Late Night Hosts Cheer Impeachment: ‘Holy Crap!’ ‘Finally Happening?’

Listen to the Article!

Liberals in the media the past two years seem to be a living rendition of the movie Groundhog Day. The same routine is repeated every day, always ending with an “explosive new scandal” that will supposedly lead to President Trump being ousted from the White House. Tuesday’s Impeachment Inquiry announcement from Nancy Pelosi led to mass celebrations in the media, especially on the part of the liberal late-night host crowd.

The Trump detractors could barely contain their excitement as they relayed the news to their equally jazzed liberal audiences. Conan O’Brien began with a dark twist:
 

 

We got big things to talk about. Huge news.... Today, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced a formal Impeachment Inquiry into President Trump over his inappropriate conduct with Ukraine. That's a big story. Big thing that's happening. Yeah, Trump was furious and said this is nuts. I've done way worse things. This? I've killed people. What are you talking about?

This comment in and of itself could be taken as a joke in poor taste. Up until O’Brien’s sidekick Andy Richter added “That's almost not even a joke.”

Next in line was The Daily Show host Trevor Noah who was in a state of disbelief:

Holy crap. Is this finally happening? After two year of avoiding it, Trump may finally face articles of impeachment, which, believe me, he is not happy about. It's impeachment which Trump hates plus articles which he hates even more…And if you thought Trump was unhinged before, I can't even imagine what he's going to be like now. Like, he's been crazy. Can you imagine what he's gonna be like now?

Even the less political hosts pounced. The Tonight Show’s Jimmy Fallon partook in the action as he opened his show dressed in a Trump costume to mock the President:

Thank me. Thank me very much. You're all very happy that I'm here at the United Nations. And then wow, just look at all the room full of diverse cultures and ethnicities seriously, it's like the scariest college brochure I've ever seen. But I know what you're all thinking, it's so great to be here with me for the last four to six hours of my Presidency. Who knew? You make one phone call blackmailing a foreign leader and everyone acts like you made one phone call blackmailing a foreign leader. I guess it's like the old saying, "Fool me once shame on you. collude twice, why not collude a third time?" But now, it looks like my whistle has been blown and not in a good way.

Far-left ABC host Jimmy Kimmel was salivating while announcing the news to his crowd:

The whistles are blowing in Washington as Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, today announced that the House of Representatives will launch a formal impeachment inquiry into the actions of the President of the United States. For months now, Pelosi has -- it's not going to get rid of him. She's been very reluctant to do this, but once again, Donald Trump is doing what he does best, forcing a woman to do something she didn't want to do.

CBS's Late Show host Stephen Colbert, a very partisan comedian, could barely contain himself:

Oh, good Lordy. What a day. You really feel the ground shifting under your feet. But it you've got a seatbelt on your couch, number one: Why? Number two: Buckle up, because for two and a half years, Donald Trump has had scandal after scandal: Russian collusion, obstruction of justice, saying Nazis are fine people, being an unnamed co-conspirator to campaign finance violations, lying about the Moscow Trump tower, stealing money to pay for the border wall, faking the weather with a sharpie.

Every time-- every time-- none of those are made up. Every time, people have asked, "Is this the thing? Surely, this must be the thing." And every time, it wasn't the thing. But here's the thing: There's a new thing, and it might be the thing.

Late Late Show host James Corden on CBS blustered:

You heard Pelosi! Finally, the time for talking about impeachment is over! It's time to inquire about impeachment! This is it, guys! Let the talking stop and the inquiring begin! It's really gaining steam now. It is. At this rate, Democrats should have Trump impeached by the last six months of his second term. More than 180 House Democrats are now in favor of Impeaching President Trump. It's like the old saying goes, "work with a foreign government to undermine a Democratic election once, shame on you, do it twice, we're going to inquire about the possibility of doing something this time, maybe, we'll see, possibly." "I don't know."

Finally, NBC Late Night host Seth Meyers gave the coup de grace of the evening:

In that case, let's get to the news, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced this evening that Democrats will open a formal Impeachment Inquiry against President Trump. And I've had my doubts in the past but I think this time she's serious. President Trump this morning denied reports that he withheld military aid from Ukraine in order to pressure of the country to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his family he denied it and that's how you know he did it.

Once again, late night hosts demonstrate that they are only talking to half the country, ignoring red state America.

TREVOR NOAH: Holy crap. Is this finally happening? After two year of avoiding it, Trump may finally face Articles of Impeachment, which, believe me, he is not happy about. It's impeachment which Trump hates plus articles which he hates even more. Yeah, if his mom ever caught him with a Playboy magazine he would be like, "I swear I'm not reading the articles, just looking at the boobs." And if you thought Trump was unhinged before, I can't even imagine what he's going to be like now. Like, he's been crazy. Can you imagine what he's gonna be like now? You better keep your kids away from Twitter people because this thing is going to be a Category 5 tweet storm and this one will hit Alabama.

JIMMY KIMMEL: Thank you for coming to the show and for all of the clapping on what is a major news day in the United States. The whistles are blowing in Washington as Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, today announced that the House of Representatives will launch a formal impeachment inquiry into the actions of the President of the United States. For months now, Pelosi has -- it's not going to get rid of him. She's been very reluctant to do this, but once again, Donald Trump is doing what he does best, forcing a woman to do something she didn't want to do. At least 173 members of the House now back some type of Impeachment...But Trump would be the third President to face Impeachment proceedings, and he's already promising that if he does it will be the biggest and most beautiful Impeachment in history, that I can tell you. The reason this is happening now is because, if you don't know, a whistle-blower, a U.S. Intelligence official filed a complaint stemming from a phone call in July in which Trump asked the President of Ukraine to dig up dirt on Joe Biden's son who had business dealings in Ukraine. And on top of that, we learned that only days before the call, Trump ordered his Chief of Staff to place a hold on military aid to Ukraine and they needed the aid to protect themselves from his buddy in Russia. Despite all this, the President says he did nothing wrong. He said the call was perfect. It was a perfect call. Even the Ukraine is me-kraine. He's now claiming he was withholding the money to stop corruption. Even he had to clear his throat a little before that one came out of his mouth. I guess he feels nothing can stop him now. He got away Russia in the election. It makes perfect sense he would ask Ukraine to help him with the next one.

COLBERT: Okay! Okay! Okay, but how do you feel? I'll say this-- finally, a check on the President! Up until now, we've only had a check from the President to a porn star.
