We all knew this was going to happen. The majority of the House Democratic caucus now supports impeachment proceedings against President Trump because he won the 2016 election. This was the plan all along. Of course, the Democrats couldn’t admit this after they retook the House in 2018. They had to look like they were going to push a legislative agenda, not engage in a crusade against the Trump White House until the next election cycle. It’s the tantrum of all tantrums. And while this is annoying—the impeachment circus—it’s also highly entertaining; Trump lives rent-free in the minds of the American Left. And every time they think about it, the more insane these people get which also increases the chances that Trump secures a second term.
So, a majority of House Democrats backs impeaching Trump. What say you, Speaker Nancy Pelosi? She isn’t budging. She knows this move will animate the GOP base. This is the declaration of nuclear political war, and she knows her side could very well lose. In fact, she knows it will; the Republicans control the Senate and they’re not going to go along with this nonsense. The Trump-Russia collusion myth has been thoroughly dissected as trash. There is no appetite to impeach among voters. As our friends at Twitchy noted, even pollsters are signaling that support for impeaching Trump has dropped.
Meanwhile, @SpeakerPelosi on a call with House Dems speaks to impeachment, given the growing list of her members who support an inquiry.— Rachael Bade (@rachaelmbade) August 23, 2019
Her first point, and perhaps the most important: "The public isn’t there on impeachment."
Speaker Pelosi reiterated again on conference call with her members today that each are free to do what he/she believes is best regarding impeachment but that she intends to follow the facts + noted that "the public isn’t there on impeachment"— Alex Moe (@AlexNBCNews) August 23, 2019
There's this extreeeeeeeeeeeeeeemly weird thing where a certain sort of resistance bro just sort of leaves out the rather important complication that impeaching Trump almost certainly wouldn't result in his removal from office.— Nate Silver (@NateSilver538) August 23, 2019
Meanwhile, despite the insistence that public support for impeachment would go up if more Democrats came out in favor of it, a whole bunch of Democrats have come out in favor of impeachment and public support has... decreased. https://t.co/kJzc1sOUj3— Nate Silver (@NateSilver538) August 23, 2019
And that plays into the narrative thus far for Democrats heading into 2020. They just don’t care about what voters think. They’re pushing health care for illegals, open borders, taxpayer-funded abortion, gun confiscation, and the destruction of private health insurance, which is part of their Medicare for All push. Oh, and this health care initiative will lead to the mother of all tax increases for the middle class. None of these proposals are popular with voters, especially the latter—and this impeachment push is no different. The liberal bubble is thick. It’s dense. And it keeps the nauseating stench of liberal condescension under an airtight seal. They’re wallowing in it now. What will happen when Trump wins again?
