A clear choice: President Trump or Rashida Tlaib
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's Democratic impeachment hearings have been a big bust.
The impeachment of President Donald Trump is such a bomb that if it were a TV series, it would be canceled after the first episode.
Only 13 million Americans tuned in to watch the first day. I'm betting the number hits zero very soon.
But here's the amazing thing: Trump released the two transcripts. The funniest part of the hearings is that you and I know more about Trump's conversation than any of the "witnesses" or "whistleblowers." They all heard what Trump said from other sources. They heard about it from Johnny, who heard it from Joe, who heard it from Mary. This is the kind of procedure they held during the Salem witch hunt days.
Now to the news that matters.
As I predicted from day one, this has all backfired spectacularly on Democrats. The day before the hearings started, Trump had a 46% approval rating, according to Rasmussen. After the first day of testimony, he was at 48%. As of Friday, he was at 50%. The more Democrats talk on national TV, the higher Trump's numbers go.
Meanwhile, most every national poll shows Joe Biden's numbers cratering. Who would have thunk it? The Trump impeachment hearings are the worst thing that ever happened to ... Biden.
The Trump reelection campaign reported that 100,000 people have signed up to volunteer since the impeachment inquiry began. The campaign raised $3.1 million in small donations during the first day of the public hearings.
Now to the best news of the year for Trump supporters. Remember Rep. Rashida Tlaib? Tlaib, D-Mich. (more like D-Hamas), is the congresswoman who screamed about Trump to a crowd on her first day in office, "We're gonna impeach the mother------!"
Well loudmouthed, Trump-hating, America-hating, Israel-hating, capitalism-hating Tlaib is in trouble. The House Ethics Committee just released internal communications from her campaign that show her frantically begging her campaign aides to give her campaign money. If she used those funds for personal use, that is, of course, illegal. You can't use your donations to pay your personal bills.
