JAN 6 HEARINGS: Dems in touch with ordinary Americans, once again
Darn, have to wash my hair
1) Democrats are giddily predicting their PRIME-TIME January 6th hearings will be like the Fulbright hearings, the Watergate hearings, the Army-McCarthy hearings!
Even assuming this week’s hearings weren’t a re-hash of 88% of all media content since January 6, those days are over. Nearly half the country watched the Watergate hearings. Today, the most-watched news network, Fox News, averages a couple million viewers a night.
Listening to Democrats say, for the 4 millionth time, DONALD TRUMP ALMOST DESTROYED OUR DEMOCRACY! isn’t exactly riveting TV.
On CNN yesterday, a commentator complained that a third of the country won’t even be watching these hearings! So she’s expecting two-thirds of the country to be watching.
Yes, I’m sure, they’re out shopping right now, buying beer and chips, preparing for the thrill and excitement of listening to the same thing we’ve heard for the past five years -- about a former president, who is fully out of office and never will be in office again.
More people watched the Depp-Heard trial, which will have more impact on their lives.
2) Liberals have spent the past five years trying to discredit Trump – inventing things, claiming he was a puppet of Putin, he engaged in collusion with Russia, the pee-pee tape, he groped an advice columnist and on and on.
Pro Tip: No one believes anything you say about Trump, anymore. We don’t need another years-long investigation to find out … Democrats are still hysterical drama queens.
The whole point my book, “Resistance Is Futile,” was that even when the left had a valid complaint with Trump, instead of sticking with what he actually did, the media would run off and accuse him of something he absolutely did NOT do.
Trump supporters would be standing there, ready to admit, Yeah, that was a stupid Tweet, so unbecoming of an adult, much less a president. And then …
LIBERALS: HE’S TRYING TO DESTROY OUR VERY DEMOCRACY!
3) Of all the things you’ve cried “Wolf!” over, January 6 is the most pathetic.
The Democrats’ argument is that it was legal “incitement” when Trump told rally-goers to walk to the Capitol and “peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.” The words “peacefully and patriotically,” you see, were a secret Bat-Signal, meaning, “commit wanton acts of violence for no purpose whatsoever.”
4) We didn’t almost lose our DEMOCRACY on Jan 6, and saying so over and over again just reminds everyone that you are ridiculous fruitcakes.
Assume the most extreme fever dreams of the left had come true: The protesters hung Vice President Mike Pence! Instead of just taking her lectern, they held House Speaker Nancy Pelosi at gunpoint! Maybe they assassinated her, too! Armed men in “TRUMP” hats occupied the Capitol for days!
Now what? Either:
a) The military takes the Capitol back and the perpetrators are sent to prison for a long, long time, (much as is happening now for something more like student radicals taking over the Dean’s office).
b) U.S. government officials, from the secretary of defense to the attorney general announce: Oh, okay, we’ll install Trump as dictator.
Could one of you complete raving loons answer that with a straight face?
5) No one gives a crap.
This is the conversation Rep. Jamie Raskin imagines will be taking place across America after the televised hearings on January 6 —
Dateline, Tommy’s Cafe, Davenport Iowa
I don’t care that it costs $5,000 to fill my Ford F-150! At least we got to the bottom of who stole Nancy Pelosi’s lectern.
You say a billion illegals are coming in? Are you hearing me, Otis – I don’t care! There were fingerprints at the south entrance to the Capitol and I want to know how they go there.
I know Americans can’t get baby formula, Fentanyl is pouring across our border, gas is a million dollars, BUT THE VISITORS’ CENTER AT THE CAPITOL WAS CLOSED FOR 11 CONSECUTIVE DAYS IN JANUARY 2021!
Can you imagine? A tourist gets to the capitol -- and the Visitors’ Center is closed.
If AOC can prevent this kind of scurrilous thing from ever happening again, I don’t care about my future, or the future of my children or my grandchildren.
