We’re back at it again with this week’s Morning Brew. It was the first weekend since the National Football League season ended. Joel Embiid is making a strong case for league MVP. The Sixers are looking strong to start the season, despite their two-game losing streak. The second impeachment hearings of former President Trump ended the same way the first one ended. This and so much more is covered this week, so without further delay – let’s hit you with that Brew that you’ve been craving.
The Sixers lost their second game in a row on Saturday

Joel Embiid is making his case for league MVP
Two-way dominance. Consistency. The stats. The team success. (And the biggest threats.)

Carson Wentz is still currently an Eagle and the debate about him continues
It’s very interesting to me that the #Eagles view Carson Wentz as Matthew Stafford in that trade as opposed to Jared Goff in that trade..
It feels like Carson Wentz is much more like Goff than he is like Stafford @GetUpESPN pic.twitter.com/PPVMDkLK91

And the Wentz rumors continue to swirl
Report: The #Colts have offered “two 2nd-round draft picks” for #Eagles QB Carson Wentz, per @JawsCEOQB via @JeffSkversky
That is the best offer the #Eagles have received – No first round pick offer for Wentz.pic.twitter.com/9ZGuiXI1nH

Donald Trump was acquitted in his Impeachment trial … again
The verdict in Donald Trump’s second impeachment trial is certain to influence the former president’s political future and that of the senators who acquitted him. Seven Republicans joined all Democrats to convict, 10 short of the 67 needed to convict him. https://t.co/0W2xrAemwl

Democrats go soft when it mattered the most
After fighting for witness testimony, Democrats have caved and Trump’s #ImpeachmentTrial will end without it. Baffling. pic.twitter.com/swgu1MCHyd

No wonder so many people hate politics
If this @nytimes story is right, and the House dropped the witness demand because the Republicans in Senate threatened to block all nominees and legislation, that just underscores how scared Republicans have been of Americans learning the truth. Outrageous behavior. pic.twitter.com/9CzCZSlFJA

Seven Republicans put country over party
7 Republicans voted Saturday to convict former President Donald Trump of “incitement of insurrection.” They explain their vote. https://t.co/OawF1rTDPE

Mitch McConnell is a coward
Never forget what Mitch McConnell did:
1. Delayed the start of Trump’s trial until after he left office
2. Claimed the trial was unconstitutional because Trump left office (False)
3. Voted to acquit Trump
4. Gave grandstanding speech saying Trump was “morally” responsible

If only McConnell could’ve done something about Trump’s behavior
Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell delivered a scorching speech assailing Donald Trump as “practically and morally responsible” for the attack on the Capitol https://t.co/kWHGxJhbbV

Flashback: Lindsey Graham is offended by lying about blowjobs
Good luck trying to spin this simple fact:
Bill Clinton’s oral sex impeachment lasted…
Donald Trump’s domestic terrorist attack on the U.S. Capitol that killed a cop and at least 5 others lasted…
**LESS THAN A WEEK**
— Don Winslow (@donwinslow) February 13, 2021
With that in mind, surely Lindsey Graham would be outraged by the January 6 insurrection, right?
Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham and Ted Cruz — who swore to do impartial justice before Trump’s second impeachment trial — just left a meeting with Trump’s defense attorneys where they coordinated “strategy”.
