While Democrats still desperately want Americans to believe President Donald Trump is a threat to our democracy and must be removed from office -- the numbers show that hardly anyone cares.
According to Reuters, 9 million Americans tuned in for the opening day of Trump’s impeachment trial in the Senate — which aired across six cable and broadcast television networks.
While that number sounds impressive off of the top, when compared to the televised House hearings last year -- in which several rounds of witnesses provided live testimony -- the numbers are lower by several million.
The House impeachment hearings opening day managed to draw 14 million viewers.
Tuesday’s Senate impeachment trial lasted a mind-numbing 13 hours and consisted of countless arguments between both sides, with Democrats pushing a series of attempts to amend the rules set for the trial by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
The trial was so boring and difficult to watch that most cable news networks -- including left-wing CNN and MSNBC -- stopped showing the trial live and aired more of it’s routine programming with periodic check-ins on the Senate floor.
One of the only noteworthy moments came when House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff had quite the slip of the tongue on Wednesday and admitted the real reason why Democrats are trying so hard to remove the president.
While speaking from the Senate floor, Schiff revealed that Democrats’ partisan impeachment is about stopping President Donald Trump from being re-elected.
Quite amazing to see him so openly brag that Democrats do not want the upcoming election decided by actual voters.
