Trump's GOP Defenders Are Backed Into A Corner

  • Published: 05 November 2019
  • Republicans like Sen. Ted Cruz are so desperate to find ways to defend his "perfect" Ukraine phone call that they are considering doing the unthinkable: admitting the truth. #Monologue #Impeachment #Colbert

    Just a minute - how can Republicans release their own transcripts of witness depositions. I thought they’d spent weeks telling us they were all held in secret - no Republicans allowed. Is Trump now suggesting that Republicans we’re lying to us.

    Surely, if there were Republicans who heard the depositions, given their only “defence” is to attack the process and the witnesses, they might have been only too happy to mention that the released transcripts were “doctored.”

    And how about the witnesses themselves who gave their depositions under oath. Wouldn’t they have said something if the transcripts released were different from the testimony they gave.

    The straws they are clinging on to are getting shorter abs greater but Trump really should stop with the projection. Just because he’s prepared to do it, or has done it, it doesn’t mean that everybody else does it.

      Trump grabbing the baseball player is somehow more awkward than Voldemort hugging Draco. I did not think that was possible.

                          I remember the first interview they did together from The Colbert Report. For some reason, it always stuck with me. I remember Tim made a joke about how Colbert pronounced his name, and straight off the cuff Stephen said something about how he dropped the T so he could donate them to hurricane relief. It was so random, but I loved that kind of banter from The Colbert Report.
