Flashback: Democrats and the Media on Impeachment During the Trump Years Versus Now

Flashback: Democrats and the Media on Impeachment During the Trump Years Versus Now

“Impeachment is something we undertake only for serious crimes and misdemeanors, or because the president is a Democrat and that makes us mad.”

It never fails that when a Democrat’s back is up against the wall, the mainstream media rushes to run interference for them by echoing (or sometimes inventing) talking points in their defense. And as was confirmed very recently, sometimes those talking points are provided to the press directly by Democrats themselves.

That is, of course, exactly what we’re seeing play out this week in the aftermath of House Speaker Kevin McCarthy green-lighting the start of an impeachment inquiry against President Joe Biden.

Already, Sen. Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, Reps. Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi and all the rest are declaring the impeachment inquiry to be a frivolous “witch hunt” not based on evidence, with Schumer stating on Tuesday, “The American people want us to do something that will make their lives better, not go off on these chases, witch hunts.”

Here’s what Schiff said on the matter:

CNN’s Kaitlan Collins was among the many in the media who went along with the “no evidence” narrative in an exchange with Rep. Nancy Mace earlier this week by insinuating there wasn’t evidence yet of any wrongdoing by Joe Biden:

Major newspapers are kicking things into high gear as well, as exemplified by Washington Post columnist Alexandra Petri, who declared that talk of impeachment was a serious matter but that it was only happening in this case because Republicans didn’t like that Biden was a Democrat:

As a reminder to Petri and others with a similar mindset, however, here’s a flashback to how quickly impeachment talk against Donald Trump got started in the MSM and among Democrats:

Democrat Rep. Al Green in May 2017 first called for Trump’s impeachment during a House floor speech. He spoke about it several times after in floor speechesstatementsinterviews, and on social media.

His equally impeachment-hungry colleague Maxine Waters was talking about impeaching Trump one month into his administration.

There was also this, from various media outlets:

Let us also not forget the celebratory nature of the Washington Post after House Democrats voted to impeach Trump  in December 2019:

But yeah, impeachment inquiries and hearings are a solemn, serious process that should be grounded in solid evidence, a step only taken after careful consideration of all the facts and which we must respect, says the media. Sure. Now if only they and Democrats practiced what they preached…

Snooki would beat Biden.
Eddie Haskell would too, after stabbing Joe in the eye when no one was looking.
Nellie Olsen would have her maid mop the floor with Joe.
Cousin Oliver would run a close race, but eventually pull it off.

That insane woman started their get in their face BS, and the troops answered

“Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up. And if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.” – Maxine Waters

“The American people want us to do something that will make their lives better, not go off on these chases, witch hunts.”

And yet you spent the better part of 4 years inventing “crimes” to impeach Trump over – hamstringing his presidency, distracting the legislature from doing the people’s business, and contributing mightily to the division of the nation. Guess it’s not a witch hunt when you are doing the hunting huh?

Lest we forget – “Impeach fody five”

The majority of the media and dumbocrats are dumb assholes. RFK Jr is an exception.

All the libs were on the usual bandwagon just like now. The only problem is they are all wearing neck braces from the abrupt direction change.

Evidence is not evidence when it’s against a Democrat, but made-up evidence is good enough against a Republican.

You can tell a democrat because they all have whiplash.
