Why Republicans Aren’t Impeaching Trump

Why Republicans Aren’t Impeaching Trump

There are no moderate Republicans. Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian, and Ben Mankiewicz, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://www.tytnetwork.com/join

“In the tradition of the Clintonometer and the Trump Apocalypse Watch, the Impeach-O-Meter is a wildly subjective and speculative daily estimate of the likelihood that Donald Trump leaves office before his term ends, whether by being impeached (and convicted) or by resigning under threat of same.

Well! This morning Donald Trump accused a TV pundit who has been criticizing him—Joe Scarborough—of having recently begged him to kill an allegedly scandalous National Enquirer story. (Trump is buddies with the guy who runs the company that owns the tabloid, which recently published a piece about Scarborough’s relationship with Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski that, despite its breathless framing, did not actually reveal anything interesting or scandalous.) Then New York magazine reported that top Trump aide/son-in-law Jared Kushner in fact told Scarborough that Trump would kill the story if Scarborough apologized for being critical of the administration. The (alleged) low-rent media blackmail is yet another embarrassment for the president in a week that has been full of them—and still, as I said yesterday in regards to a related PR disaster, it seems foolish to move our likelihood of impeachment above 50 percent just because Trump did something dumb; he’s always doing something dumb.”*

    45 being mentally unstable should be an impeachable offense.

  3. abscondam says:

    Are liberals this stupid? No one, left or right, is impeaching him because there is no valid reason as to why he should be impeached. I’ve never seen such delusion before, Jesus …

  7. Keith Brandson says:

    Young Turks are deluded, self absorbed, arrogant idiots. The VAST majority of Americans do NOT believe your crock of lies. Trump is right. They KNOW the truth. You guys pander to 2 markets – NY and California. You LOST BIGLY. Get a freakin clue. You and the Hellywood celebrities need to do another commercial – pleading with the electoral college to do what the celebrities want. You are in a vacuous echo chamber. And you take yourselves seriously. HILARIOUS if it weren’t so PATHETIC.

  8. Rock Johnson says:

    Republicans aren’t impeaching Trump because there’s no reason to impeach him. Not liking a president isn’t enough to impeach him. He actually needs to do something wrong.

  9. Jimmy Joe says:

    trump isn’t going anywhere. he had a movement and it’s still a movement.

  10. Twila Twittlehead says:

    Because there’s nothing to impeach him over.

  11. Gabe Dudley says:

    this is radical left propaganda friends. I’m sure most realize it now but to the few, please wake up. Trump was never under threat of impeachment. The Turks are just trying to cover their ass on all the previous months of lying to you. Its this kind of shit that will get us 8years of tump. Turks have no place in the rebuilding of the liberal/progressive party!

  12. Derek Dundas says:

    TYT seriously what was the point of this video? more conspiracy theories and fake news? stick to the facts and keep your opinions to yourselves.

  13. Ben Little says:

  14. Seta-San says:

    Why would they force him out? Democrats are still less popular than Trump

  15. Louie St. Marie says:

  16. The Super Psycho Killer says:

    In the correct universe, Bernie Sanders would be President right now.

  17. April Matsui says:

    A British doctor says: “In Britain, medicine is so advanced that we cut a man’s spine out, put it in another man, and in 6 weeks, he was up and looking for a job.”

    The German doctor says: “That’s nothing,
    in Germany we took part of a brain, put it in another man, and in 4 weeks he is looking for a job.”

    The Russian doctor says: “Gentlemen, we took half a heart from a man, put it in another’s chest, and in 2 weeks he is looking for a job.”

    The American doctor laughs: “You are all far behind us. A few months ago, we took a man with no brain, no heart, and no spine and made him President.

    And he is making America great again…. 😜
