Perennially obsessed with television ratings, President Donald Trump is furious his lawyers in the Senate impeachment trial have to defend him on Saturday, when America’s less likely to tune in to the circus.
“After having been treated unbelievably unfairly in the House, and then having to endure hour after hour of lies, fraud & deception by Shifty Schiff, Cryin’ Chuck Schumer & their crew, looks like my lawyers will be forced to start on Saturday, which is called Death Valley in T.V.,” he complained via Twitter on Friday morning.
As a former reality TV magnate, Trump knows that Saturday is considered to be the “graveyard slot” in the entertainment world.
And to anyone who might say his reactions to the impeachment proceedings have been volatile or unhinged, Trump insisted that it’s really the Democrats who are the “deranged” ones.
More than anything else, the Radical Left, Do Nothing Democrats, like AOC, Omar, Cryin’ Chuck, Nervous Nancy & Shifty Schiff, are angry & “deranged” over the fact that Republicans are up to 191 Federal Judges & Two Great New Supreme Court Justices. Don’t blame me, blame Obama!
