‘Look who’s afraid of impeachment’: Internet ridicules Trump for pretending he wants to participate in hearings

Published

on

President Donald Trump’s White House counsel announced Sunday that Trump will not participate in the Judiciary Committee hearings on impeachment Wednesday. Trump has complained for weeks that the process is illegitimate because he can’t participate, yet when given the opportunity to have what he wants, he prefers to complain instead.

Just two weeks ago, Sen. Thom Tillis (R-NC) ranted on FoxNews.com that there was “no quid pro quo” and that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) made her decision to impeach before Trump released the damning summary of his July 25 call with Ukraine in which he asked for a “favor” if he was to give the country an arms package.

"I was very nice to Mayor de Blasio. I got him ventilators when he needed them... I got him the gowns. I got him the masks. I got him everything. Then he throws a big Black Lives Matter sign right down in the middle of Fifth Avenue. I was so good to him and to Gov. Cuomo, like nobody's ever been good.
