Republicans, Losing Impeachment Fight, Call Democrats “Dumb”: A Closer Look

Republicans, Losing Impeachment Fight, Call Democrats “Dumb”: A Closer Look


-Republicans are standing
by President Trump,
even after major election losses
and bombshell testimony
and, now, they’re
calling Democrats dumb.
For more on this,
it’s time for “A Closer Look.”
[ Suspenseful theme plays ]
[ Cheering and applause ]
Donald Trump is nothing,
if not a pioneer
of the English language.
You might think
he’s just making up words
or doesn’t know how to read,
but that is not the case.
You see,
Trump doesn’t make errors.
He makes discoveries.
He’s like a scholar.
[ Laughter ]
Spends all night scouring
obscure, 15th-century
medieval texts,
looking for previously
unknown words.
[as Trump] Eureka!
I found it!
Lawmakers used to be called…
-Lawmarkers.
[ Laughter ]
-And, recently, recently,
Dr. Trump has made yet another
[ Laughter ]
profound linguistic discovery.
He’s invented a new,
powerful word
that he loves so much,
he’s now used it twice
at two different rallies
in the span of one week.
-First, they engineered
the Russia hoax.
That was a total hoax.
The single greatest lies
ever foistered
[ Laughter ]
upon the American people.
Then, it was Mueller.
Remember Mueller,
with that hoax?
[ Crowd booing ]
The biggest lie ever foistered
[ Laughter ]
upon the American people.
-That’s right, foistered.
[ Laughter ]
He sounds like Daffy Duck
trying to say “faster.”
[as Daffy] Foister, foister!
[ Laughter ]
The Democrats are after us!
[ Cheering and applause ]
Trump is surrounded,
surrounded by so many sycophants
that no one was willing
to tell him
foistered is not a word,
[ Laughter ]
so he used it twice.
Soon, his underlings are
gonna to start using it, too.
[as official]
This administration is moving
foister and foister
[ Laughter ]
than any administration
in history,
but we’re being stonewalled
by Democratic lawmarkers!
[ Laughter ]
Trump’s not the only linguistic
genius in the GOP this week.
GOP Senator Lindsey Graham
went on Fox News twice
to talk about the
impeachment inquiry.
Now, Graham was asked
about testimony
from one of Trump’s
handpicked ambassadors,
a guy named Gordon Sondland,
who donated $1 million
to Trump’s inaugural committee.
This week, Sondland admitted
that there was a quid pro quo
to get Ukraine
to investigate the company
that employed Joe Biden’s son
Hunter Biden.
That company was called Burisma,
and, yet,
Graham couldn’t pronounce
either the name Burisma
or the name Sondland.
-There was concern that
the prosecutor was getting
too close to Hunter Biden,
that people from Bearmoosa,
whatever the name
[ Laughter ]
of the company,
a conversation with Sunderland.
Now, here’s a question:
Why did Sunderland
change his testimony?
Was there a connection
between Sunderland
and Democratic operatives
on the committee?
It makes me incredil–
incredibly suspicious.
Why did Sunderland
change his mind?
-You think he’s in cahoots
with the Democrats?
You’re not even in cahoots
with your own mouth.
[ Laughter ]
Trump and Graham sound like
two guys leavin’ a bar
at 4:00 am,
arguing who should dive home.
[as Trump]
Give me the keys.
You’re too foistered to drive.
[as Graham] No. Why? No. Why?
We need a r–
I’ll call Sunderland.
[ Laughter and applause ]
He’ll pick us up
in his Chevy Buhroozmuh.
[ Laughter ]
Also, verbal slipups aside,
you think one of Trump’s
handpicked ambassadors,
a guy who, again, gave him
$1 million to his campaign,
is in cahoots
with the Democrats?
These guys are such
paranoid freaks,
they’re gonna start accusing
everyone of bein’ against them.
[as Trump]
Who’s the whistleblower?
Is it you, Rudy?
What’s that around your neck?
[as Giuliani]
Oh, no! Oh, no!
I thought this was
my lucky necklace!
[ Laughter ]
And, yet, despite the fact
that these guys can barely get
two-syllable words
out of their own mouths,
they’re actually accusing
Democrats of being stupid.
Last night, during Trump’s
rally in Louisiana,
Senator John Kennedy
brought up the impeachment
inquiry and said this…
-And you know what our Democrats
friends have done for him?!
[ Crowd shouting ]
Speaker Nancy Pelosi
is trying to impeach him!
[ Booing ]
I don’t mean any disrespect,
but it must suck
to be that dumb!
[ Laughter ]
-I think you did mean
some disrespect.
I’m sorry, she’s dumb?
You don’t get
to call anyone dumb
when you sound like a cross
between Gomer Pyle
and Foghorn Leghorn.
[ Laughter and applause ]
[ Scat sings as Kennedy ]
[ Cheering and applause ]
[ Continues scat singing ]
[ Cheering ]
I mean, again,
I don’t how can you be
so judgmental.
The dude you’re standing next to
thinks foistered is a real word
[ Laughter ]
and can’t even spell
his own name.
That’s real.
[ Laughter ]
That is from a tweet
Trump wrote himself.
You know how you get points
on your SATs
just for writing down your name?
Trump would be
the first student in history
to get a score back that said,
“Maybe college isn’t for you.”
[ Laughter ]
That same Kennedy’s
also defended Trump
during the impeachment inquiry
by saying that, even if there
was a quid pro quo with Ukraine,
Trump didn’t intend
to break any laws.
Kennedy said in an interview,
“To me, it all turns
on intent motive.
Did the president have
a culpable state of mind?
Based on the evidence
that I see,
that I’ve been allowed to see,
the president does not
have a culpable state of mind.”
[ Laughter ]
That’s because he doesn’t
have any state of mind.
[ Laughter ]
His mind is empty.
If Trump took a meditation class
and the instructor said,
“First, begin
by clearing your mind,”
Trump would immediately shout…
[as Trump] Done.
I did it. Mind cleared.
[ Laughter ]
Empty head cavern.
So these guys think
there’s a shadowy conspiracy
against them and they
think Democrats are dumb
for pursuing impeachment,
despite the fact that a majority
of Americans support it.
In fact, these guys are so
out of touch with reality that,
when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi
first announced the impeachment
inquiry in November,
Trump himself argued that it
would actually be good for him.
-I just heard
that she’d like to impeach
and, I mean, if she does that,
they all say that’s a positive
for me, from the election.
-Oh, do they all say that?
[ Laughter ]
When you say they, do you mean
your other personalities?
[ Fresh laughter ]
[as Trump] Scared Trump
says it’s bad.
Sassy Trump says it’s good
and Nerdy Trump says bazinga.
[ Laughter ]
So Trump said impeachment
would actually be good
for him politically
and, yet, on Tuesday,
Republicans saw major losses
in Virginia;
and Kentucky, where a Democrat
won the governor’s race
in a state Trump won
by 30 points.
Now, to be clear, Kentucky’s
incumbent Republican governor,
Matt Bevin, was one of the most
unpopular governors
in the country.
He fought with teachers
and tried to gut Medicaid.
Overturned an executive order
restoring felon voting rights
and he tried to implement
work requirements
for Medicaid recipients.
And I would just like to say,
if we’re gonna start
instituting work requirements
for federal programs,
maybe we should start
with the presidency.
I mean, Trump is always golfing.
[ Laughter ]
He never works. He’s like
that friend everyone has
who’s always posting photos
from exotic locations,
but when you ask him what he
does for a living, he’s like,
“Uh, well, I’m workin’ on an app
that tells you
which Starbucks
has the best bathrooms.
[ Laughter ]
Yeah, it’s called —
it’s called Starbutts.
[ Laughter and applause ]
So Bevin’s defeat —
[ Applause ]
Bevin’s defeat was a rejection,
not just of Trump,
but of the GOP agenda on issues
like healthcare and education.
But the race was also
very much about impeachment.
In fact, a source close
to Trump even admitted
the GOP losses on Tuesday
were a bad sign,
both for Trump’s
reelection campaign
and the impeachment inquiry.
-A source close
to the White House told CNN
the results were totally bad.
Kentucky and Virginia
signaled to the GOP
they are underestimating
voter intensity against Trump
and it could be terrible
for them next year.
Bad omen for impeachment.
-You guys really needed an omen
to tell you things
were not looking good?
[ Laughter ]
Republicans are like
Ancient Egyptians
trying to predict the seasons.
“The air is cooling.
What could it mean?
We must look to the stars
for a sign.”
[ Laughter, cheering,
and applause ]
Ammit.
And, what’s worse —
[ Applause ]
what’s worse for Republicans
is they have
no credible defense.
They’re flailing.
In fact, yesterday,
an MSNBC reporter caught up
to Republican
Congressman Mark Meadows,
a staunch Trump ally.
Meadows was desperate to prove
that Republicans
were not losing
the impeachment fight.
-Hold on.
We have Mark Meadows right here.
Congressman Meadows,
can we talk live?
So he’s walking by right now,
but Republicans
are really struggling
to defend
-I’ll talk to you.
-the president — Okay. Great.
-We’re not struggling
on anything.
-Okay, so Congressman —
-So, the Republicans
are not struggling on anything.
[ Laughter ]
-He’s like a guy who’s too proud
to admit he doesn’t
know how to swim.
[as Meadows]
I’m not drownin’.
Do not throw me
a life preserver.
I love the taste of salt water.
I think I can see
my grandmother.
[ Laughter ]
Also, can we hear that clip
again, with the tire screeching?
-Congressman Meadows,
can we talk live?
So he’s walking by right now,
but Republicans
are really struggling to defend
[ Tire screeches ]
[ Laughter ]
the president — Okay. Great.
-Struggling on anything.
-Okay.
-And, now,
[ Applause ]
[ Cheering ]
even Trump’s own appointees —
[ Applause ]
Trump’s own appointees
are admitting
there was a quid pro quo
with Ukraine,
so Republicans are changing
their argument again.
Yesterday, Lindsey Graham,
the guy who couldn’t even
pronounce the name
of one of the key witnesses,
said Trump couldn’t
have orchestrated
a quid pro quo with Ukraine
because he is too incompetent.
-What I can tell you about the
Trump policy toward the Ukraine:
It was incoherent.
It depends on who you talk to.
They seem to be incapable
of forming a quid pro quo.
-So they can’t be criminals
because they’re stupid.
[ Laughter ]
It is not good when your defense
is also a confession.
No version of that is good.
Either they broke the law
or they’re morons.
It’s like if a cop
pulled you over and said,
“Do you know the speed limit?”
And you responded,
“Of course not.
I’m too drunk to read the sign.”
[ Laughter ]
So I guess what Graham
is saying is
they would have committed
the crime, but they were too…
-Dumb!
[ Laughter ]
-This week should put to rest
any speculation that impeachment
should somehow help trump.
It should also reminds us
that the GOP agenda,
on issues like healthcare,
education, and voting rights,
is deeply unpopular.
I don’t know what
will happen in 2020,
but, so far,
Trump’s plans have been…
-Foistered.
[ Laughter ]
-This has been “A Closer Look.”

100 thoughts on “Republicans, Losing Impeachment Fight, Call Democrats “Dumb”: A Closer Look”

  1. The New York Times, Ross Douthat became the latest and perhaps most prominent advocate of using the Twenty-Fifth Amendment to remove President Donald Trump from office. Section 4 of the Twenty-Fifth Amendment allows the vice president and a majority of the Cabinet to recommend the removal of the president in cases where he is “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office,” and allows the House and Senate to confirm the recommendation over the president’s objection by two-thirds vote. Douthat argued that the amendment should be invoked to stop what he calls a “childish president” who is unfit for office and who is unlikely to be impeached.

  2. The translation when 45 says something like "they all say," or "people are saying," is "I'm about to tell an especially big lie."

  3. Trump is a major hoax. And probably his ridiculous supporter Stephen Miller, should accompany trump to prison or a hospital for the criminally insane

  4. Captain Covfefe has the bestes words. The fact that they only come together in the shapes of lies has to do with him opening his mouth. We are being " foiceterd" ?! MAGA: Morons Are Governing America.

  5. I have a book I bought some years ago On how words were formed over time into modern languages ! Now with the cell phone 📱 texting our language is changing once again and could break the language barrier bringing humanity into a better understanding of each other ! Perhaps bringing and end to war and pulling humanity together,to really make us one family ! To come together and save our planet ,our Mother Earth ! 👍🦋🌈👵🏻🐶😺🖖👽✋💕🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄

  6. He was using his Word of the Day toilet paper–Definition of foister. 1 archaic : pickpocket. 2 obsolete : a palmer of dice : cheat, rogue. (from Merriam-Webster dictionary) It really suits him.

  7. The Republicans are a sad bunch of people they are too scared to stand up to him. He's always saying someone is dumb, but he doesn't know the words to the national anthem, and he does not know which are states and which are cities, but this is who they look up to. God help America.

  8. Bahahaha the dems just guaranteed Trumps win in 2020 by all this stupid BS. What a waste of time and money. If impeached, he’ll be the first president to win after impeachment. Lmfao

  9. What shouts out loudly to me is the Republicans don't argue the facts. When your in an argument and you can't win with the facts you resort to lame insults. But that just makes you look more guilty.

  10. So you can't find anything wrong with his job as a president so you just criticize one grammatical error in the slew of millions of words spoken on a weekly basis

  11. While 'foistered' isn't a word, 'foister' is. It means to cheat or mislead. I'm English living in Australia and I use it very occasionally. Is he not satisfied with making life frustrating as all hell for US Citizens he also must continue to mutilate the English language? hehe

  12. You can not claim ignorance when you break the law. There is an understanding that competent adults are responsible for their actions period. Commit a crime and when you go to court try pleading ignorance. Sorry it's not a defence unless you are developmentally disabled enough not to know right from wrong.

  13. I'm amazed. It's pretty crazy to see Left leaning people listen to this guy. I watch all media. I try to see things from every point of view. I did vote for Trump. I did not vote for him to be an apostle. I voted for him for economic reasons and he's done his job.

  14. The presidential candidates are chosen by the International Banksters and they control both of the Republican and Democratic parties ( Liberal / Conservative). The idea that we have choices when it comes to electing presidential candidates is an illusion.

  15. I remember something that I was taught in history class, if a president has been impeached then they won't be allowed to run again as far as any elections go. I mean Richard Nixon knew he was about to be impeached so he resigned and now Trump is like the 4th president to be impeached I remember something that I was taught in history class, if a president has been impeached then they won't be allowed to run again as far as any elections go. I mean Richard Nixon knew he was about to be impeached so he resigned and now Trump is like the fourth president to be impeached and he's confident that he's going to win again which is totally unlikely considering that I looked it up and that rule oven peach mint still hasn't changed.

  16. can we get better material bored with all the same old Trump jokes – just really cookie cutter – doesn't look like Repubs are losing anything if those articles don't move.

  17. Imagine mocking Republicans for being “dumb” then not knowing foister is a real word and saying it’s not throughout the whole video😂 maybe arguing like a 12 year old girl will make no one notice. Which blue hair liberal art degree students want to defend him? Ps I’m not a trump supporter but this guy sounded arrogant the entire video 😘

  18. every time trump tries to learn a new word outside of his known 550 word vocabulary, he merely confirms his idiocy. Here's a new word I just made up: he's turning this country and its form of Gov't into an "Idiocracy"

  19. If Trump wins the trial by calling Dems names and lying, the Senate should hang it's collective head in shame.

  20. Trump supporters do a lot of diverting attention from the current issues. "What if…. Look over here at what X did that's worse, etc." Most of this chicanery is irrelevant to the issues at hand.

  21. So two opposing parties, which have no place in public office, who are always at each others throats, are expected to effectively cooperate and police each other for the benefit of the people? Oh, that's rich.

  22. The Democrats came with factsthey showed American people the witnesses in their audio tapes they showed the recorded emails the recorded phone calls the recorded transcripts did Democrats was readyand then the Republicans got mad and started the you know it's the clown show with the Republicans no witnesses no subpoenas know nothing in one of Donald Trump's TV lawyers of fox59 lawyers got mad and start lying like Donald Trump in the Republicans do you know anything to cover of Donald Trump's criminal activitiesname is is cephalonia somebody you know when when when they can get they weigh you know I hate Donald Trump a lot like he started that war cuz he couldn't get his waywhere ceppaloni got the lying like nadler with lying I mean it's a clown show by the Republicans attorneys and lawyers

  23. Donald Trump's attorneys and lawyers from Fox news and TV they mad because the Democrats is winning so now they want to call him names and start the lying but we know everybody that cover up for Donald Trump's criminal activity lies like a barbituate liar like Donald Trump you know Donald Trump know how to hand-pick the barbituatebut them TV attorneys in fox59 attorney Daddy got got the Democrats was killing them and they angry now now they want to call him names that act like they lyingin the public knew that they was going to have a clown show article of impeachment trial in this is exactly what it is by the Republicans

  24. 7:38 meadows gives the ''two fingers'' signal for the bonded Scotch he's headed for. Let's hope whomever his Dem opponent will be in his next re-election has this clip locked and loaded for heavy rotation ala Howard Dean's ''yeehaw heard 'round the world''.

  25. Sorry Seth, but foister is a word. Definition of foister. 1 archaic : pickpocket. 2 obsolete : a palmer of dice : cheat, rogue… Both archaic and obsolete. hehehe Foister(noun)

    one who foists something surreptitiously; a falsifier

  26. No you are wright and wrong the way you are right is he is going by someone elses Play book And wrong because he loves to brag about getting away with what no one should ever get away people are believing his act hook line and sinker not reliezing they are diner on a plate.Donald Trump's plate.He is obviously hungry.

  27. Foisted is a transitive verb.

    “To introduce or insert surreptitiously or without warrant”.

    Not the first time a google search would have helped this writing team. Plus, now I sound like a bloody Trump supporter ffs.

  28. The most embarrassing thing about this is the fact that he is clearly running these faux pas by his mental teleprompter.

  29. Another knee jerk reaction from the fake news…….The media is being played so bad…..look at the tape…look at bolton…LOL

    Liberal tears coming again soon……

  30. Foisted IS a word. Shows how dumb ur own audience is to laugh at that "joke"…. oh wait, is that canned laughter that you use, bcos you know that no one would laugh otherwise?

  31. I admit trumpland linguistics seems a bit humorous, but i really think he has a neurological issue due to some disability…it seems obvious, so i am not comfortable making fun of it. I remember people really burning McCain, when to me it was obvious that he had a sudden medical problem and was confused. It is normal for trump, but was not for McCain. I honestly believe trump has a medical issue over and above pure ignorance and narcissism. But, i do laugh when he or anyone, as you show, makes grotesque mistakes. But i feel badly for them, too, don't you, really? They should just stick to their first language…hmmm, but it might only be swear words, who knows? This past week, nearly everyone (Democratic presenters) had speech issues that i assumed was due to stress and great fatigue. They were having to be working nearly 24/7! I wondered if they slept in bathroom stalls! When did they even have time to go to a hotel to eat and sleep? Yet, they always looked fresh and did a remarkable job, i thought, at presenting their case. I know comedians have a hard time keeping a healthy balance between real humor and bullying…tough job. Thanks for helping us laugh at ourselves.

  32. sen.John Kennedy , stop 🛑 take a good look in the mirror ! Talk about dumb ! The Republicans are struggling to save trump from impeachment ! Win win ! Nope ! LOSE,LOSE LOSER

  33. John Bolton is the Whistleblower. All of Trump's supporters will look like traitors after their names are written in the History books for many years to come. They have shown unwaivering support for a CORRUPT CON MAN and a LIAR. Bolton's soon to be released book, titled 'DRUG DEAL GONE WRONG' will be the number one selling book in the U.S. of all time, and the second most heavily distributed book EVER, behind the Holy Bible. John Bolton deserves to be compensated well. Afterall, he had the patience to put up with the President and his group of Loyalist Staff Members who decided to go beyond intelligent reasoning to protect Trump and show a Total Disregard for our Country. Honesty and Integrity DOES pay off for those of us who choose to do the right thing and put the interests of our Country first, above any Dictator who has threatened the LIVES of women and have insulted and belittled the DECEASED.

  34. Notice how people are booing and the people in the background are all with out emotion and just kinda looking around. I'm pretty sure he has a green screen behind him.

  35. Watched a programme about the holocaust today. Two of hitlers rallying cries were Make Germany great again and put Germany first! Do these quotes deem familiar and frightening? They do to me.

  36. You picked him up on FOISTERED, but you missed the bit where he called it the SIGNAL greatest lie FOISTERED.
    This guy is supposed to be a stable genius? I know parrots that can talk better than him!

  37. This is hilarious and in a way I am glad it’s open and obvious but I hope everyone is watching how far they will go to keep the ball rolling. These are the people running our government and none of this is about the people.

  38. If Republicans are not winning, then how can it be that Democrats are "dumb:? Since Democrats are winning, it seems to me that Republicans are dumb.

  39. Technical point: there is the word foister and it is pronounced exactly the way Trump said it https://www.definitions.net/definition/foister

  40. It's stupid and dumb to go up there and speak with a DRUNK on. And by the way if empeachment is good for your re-election what are you republicans so worried about.
