CNN’s hatred of Donald Trump has taken the network to a dark place.
They will do and say anything to attack the President.
And one CNN analyst made up a fake story that will make you sick.
CNN and other corporate press outlets have gone all-in on impeachment.
They’re doing their best to sell it like it’s a new “Marvel” movie coming out.
Despite their best efforts, ratings for impeachment have not been good, which rankles Democrats.
They’re getting particularly frustrated that Republican senators are doing crossword puzzles or simply walking out during the boring proceedings.
CNN and other networks are insisting that House Intelligence Chairman and impeachment lawyer Adam Schiff is Atticus Finch come to life.
It’s still not working.
The people aren’t moved on impeachment.
In fact, public opinion is swaying to Trump as the entire imbroglio drags on.
But in order to spice things up, CNN has resorted to flat-out fabricating stories.
CNN analyst Joe Lockhart tweeted: “Overheard convo between two Republican Senators who only watch Fox News. ‘is this stuff real? I haven’t heard any of this before. I thought it was all about a server. If half the stuff Schiff is saying is true, we’re up sh*t’s creek. Hope the White House has exculpatory evidence.[‘]”
This is laughable, and not just because it’s fake.
Schiff and the Democrats haven’t presented any evidence of a crime.
If they had, they would’ve included criminal charges in their articles of impeachment, which they waited weeks to present to the Senate despite their cries of urgency.
The Democrats’ so-called star witnesses in the House inquiry all said Donald Trump did not ask for a quid pro quo regarding his phone call with Ukraine.
Lockhart let his awful tweet get mocked before he eventually admitted he made it all up.
Lockhart confessed, “Ok maybe I made up the convo, but you know that’s exactly what they’re thinking.”
No, that’s not what they were thinking.
As evidenced by the walk-outs and the glazed-over eyes, they were thinking this entire ordeal couldn’t be more pointless.
The Democrats can stomp their feet all they want, but there’s no there there.
Even Trump enemies within the GOP establishment like Mitt Romney have given no indication they would vote for Trump’s removal.
The Democrats are in fantasyland if they think they can peel off 20 Republican senators in order to oust Trump.
In fact, they may not even have all Democrats.
Joe Manchin of West Virginia, whose state is heavily pro-Trump, might vote with the Republicans as he did during Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
Lockhart’s fake tweet speaks to a deeper issue among the left.
They get so swept up in narrative that they can’t understand how everyone else is living in reality.
Lockhart must’ve taken his cues from Schiff, who read into the congressional record a fake phone conversation between Donald Trump and Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky.
