Nancy Pelosi went on late-night TV to discuss impeachment last night. It was a gag-worthy performance.
Pelosi appeared on Stephen Colbert when he asked her what she first thought about that phone call between President Trump and the President of Ukraine.
Colbert introduces Pelosi by saying her next project is impeaching the President of the United States. Not funny.
The exchange is all a set up where Pelosi giggles and then gets serious when describing how they really don’t want to have to do this but they have to. It’s political theater made for the low information voter. Sickening!
Colbert asked Pelosi: “When you heard what was in that telephone call, what was your first reaction? What were the first words that came out of your mouth? And we can bleep them if need be.”
Pelosi answered with her usual reference to prayer, patriotism, and the Constitution. After decades of this scam, she knows what works for the low information voter:
I prayed for the United States of America. Really, because it’s a really sad thing. We don’t want to impeach a president, we don’t want the reality that a president has done something that is in violation of the Constitution. But it was more about — so much had happened before — and I had not been, enthusiastic about the divisiveness that would occur from an impeachment. Weighing the equities, I had said then, “he’s not worth impeaching” because it’s going to divide the country further that he had already divided. But, this was something that you could not ignore.
In one conversation, he undermined our national security, by withholding military assistance to a country that had been voted on by the Congress of the United States to the benefit of the Russians. At the same time, he jeopardized the integrity of our elections, the heart of our democracy. And in doing so, in my view, he possibly violated his oath of office, to protect, defend, and preserve the Constitution of the United States.
