The fake news media is just as invested in impeaching Donald Trump as any Democrat in Washington.
So-called “journalists” thought they finally nailed the President when one CIA spy filed a whistleblower complaint against Trump that ignited talk of removing him from office.
But this brand new poll just handed the media one humiliating impeachment defeat.
Ever since the fake news latched onto this fabricated scandal, Democrats have whipped their partisans up into a pro-impeachment fervor.
However, from day one, Donald Trump has dismissed the media frenzy around his phone call with the Ukrainian President as fake news.
The President pointed out that the fake and corrupt media was instead serving as a praetorian guard for former Vice President Joe Biden.
That’s because on the call, President Trump had raised the issue of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky looking into Joe Biden having possibly strong-armed the previous Ukrainian President into firing a prosecutor who had been investigating Burisma – the energy company paying Biden’s son Hunter $50,000 per month to sit on its board.
Democrats and the fake news media howled and claimed President Trump had abused his office by leveraging American military aide to Ukraine to force President Zelensky to dig up dirt on Biden – who was considered President Trump’s top rival.
Fake news media outlets, the Biden campaign, and every Democrat also pushed the questionable assertion that politics played no role in Biden blackmailing the Ukrainian President into firing the prosecutor who just happened to be in charge of the Burisma case.
The fake and corrupt media presented this as a closed case.
President Trump assumed the role of a mafia don threatening to leave Ukraine at the Russian military’s mercy by depriving them of vital aid unless the government ran a corrupt fishing expedition into his rival.
And Joe Biden was the true red, white, and blue patriot who advanced the interests of the Western alliance by forcing out a corrupt and incompetent prosecutor.
But the American people weren’t buying what the fake news was selling.
A brand new Monmouth University poll found roughly the same number of people felt Donald Trump had pressured President Zelensky (45 to 36) as believed that Joe Biden pressured the Ukrainian government to stop the investigation into his son.
The Washington Post’s political gossip writer Aaron Blake summed up the media disconnect when he tweeted, “One has an official rough transcript to support it; the other is a highly speculative, dubious claim about Biden. Yet voters appear to regard them as similarly plausible.”
But in Blake’s own fake news column on the poll, he undercuts his own argument.
“Zelensky has said he didn’t feel pressured on the call. But shortly before asking for the investigations, Trump repeatedly noted how good the United States had been to Ukraine. There was no explicit quid pro quo, but Trump seemed to be linking U.S. assistance to his requests in a way that at least implied pressure,” Blake wrote.
The transcript of the phone call between President Trump and Zelensky never mentions American military aide or any other conditions of American support in exchange for investigating Biden.
In fact, the only “favor” Trump asks Zelensky for on the call is to assist in the investigation of alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
In contrast, Biden is on video tape bragging about blackmailing the Ukrainian President into firing the prosecutor that had been investigating his son’s company.
Blake – and the rest of the fake and corrupt news media’s – efforts to bamboozle the American people into disbelieving what they see on tape and can clearly read on paper has failed.
