Foxaganda & Friends begs viewers not to watch ‘boring’ impeachment trial: ‘Turn to us to summarize it’


Recommended Posts

Fox "news" hosts assured viewers who hadn’t tuned in to the first day of the impeachment trial that they hadn’t missed anything.

The hosts of “Fox & Friends” told their viewers that Day One of President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial was long, opaque and ran well into the morning hours — which Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell insisted upon.

 

“There were snippets, and we’re showing you the good stuff,” said co-host Steve Doocy. “It was unbelievably boring. I don’t know how people can follow it.”

 

Co-host Ainsley Earhardt summed up the first day by saying Republicans had approved the rules, but Democrats insisted “over and over and over” that they wanted additional witnesses, and co-host Pete Hegseth assured viewers they didn’t need to watch themselves.

 

“We watched so that you don’t have to watch the entire thing,” Hegseth said. “If you watched it, you felt like you were watching opening arguments — those haven’t even started yet. This is just the debate over the rules. I was sitting back watching last night thinking, this is a circus. My wife Jen corrected me — at least sir curses are entertaining. This is just a show, you know how it’s going to end, 53-47 on every vote.”

 

Earhardt reassured viewers who hadn’t tuned in that they weren’t alone.

“I don’t think the majority of people watched,” she said. “I think they just turn to us to be able to summarize it for them because it was so long.”

 

 

Fox & Friends downplays the impeachment trial: "It was unbelievably boring. I don't know how people can follow it. ... I don't think the majority of people watched. I think they just turn to us to be able to summarize it for them because it was so long."

Fox "news" is a scurrilous, fascist propaganda operation, who for the most part, the sleazy fascist, Rupert Murdoch, hires the most mentally and morally defective people in the world, like Hannity, Ingraham and Carlson.

They fired Shep Smith for actually telling the truth, and I wonder how much longer Chris Wallace will last, since he actually calls Republicans liars, when they lie!!!

Colbert burns impeachment: ‘Soon we will find out if breaking the law is illegal’

“Late Show” host Stephen Colbert burned Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) for wanting to hide the impeachment trial from the American people.

 

First, McConnell tried to hold the trial over just two days for each side, meaning it would go well into the early hours of the morning when most of the country would be asleep. After a huge uprising, some Republicans decided they weren’t willing to risk the bad optics that had.

 

Second, McConnell is trying to build in a killswitch so that if the Senate votes to allow for witnesses, he’ll mandate that they’re all in secret and Americans will never know what they say.

 

 

But worst for the GOP, the host boiled the argument down to a single, perfect sentence.

 

“Soon,” Colbert began, “we will find out if breaking the law is illegal.”

Watch his attack on McConnell below:

Conservative columnist:....

Democrats have proven Trump is ‘guilty as sin’ and must be removed: 

Writing for the Washington Examiner, conservative columnist Quin Hillyer wrote that Democrats at the impeachment trial have put forward a devastating and concise argument for President Donald Trump’s conviction and removal.

 

“In a day full of solid evidence presented by Democrats in the Senate impeachment trial, Rep. Hakeem Jeffries of New York provided the most powerful, concise, two-minute summary of the whole controversy of the past four months,” wrote Hillyer. “‘We are here, sir, because President Trump pressured a foreign government to target an American citizen for political and personal gain. We are here, sir, because President Trump solicited foreign interference in the 2020 election and corrupted our democracy. We are here, sir, because President Trump withheld $391 million in military aid from a vulnerable Ukraine without justification in a manner that has been deemed unlawful….'”

 

“Trump violated the Impoundment Control Act by withholding the funds without telling Congress,” wrote Hillyer. “In doing so, he harmed America’s diplomatic interests while serving Vladimir Putin’s interests. He harmed American sovereignty by enlisting a foreign government to target American citizens without any alleged violation of U.S. law by those citizens. He probably violated campaign finance law by soliciting a thing of value, for the benefit of his campaign, from a foreign entity. And Trump tied all of these transgressions together in a way corrupt and, broadly speaking, extortionary.”

 

 

“Trump is guilty as sin,” Hillyer concluded. “The Senate should see the evidence and hear the witnesses who will fill the gaps in the public record, and then, they should convict and remove him from office.”
