The 4th Democratic Debate Is Two Weeks Away but Harris and Gabbard Campaigns Already Going at It

After Sen. Kamala Harris acted stupidly this week with her formal letter to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey demanding President Trump be suspended from the social media platform, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard was asked about the move. The Hawaii Congresswoman pushed back with a strong answer about how trying to silence people over political disagreements is wrong.

The Hill reports:

When Gabbard was asked by a reporter her thoughts on Harris’s attempts to have Trump removed from Twitter, the Hawaii representative said she did not agree with the idea.

She added that “freedom of speech is something that is an important, foundational, right in our democracy.”

“We can’t just cancel or shut down or silence those who we disagree with or who hold different views or who say things that even that we strongly disagree with or abhor,” she told NBC.

Watch Gabbard speak on this issue below:

Harris campaign spokesman Ian Sams responded to Gabbard’s remarks by stating that Gabbard got her talking points from Fox News:

It was a ridiculous answer considering this issue is not about Fox News but whether or not “cancel culture” should apply to your political opponents simply because you disagree with them, as NRSC senior adviser Matt Whitlock pointed out in a tweet blasting Sams:

That said, we shouldn’t be too surprised by Sams’ nonsensical response considering the sad state the Harris campaign has been in for quite some time now.

Sams’ tweet came several hours after Gabbard’s spokesman Cullen Tiernan took a jab at the Harris campaign over reports it is being restructured in an attempt to become competitive again:

The debate that is scheduled to take place in two weeks will be on one night only, meaning all candidates will be on the same stage. Gabbard famously torched Harris in the 2nd debate in July. I’m looking forward to Round 2 between these two.

And to be honest, I’m kinda sorta hoping for a similar outcome.

CNN Brings On Andrew McCabe to Analyze the Case Against Andrew McCabe

Caricature by DonkeyHotey flic.kr/p/Ct4G4K https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0/

CNN simply has no shame left. That’s all I can figure at this point.

Andrew McCabe is currently under criminal investigation and it’s all but been confirmed that he will face prosecution in the near future. Despite all that, CNN continues to use him as an unbiased “analyst” commenting on the FBI. That’d be the same FBI he lied to multiple times, leading to his firing. You can’t make this stuff up.

But just when you thought it couldn’t get dumber, Brooke Baldwin brought McCabe on to trash “conspiracy theories” that include his actions, even though we know he did what he did and that it’s not a conspiracy theory. There just might be a conflict of interest there. I don’t know, just thinking out loud.

This is CNN (via The Federalist).

Baldwin asked McCabe why Attorney General William Barr is meeting with foreign counterparts to find out more about the hoax that duped the U.S. government into spending two years and millions of dollars unsuccessfully searching for Russian collusion with the Trump campaign to steal the 2016 election.

Well, if the guy who lied to the FBI multiple times testified to something, it must be true, right? And if you right a book, then that’s like double-super truth telling.
In regards to his assertion, it’s actually very much still a mystery because we do not know if there was even probable cause to do half the things they did in opening and conducting the investigation. What evidence were they using to take the unprecedented step of investigating the campaign of a current candidate for President? The most obvious answer is the garbage Steele dossier, but even if you buy the spin about Papadopoulos, questions remain there as well. Why was he invited to Italy? Why was he approached by several different assets working with the FBI? Was it a setup? There’s plenty there for Barr left to mine and McCabe clearly wants him to stop.

While being paid to talk on-air as a contracted CNN contributor, McCabe questioned the validity of an investigation into his and James Comey’ misconduct. McCabe is being investigated for repeatedly lying to the FBI’s inspector general about his decisions while at the FBI. Comey has been criticized by the Justice Department watchdog for violating FBI rules. Both are implicated in applications to a secret court to spy on the Trump campaign.

Think about this. CNN is paying a proven liar, who was fired from the FBI, to comment not just on the FBI, but the case against him. This is done not as an interviewee, but as a paid analyst.

Worse, Baldwin offers zero pushback on anything he says. She just sits there and nods along, as if there are no questions surrounding McCabe’s personal conduct. Then she points him to commenting on Barr looking into “Trump conspiracies,” even though McCabe has been shown to be at the center of many of the questionable actions at the FBI during his tenure and that much fo what they call “conspiracies” have been shown to have some basis in truth. At one point, it was a “conspiracy” to suggest the FBI had run assets against the Trump campaign. Now, they’ve admitted it. Same for the usage of the Steele dossier in the FISA warrants against Carter Page.

I think we’ve reached the point where literally anyone can be rehabilitated and handed a CNN gig as long as they parrot orange man bad enough. It’s both hilarious and sad.

Rudy Giuliani Ups the Ante: Trump May Sue House Democrats, and There’s Evidence Obama Colluded with Ukraine

Whoa — in two tweets Wednesday, the President’s personal attorney indicated he’s considering suing House Democrats over their investigation into Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky:

“We are carefully considering our legal options to seek redress against Congress and individual members. For engaging in an organized effort that exceeded their limited powers, under the Constitution, and …for trampling on the constitutional rights of citizens by engaging in several illicit plans, carried out by illegal means, to remove the President of the US, on knowingly falsified charges allegations.”

Giuliani — who’s been subpoenaed by Congress in the probe — also broached the subject on Fox program The Ingraham Angle Tuesday. He explained to host Laura that a constitutional lawyer and civil rights attorney suggested he “bring a lawsuit on behalf of the President and several of the people in the administration.”

Plus:

“Maybe even myself as a lawyer against the members of Congress, individually for violating constitutional rights, violating civil rights. They’re doing extraordinary things.”

The former mayor of New York claimed Democrats are impeding his ability to work with leaders of other nations.

Rudy called the Dem frenzy “worse than McCarthy.”

But wait — there’s more.

On Monday night with Sean Hannity, Giuliana said there’s significant evidence the Obama White House ordered Democrats to go in cahoots with Ukraine in order to get dirt on then-candidate Trump:

“The reason why the President of the United States had an obligation to ask the president of Ukraine to follow up on these allegations because there is substantial — I don’t want to exaggerate it but pretty close to overwhelming evidence, including a finding by a Ukrainian court that Hillary Clinton and the Democrats cooperated with Ukrainians with the order coming directly from the White Hous …to dig up dirt on her political opponent, and they did.”

So it’s a Ukrainian extravaganza.

One person who surely isn’t enjoying the festivities: Joe Biden. The Dems’ obsession is cookin’ his goose.

Onward, therefore, Elizabeth Warren, to a 2020 stage upon which you’ll be crushed by a guy who takes no prisoners during debate.

And, despite the opposition party’s greatest dreams, that’s what’s going to happen — he’s gonna be taking no prisoners, not being a prisoner.

Once again, their focus on trying to defeat Trump rather than win an election with superior policies and a superior candidate will be their undoing.

And the beat goes on…and they’re gonna get beat.

A Federal Judge Stops Georgia’s Stringent Abortion Law, and One Senator Must be Saying a Prayer of Thanks

Westlake Legal Group newborn-baby-infant-headgear-child-finger-hair-accessory-1429203-pxhere.com_-620x413 A Federal Judge Stops Georgia’s Stringent Abortion Law, and One Senator Must be Saying a Prayer of Thanks Uncategorized steve jones sean young Politics h.b. 481 Government Georgia Front Page Stories fetal heartbeat bill Featured Story democrats Culture brian kemp Allow Media Exception aclu Abortion

 

 

On Tuesday, a federal judge instated a block against Georgia’s fetal heartbeat bill.

The law was set for effect on January 1st, but U.S. District Judge Steve Jones put a temporary hold on it.

As reported by Atlanta’s WSB-TV, Planned Parenthood, the Center for Reproductive Rights, and the American Civil Liberties Union sued the state in June over the legislation.

Except in cases of rape or incest officially reported to police, H.B. 481 bans abortion once a heartbeat is detected.

ACLU of Georgia Legal Director Sean Young told the Daily Caller News Foundation Tuesday’s decision was a triumph for women:

“Today is a tremendous victory for the women of Georgia and for the Constitution. Politicians have no business telling women or couples when to start or expand a family. This case has always been about one thing: letting her decide.”

A spokesperson for Brian Kemp, the Republican governor who signed the bill, said his administration is dedicated to its pro-life position:

“We are currently reviewing Judge Jones’ decision. Despite today’s outcome, we remain confident in our position. We will continue to fight for the unborn and work to ensure that all Georgians have the opportunity to live, grow, and prosper.”

Congressional Democratic Kirsten Gillibrand is surely relieved by the judge’s decision. For her, it’s a downright answer to prayer — in May, the senator told the world being pro-abortion was the duty of every Christian:

“If you are a person of the Christian faith, one of the tenets of our faith is free will. One of the tenets of our democracy is that we have a separation of church and state, and under no circumstances are we supposed to be imposing our faith on other people. And I think [the heartbeat law] is an example of that effort.”

As I pointed out at the time:

I’d like to take a moment and point out that, irrespective of any political issue, that statement made absolutely no logical sense.

In response to this latest judicial turn, Planned Parenthood East’s Barbara Ann Luttrell celebrated on behalf of folks nationwide:

“This is a victory for Georgia and people all across the country. We promise the people we serve and the people across the state to protect access to abortion, and together we have.”

Barbara was down and out just months ago amid a wave of pro-life legislation, lamenting, “We’ve never seen it this bad.”

She shouldn’t get too comfortable — the block is, of course, only temporary.

Nevertheless, Planned Parenthood Southeast CEO Staci Fox also championed the move, reminding America how abortion should be:

“To the countless Georgians who spoke out against this ban and were ignored, we promised to keep fighting every step of the way and we have. … To Governor Kemp, we promised to see you in court, and we did. But most importantly, to our patients, we promised to protect access to safe, legal abortion and together we have.”

“Safe and legal” — as recently as 2008, Hillary Clinton reiterated that abortion should be “safe, legal, and rare.” Democrats seem to be drifting away from that last part.

Surrender: City of San Francisco Suddenly Figures Out They Can’t Win Their Latest War Against the NRA

Westlake Legal Group nra-constitution-620x349 Surrender: City of San Francisco Suddenly Figures Out They Can’t Win Their Latest War Against the NRA San Francisco Politics nra North Carolina Guns gun rights gun control Front Page Stories Front Page First Amendment Featured Story Featured Post democrats Culture California Allow Media Exception 2nd Amendment 2A 1st amendment

Last month, streiff wrote about a resolution passed by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors that formally declared the NRA a “domestic terrorist organization.”

The resolution was inspired by the mass shooting in Gilroy, CA on July 28th that killed 3 and wounded 17. Though the NRA had nothing to do with the shooting, the Second Amendment-defending organization is a frequent whipping boy for Democrats when mass shootings happen.

They responded to the resolution by suing the city, county and the supervisors on First Amendment grounds:

The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against the city and county of San Francisco and the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. It accuses city officials of violating the gun lobby’s free speech rights for political reasons and claims the city is trying to blacklist anyone associated with the NRA from doing business there.

A few weeks later, we find out that the city has decided to back down in its war on the group:

Mayor London Breed issued the advisory on Sept. 23, a few weeks after the Board of Supervisors passed a resolution labeling the NRA a “domestic terrorist organization” and calling on the city to take steps to assess possible ties between its contractors and the organization.

In a memo co-written by the city attorney, Breed wrote that the board can only enact new contracting requirements by ordinance. Resolutions have no legal weight.

In a desperate bid to save face, city officials say the NRA misinterpreted what the resolution actually said:

John Cote, spokesman for the city attorney’s office, said the resolution was never intended to change any laws.

“If the NRA thinks this is a win, it’s only because their lawsuit completely distorts what the resolution actually does,” he said.
[…]
[Supervisor Catherine Stefani] said Tuesday that the resolution did not direct the city to assess contracting practices.

Cote and Stefani are both being dishonest (surprise). The resolution clearly states what the objective was:

FURTHER RESOLVED, That the City and County of San Francisco should take every reasonable step to assess the financial and contractual relationships our vendors and contractors have with this domestic terrorist organization; and, be it

FURTHER RESOLVED, That the City and County of San Francisco should take every reasonable step to limit those entities who do business with the City and County of San Francisco from doing business with this domestic terrorist organization; and be it

FURTHER RESOLVED, That the City and County of San Francisco should encourage all other jurisdictions, including other cities, states, and the federal government, to adopt similar positions.

Resolutions are indeed typically more symbolic than binding, but this one was not written like that.

It’s not clear the NRA knew the resolution by its nature was essentially toothless. But what is clear is that any attempt the city makes in the near future to pass an actual ordinance on this matter will likely be met with the same response.

Are We Seeing the End to the Domination of Mainstream Culture by the “Woke” SJW Crowd?

Westlake Legal Group hillary-supporter-screaming-SCREENSHOT-620x348 Are We Seeing the End to the Domination of Mainstream Culture by the “Woke” SJW Crowd? Woke Culture Todd Phillips Television Social Media Social Justice Warrior Social Justice SJW Popular Culture Politics Media Mainstream Media Joker Hollywood Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump Culture Carson King cancel culture Bill Maher Allow Media Exception
Social justice infected everything from movies and the news media, to corporations and universities. No matter where you turned, you were getting preached to about morals by the last people on Earth who should be telling us what our morals should be.

While many vehemently resisted the nonsensical jabbering of the social justice warriors, the fact is that between the mobs and their media support, many suffered as a result. Hollywood stars, comedians, or even YouTube personalities who stepped out of the “woke” crowd’s arbitrary lines were summarily destroyed by the mob and their new complicit news media.

Drunk on their power, they helped create “cancel culture,” which got so out of hand that even doing something good for sick children prompted reporters to begin looking into your social media past for sins as one Iowa man recently found.

(READ: Iowa “Beer Money” Charity Guy, Carson King, Gets The Last Laugh Despite Media Attempts To Destroy Him)

Among these problems comes the fact that the creativity of many artists had to be silenced in the face of fears that what they create would make the wrong people angry. Think of all the movies, television shows, and comedy specials that we didn’t get to see because artists were too afraid to create honestly. The only thing seemingly allowed to happen was art that promoted the ideas of the social justice crowd.

And then Dave Chapell’s comedy special “Sticks and Stones” happened and something shifted.

Chappell’s standup special was a falling domino that subsequently began the collapse of other dominoes. Other comedians and artists began speaking out here and there. Bill Burr also released a standup special that practically spit in the face of everything the SJW crowd held holy.

Recently, both director Todd Phillips of the upcoming movie Joker, and leftist comedian Bill Maher have openly lashed out at the “woke” crowd.

Phillips’ movie hasn’t even released yet, but it’s already gone through the gauntlet of SJW pearl-clutching with the hard-left claiming that it glorifies incel violence, and that it will cause white men to lash out. Phillips commented that the SJWs have killed comedy.

“Go try to be funny nowadays with this woke culture,” he said. “There were articles written about why comedies don’t work anymore—I’ll tell you why, because all the f***ing funny guys are like, ‘F**k this shit.”

Fascinatingly, his movie is already approaching a projected $80 million marker for October alone, likely thanks to controversy it caused within the SJW community and the spite many people tend to express whenever the “woke” crowd becomes outraged.

(READ: “Joker” Director Todd Phillips Smacks Social Justice Warriors And Their PC Culture)

Maher was not kind at all in his description of the “woke” crowd and suggested Democrats push them out if they ever want to win an election again.

“They don’t do anything,” said Maher. “They’re pointing at other people who are somehow falling short of their standards, which could have changed three weeks ago. They’re constantly moving the goalposts so they can go, “Gotcha!””

(READ: Leftist Comedian Bill Maher Calls For The Rejection Of Radical Fringe Democrats, Bashes PC Culture)

It was just a few months ago that nobody in the industry would dare say such a thing for fear of the Twitter mob, yet here they are saying it in spite of them. It would seem that, slowly but surely, the people are learning that the SJW crowd is far worse in their bark than they are their bite, and the fear of them is starting to dissipate.

This is only good news, as a rejection of the social justice warrior code of “ethics” would prompt a reawakening of a substantial culture. People will be able to create with far more confidence and not worry about the consequences of breaking some nebulous rules set by people who change the rules all the time.

Personally, I can’t wait to see what’s created.

While it’s still early to say that SJW dominance over the mainstream will disappear to a great extent, we’re currently seeing a building momentum for it, and it’s coming straight from the American people.

While Chappell may have been the pebble to begin the avalanche, the pebble was moved by a populace that was sick of the tyrannical hold the social justice advocates had on our culture. There were many indications, but some of the major ones were obvious.

The increasing popularity of Chick-fil-A in spite of the left’s war against it.

The crashing ratings of leftist cable news networks, preachy Hollywood award shows, and politically injected NFL games.

The embrace of the citizen journalist and commentators and distrust of mainstream journalists.

But the biggest and most in your face clue was the election of Donald Trump in 2016. While many things played a factor in his win against Hillary Clinton, a societal rejection of the social justice warrior culture was definitely among them. It’s the reason he’ll be reelected in 2020, and judging by the Democrat’s desperation to find any way to kick him out of office before the election, I’d say they know it too.

People are continuously showing the mainstream media and its leftist cohorts that we don’t want what they’re selling. Until Chappell, most people within the mainstream media weren’t getting it.

Now they do. Now they’re speaking out.

There’s still a long way to go before many in the mainstream spotlight shake off the shackles and begin creating honestly again, but I can confidently say that we’re on the way now. There’s going to be pushback, outrage, screaming, mob action, and attempts to use cancel culture, but the SJWs greatest weapon is also their greatest weakness.

Every time they act they only hasten the end of their ideology being a mainstream affair, and like a lightbulb, they’ll burn bright before they go out, but rest assured, they’re going out.

And good riddance.

The SJWs have been the largest drag on our culture and caused a massive devolution of society that we’re going to be making up for years to come. Children who have been abused by them through trendy gender theories will be forever scarred with the non-scientific treatments by adults they were unlucky enough to fall under the “protection” of. Corporations are going to have to learn the hard way that obeying the SJW crowd is far more punishing than ignoring them.

It’ll be a lot of repairing damages, but I’d rather do that than continue to see our culture suffer under this asinine rule by what amount to grown children.

Kamala Harris Is Burning Down

Out of all the Democratic candidates, there is perhaps none more inauthentic and grating as Kamala Harris. To be fair, she doesn’t have the shrillness of Hillary Clinton, but she has every other bad quality in spades. She can’t hold a consistent position, she’ll do anything for support, and everything she says sounds like it was focus grouped. None of those things are good descriptors to be attached to one’s campaign.

After being fluffed as the presumptive front runner following the first debate (which I called a sucker’s bet at the time), Tulsi Gabbard kneecapped Harris in the second debate and she has never recovered. Since then, it’s been a steady stream of desperation from her campaign.

Things like this.

These are what you call publicity stunts. Her campaign is hemorrhaging cash, the donors have dried up, and she’s old news to the media.

But now things are getting even worse. Her campaign is literally breaking down.

The upper levels of her campaign staff are being changed up and she’s bringing over people from the Senate side to try to rescue her.

California Sen. Kamala Harris plans to restructure her struggling presidential campaign, sources with knowledge of the staffing plans tell CNN.

The changes represent the clearest sign to date that Harris, who has seen her poll numbers consistently fall over the last three months, feels changes are needed to jumpstart her presidential bid and streamline an operation that one source said has been been bogged down by bureaucratic hurdles.

Harris will elevate Rohini Kosoglu, her Senate chief of staff, and senior adviser Laphonza Butler into senior leadership positions within the campaign, the sources said, splitting responsibilities for the day to day management of the operation.

Here’s the problem though – It’s Kamala Harris.

It’s not her staff that are failing here. They’ve actually run a fairly typical campaign and done well with fundraising and managing of funds. But as Harris has fallen from glory, they’ve been put in a position where they can’t win. No amount of staff shake up is going to save her now. Her campaign is the walking dead at this point.

Harris is the worst kind of Democrat. At least Bernie Sanders is honest about who he is. Harris, on the other hand, will tell you three different things within the course of a day. She grandstands in hearings to try to get media coverage while often beclowning herself in the process. Things like trying to impeach Brett Kavanaugh and begging Twitter to ban Trump are just the latest examples of a campaign built on nothing of substance.

I don’t know who becomes the nominee for the Democrats in 2020. I do know it’s not going to be Harris, and that’s a good thing.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders: The Whistleblower Complaint Is Irrelevant

Sarah Huckabee Sanders appeared on Fox News Tuesday to discuss the current impeachment circus and why she thinks there is no “there” there.

Sanders pointed out that not only do the transcripts show there was no quid pro quo, it is very telling that Nancy Pelosi announced her impeachment inquiry before she even had any information.

Every member of the call would report back to this individual. That sounds quite high to me and something that I would be shocked if that was correct. Again, I think that the whistleblower’s complaint at this point is really irrelevant because we have the transcript and we can see there was nothing inappropriate about the call, there was no quid pro quo. The President was acting as he should have. And I think the biggest thing here to look at is the fact that Nancy Pelosi made her impeachment inquiry announcement prior to ever having any information. That should be looked into. That shows, I think, the true nature of what this is. It’s all about politics.

Wishful impeaching?

Bad News for Warren: Mark Zuckerberg Calls Her Policies an Existential Threat

Westlake Legal Group warren Bad News for Warren: Mark Zuckerberg Calls Her Policies an Existential Threat warren Social Media Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story facebook Elizabeth Warren democrats Congress Campaigns 2020 campaign 2020

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has been supportive of Democratic candidates in the past and liberal candidates.

But there’s one Democratic candidate who he doesn’t view as a good choice, at least not for Facebook.

According to audio leaked by The Verge, Zuckerberg revealed that the company would probably sue the government, if Warren were to win the presidency and try to break up Facebook. He termed Warren as an “existential” threat.

From Fox News:

“You have someone like Elizabeth Warren thinks that the right answer is to break up the companies … I mean, if she gets elected president then I would bet that we will have a legal challenge, and I would bet that we will win the legal challenge,” Zuckerberg was quoted as saying in two Q&A sessions with Facebook employees during July.

“And does that still suck for us? Yeah. I mean, I don’t want to have a major lawsuit against our own government. I mean, that’s not the position that you want to be in when you’re, you know, I mean … It’s like, we care about our country, and want to work with our government and do good things. But look, at the end of the day, if someone’s going to try to threaten something that existential, you go to the mat and fight.”

Zuckerberg acknowledged that the comments were indeed his and encouraged people to read all his comments on the subject.

Warren has promised to try to break up Big Tech companies if she is elected, including companies like that Facebook, Google, Amazon and Apple.

She reiterated that promise after Zuckerberg’s comments about her were revealed.

The problem is that while she’s disturbed about the companies’ control of the tech, she would replace it with the government’s control and dictating rules for social media. Government control would be far worse.

Zuckerberg’s opinion reveals part of the great Democratic divide on Warren.

While she has adherents on the left, those more toward the middle and any remaining Democrats receptive to business and desirous of keeping their own money are very uneasy about her.

Some big donors have even said that if she gets the nomination, they may defect to President Donald Trump.

From CNBC:

In recent weeks, CNBC spoke to several high-dollar Democratic donors and fundraisers in the business community and found that this opinion was becoming widely shared as Warren, an outspoken critic of big banks and corporations, gains momentum against Joe Biden in the 2020 race.

“You’re in a box because you’re a Democrat and you’re thinking, ‘I want to help the party, but she’s going to hurt me, so I’m going to help President Trump,’” said a senior private equity executive, who spoke on condition of anonymity in fear of retribution by party leaders.

That could spell ruin for her campaign and the Democrats.

Colbert and Clinton Obsess Over Trump on Late Show, Chant “Lock Him Up” and Talk About Hitting Him in the Mouth

It was a night of “lock him up” chants and relentless “orange man bad” sentiment on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night as both Hillary and Chelsea Clinton appeared on the show.

The Clinton women are releasing a book called “The Book of Gutsy Women,” but before they could begin talking about it, Colbert was already lining up other important topics, such as how bad orange man actually is with all this Ukraine stuff. Clinton was ready to go with the Trump-bashing.

“So, here we are, and we have started an impeachment inquiry, which will look at the evidence, and I think that’s exactly what should be done,” Clinton said. “I believe strongly that this particular incident has had such a huge impact because we’ve known for a long time that he was a corrupt businessman who cheated people, and we’ve known that he and his campaign asked for aid from Russia. We’ve known that. But to see him in the Office of the President, putting his own personal and political interests ahead of the national security of our country, just pierced through whatever confusion or denial people had. And at that point, Speaker Pelosi rightly said this is something we have to investigate. And that’s what’s going on.”

Just a quick reminder, while Trump is no perfect angel, he’s been found innocent when it came to working with Russia, and the position of the left about the phone call to a Ukrainian president has been summed up best by Sen. Lindsey Graham when he called it “insane.”

Colbert made the wild claim that, while he was never a fan of impeachment and would rather rely on the ballot box, Trump is making the ballot box no good. Clinton agreed, saying the founders put impeachment in the rules for people like Trump.

Oddly enough — and no one can fathom why — neither Joe or Hunter Biden’s involvement in this entire affair was brought up. Colbert did, however, ask Chelsea how it feels to have Trump so obsessed with attacking her mother, and asking if she wanted to “slap his mouth.”

Chelsea said she does feel the need to protect her because of what she’s seen at Trump’s rallies.

The interview goes on like this for some time, with Colbert bringing up one leftist media talking about after another. If they had wheeled out a punching bag with Trump’s face on it, it would have saved a lot of time.

For some people who think Trump is obsessed with Clinton, they sure seem obsessed with Trump.

Interestingly enough, having Clinton on put Colbert ahead of the other two late-night hosts in terms of ratings. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon’s numbers combined equaled out to Colbert’s ratings:

In late night, an appearance by Hillary and Chelsea Clinton gave CBS’ Late Show With Stephen Colbert its highest-ever overnight ratings for a Monday show. It drew a 3.2 household rating in metered markets, equaling the combined ratings for Jimmy Kimmel Live (1.7) and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon (1.5).

Clinton’s sudden boost in eyes may have a lot to do with rumors floating around that she may announce her candidacy for the 2020 Democratic primary for a second shot at Trump.
