“Late Night” comedian Seth Meyers summed up the day of hearings by saying it was devastating to President Donald Trump. If you don’t believe him, he showed the humiliating clip of Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) who looked dejected.
“Wow, look at his face!” Meyers said. “He looks like he just walked in on his parents having sex — with someone else’s parents. There’s only two explanations for that face, either he just heard lengthy testimony detailing a criminal scheme so shocking to bring down the presidency of Donald Trump. Or he sharted, and he’s trying to remember how far away his back-up pants are.”
EU Ambassador Gordon Sondland threw everyone under the bus. Meyers compared it to the scene in “Wizard of Oz” where Dorothy said, “and you, and you, and you were there!”
“Even the White House janitor was like, ‘Am I going to go to jail?'” Meyers joked.
The host went on to say that Republicans called witnesses that ultimately ended up working against them.
“It’d be like murdering someone and then calling their ghost as a witness,” Meyers joked.
The worst part of the GOP disaster is that they have to keep changing their stories. As Meyers noted, it first began with “There is no quid pro quo.” From there, it changed Tuesday too, “there’s a quid and a quo but not pro.” Finally, the GOP has settled on, “even if there was a quid pro quo, it’s not that bad, this is just how things are done — you can say it’s bad, but it’s not impeachable.”
But as Scarlett O’Hara proclaimed, “tomorrow is another day,” and if Wednesday was any indication, they will have another defense.

Here are 9 things you absolutely need to know about the 2020 Democratic primary race
If you’re a political junkie who’s been watching every twist and turn in the Democratic primary race since the day after the 2018 midterm results came–and if those in your social media circle are the same way–you’ve probably grown weary of the drawn-out campaign and wish people would start voting already. But keep in mind that many less engaged voters are just now beginning to tune in. Historically, early-state primary polls have only begun to have predictive value after Thanksgiving. That make sense when you consider that most people don’t pick out their Halloween costumes in May or June.
Trump in 2014 fantasized about Obama falling apart emotionally if he got impeached: ‘He’d be a mess!’
President Donald Trump has been angrily obsessing over House impeachment hearings -- just like he imagined former President Barack Obama would do if Republicans impeached him back in 2014.
Media Matters this week dug up an old "Fox & Friends" interview with Trump in which he mused over whether Obama secretly wanted to be impeached to boost his poll numbers, similar to what happened with former President Bill Clinton in the 1990s.
Lawyers use belief in Trump far-right conspiracy theories for murder suspect’s insanity defense
In the age of Trump, far-right conspiracy theories have gripped a large section of his base, birthing one of the most convoluted and bizarre rumors to date, namely the QAnon conspiracy theory -- which details a complicated and sometimes nonsensical plot by the "Deep State" against Trump and his supporters.
While most people regurgitate this particular brand of paranoia from behind their keyboards, some have been driven to commit acts of violence after being radicalized online, one example being a 29-year-old North Carolina man whose belief in "Pizza Gate" prompted him to walk into a D.C. pizzeria in 2016 and open fire with an assault weapon, believing he was rescuing children held hostage by a Hillary Clinton-run child sex trafficking ring.
