Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you now know that President Trump has been impeached on a rushed schedule with little official resistance from Republican leadership.
If you’re confused about why Mitch McConnell and Kevin McCarthy aren’t defending President Trump from the rushed impeachment railroading in Congress, Tucker Carlson has some knowlege to drop on you.
He says: “Here’s how it works from the perspective of the Republican leadership: It would be best if Donald Trump just went away forever. He’s embarrassing. They don’t want to talk about him. They’d like him to disappear. So that’s their plan with impeachment. Make it so that Trump can never run for office again, not that he actually planned to, and then disgrace Trump so thoroughly that he cannot appear in public ever again, then pretend that Donald Trump never happened.”
This is stupid, and Tucker explains why:
There are a couple of obvious problems with this approach, however. The first problem is it won’t work. By impeaching the president during his final week in office, Congress will not succeed in discrediting Trump among Republican voters. In fact, it will enhance Donald Trump among Republican voters, obviously. Who does your average Republican voter trust more, Donald Trump or the many people who hate Donald Trump? Donald Trump or Mitch McConnell? Donald Trump or CNN? You know the answer.
It’s not complicated, but apparently it’s too complicated for the dummies in the Republican Party who think impeachment will help them in the long run. Maybe you shouldn’t be surprised by that. These are the very same people who still defend the war in Iraq, who tell you with a straight face that Iran is the single biggest threat we will ever face as a nation. Not your falling wages or runaway health care costs or the hollowed-out economy that feels like it’s about to collapse or the Chinese fentanyl that just killed your nephew. No, Iran, an isolated, faraway country you could not find on a map at gunpoint, is the real threat.
The amazing thing is, they mean it when they say it, that’s how stupid and brainwashed they are. And by the way, they’re so dumb, they assume you agree with them. They have no idea what you really think. They haven’t spent five minutes wondering why you voted for Donald Trump in the first place, and by the way, they don’t care.
The GOP is pathetic.
