‘You lost’: Internet mocks Trump for cheering on ‘great vote’ — that Republicans lost

Published

on

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, read what he later described as a “parody” of President Donald Trump’s call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky on July 25. While Schiff apologized, Trump has called for his immediate impeachment.

Republicans sought to go after Schiff with a resolution for his censure while Schiff was outside of the United States. Generally, both parties refrain from trashing each other while they’re on foreign soil. Most recently, Pelosi was asked questions about Trump during a European visit to commemorate D-Day in Normandy.

Republicans like Newt Gingrich promoted the “dishonesty” of Schiff on Fox News while other far-right Republican House members attacked Shiff while he was out of the country. Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) similarly blasted Schiff.

Trump went on a tirade tweeting several posts from Republican members bashing Schiff. He called it a “great vote” — except he lost the vote.

It prompted a considerable backlash against Trump, Cheney, and a slew of other Republicans online. You can see the best tweets below.

House Republicans have 3 key defenses of Trump’s Ukraine extortion campaign — and they’re all terrible

Published

on

To any halfway objective observer, the first day of public hearings in House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry, which are ongoing as of this writing, have not gone well for Trump’s defenders.

Bill Taylor, the top US ambassador in Kyiv, and veteran State Department official George Kent came off as principled and non-partisan as they delivered damning testimony about the Trump regime’s multifaceted campaign to coerce the Ukrainian government to announce an investigation into fringe right-wing conspiracy theories designed to deflect blame for interfering in the 2016 election from Russia and onto Ukraine.

Progressives hilariously ridicule Donald Trump Jr.’s new book with their own Trump triggers #TriggerDonaldTrumpJr

Published

on

President Donald Trump's eldest child and namesake has published a book about liberals he says are "triggered" by conservatives. Ironically, it seems Donald Trump Jr. is the one who seems to be triggered by the reception he's getting from some on his book tour.

The hashtag, #TriggerDonaldTrumpJr has nothing to do with Jr's new book, rather it's progressives using his book title to mock the Trump child. Internet users were torn between mocking the young Trump for desperately trying to get his father's attention, scrambling to seem relevant, trying to launch his own political career, trying to make his own money and so much more.

Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, Rep. Devin Nunes of California and other House Republicans were clearly trying to rally the Trumpian base on Wednesday, when the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump offered its first public testimony. Jordan and Nunes aggressively tried to discredit the inquiry and the two witnesses who testified: diplomat William B. Taylor (U.S. ambassador to Ukraine) and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George P. Kent. But conservative Washington Post opinion writer Jennifer Rubin, in a Wednesday column, stressed that House Republicans — for all their “antics and conspiracy theories” — failed to show why Trump shouldn’t be impeached, while House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff and other House Democrats showed why he should.
