‘Embarrassed you’re my senator’: Joni Ernst torn to shreds for whining about Dem impeachment inquiry

Published

on

Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) on Thursday bitterly complained about House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump — and was quickly torn to pieces by some angry Iowans.

“Republicans are now refusing to answer the simplest question: whether it’s acceptable for a president to pressure foreign countries to undermine our elections,” Pelosi wrote. “American elections should be decided by Americans, not by ‘favors’ from foreign governments.”

Ernst subsequently fired back at Pelosi by accusing her of using impeachment to invalidate the results of the 2016 presidential election and then shamed her for not passing the president’s trade deal with Canada and Mexico.

Ernst’s followers, including many of her fellow Iowans, absolutely let her have it in several scathing replies.

Check out some of the responses below.

She spoke in an interview with AFP on the eve of her departure from North America where she has spent almost three months.

"He's so extreme and he says so extreme things, so I think people wake up by that in a way," the 16-year-old said from on board a sailboat preparing to depart from the East Coast town of Hampton, Virginia for Europe early Wednesday.

"I thought when he got elected, now people will finally, now people must finally wake up," she continued.

Trump praises ‘amazing warrior’ Sean Hannity for saying impeachment hearings are a ‘phony showtrial’

Published

on

President Donald Trump thanked Fox News personality Sean Hannity for his over-the-top defense the evening before impeachment hearings begin.

According to Trump's quoting, Hannity said Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was a, "corrupt, compromised, coward and congenital liar."

Hannity called the Schiff's Intelligence Committee hearings a "phony showtrial" -- despite the reality that an impeachment trial would occur in the GOP-controlled Senate.

Still, Hannity lashed out at the inquiry as "another fraudulent hoax conspiracy theory" and "witch hunt."

Trump thanked, "Sean the amazing warrior!"
