McConnell Planning Speedy Trial, Part 2 | The View

January 23, 2020

That will do it though nothing else well I mean this new CNN poll that came out said only half of Americans said that the Senate should vote to Convict Trump and remove him from office fifty-one percent say they should forty five percent said they shouldn’t vote against conviction and removal So a little more than half want him to I would never underestimate Mitch McConnell He’s a really shrewd long-term political animal and I think he knows what he’s doing I think the politics of this are a lot of these candidates the We’re gonna head to up in the New York Times endorsed two women for president they’re both gonna be pulled off the campaign trail because of this so politically it will ultimately end up hurting Democrats and I said, To you on the show What be which you corrected me because I don’t want to get in trouble again But if you take this shot don’t miss and play. I mean that metaphorically for the 10,000th time I think people thought I meant that literally And I just I don’t know I was in Arizona all weekend And I just don’t think this is where the pulse of the American people are at and I think that it’s more about the election than it is about the input hatch my cover and I would focus on voting him out Versus then I agree with that too that we should vote him out But how does this vindicate Trump when the American people see that there’s a cover-up that we haven’t seen the real triumph I don’t see that Trump gets vindicated, which is his greatest dream and it’s for us to say you’re a Baby, and that’s the thing I think ultimately if the Republicans follow this course if they are You know soso adverse to the will of the American people I think that ultimately it will affect the Republicans because when you go to the ballot box Are you going to vote for that senator? That did not do your will are you going to put that person back in office? I don’t think so. Well, here’s what’s interesting You know Everybody keeps saying this is going to be like the clinton trial, you know, because what’s good for the goose is good for the gander Yeah impeachment is impeachment doesn’t matter which side it is If it’s if you if you need to be removed as president people need to hear it now. I don’t know if people are Looking forward to removing a president, but I do believe that the American people regardless of who they voted for Really do care that the process stays the way it’s supposed to. Yeah I don’t think anybody wants to see this process usurped by You know people saying I’m I’m never going to do this. You can’t do that when you’re on a jury You can’t do that. You can’t they they don’t let you be on the jury when you say I’m I’ve made up my mind I don’t need to hear anything. You can’t you can’t well, they’re not getting away with it But we keep talking. Listen if they haven’t gotten away with it until they’ve gotten away with. All right so far We’re still gonna be a vote today. I just got the well But he may have the power but the people will make the decision and ultimately well, that’s what I’m trying to say That’s the bottom line. It’s like whether the New York Times endorses somebody or This one it doesn’t matter No one can tell you Who to vote for? You have to do the work

    I was reading the comments and I saw one comment by a particular character, whose name I won't mention, that really grabbed my attention. It really spoke to the mindset of the non-bigoted half of Trump's supporters and helped me to understand what their biggest issue is. And that issue happens to be that they are delusional. They are following Fox News and Twitter and getting facts mixed up.

    As he (Trump) dismantles the infrastructure of our economy and political system, as he destroys our relationships with our national neighbors, as he dismantles important peace programs, as he desecrates our sacred grounds for the cause of revenue, as he brings us to the brink of war for the sake of appeasing electoral senators, as he misrepresents the very fabric of what makes us a dignified people…they see him as a hero that has done so much for our country.

    I have a message for those voters. This man is Bush 2.0. It's happening all over again; He (Trump) inherited a healthy economy like Bush did, dismantled that economy like Bush did, created a war conspiracy like Bush did, and right now, there is no reason to believe that all of those things won't lead to the same kind of Bush era instability that eventually left many of us without jobs or proper healthcare.

    It all would happen in a second term. In one term you can prepare and distribute your plan for the country, but it would be during the second term when that society gets to feel the majority of its effect. You think you know what Trump has done. Not yet. You've been warned.

It’s an infuriating cycle, so many of of can’t stand her, yet we watch and comment ONLY to make sure that the ratings stay up, and she remains in trend. At this point the only way for her to get fired is to boycott the program, or have someone claim sexual misconduct on her part! (In both cases she’ll be fired with a hefty sum of settlement money…that will probably go towards her campaign lol.)

    Meghan is so transparently underequipped to participate in an educated conversation. When asked to defend how the issue of Trumpf interfering in the upcoming election is not central to the impeachment job she immediately deflects and plays victim crying that the other hosts are being 'angry" with her.
    The other cohosts should have called her out on it and pressed her to answer the question.
