The Democrats’ impeachment dream has crumbled.
Their attempt to take out Donald Trump with another sham investigation isn’t working.
And now Democrats are trembling over the bad impeachment news they got.
The Democrats went all-in on trying to kick Trump from office with impeachment.
They mobilized their entire media apparatus behind it.
All of the big media outlets and even the late-night comedy hosts did their part in selling impeachment.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi tried to insist impeachment was a solemn affair, even though she appeared on comedy shows and made commemorative pens for the signing of the articles of impeachment.
But the Democrats have one major problem: The American people largely don’t care.
Much to the dismay of liberal media figures like MSNBC’s Chris Hayes—who was furious at senators for walking out of Adam Schiff’s interminable opening statement—the ratings for the Senate trial have been abysmal.
According to Nielsen ratings, the big three broadcast networks saw a viewership collapse of 5.1 million viewers to 4.07 million viewers over the first week of the Senate trial.
That’s over a 20% decline across the board for ABC, CBS, and NBC.
The ratings got so dismal, networks preempted their planned wall-to-wall impeachment coverage with daytime soap operas, which drew better numbers.
The Democrats are working overtime to sell the gravity of impeachment, but the American people aren’t buying it.
Field reporters for both CNN and MSNBC have recently discovered that early primary voters do not care about impeachment.
The only people who care are the media class and Democratic elites who don’t care about Trump’s accomplishments.
Bill Maher nearly came to tears over the sham impeachment process failing.
He and other leftists are promoting it as the end of democracy in America.
First, America is a Republic, and the impeachment process was followed by the guidelines of the Constitution.
The only people breaking with norms are the Democrats.
They’re the ones who blocked the whistleblower from testifying in the House investigation because they didn’t want his untoward communications with Adam Schiff’s staff to come to light.
The Democrats are also the ones who held up the articles of impeachment for weeks in some desperate attempt to influence Senate rules.
Maher also said during his self-serving lamentation that he liked Bernie Sanders because the Antifa thugs who support him are willing to fight in the streets.
The left has gone truly insane.
They’re incapable of recognizing they’re the ones that are tearing down the country with their hysteria.
Speaking of democracy, according to polls, on the issue of removing Trump from office, 51% of Americans oppose it.
So the Democrats don’t even have a case on the grounds of direct democracy.
Meanwhile, Trump’s job approval ratings are climbing, and he’s as high as 50% in a Rasmussen poll.
If the Democrats have any hope of stopping Trump, they’re going to have to let go of 2016 and focus on issues that people actually care about in 2020.
