Smirky McSmirker Matt Gaetz joined the Tucker Carlson White Power Hour, this time to denigrate a woman, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, for holding on to the articles of impeachment against a frantic Donald Trump.
With Donald Trump spends his latest taxpayer-funded vacation obsessing and squawking over Pelosi’s adroit maneuver, Fox News prime time did its part to show solidarity with Dear Leader. First, substitute host Mark Steyn asked guest Gaetz whether Pelosi will “bring this thing home” and deliver the articles of impeachment.
STEYN: Congressman, I’ve said - I think it was on Christmas Eve - that instead of the NORAD Santa tracker, NORAD ought to have an impeachment articles tracker to see how long it’s taking to do the 73 feet from Nancy Pelosi’s office to the Senate. I think it’s somewhere over the jungles of New Guinea right now. Is she actually gonna bring this thing home and deliver it to McConnell?
There’s probably nobody less likely to have an inside scoop on Pelosi’s strategy than Trump’s sycophantic fanboy, Congressman Gaetz.
But any Fox guest worth his salt knows that Steyn wasn’t looking for an answer so much as prompting poisonous partisan rhetoric.
Sure enough, Gaetz took his cue.
GAETZ: Nancy Pelosi appears to be limping through the back nine of the delivery of the articles of impeachment. And I think for regular folks in this country, it’s quite interesting to see impeachment first with no crime and no victim but now no transmission of the articles themselves. Listening to that montage you had of the mainstream media giving Nancy Pelosi a proverbial cat bath, it just reminds me that the rest of us ends up stuck with the hairball with this sort of bizarre circumstance where just weeks ago, it was Jerry Nadler and Eric Swalwell saying things like, nothing could be more urgent than this impeachment.
GAETZ: Swalwell called it a crime spree in progress, and now Nancy Pelosi sort of holds the Articles of Impeachment like some demented, you know, non-Santa Claus not delivering the gifts to the children. It's very strange to observe.
Watch it below, from the December 26, 2019 Tucker Carlson Tonight.
Fox News’ does the worst analysis in the industry. In that universe of crap Fox News analysis this one stands out as particularly obnoxious.
Yes, Nancy Pelosi is holding the Articles of Impeachment. Yes, the Senate is 73 feet from the House. End their discussion of facts.
Oh, poor Trump they cry. He’s simply doing things differently and getting impeached over it. Like bribing foreign leaders to interfere in his future election using a civilian lawyer and two indicted criminals. Gee, why haven’t previous presidents tried such clever tactics?
Don’t forget the long debunked Trump ass kiss the Democrats are keeping impeachment going because they have no agenda. Like the hundreds of bills they passed sitting in #MoscowMitch‘s self-proclaimed ’grave yard’. Oh, someone tell immigrant hating immigrant Setyn he need not worry about calls to Tajikistan popping up during this continuous investigation but evidence like the recent email dump with a damning timeline proving Trump a liar (again).
Finally, I’m calling on a Fox News moratorium on the ‘energizing the base’ talking point. There’s no evidence Trump has expanded his base. In fact, it looks like it has slightly shrunk. So what’s the point of continually agitating the same pool of rabid MAGA cultists?
McTurtle and Ms. Lindsey will summarily dismiss the impeachment as expected. Then deliver the other impeachment article on the eve of the GOPiggy convention.
