In her speech on the House floor on Wednesday, Speaker Nancy Pelosi lied about what President Trump said during his July 25 phone call to President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine. Pelosi claimed that President Trump had asked the Ukrainian leader to "do me a favor."
"The president of the United States," Pelosi began, "in using appropriated funds enacted in a bipartisan way by this Congress, funds that were meant to help the Ukraine fight the Russians, the president considered that his private ATM machine I guess."
Minor point, but someone should really inform Speaker Pelosi that the M in "ATM" already stands for "machine."
"And said," Pelosi continued, "do me a favor. Do me a favor? Do you paint houses, too?"
Pelosi's line, "Do you paint houses, too," was ripped from Martin Scorsese's Netflix film, "The Irishman," starring acute Trump Derangement Syndrome sufferer Robert De Niro. In the film, De Niro's character uses painting houses as a euphemism for murdering someone with a gun at close range and splattering the wall in the victim's blood. So this is how hysterical and void of fact the Democrats' impeachment hoax has become.
"What is this?" Pelosi then asked. "Do me a favor. So we have a situation that is very sad."
What is sad is that, in order to impeach the president, Democrats have to keep lying about the facts. Two Democratic representatives from Texas similarly lied about what President Trump said on his July 25 phone call back during the sham impeachment inquiry in the House.
Rep. Escobar said President Trump told President Zelensky, "I want you to do me a favor though."
Rep. Jackson Lee quoted Trump as saying, "I would like you to do a favor though."
What Trump actually said was, "I would like you to do us a favor though because our country has been through a lot." The full quote makes it clear that Trump was asking the president of Ukraine to do "our country" a favor and not himself.
And let's not forget the Democrats kicked off their little impeachment hoax with House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff inventing out of whole cloth incriminating statements that the president never uttered.
"I’m going to say this only seven times," Schiff lied about Trump's phone call, "so you better listen good, I want you to make up dirt on my political opponent, understand, lots of it, on this and on that, I’m going to put you in touch with people."
Democrats have made a complete break from reality, not that they were really living there to begin with.
