Nancy Pelosi may want to stick to her sanctimonious guns and claim that her pursuit of impeachment is not driven by hatred for Donald Trump despite evidence to the contrary. But House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, in a rare moment of candor, admitted to hating the president. Well actually it wasn’t total candor. When asked by a reporter for the New Yorker whether he hates Trump, Schiff said, “No, but I do hate what he is doing to the country.”
To punctuate just how much he hates what Trump is “doing to the country,” Schiff went on to flash a little potty mouth, telling the interviewer, “The President doesn’t give a sh*t about what’s good for our country, what’s good for Ukraine. It’s all about what’s in it for him personally and for his re-election campaign.”
Right. Maybe Schiff should worry more about what and his cronies in the House are “doing to the country.” Their impeachment circus is serving only to drive a deeper wedge among Americans. And what is the their motivation if it’s not fear that Trump will win a second term?
Meantime their strategy is backfiring. A new poll finds that Trump is beating all Democratic primary frontrunners in three key battleground states. Maybe that is because the residents of those states like what the president is “doing to the country.” Maybe they are fans of record unemployment and job growth, especially among minorities. And maybe they are unimpressed with Schiff’s one-sided impeachment puppet show, which also accounts for the decline in support for impeachment since the House hearings began.
