    The problem with America over the past 2 decades has been the rise in popularity of reality TV and social media culture here. Trump represents a symptom of that problem, alongwith the corruption he represents.

    TV addiction makes people dumb and, more does social media/reality TV addiction. And many of his supporters who voted for him wanted to be “entertained” non stop by a reality TV president who’ll constantly be in the news for outrageousness. Trump knows that very well and thus his rallies and tweets resemble crude stand up comedy, roasting whoever he wishes, to “trigger entertain” the mentalities of his supporters. And it’s not surprising the GOP always selects such “larger than life” theatrical candidates, first with Reagen, then Bush Jr and now Trump who is the worst of them all. Ironically, Jeb Bush had already warned about this in 2016.

    While impeachment would be a good thing, I’m also hopeful for a good tarring and feathering.

      Tar and feathers would be a much better look for trump than fake orange and comb-over blonde. But then again, buried 6 feet under ground would be a better look for trump too, and that would DEFINITELY MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

    Well you know if Trump is impeached, the Democrats still wont get in the White House, and they lose the other House as well….

    It is to stop a corrupt president, it is to prevent abuse of power that the founding fathers created the articles of impeachment. He denies and ignores the very foundations of American republic. He shall be removed 🙏🙏⚖️⚖️⚖️🇺🇸

    Please excuse my ignorance but I’m wondering how can an impeached president still remain in office?

    Trump will never allow Mike Pence to become president. He’s going to throw him under the bus real soon.

      I hope you’re right (and I seriously think you may be). tRump definitely CAN NOT STAND to see anyone appear to be better than him. His mental illness simply won’t allow it.

    After the impeachment trial in the senate is complete, any senator that does not vote for removal IS on the wrong side of history and their names will go down in infamy. The majority of Americans are not as stupid as the media and the administration think we are!!

    🤴Trump is looking for an exit strategy. Too bad he just won’t negotiate with anyone. Rather than being a president, he wages war against anyone who dares to challenge him. Public office is not like a personal relationship where you can use money to buy desperate things and people. He should have looked for solutions and should have listened to advisers.

    ****MEDIA SUCCESS**** — Super segment, Chris! Great to have you back, hoping you continue being that gracious, astute, upbeat character displayed here. Kudos also to good panel contributions, albeit in slight disagreement. Democrats doing their job, now it’s up to media and public to hold Congressional Republicans accountable, insuring Senate conviction successful in Senate. Build it, and the Republican cowards WILL come! How badly does media and public want it? We CAN make it happen! Please refrain from expectations of negative outcome in Senate, which is detrimental, diminishes norms and standards, and insidiously normalizes and condones Republican’s abdication of their oath and office, as well as the over-politicization of impeachment, which should never be a partisan issue, despite its political components.

    This is what happens, when you elected a vulgar, narcissistic, uneducated, babbling con man as president. It’s the fault of Mitt Romney, Nancy Peloso, the Libral Fake Media, Hillary, and Satan that he is in the precarious situation he is. If it’s up to him, a very stable genius, he won’t be in this situation… the argument of a shameless lying sexual predatory con artist.

I am sorry I missed the announcement of his illness, because he’s a good guy, who deserves our thoughts and prayers. I hope his surgery was completely successful and he will be A-OK for many years to come. Welcome back, Mr. Matthews. Continue to help our nation hear the truth and defeat Pres. Trump one way or the other.

    I think Bennett is right that impeachment is inevitable and necessary. I think he’s wrong by lazily assuming it can’t lead to Senate conviction.
    Of course he’s following a safe consensus view and editorial line. But that isn’t what makes a good reporter. Take it from a career journalist – you consider and present the possibilities and don’t just stick to the cosy ground. You don’t even have to stick your neck out with a prediction even when people press you for one, but don’t just blandly presume what seems obvious, but rarely is. You’re supposed to encourage critical debate based on your detailed knowledge, not play it safe. And if all you care about is never having been wrong, you’ll never be right either.
