Trump Trolls Democrats As They Still Push To Impeach

On today’s show, we get into President Trump trolling Democrats about whether special counsel Robert Mueller will testify before Congress, and Democratic presidential candidates are struggling to explain how Trump’s economy is somehow not doing well, despite the lowest unemployment in 50 years.

It’s kind of funny.

Listen to the show:

Will Mueller testify or won’t he? Democrats have set a date for May 15th, but Mueller hasn’t confirmed he will appear, and President Trump tweeted Sunday that he doesn’t think he should.

The president didn’t say he wouldn’t allow Mueller to testify, just that he shouldn’t. He believes, probably correctly, Democrats just want to keep the story alive; that Mueller said everything he had to say in the report. But Democrats want Mueller to say those words on camera so the video can be played on an endless loop on cable and make its way to social media and possibly campaign ads.

Will it happen? Should it happen? We have the answers.

Democrats are still pushing to impeach the president, without really having any grounds for it. They’re trying to placate their radical base, but new polling shows they will risk losing independents, who they can’t win without. Which side will win?

The economy is booming, which makes running for president as a Democrat difficult. This leaves them scrambling to explain to the public how they don’t realize how bad they have it, or something.

On Sunday, two candidates tried different ways to deny the president any credit for an economy their party had previously sworn wasn’t possible. One claimed the credit belongs to “workers,” even though they claimed many people simply aren’t feeling it. The other, while claiming people aren’t feeling it as well, gave the credit to former President Obama. Neither addressed how, under Obama, Democrats said 2% growth was the “new normal” and manufacturing jobs were gone for good. They also promised Trump’s economic proposals would destroy the economy. Neither proved true, and we expose all of it.
