Impeach Trump? How? Another moronic try at impeachment by MSNBC

 

fake news about impeachment?  stupidity?

Another moronic try at impeachment.

MSNBC used the word impeachment 224 times in 18 hours.

Don’t go to MSNBC for facts on the Constitution. For the second day in a row, the network attempted to explain the process of “how Impeachment works.

” Once again, the cable channel screwed up. MSNBC Livehost Ali Velshi on Thursday lectured his viewers: “Think of the House as a prosecutor and the articles of impeachment is a document detailing the alleged crimes.” So far so good.

But then, an MSNBC graphic incorrectly trumpeted the number of senators needed to convict a president: “60 VOTES out of 100 SEATS.” No, it’s 67 senators.

Though his graphic got it wrong, Velshi himself gave the correct information. Today, that is. On Wednesday, he incorrectly asserted: “Two-thirds of the Senate, 60 as it stands right now, are needed to vote guilty for impeachment.” On that day, Velshi said of the House’s role in impeachment: “Next, the House votes. At least two-thirds of the chamber has to approve the impeachment.” No, just a simple majority is needed.

On Thursday, Velshi managed to get that section right, noting: “A simple majority is all that’s needed to approve the impeachment.” BUT he made another error. The host claimed: “The Senate acquitted Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton without impeaching them.” No, they were impeached in the House. Just not convicted in the Senate.

One might ask: Why is MSNBC giving daily updates attempting to explain the impeachment process? Another question might be: If they are going to explain impeachment, could Velshi and the network at least do so properly?

Firenze Sage opines:    If these idiots are so keen on impeaching Trump,you’d think they’d at least learn how to do it.

Or is it fake news?  The choice is fake news or stupidity.
