Trump declares it was a ‘great day for the GOP’ — and is mercilessly ridiculed for his absurd claim

President Donald Trump responded to the end of the day's impeachment hearings by saying that it was a great day for the Republican Party and for the United States. There were many people who disagreed, however.


Every person who testified before Congress has said that Trump's obsession with Joe Biden was concerning enough to alert others. Even National Security Council aide Tim Morrison stressed that he didn’t believe there was anything inappropriate about the call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. But when Rep. Val Demmings (D-FL) asked him why then he felt the need to report it if there was nothing wrong, Morrison struggled to find an answer.

Republicans didn't have a good day when their own witnesses revealed that they don't believe Trump's conspiracy theory about former Vice President Joe Biden.

"I've known Joe Biden for 20 years. He is an honorable man and I hold him in the highest regard," former Ambassador Kurt Volker said, testifying for the GOP.

Former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) similarly had a tough time defending the president's conduct citing the witnesses that appeared today. Once he was shown to be a fool, he flew off the handle.

To make matters worse, Trump and the GOP started the day off by attacking a decorated Iraq War hero for daring to wear his uniform on The Hill. Members of the military are expected to wear their uniforms when they come to Capitol Hill in an official capacity. Republicans may recall retired Lt. Col. Oliver North appearing before Congress during the Iran-Contra dressed in his full uniform. It wasn't a good move for a president known as Captain Bone Spurs for dodging the Vietnam draft.

That certainly didn't go over well:
