The mainstream media has had a heyday with President Trump’s impeachment scandal, and his acquittal has done little to quell the fervor.
On Wednesday, it became official: President Trump was predictably acquitted by the Republican-controlled Senate in a vote that was largely down party lines. The only noteworthy outlier seemed to be Utah Senator and frequent Trump critic Mitt Romney, who provided an eight minute speech explaining his personal reasoning behind his vote convict the President.
On Thursday, Trump excoriated his impeachment foes as well in a powerful speech that was given, appropriately, at high noon.
This victory lap has seemingly triggered the liberal media, however, with Chris Matthews of MSNBC insinuating that Trump was speaking in the sort of way that a cult leader would.
Matthews said, “The evil part or I should say the serious part was the revenge contract he signed basically against what he calls the deep state, going after Peter Strzok and Page, and Comey and the author of the dossier — going back to the roots of the investigation that led to the impeachment in the House. He wants to get to the root of it. He wants to root it out. He wants to say it was all evil by his enemies. There was no truth to it.”
He continued, “I think especially a promise of what’s to come, not only lack of any reasonable divided government, he is at war with Nancy Pelosi in a moral fight. They are talking about banishing Mitt Romney from the party. That’s the language of a cult, banishment. It’s not the language of the Constitution or our American tradition. Banishment for the one guy who dared in the United States Senate to vote to convict.”
Matthews would go on to say that this was the “the starkest fight I’ve seen declared by any American politician”.
