‘Hyperbolically Stupid’: Fact-Checking Trump’s ‘Invalid’ Impeachment Letter | MSNBC 1


Trump is bracing for a historic impeachment vote in Congress that would put him on trial for several “high crimes.” MSNBC’s Ari Melber reports on Trump lashing out at Speaker Pelosi, blasting “Trump derangement syndrome,” accusing her of “abuse of power” and comparing the impeachment probe to a “Salem witch trial.” Despite Trump’s grievances, the Senate is prepping a Trump trial and Mitch McConnell admits he won’t be "impartial." The Washington Post’s Robert Costa reports on how “deeply personal” Trump’s letter to Speaker Pelosi is to him, saying it’s a “Trump rally put on paper” and written over the course of two weeks. Aired on 12/17/19.

    Donnie needs to threaten, then payoff more hookers through the National Enquirer stat!

  2. read it twice, tried to keep an open mind but this letter will be on display in a museum many year from now and a tour guide will stop at this exhibit and discuss the signs of Trump losing his mind. We all have a front row seat to the leader of the free world fading fast

  3. The letter was clearly written by Stephen Miller. It’s got his tone and trump doesn’t know any “big words”.

  4. Mitch McConnell Said That He’s Going To Rigged The Votes !

      MediaMatters IsMyCockHolster yes he did cause he is siding with Trump and Russia

    • @MediaMatters IsMyCockHolster – Yes he did. The Democrats introduced legislation to have the problem with foreign countries meddling in our elections investigated and resolved. Moscow Mitch REFUSES to act on that legislation. McConnell works HARDER AGAINST THE COUNTRY than he does for it. Is this the type of garbage you want running the country??

      @Slytherin Reviews There you are. You said it and said it truthfully. He’s siding with Trump knowing full well that Russia helped him get elected. Do not be surprised that McConnell and others are just as compromised by Russia as Trump is.

    • In 1776, Natan Hale said,
      “I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country.”
      In 2019, the GOP says, “USA — Now on Sale.”

  5. WTF? This cut off before you finished your thought.

  6. What’s up with the editing tonight? I’d like to watch an actual segment. Still appreciate you Ari.

      I feel like I just hired “The A Team”!

    • If you agree with impeachment hoax, sorry dude, you are on the wrong side and being brain washed by listening to .idiots on MSNBC and CNN

      @Robert Hager What do we call someone who believes that windmills cause cancer? What do we call someone who uses up an entire presidential week playing Alabama Weatherman with a Sharpie? What do we call someone who believes that the US had an Air Force and aircraft during the American Revolution? What do we call a man who thinks he had the largest inauguration crowd in history even though the pictures right before his very eyes tell a different story? What do we call someone who thinks “oranges” are “origins”? We call them mentally ill. Whether he’s abused his power or obstructed Congress and should or should not be impeached….. there is NO question but that the man is mentally ill. And, mentally ill people are unfit for the office of the presidency. Don’t ignore it. Face it. Trump is mentally ill. Will he be impeached? Who knows. Will the Senate remove him? Who knows. If the Senate does not remove him, will he take that as a license to break even more laws and flaunt the law even more? Who knows. But one thing we do know. Trump is mentally ill and he will not get better.

  8. Any holder of public office who publicly states that they have, are, or will break their oath of office should automatically be removed from that office unless a court decides otherwise.

  9. Why did the video cut off? It was just getting interesting!

  10. Trump is really really sick…at the final stage. No Cure.

  11. I’m going to ignore that Coldplay reference, and pretend that you dropped a Mobb Deep lyric instead.

  12. Baby trump Crying Again ? As Always Just Like The Rest Of The republicans .

    We need an amendment that REQUIRES a psych test before a person can be sworn in as President AND Vice-President. Trump’s weird narcissism keeps him in his own crazy reality. What must that be like? Scary I think.

    Moscow Mitch and the GOP are enemies of America…. Trump’s letter is just pathetic.

  15. Now that I remember president Obama wasn’t impeached.

  16. “You’re tearing me apart.”…

  17. Dereliction-of-duty Donny the Desperate Despot Dunce is doomed

  18. He seems to be channeling old French king Louis XIV: “I am the state.”

  19. >>> 911: Please rush an ambulance to the WH, a dangerously unpredictable unhinged sicko, who calls himself “President of the US” needs to be caged ASAP!

  20. Did you seriously just fact check a Salem Witch Trial reference?
