeachment process so quickly, with Maxine Waters issuing comments similar to Savage — but less vile.
“I’ve never seen a more insufferable & pathetic group of Senators than those in the GOP,” Waters tweeted. “They’ve chosen to strap themselves to a corrupt con man they KNOW is guilty. They’re all cowards. None of them belong in the Senate. They should go home and grow a backbone!”
