Suffice it to say, Wednesday was not a good day for Democrats and their allies in the mainstream media hoping Special Counsel Robert Mueller would breathe new life into the beaten-to-death “Russian collusion” hoax.
Following the bumbling congressional testimony of Mr. Mueller, the media was forced to admit what an epic disaster the special counsel’s testimony truly was, and, naturally, it was compiled into a video montage with the song “Bad Day” playing over it, which can be viewed below. The video was posted by conservative Tim Young.
As covered by The Daily Wire, the media reaction to Mueller was abysmal; James Barrett noted that “painful” and “disaster” became “refrains online among several high-profile media figures” with regard to Mueller’s performance, while other media figures admitted that the 74-year-old was “shaky,” “confused” and “sluggish.”
Fox News’ Chris Wallace, who is oftentimes highly critical of President Donald Trump, wondered if Mueller was actually “in charge” of his report on the investigation at all. “This has been a disaster for the Democrats, and I think it’s been a disaster for the reputation of Robert Mueller,” he said, adding, “I think it does raise questions about the degree to which he actually was in charge and in control of this report because he doesn’t seem very much in control or in charge of what the final report was.”
CNN, too, ripped the showing from Mueller. CNN senior political commentator and former Obama Chief Strategist David Axelrod said Mueller had a “very, very painful” performance. “This is delicate to say, but Mueller, whom I deeply respect, has not publicly testified before Congress in at least six years. And he does not appear as sharp as he was then,” he said. “And it helps explain why Mueller wanted his aide nearby.”
CNN host Jake Tapper said that while Mueller was “sharp at times,” “we can’t avoid the fact that there were times in the hearing that he was not. … There were also times when it seemed like he was unfamiliar with parts of the investigation.”
And that’s true. Mueller was surprisingly unfamiliar with Fusion GPS, the firm behind the infamous Democrat-funded “Steele Dossier,” and former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski.
Over at NBC News, George Stephanopoulos asked a panel of politicos if “the ball” was “advanced” with regard to impeachment proceedings on Trump. He was shot down: “No, impeachment is over,” a pundit quickly answered.
And at MSNBC, it was admitted that rather than breathing life into it, Mueller “sucked the life” out of the Russia-Trump collusion narrative.
It’s clear that Democrats seeking to impeach President Trump need to find a new hoax, I mean avenue.
