If the case against Trump is so very strong, why would anyone need to inject drama into the testimony? If the testimony needs drama, how weak is the case against him?
Does anyone still remember when the networks at least PRETENDED to be non-partisan?
On Meet The Press, David Ignatius had some coaching tips for how Dems could strengthen their hand in the impeachment effort:
“I think in those two segments, with Rand Paul and Jim Himes, we had a good snapshot of how difficult this is going to be for the – for the Democrats to convince the country that this is extraordinary behavior that disqualifies the President from office,” The Washington Post’s David Ignatius admitted. He also acknowledged that impeachment effort against President Trump looked “purely partisan.”
As a result, Ignatius eagerly offered advice to Democrats on how to change that image problem: “The one thing that will break through, I think, is if this can be dramatized so that our diplomats struggling against the President feel like soldiers in a battlefield, and their commander abandoned them.” He argued: “…if that gets through…It makes it a very different process.”
Moments later, PBS NewsHour correspondent Yamiche Alcindor seemed giddy as she touted the political strategy of Democrats:
I will say that Democrats are very, they’re very focused on how to tell the story this week. And I’m told, from Democratic aides, that they wanted Taylor to be there because he’s a Vietnam vet. He’s gonna be able to tell this story in a simple way. And they wanted Marie Yovanovitch there because I’m told she cried in her testimony, and they essentially want someone who’s going to be emotional to say, “I was a victim of the President trying to do this for his own political gain.”
Before the conversation concluded, Ignatius again noted the problems Democrats had with selling impeachment: “So, so their problem is that this is something complicated. And it gets more complicated with all the names and faraway events.” He then reiterated: “Again, if there’s a simple way to dramatize this, where, where these people sound like soldiers, fighting our fight for us, and they got undercut, then it’ll be different.”
Looks like Screenwriter Schiff has been busy with his next made-for-TV project.
Will it take the nation by storm, or be a flop?
It’s pretty clear from this context what outcome the networks are hoping for.
As for how this will really play out? Time will tell.
We’ve all seen the dishonest games the left have played with the power they’re entrusted with, they’re obviously unworthy of that trust.
But what about 2020? Could a moral person pull a lever for Trump with their integrity intact? Would Jesus himself vote for Trump? We’re glad you asked. There’s a brand new book that covers precisely that question:
“Would Jesus Vote For Trump?” by Doug Giles and Brandon Vallorani.
Would Jesus ever choose someone, with a less than stellar past, to be a leader? Would Jesus be cool with how Trump blasts CNN, The Left, and his feckless ‘compadres’ on The Right? What about Health Care? Would the Great Physician give Trump’s opposition to ObamaCare the ‘two thumbs up?’ Find out in this BEST-SELLER!
