GOP Questioning in Impeachment Hearing Is a Joke. That’s the Point.
I had to shut off the TV midway through the questioning of witnesses on the 1st day of the impeachment hearings, because the utter idiocy and faux outrage I was hearing from GOP congressman was filling me with so much anger that I was ready to set fire to my own head.
But the core audience of Fox News mouth-breathers, dingbats, neo-Nazis, and of course, the all-important Audience Of One all nodded in approval at the sheer genius of firing questions off like a tobacco auctioneer on crack.
I thought that this meme, which is quickly gathering strength (although not as much as crying women pointing at a snarky cat), pretty much sums up the response.
Basically, two cultured, seasoned professionals look at each other. “You got anything on this?” they ask each other. “No? Well, fuck it then.”
Let’s face it… when Trump and Giuliani say they want to fight corruption, they really mean they want to put on a show of fighting corruption to mask their own corruption. That is why true corruption fighters like Yovanovitch are such a problem for them. https://t.co/JYhQysawQ7
