‘Mad as hell!’ Liberal tears flow as Senate announces no witnesses, end to impeachment

After the GOP-led Senate voted late Friday, 51-49, against allowing witnesses to testify in President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial, the collective left suffered a meltdown so visceral it inspired flashbacks to the rage-filled tears they shed after the president’s 2016 election victory.

The bawling and weeping began immediately after the vote, with far-left protesters standing outside the Senate chanting “shame, shame, shame” in unison like mindless zombies.

Watch scenes from the eerie protests below:

While it’s not clear whether rain was originally forecast for the Washington, D.C., area, it appears the city wound up being flooded with liberal tears.

Footage from the protests spurred mockery and derision from those classical liberals, libertarians, and conservatives who’ve grown accustomed to the collective left behaving like spoiled children whenever they fail to get their way.

See some of the mockeries below:

Naturally, the left-wing media joined in the wailing and gnashing of teeth, with the New York Daily News’ whole editorial board shaming the GOP-led Senate, and left-wing commentators at CNN nearly breaking into tears on air.

Take CNN’s Chris Cuomo, a pretend journalist.

“You should be mad as hell, and you need to show these people you will not take it anymore!” he said following the Senate’s vote late Friday.

Listen:

While it’s not clear what exactly that was, it certainly wasn’t objective, non-biased journalism …

CNN’s Jake Tapper also expressed some anger, though not as viscerally.

“It is striking that there is a national security adviser for President Trump, who is out there basically waving his hands saying, ‘I would like to be subpoenaed’ … Even in that context, the Senate voted the way they did,” he complained.

Fact-check: FALSE.

Former national security adviser John Bolton hasn’t stated that he WANTS to testify. In the process of promoting his upcoming memoir, he’s shown a willingness to testify if called to the stand. There’s a stark difference.

Over at NBC meanwhile, just prior to the expected vote, contributor Jon Meacham framed the witness decision and its implication — that the trial is effectively over, and Trump will soon be acquitted (despite House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s delusional claims otherwise) — as proof that the president has become a king.

“Donald Trump may well have now become the most powerful president in American history. … President Trump is functionally a monarch at this point,” he complained.

“If the king does it, it’s okay. That’s what we’re seeing unfold in Washington right now. And I think all Americans, whether you support the President or you don’t should pause significantly and think about the long term implications of having a president who is above the law.”

Back on CNN, former journalist turned anti-Trump zealot Carl Bernstein capped off the evening by trotting out the “Trump is a dictator” canard.

“[W]hat we have here now is the Senate of the United States through the Republican leadership and membership has now joined hands with a tyrant,” he reportedly said.

However, lone Republican former Sen. Rick Santorum tried to offer some sensible perspective on the matter to his colleagues at CNN.

“[T]he House case as presented in the articles of impeachment is not sufficient on its face to vote to remove a president,” he bluntly explained during a discussion with Preet Bharara and Jeffrey Toobin.

“I’m talking about the articles of impeachment themselves. Not the witnesses, not the record. The actual allegations made against the President in Article I and Article II are, of themselves, insufficient to remove a president.”

Fact-check: TRUE.
