TDS Fatigue Continues: Impeachment Ratings Not Strong, Dropping Each Day

TDS Fatigue Continues: Impeachment Ratings Not Strong, Dropping Each Day

People just do not care.

I blogged in November about the low ratings of the impeachment inquiry hearings. I mentioned how it relates to Trump Derangement Syndrome fatigue.

The actual impeachment trial has lower ratings and each day loses more viewers.

From Reuters:

About 8.9 million TV viewers watched the U.S. Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump on Wednesday, the first day Democrats laid out their case against the president, marking a significant drop from the roughly 11 million viewers who watched on Tuesday, according to Nielsen ratings data.

The audience includes viewership from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm EST on Walt Disney Co’s ABC, AT&T Inc’s CNN, ViacomCBS’s CBS, Comcast Corp’s NBC and MSNBC, and Fox Corp’s Fox News. The trial continued until 9:43 p.m. EST that night.

Tuesday had higher ratings even though that only consisted of procedural events. The supposed juicy stuff began on Wednesday.

The data does not include those (like me) who watch the trial online. (I am staying with my best friend this week. I cannot subject her to this stuff! I love her too much!)

Strategy-wise, when Dems have something that has no credibility and is bound to fail and make them look extra stupid, look for Hirono to be loud and proud.

Everyone else mysteriously has a colonoscopy appointment the day they wanted volunteers.

    This sham impeachment reminds me of debating, where the note card said “Argument weak, yell like hell”.

“People just do not care” is an understatement.

I interact with dozens of people at work and not one single person has mentioned it.

Any mildly significant current event almost always gets at least a few mentions. This thing … zero.

Did $100K in bent “Russian” Facebook advertising have the same effect or cause the firing of Senior Hillary Clinton 2016 campaign staff as the collusion of Clinton/DNC, US Ukraine Embassy Senior Staff and Ukraine Govt. officials conspiring against the Trump2016 campaign? No. I am sick and tired of the ignoring of the facts regarding the manufacturing of the Black Book and the direct and significant interference by the Ukraine govt. in the 2016 elections. Manafort was fired from the Trump campaign as a direct result of Ukraine Govt. interference. This had tremendous effect and it is largely ignored.

My pet theory is that “People do not care” is frame supplied for the media when the underlying, plainly stated response is disgust, with both the Democrats and the media.

The first articles that brought up “lack” of interest by the public were replete with scathing reviews of the media and the Democrats.

As for me, I know the evidence, and I saw the defense in the House. And I can count Adam Schiff’s lies. I despise lying, and I do not willingly listen to it.

This will give the networks the excuse they need to stop covering it during the President’s defense.

Boy who cried wolf syndrome?

I just saw on thegatwaypundit that Rick Scott is threatening to protest Adam Schiff so he can get ejected.

I am not sure my son and his wife have even discussed it. Although Democrats, they just assume thos BS and Adam Schiff is a liar, Nadler what was meant by “insane clown posse”.

    Never a Juggalo and only a tacit liking and appreciation of ICP, but I am struggling to understand your reference.

On Wednesday President Trump’s approval rating was at 46%. That was the day Democrats started their opening arguments against President Trump.

On Friday President Trump’s approval rating was at 49%.

just out of curiosity, has any read or had the empty time on their hands to analysis the number of unique word, shifty used for his speech, I think he would do Herr Goebbels proud.

Well, I really, REALLY care a lot! Whew! Double-really! Triple, maybe. I mean to say that I swear up and down that I do! And, I’m thinking inside-out, too. So, there’s that!

Honestly … you don’t believe me? I set up a special alarm (in case I nod off while completely transfixed by this ultra-riveting trial) whenever Representative Jerry Nadler is about to speak … not that I think anyone is especially superior, or anything. But he is soooooo convincing, right?

Think “I’ve been working on the railroad.”

I’ve been waiting for the bombshell,
all the livelong day.
I’ve been waiting for the bombshell,
just to pass the time away.
You get my drift. Heh.

I predict they will cancel this poorly performing television series. It’s true that it premiered mid season, and that there are a lot of bad actors and a poorly designed plot. Not even sure Netflix would take them.

Friday is expected to drop anyways.

It will be a big surprise if the lawyer response tomorrow goes up.

Informal polling – I ask everyone I meet – and I haven’t found one single person who has seen or listened to anything impeachment. Many didn’t even know the trial was happening. Being older-ish, I follow up by asking if they paid attention to the Clinton impeachment and most who are old enough followed it closely.

Lindsey Graham worship in the GOP MSM turns my stomach. Lindsey Graham wakes every morning and wets his finger in his mouth and raises his arm to see which way the wind blows. Do Not Trust Lindsey Graham.

That being said; Lindsey Graham is a useful idiot. Idiot is wrong and demeaning and inappropriate when discussing Lindsey Graham. Lindsey Graham calculates and knows exactly what he says and does. Cui bono, soup du jour; Mama always said Lindsey Graham was like a box of chocolates…

Keep an eye on Lindsey, he is a snake in the grass.

The Demoncrats lost the soap opera viewers. What maroons!

There’s the old saying, “Familiarity breeds contempt.” The more you see of these socialist bastards, the more you despise them.
