On Wednesday evening, Jimmy Kimmel announced that President Trump had been impeached in the House of Representatives – for the second time – with a vote of 232-197, over his incitement to a violent and seditious takeover of the U.S. Capitol.
“Unlike the first one, this was a bipartisan indictment,” Kimmel said during his late-night monologue. “Every democrat [representative], and a handful of Republicans – ten of them in the House – voted to expel Trump in protest for his role in organizing, mobilizing, and stirring up the violent attack on them last week. These people attacked them, they tried to get the vice president, they tried to stop our election, and these jackholes today were like, ‘This is another political attack on our president!’ “
Kimmel was of course referring to the many Republicans who did not vote for impeachment, choosing loyalty to a crooked former reality TV host accused of serial rapist for the love of the country. “Your president gave a big – I mean, a small – thumbs up to an army of morons marching down the streets, kicking doors, killing a policeman and spreading their excrement all over your office. And most of these Republicans are like, ‘Well the office made need to cool off. A little color on the walls, it’s nice! »Cracked the actor
But despite their cowardice, Trump has made history. “Donald Trump becomes the first American president to be impeached twice. I wonder if he’s already tired of all the wins? Kimmel joked. “Whatever they have said and done to support him in the past, I want to commend House Republicans who voted to hold Trump accountable. It is a true act of courage and should be treated as such. It is not just a political risk. These crazy Trump guys will come to their house!
“But for others, it’s always a surprise to see how crazy some of our elected officials are. And that was on full display today as they supported their sad orange man.
He then cut to a montage of Republican congressmen invoking everyone from Kathy Griffin and Madonna to Robert De Niro in their unconvincing attempts to distract from the president’s failure to uphold his sworn duties. office.
