Republicans, Losing Impeachment Fight, Call Democrats “Dumb”: A Closer Look

Republicans, Losing Impeachment Fight, Call Democrats “Dumb”: A Closer Look


-Republicans are standing
by President Trump, even after major election losses and bombshell testimony and, now, they’re
calling Democrats dumb. For more on this,
it’s time for “A Closer Look.” [ Suspenseful theme plays ]
[ Cheering and applause ] Donald Trump is nothing, if not a pioneer
of the English language. You might think
he’s just making up words or doesn’t know how to read,
but that is not the case. You see,
Trump doesn’t make errors. He makes discoveries. He’s like a scholar. [ Laughter ]
Spends all night scouring obscure, 15th-century
medieval texts, looking for previously
unknown words. [as Trump] Eureka!
I found it! Lawmakers used to be called… -Lawmarkers. [ Laughter ]
-And, recently, recently, Dr. Trump has made yet another [ Laughter ]
profound linguistic discovery. He’s invented a new,
powerful word that he loves so much,
he’s now used it twice at two different rallies
in the span of one week. -First, they engineered
the Russia hoax. That was a total hoax. The single greatest lies ever foistered [ Laughter ]
upon the American people. Then, it was Mueller. Remember Mueller,
with that hoax? [ Crowd booing ] The biggest lie ever foistered [ Laughter ]
upon the American people. -That’s right, foistered. [ Laughter ]
He sounds like Daffy Duck trying to say “faster.” [as Daffy] Foister, foister! [ Laughter ]
The Democrats are after us! [ Cheering and applause ]
Trump is surrounded, surrounded by so many sycophants
that no one was willing to tell him
foistered is not a word, [ Laughter ]
so he used it twice. Soon, his underlings are
gonna to start using it, too. [as official]
This administration is moving foister and foister
[ Laughter ] than any administration
in history, but we’re being stonewalled
by Democratic lawmarkers! [ Laughter ] Trump’s not the only linguistic
genius in the GOP this week. GOP Senator Lindsey Graham
went on Fox News twice to talk about the
impeachment inquiry. Now, Graham was asked
about testimony from one of Trump’s
handpicked ambassadors, a guy named Gordon Sondland, who donated $1 million
to Trump’s inaugural committee. This week, Sondland admitted
that there was a quid pro quo to get Ukraine
to investigate the company that employed Joe Biden’s son
Hunter Biden. That company was called Burisma, and, yet,
Graham couldn’t pronounce either the name Burisma
or the name Sondland. -There was concern that
the prosecutor was getting too close to Hunter Biden, that people from Bearmoosa,
whatever the name [ Laughter ]
of the company, a conversation with Sunderland. Now, here’s a question: Why did Sunderland
change his testimony? Was there a connection
between Sunderland and Democratic operatives
on the committee? It makes me incredil–
incredibly suspicious. Why did Sunderland
change his mind? -You think he’s in cahoots
with the Democrats? You’re not even in cahoots
with your own mouth. [ Laughter ]
Trump and Graham sound like two guys leavin’ a bar
at 4:00 am, arguing who should dive home. [as Trump]
Give me the keys. You’re too foistered to drive. [as Graham] No. Why? No. Why? We need a r–
I’ll call Sunderland. [ Laughter and applause ]
He’ll pick us up in his Chevy Buhroozmuh. [ Laughter ] Also, verbal slipups aside, you think one of Trump’s
handpicked ambassadors, a guy who, again, gave him
$1 million to his campaign, is in cahoots
with the Democrats? These guys are such
paranoid freaks, they’re gonna start accusing
everyone of bein’ against them. [as Trump]
Who’s the whistleblower? Is it you, Rudy? What’s that around your neck? [as Giuliani]
Oh, no! Oh, no! I thought this was
my lucky necklace! [ Laughter ] And, yet, despite the fact
that these guys can barely get two-syllable words
out of their own mouths, they’re actually accusing
Democrats of being stupid. Last night, during Trump’s
rally in Louisiana, Senator John Kennedy brought up the impeachment
inquiry and said this… -And you know what our Democrats
friends have done for him?! [ Crowd shouting ] Speaker Nancy Pelosi
is trying to impeach him! [ Booing ] I don’t mean any disrespect, but it must suck
to be that dumb! [ Laughter ]
-I think you did mean some disrespect. I’m sorry, she’s dumb? You don’t get
to call anyone dumb when you sound like a cross between Gomer Pyle
and Foghorn Leghorn. [ Laughter and applause ]
[ Scat sings as Kennedy ] [ Cheering and applause ]
[ Continues scat singing ] [ Cheering ]
I mean, again, I don’t how can you be
so judgmental. The dude you’re standing next to
thinks foistered is a real word [ Laughter ]
and can’t even spell his own name.
That’s real. [ Laughter ] That is from a tweet
Trump wrote himself. You know how you get points
on your SATs just for writing down your name? Trump would be
the first student in history to get a score back that said,
“Maybe college isn’t for you.” [ Laughter ]
That same Kennedy’s also defended Trump
during the impeachment inquiry by saying that, even if there
was a quid pro quo with Ukraine, Trump didn’t intend
to break any laws. Kennedy said in an interview,
“To me, it all turns on intent motive. Did the president have
a culpable state of mind? Based on the evidence
that I see, that I’ve been allowed to see,
the president does not have a culpable state of mind.”
[ Laughter ] That’s because he doesn’t
have any state of mind. [ Laughter ]
His mind is empty. If Trump took a meditation class
and the instructor said, “First, begin
by clearing your mind,” Trump would immediately shout… [as Trump] Done.
I did it. Mind cleared. [ Laughter ]
Empty head cavern. So these guys think
there’s a shadowy conspiracy against them and they
think Democrats are dumb for pursuing impeachment, despite the fact that a majority
of Americans support it. In fact, these guys are so
out of touch with reality that, when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi first announced the impeachment
inquiry in November, Trump himself argued that it
would actually be good for him. -I just heard
that she’d like to impeach and, I mean, if she does that, they all say that’s a positive
for me, from the election. -Oh, do they all say that? [ Laughter ]
When you say they, do you mean your other personalities?
[ Fresh laughter ] [as Trump] Scared Trump
says it’s bad. Sassy Trump says it’s good and Nerdy Trump says bazinga. [ Laughter ] So Trump said impeachment
would actually be good for him politically
and, yet, on Tuesday, Republicans saw major losses
in Virginia; and Kentucky, where a Democrat
won the governor’s race in a state Trump won
by 30 points. Now, to be clear, Kentucky’s
incumbent Republican governor, Matt Bevin, was one of the most unpopular governors
in the country. He fought with teachers
and tried to gut Medicaid. Overturned an executive order
restoring felon voting rights and he tried to implement
work requirements for Medicaid recipients. And I would just like to say,
if we’re gonna start instituting work requirements
for federal programs, maybe we should start
with the presidency. I mean, Trump is always golfing.
[ Laughter ] He never works. He’s like
that friend everyone has who’s always posting photos
from exotic locations, but when you ask him what he
does for a living, he’s like, “Uh, well, I’m workin’ on an app
that tells you which Starbucks
has the best bathrooms. [ Laughter ]
Yeah, it’s called — it’s called Starbutts. [ Laughter and applause ] So Bevin’s defeat —
[ Applause ] Bevin’s defeat was a rejection,
not just of Trump, but of the GOP agenda on issues
like healthcare and education. But the race was also
very much about impeachment. In fact, a source close
to Trump even admitted the GOP losses on Tuesday
were a bad sign, both for Trump’s
reelection campaign and the impeachment inquiry. -A source close
to the White House told CNN the results were totally bad. Kentucky and Virginia
signaled to the GOP they are underestimating
voter intensity against Trump and it could be terrible
for them next year. Bad omen for impeachment. -You guys really needed an omen to tell you things
were not looking good? [ Laughter ]
Republicans are like
Ancient Egyptians trying to predict the seasons. “The air is cooling.
What could it mean? We must look to the stars
for a sign.” [ Laughter, cheering,
and applause ] Ammit. And, what’s worse —
[ Applause ] what’s worse for Republicans is they have
no credible defense. They’re flailing.
In fact, yesterday, an MSNBC reporter caught up to Republican
Congressman Mark Meadows, a staunch Trump ally. Meadows was desperate to prove
that Republicans were not losing
the impeachment fight. -Hold on.
We have Mark Meadows right here. Congressman Meadows,
can we talk live? So he’s walking by right now,
but Republicans are really struggling
to defend -I’ll talk to you.
-the president — Okay. Great. -We’re not struggling
on anything. -Okay, so Congressman —
-So, the Republicans are not struggling on anything. [ Laughter ]
-He’s like a guy who’s too proud to admit he doesn’t
know how to swim. [as Meadows]
I’m not drownin’. Do not throw me
a life preserver. I love the taste of salt water. I think I can see
my grandmother. [ Laughter ] Also, can we hear that clip
again, with the tire screeching? -Congressman Meadows,
can we talk live? So he’s walking by right now,
but Republicans are really struggling to defend
[ Tire screeches ] [ Laughter ]
the president — Okay. Great. -Struggling on anything.
-Okay. -And, now,
[ Applause ] [ Cheering ]
even Trump’s own appointees — [ Applause ] Trump’s own appointees
are admitting there was a quid pro quo
with Ukraine, so Republicans are changing
their argument again. Yesterday, Lindsey Graham,
the guy who couldn’t even pronounce the name
of one of the key witnesses, said Trump couldn’t
have orchestrated a quid pro quo with Ukraine
because he is too incompetent. -What I can tell you about the
Trump policy toward the Ukraine: It was incoherent. It depends on who you talk to. They seem to be incapable
of forming a quid pro quo. -So they can’t be criminals
because they’re stupid. [ Laughter ]
It is not good when your defense is also a confession. No version of that is good. Either they broke the law
or they’re morons. It’s like if a cop
pulled you over and said, “Do you know the speed limit?” And you responded,
“Of course not. I’m too drunk to read the sign.” [ Laughter ] So I guess what Graham
is saying is they would have committed
the crime, but they were too… -Dumb! [ Laughter ]
-This week should put to rest any speculation that impeachment
should somehow help trump. It should also reminds us
that the GOP agenda, on issues like healthcare,
education, and voting rights, is deeply unpopular. I don’t know what
will happen in 2020, but, so far,
Trump’s plans have been… -Foistered. [ Laughter ]
-This has been “A Closer Look.” ♪♪
[ Cheering and applause ]

  1. Hey asshole, I would like to see you say that joke in from southern accent people. Fucking asshole accents are just part of who we are.

  2. Look at the Dark-Skinded woman behind him and to his left, at the second Trump rally @1:10. What is she looking at, or is it she's laughing to herself? I'd hang my head too.

  3. So Democrats, you just move from one false accusation to the next? You claim Trump colluded with Russia, turns out he didn't. You claimed Kavanaguh was a rapist, turns out he wasn't, now you have this fake impeachment BS. Dude, this strategy doesn't work man.

  4. SNL writer #1: "I need to come up with a funny joke about Trump"
    SNL writer #2: "Let's make fun of the way he speaks! lol"
    #1: "We also need to come up with a witty piece about Lindsey Graham"
    #2: "Let's say he talks like he's drunk! lmao"
    #1: "And the piece ridiculing John Kennedy for his position about impeachment"
    #2: "He talks like a big rooster! lmao"
    #1: "Can we have anything that's not about making fun of people's voices?"
    #2: "Can do! Guess what trump did? He misspelled Trump! lmao! he wrote it Ttump on a tweet! Hah! Comedy gold!"

    Jesus christ if you guys are with the anti-trump team no wonder Trump has many supporters. You make the opposition seem so stupid that you leave people no alternative

  5. No matter what I watch now I keep getting this clown or Colbert as my next video playing.
    YouTube is trying so hard to fail like the MSN. There's a reason why we have turned away from the propagandists on the major networks.
    YouTube is programing my viewing not based on what I would like or makes sense like the good old days but on what best suits the goals of Google. What suits google is propagandists like this and Colbert keeping our minds away from ideas that would see wealth stop flowing from the working class to the military/industrial//parasite complex!
    This guy and Colbert are part of the machine killing millions!

  6. But they aren’t loosing the fight lol. House can Impeach all they want but just like billy Clinton who got impeached. Trump won’t be removed from office because his party controls the senate

  7. LET'S SEE —–
    no crime
    no witnesses
    no victim
    Schiff is a total lying POS & weird as hell.
    people have totally lost interest.

    yup, democrats are winning….the booby prize!!
    Nancy needs to pull the plug on this gigantic turkey.

  8. I am sure, that by now everybody understands that the impeachment business is to save the Dems in 2020. But, thanks to our media, there is a sizable portion of constituency hating our President. They want him out, they don't care how. The Dems hope that illegal immigrants will increase that portion and will help their cause, never mind what happens to America.

  9. I seen all the evidence, and heard all the testimony,,, I conclude it is a big nothing burger…just like liberals all talk and nothing to show to back it up…loosers..

  10. Seth and his followers are Dumb AF . Adumb Schitt has no evidence Trump committed a crime and witnesses who have not witnessed a crime. Adumb caught lying in every impeachment attempt. Adumb Schiftt is Nancy Pelosis and George Soros’s puppet. Soros funded Schiff's campaign and Soros's son is married to Schiff's sister.. Seth should stick to comedy.. there's a whole lotta material on this thread aka his stupid fans.

  11. Hello my friends do not be afraid because our mighty God is with our president Trump. There will be no impeachment and trump will be our last president before the second coming of our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ. Peace

    Covfefe anyone?

    Here is partial 2016 returns showing problems…big ones…with campaign expenses: www.RisePatriot.com/2ndtrump.pdf

  15. Seth! When you were coming up, working the clubs and honing your craft, did you ever think you'd get big enough to work for the D.N.C.!!!!??? Look at you now! Slinging awful recycled jokes to bot viewers lmao take norms above, you shouldn't be doing this. This is hard to watch man.

  16. REALLY LIAR IN CHIEF SETH HAS DECIDED REPUBLICANS ARE LOSING. I DON'T SEE DEMOCRATS WINNING. THEY ARE RATHER EMBARRSASSED THAT DESPTE THE CAREFULLY ORCHESTRATED NARRATIVE FROM SCHIFTY SCHITT REPUBLICANS HAVE DEMOLISHED EVERY ONE OF THE WITENESSES. WOULD IT BE NICE YOU PIECE OF GARBAGE TO TELL YOUR VIEWERS THE TRUTH ONE TIME? DISGUSTING POS.

  17. Do your own research. MSM has even their entertainment divisions selling their lies to the public. Check the facts for yourself. #Walkaway

  18. No bombshell testimony, absolutely nothing. Just wasting tax payer money. The ambassador later said there was no quid pro quo. Just keep twisting facts.

  19. Wow why don’t people talk about his misspeaks sounds like Graham gotta get drunk to sport him looks like congressman Kennedy as well is that what republicans have to now stay drunk to stay loyal to trump

  20. Sondland changed his testimony because he isn't willing to go to prison for Trump. Plain and simple.

    When Trump say, I heard, people are saying and they all say, he is clearly talking about himself.

    Well, Mueller did say Trump and Trump Jr were too dumb to realize they were breaking the law by welcoming Russia's help. So, it looks like the Republicans are gearing up for the same defense now.

    Trump Supporters still believe in Trump's innocence and with a solid base of 35% Trump would win the Electoral College again in 2020 if American Voters refuse to vote like they did in 2016.

  21. What did Vladimir Putin offer the Republican National Committee that caused them to sell out America so completely???  A cut of Putin’s trillion dollar oil resources???

  22. When Republicans call Democrats dumb they are trying to fight back. By using insulting remarks because the Democrats. Have touched their corruption nerves. Which can be painful and embarrassing.

  23. The New York Times, Ross Douthat became the latest and perhaps most prominent advocate of using the Twenty-Fifth Amendment to remove President Donald Trump from office. Section 4 of the Twenty-Fifth Amendment allows the vice president and a majority of the Cabinet to recommend the removal of the president in cases where he is “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office,” and allows the House and Senate to confirm the recommendation over the president’s objection by two-thirds vote. Douthat argued that the amendment should be invoked to stop what he calls a “childish president” who is unfit for office and who is unlikely to be impeached.

  24. The translation when 45 says something like "they all say," or "people are saying," is "I'm about to tell an especially big lie."

  25. Trump is a major hoax. And probably his ridiculous supporter Stephen Miller, should accompany trump to prison or a hospital for the criminally insane

  26. Captain Covfefe has the bestes words. The fact that they only come together in the shapes of lies has to do with him opening his mouth. We are being " foiceterd" ?! MAGA: Morons Are Governing America.

  27. I have a book I bought some years ago On how words were formed over time into modern languages ! Now with the cell phone 📱 texting our language is changing once again and could break the language barrier bringing humanity into a better understanding of each other ! Perhaps bringing and end to war and pulling humanity together,to really make us one family ! To come together and save our planet ,our Mother Earth ! 👍🦋🌈👵🏻🐶😺🖖👽✋💕🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄

  28. He was using his Word of the Day toilet paper–Definition of foister. 1 archaic : pickpocket. 2 obsolete : a palmer of dice : cheat, rogue. (from Merriam-Webster dictionary) It really suits him.

  29. The Republicans are a sad bunch of people they are too scared to stand up to him. He's always saying someone is dumb, but he doesn't know the words to the national anthem, and he does not know which are states and which are cities, but this is who they look up to. God help America.

  30. Bahahaha the dems just guaranteed Trumps win in 2020 by all this stupid BS. What a waste of time and money. If impeached, he’ll be the first president to win after impeachment. Lmfao

  31. What shouts out loudly to me is the Republicans don't argue the facts. When your in an argument and you can't win with the facts you resort to lame insults. But that just makes you look more guilty.

  32. So you can't find anything wrong with his job as a president so you just criticize one grammatical error in the slew of millions of words spoken on a weekly basis

  33. While 'foistered' isn't a word, 'foister' is. It means to cheat or mislead. I'm English living in Australia and I use it very occasionally. Is he not satisfied with making life frustrating as all hell for US Citizens he also must continue to mutilate the English language? hehe

  34. You can not claim ignorance when you break the law. There is an understanding that competent adults are responsible for their actions period. Commit a crime and when you go to court try pleading ignorance. Sorry it's not a defence unless you are developmentally disabled enough not to know right from wrong.

  35. I'm amazed. It's pretty crazy to see Left leaning people listen to this guy. I watch all media. I try to see things from every point of view. I did vote for Trump. I did not vote for him to be an apostle. I voted for him for economic reasons and he's done his job.

  36. The presidential candidates are chosen by the International Banksters and they control both of the Republican and Democratic parties ( Liberal / Conservative). The idea that we have choices when it comes to electing presidential candidates is an illusion.

  37. I remember something that I was taught in history class, if a president has been impeached then they won't be allowed to run again as far as any elections go. I mean Richard Nixon knew he was about to be impeached so he resigned and now Trump is like the 4th president to be impeached I remember something that I was taught in history class, if a president has been impeached then they won't be allowed to run again as far as any elections go. I mean Richard Nixon knew he was about to be impeached so he resigned and now Trump is like the fourth president to be impeached and he's confident that he's going to win again which is totally unlikely considering that I looked it up and that rule oven peach mint still hasn't changed.

  38. can we get better material bored with all the same old Trump jokes – just really cookie cutter – doesn't look like Repubs are losing anything if those articles don't move.
