The official Twitter of account of the Republican National Committee was buried in mockery after hyping up a video of anti-impeachment protesters in Youngstown, Ohio, where it appears only a handful of people showed up.
According to the tweet, “Ohioans are sick and tired of the Democrats’ impeachment charade. It’s time to STOP THE MADNESS!”
However, in the video from WKBN, which can be seen below, few people chose to show up for the cameras.
As one commenter noted with tongue-in-cheek, “Thought Ohio had a few more people than that.”
That was the general consensus in the comments.

Announcer: “The video department was angry that the wide angle lens they ordered hadn’t arrived in time to film the big rally. Lucky for them, they didn’t need it.”

That’s even worse if they can’t even stage something more convincing then that.

Mike Pompeo’s meltdown during interview over Ukraine questions was ‘not the first time’: report
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo screamed at NPR “All Things Considered” co-host Mary Louise Kelly for asking questions about Ukraine during an interview.
Pompeo has been implicated in the abuse of power and obstruction of Congress scandal for which Trump is being impeached.
The Trump administration cabinet official reportedly "cursed at her, dropping f-bombs, made her point to Ukraine on an unmarked map (she did)," according to NPR host Lulu Garcia-Navarro.
Tulsi Gabbard’s $50 million lawsuit against Hillary Clinton exposes exactly why she is not the leader America needs
U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), a lower-tier presidential candidate with high aspirations, announced she is suing former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for $50 million after the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee said Russia is grooming "somebody who’s currently in the Democratic primary" for a third-party run, and reportedly called that person, "a favorite of the Russians" and "totally" a "Russian asset." It does not appear Clinton ever named Gabbard directly.
Trump impeachment defense team may be forced to change tactics to hold off GOP defections: report
According to a report from Axios, Donald Trump's defense team is considering an attempt to shorten the president's Senate trial in order to get it over quickly as Democrats try to pry away Republican defectors.
The report states that "A truncated defense would likely reflect a decision not to contest facts or defend Trump point by point, but rather to try to diminish the legitimacy of Democrats' overall case and end the trial as quickly as possible."
Speaking with reporters, Trump attorney Jay Sekulow stated, "We’re not going to try to run the clock out," before adding that he hopes to wrap up “Saturday or Monday or Tuesday."
