9 scenarios for how the Trump-Ukraine impeachment process could end?
vox.com by Matthew Yglesias Oct 07, 2019
But what we can tell you is that there are roughly nine scenarios of varying degrees of plausibility that are legally and constitutionally possible. Some of these involve Trump being impeached and some involve him leaving office and possibly, but not necessarily, both of those things. Some involve House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, or Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin becoming president. In theory, Trump could even be booted from office and then run again for reelection in 2020.

英语咬文嚼字 The Crazy Logophile

美国国共和党参议员林赛·格雷厄姆(Lindsey Graham) 是特朗普的忠实支持者。今天特朗普宣布从叙利亚撤军,遭到共和党本党的反对,连一贯支持特朗普的林赛·格雷厄姆也严厉批评特朗普。

今天美国美国公共电视台网刊登了美联社记者Steve Peoples的文章:As impeachment looms, GOP revolts against Trump on Syria。 文中谈到了 参议员林赛·格雷厄姆使用了“”unnerving to its core. ”来表达对特朗普撤军的看法。

to its core or to the core
Meaning: in every way 完完全全的, 彻头彻尾的 , 完全的

原文如下:
“I hope I’m making myself clear how short-sighted and irresponsible this decision is,” Graham told Fox News. “I like President Trump. I’ve tried to help him. This, to me, is just unnerving to its core.”

美国参议院多数党领袖米奇·麦康奈尔 (McConnell )反应却不是很强烈,记者使用了“ sanguine ”来描述米奇·麦康奈尔的心情。

sanguine
adjective formal /ˈsæŋ.ɡwɪn/
(of someone or someone's character) positive and hoping for good things
乐观的,乐天的 (Cambridge)

原文如下:
While a number of Republicans criticized Trump’s decision, one of their most important leaders, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, was sanguine, offering little concern about Syria or impeachment during an appearance at the University of Kentucky.

英语政治和媒体词典 Dictionary of Politics & Media

blue state

美国一个州的选民多数选举民主党候选人,这个州就是蓝州, 与共和党的红州相反。

即使蓝州,也分不同状态。如果该州的民主党候选人获胜,则该州已“变成蓝色”(turned blue)。

如果该州几乎所有种族都给民主党投票,则该州可能被视为“深蓝色”或“深蓝色”州 deep blue or dark blue state(如:新泽西州,俄勒冈州,佛蒙特州等)。

如果一个州通常投票给民主党人,但偶尔会投票给共和党人,那么他们就被称为“浅蓝色”州 light blue state(如弗吉尼亚州,宾夕法尼亚州,威斯康星州等)。

关于什么导致状态为深或浅蓝色,没有硬性规定。有些人可能认为科罗拉多州或新墨西哥州为浅蓝色州,而另一些人可能认为它们是摇摆州(swing states)。

相反,有些人可能认为缅因州或明尼苏达州为深蓝色,但另一些人则可能认为它们为浅蓝色,因为它们有可能在即将举行的选举中进行转换。
