Donald Trump held a press conference of sorts in New York City. He did what he does, saying everyone else should be impeached, not him. After gaslighting away a bit about how Joe and Hunter Biden are the people who should be investigated concerning the Ukraine, MSNBC’s Nicole Wallace broke in to shut off the methane coming out of Trump’s mouth.


WALLACE:  We hate to do this, really, but the president isn't telling the truth. These allegations against Joe Biden and Hunter Biden that he has been repeating have been investigated by the Ukrainians. None other than the Wall Street Journal included in their report, on Friday, that the Ukrainians view this issue as having been investigated and adjudicated, and what’s amazing is that what Trump appears to be trying to do is to turn his own impeachment into a big deflection.

It’s refreshing to have Trump’s only power, his complete lack of shame, morality, and conscience, muzzled—even if it was only for a few minutes. Trump, of course was responding to the long-awaited announcement that the legislative branch of our government will uphold its sworn oath to both check and balance what has always been a garbage fire of corruption and illegality in the Trump White House.

With the Ukraine investigation, Trump once again is trying to get out of a hole his stupid mouth has put him in. He stands accused of what he has always been accused of: breaking laws due to his pathetic need to try and rig everything (including golf!), all in the hopes of convincing the world and himself that he isn’t one of the largest cosmic wastes of space the universe has ever seen.
