Push to Impeach Trump
In an embarrassing attempt to push the impeachment narrative, a whole litany of liberal Hollywood celebrities did dramatic readings of the Mueller report. The whole report is 448 pages of drab legal jargon, which is apparently perfect for a theatrical performance.
If a member of the elitist media were to venture outside of their liberal bubble and talk to an average voter on the street about impeachment, the results would prove shocking to them. The fact of the matter is the majority of the country is against impeaching President Trump. Unsurprisingly, this has not deterred the press from shoving the impeachment motif down the throats of millions of Americans for months on end, as Fox News host Jesse Watters remarked on The Five Monday night.
The left’s latest attempt to rally support for impeachment was a massive failure with everyone but Hollywood and some media. Liberal Billionaire Tom Steyer’s Need to Impeach group was joined by MoveOn, the Women’s March, Indivisible and others at an Impeach Trump Day of Action June 15.
A coalition of liberal groups including California Billionaire Tom Steyer’s Need to Impeach and MoveOn, the Women’s March, Indivisible and more held an Impeach Trump Day of Action June 15. Although, conservatives poked fun at the rallies that fell flat and had poor turnout — which might explain the minimal national media coverage of the events.
During Last Week Tonight Sunday, host John Oliver devoted nearly his entire show to advocating for the impeachment of President Trump while attempting to portray himself as neutral on the matter. Oliver appeared to have a newfound sense of motivation to push for impeachment following President Trump’s interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos.
CNN’s Don Lemon was hardly an outlier among his colleagues in the media when he rejoiced in former White House Counsel John Dean’s comparisons of the Watergate scandal to the Mueller report during an appearance on Capitol Hill. However, Lemon differentiated himself from the others in the media by complaining that media coverage of a helicopter crash in New York City eclipsed coverage of Dean’s testimony in front of the House Judiciary Committee Monday.
Even though he was coming from the rabidly pro-impeachment camp, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews was apoplectic Tuesday night with Congressman Eric Swalwell (D-CA) and his colleagues on the left for their lack of progress in trying to rid America of Donald Trump. In the span of over three minutes, Matthews blasted them for “never get[ting] anything done” on impeachment, calling witnesses against the President, and for bringing in CNN contributor John Dean for a “ridiculous” hearing.
Ever fervent in their Trump impeachment agenda, the liberal media decided to attack Fox News on MSNBC’s The Last Word, Monday night. Host, Lawrence O’Donnell, set the stage for Jill Wine-banks, a former Watergate prosecutor, asking: “Jill Wine-Banks, this must have been odd for you to watch having worked on the Watergate case where in fact, Republicans did cooperate in the House Judiciary Committee a total of seven Republicans ultimately voted for at least one article of impeachment against President Nixon.”
The hosts were divided on The View Tuesday over Democrats dragging out John Dean to testify over the Mueller report Monday, where he compared President Trump to Richard Nixon. The stunt was praised by View hosts Sunny Hostin and fill-in host Deborah Roberts as historically necessary, but Meghan McCain called out the disgraced, former White House counsel for his partisanship and history of hackery.
Friday night, MSNBC’s Chris Hayes made some unusually ridiculous statements surrounding the ongoing push by the liberal media to indict President Trump. Hayes began by showing a clip of Fox News host Sean Hannity criticizing recent comments from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi claiming she wanted to see Trump “in prison.”
To say that Joy Reid has impeachment on the noggin is a vast understatement. Once again today, she devoted the great majority of her MSNBC show to pushing impeachment. For our readers' entertainment, we've put together a mashup in which the I-word was used no fewer than 46 times in a variety of forms and contexts—and we might have missed a few!
On Nicolle Wallace's MSNBC show, Deadline: White House, John Heilemann attacks Fox News in general, and Sean Hannity in particular, for creating a political and business model built on lies, fantasy, hypocrisy, and "bullshit."
During his closing argument Thursday night, CNN host Chris Cuomo gave the Democrats a pep talk as they ponder what to do regarding impeachment. In addition to repeatedly begging the Congressional Democrats to “do your duty,” Cuomo made an effort to tie the idea of impeachment proceedings to the 75th anniversary of D-Day.
