Donald Trump admits to crimes and more during the ‘Saturday Night Live’ impeachment trial

Published

on

NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” took on President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial.

“After months of anticipation, the impeachment trial of President Trump wound up consisting of two weeks of dry debate and posturing and will now conclude without any witness testimony or new evidence,” the skit began. “For those hoping for more, here is … ‘The Trial You Wish Had Happened.'”

SNL then featured a court television-style trial of the leader of the free world.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) was featured and argued, “All men are innocent after being proven guilty.”

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) also made an appearance, along with Hunter Biden and Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA).

And the President himself, played by Alec Baldwin, testified after walking into court in a walker, as Harvey Weinstein had done.

“Ladies and gentlemen of this government place, what I’ve learned through this trial is that clearly nothing I do or say has any consequence, so I’d like to come clean about everything,” the president argued.

“The call with the Ukraine wasn’t perfect, it was illegal, and frankly it was a butt-dial,” Trump admitted.

“Also, I watch CNN all the time,” he continued. “And it’s awesome.”

“I hate the following states: Iowa, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Arkansas and West Virginia,” he noted.

“I cheat all the time at golf, taxes, wives, elections and bathroom scales,” he admitted. “I’m not 239 pounds, I’m 475 pounds.”

Eric Topol, a cardiologist and director of the Scripps Research Translational Institute in San Diego, minced absolutely zero words when asked to evaluate the Trump administration's response to the crisis.

"The American public doesn’t know that a large portion of this catastrophe was preventable, if not for the sinful incompetence of our leaders," he said. "It didn't have to be like this."

Published

on

Russian trolls recently have started hyping a mix of misinformation about the coronavirus and crazed conspiracy theories posted by Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani.

The Daily Beast reports that one of the trolls' main information operations revolves around blaming the United States Department of Defense for purportedly creating the coronavirus, even though all credible epidemiologists agree it originated in China.

"The story, posted to Russian-language blogs and Reddit by multiple fake personas, tries to pin the blame on the COVID-19 outbreak on the U.S. and Kazakhstan by casting the virus as the byproduct of a U.S. nonproliferation program in the country," the publication finds. "The trolls pointed to social media posts by a group of hackers calling themselves 'Anonymous Kazakhstan.'"
