Skip to comments.Meadows: Dems Wore All Black During Impeachment Vote Because 'This Is Their Political Funeral'
Posted on 12/22/2019 9:55:21 AM PST by jazusamo
Congressman Mark Meadows (R-NC) on Saturday joined Fox News' Jesse Watters to discuss the Democrats' sham impeachment process and their votes on articles of impeachment. According to the Republican member of Congress, his Democratic colleagues know their vote in favor of articles of impeachment goes against the American peoples' desires. It's the very reason they wore black to the vote. It's not because they're "sad" or feel like this is a "grave" scenario being played out. It's because this vote signified their "political funeral," Meadows said.
"There is nothing serious about what Nancy Pelosi has done, other than the fact that she was serious about trying to get a political advantage," Meadows explained. "They're not just coming after Donald Trump. They're coming after every single person that voted for Donald Trump. This is all about making sure that 233 Democrats well, excuse me, 232 Democrats will actually supplant their will for the will of the people."
"There's also one other glaring thing that you need to point out: Nancy Pelosi wants to control what happens in the Senate. She wants to bring new witnesses. I thought their whole case was unbelievably ironclad and certainly beyond anything that would could ever imagine and yet she wants more witnesses," he said. "That's because there's a flaw in the case that she's already made."
Watters said what most Americans believe: Pelosi's leadership, especially on the impeachment front, has been exposed as partisan and overtly political.
"McConnell's not going to put up with any of this," Watters said. "I don't know what's going on in the Senate or the House or how it's going to shake out but it's not going to shake out in Nancy's favor, I'll tell you that."
According to Meadows, Democrats are putting on a "PR stunt" by doing things like dressing in all black during the full House vote on the articles of impeachment.
"They're putting on black because, for a lot of them, this is their political funeral," the Congressman said. "I can tell you, they're high-fiving in the hallways if they're from a Democrat district, a real progressive district. The rest of them are very scared and they should be, because, the American people, just like you pointed out, the American people are seeing beyond this."
Meadows made the point that the Senate and the American people will ultimately decide President Trump's fate. But he did say one thing that has become increasingly clear: Americans aren't buying the arguments the Democrats have set forth.
"It's pretty selfish of these deep blue Democrat district representatives are out there high-fiving, fist bumping, celebrating, spiking the football, because I don't see how Nancy keeps the gavel after this stunt," Watters said.
"I can tell you that what happens in some of those states that you were talking about, those traditional states that no Republican was ever supposed to win, and yet when Donald Trump won them, what's happening is many of those Democrat members of Congress will go home," Meadows explained. "This maybe the only 'important vote' that they ever take because what's going to happen is when 2020 rolls around, they're going to find themselves on the losing side of the vote tally."
‘This Is Their Political Funeral’
Death always follows acts of stupidity.
zzZZzzz.. not soma.
I thought they were mourning government paid abortions.
OK Mark-— since you’ve announced you are leaving, you had better have cultivated your replacement-— with massive support.
Y’all knew that right— Meadows is leaving after next year 2nd Session 116th Congress. Somebody had better have a campaign up and running, for sure some NC queer/trannie/choose your bathroomgender types will be in opposition (the artsy living off the teat of NC types).
Western North Carolinas loss with Meadows retirement.....he is an able and humble servant there and much beloved by the people
His district greatly succeeded in putting Donald Trump over the top during the 16 election
But I believe there are even greater achievements ahead for him
President Trump trusts him
Hopefully it’s a politically one agonizing for San Fran Nan.
The DIMocRATS farce impeachment reminds me of how some of our wild/rebellious Texans sometimes win THE DARWIN AWARD. = “Hey Honey, Hold my beer & watch this. You ain’t gonna believe it.”
ImVho, there is little reason to spend $$$$$$$$ to hold the 2020 Election, as it’s already irretrievably lost for the DIMocRATS. —— It will be a BLOODBATH for the DP.
Suicide of the D party. It will be interesting to see what replaces it
Take a couple of minutes and laugh at the Spamimpeachers.
Lets Wrap This Baby Up, Folks Donate Today!
Some indecent gerrymandering has taken place in Western North Carolina......they divided the political pie & mixed things up......giving Mark Asheville .....as part of his 11th district
Theyre setting themselves up for the next election
Asheville is not Trump country!
The smaller counties.....Macon especially worked their hearts out for Mark, and President Trump
But yes, to your point.....Mark should have an able replacement.....
If he or she is real like Mark......the smaller towns, counties will commit
They’re starting to call themselves “Democratic Socialists.” I have a couple in my extended family. They’ve tried “liberals,” “progressives,” and whatever else they’ve tried. But now, they seem to be veering nearer to who they really are: communists.
I thought NaN was dressed for a cocktail party
I consider myself a liberal. In the classical sense. I place great value on individual rights and liberties. My self-described “progressive” friends and relatives, value group rights, identity politics and redistributionist policies, which are the opposite of individual rights.
The most basic individual right is the right to self defense. Next is the right to keep the fruits of one’s own labor.
Its us theyre coming after. Trump is only in the way. Democrats nullified the votes of 63 million Americans last week not because of him.
Because we voted the wrong way and we rejected them and they cant stand it.
Good ones, thanks Dave. LOL!
“Breaking News: I’m Still President”
quite amazing. Asheville- home of Franklin Graham (who apparently has Leftie fake Christian opposition from the queer pastoral types.) Moscow on the French Broad River.
The buzz I've heard is that Meadows will be working for Trump soon.
That’s good news. At least Trump can trust him.
