You’d think they’d at least try hide their bias better?
With impeachment fever taking over the left, media outlets such as The Washington Post have gone into overdrive. They are grasping at anything and everything. No news is too fake, no source is too thin to push. This means delivering a daily deluge of political porn for Democrats and the latest delusion is that they’ll somehow impeach Mike Pence as well. I’m reliably told this all leads to Nancy Pelosi becoming president.
Perspective: President Pelosi? It could happen. https://t.co/cV22HjVcyv

Spoiler: No, it can’t happen.
I mean, it could technically, but I could also find a million bucks under my bed tonight. I’ll let you game out the chances of that.
The Washington Post being stupid isn’t necessarily newsworthy, but the reason this matters is because it’s a window into the just how shamelessly Democrats are looking to abuse the impeachment powers. Notice how they label this “perspective,” as if it’s some truthful, succinct explanation of the situation and not a delusional gambit. On what grounds is Mike Pence going to be impeached? Conversing with Donald Trump? Or is the suggestion that he’s somehow involved in some grand conspiracy?
It’s also worth remembering that Pence is still part of the Republican club. On what planet would any significant number of Republican Senators vote to remove him from office, especially when Nancy Pelosi is next in line?
It’s not going to happen but the bigger goal here is to push a narrative that not only is Trump evil, but so is everyone else in his administration and everyone who voted for him. No one is off limits, everyone is to be destroyed. Removing Trump would never be enough, nor Mike Pence, and they’d try the same thing and when another Republican is president some years from now, they’ll do it all over again. The great myth in the Trump era is that Democrat treatment of him is somehow unique. George W. Bush had Articles of Impeachment pushed against him. If Ted Cruz were President, he’d be getting savaged as well.
They aren’t going to stop. This is the new normal and Republicans can either get busy fighting or get busy dying (politically speaking).
