LEGENDARY SMACKDOWN!

Vice President Mike Pence has President Trump’s back on every single occasion.

That’s what made him the best choice possible when candidate Trump was choosing a VP running mate.

Now, Pence wrecked Obama-era Attorney General Eric Holder for implying America was never great – and he didn’t even need one word to do it.

Not one word.

From Free Beacon:

Former attorney general Eric Holder said that America has never been “great,” during a Wednesday night appearance on MSNBC’s The Beat.

Holder’s comment came in response to a question from host Ari Melber about how it was possible to call America a “leader as a democracy” during the 1800s when women and African-Americans could not vote.

“When I hear these things about ‘Let’s make America great again,’ I think to myself: ‘Exactly when did you think America was great?'” Holder said, in reference to the President Donald Trump’s slogan, which he used frequently at rallies and on merchandising during the 2016 presidential election.

WATCH:

It took one tweet from Pence to rip Holder to shreds.

From Daily Wire:

On Thursday, the vice president fired back at Eric Holder on Twitter by posting photos of Martin Luther King Jr., the moon landing, the planting of the flag at Iwo Jima, and, of course, George Washington crossing the Delaware.

SEE IT:

Holder then shot back, reversing his position entirely:

In response to the vice president, Holder got a bit more nuanced by saying America IS great and must continue being greater. “America IS great. And can-and must-be greater still,” wrote Holder on Twitter. “‘Make America great again’ means YOU think America is not great now-and is backward looking. America is at its best when we look forward, embrace an uncertain future and make it ours. That is what defines American greatness.”

Eric wants to do away with the “undemocratic” electoral college.

He tweeted:

A good reform measure to support. Change the Electoral College by having a state’s electoral votes go to the national popular vote winner – not the person who won the state. The candidate who gets the most votes – nationally – is elected. Real democracy.

It’s hard to forget about his role in Operation Fast and Furious.

SMH.

First Day Of Public Impeachment Hearings Turns Up The Pressure On Moderate Democrats

Published

on

Much attention is now being cast toward moderate Democrats in the House, especially in swing districts, with the first day of public hearings in the impeachment inquiry into President Trump now under wraps. The day finished up without any major revelations coming to light, highlighting the weakness of the Democrats’ key witnesses in the case against the president. Many of these witnesses are relying on second-hand information, having not interacted even once with the president. Here’s more from Fox News: At one point in Wednesday’s hearing, Rep. Mike Quigley, D-Ill., even appeared to embrace hearsay testimony, claiming that “hearsay can be much better evidence than direct” and that “countless people have been convicted on hearsay because the courts have routinely allowed and created, needed exceptions to hearsay.” It was unclear which of those limited exceptions would apply to Wednesday’s testimony — and whether Quigley’s argument would persuade critical swing-vote Democrats. The House is now comprised of 431 members, meaning Democrats need 217 yeas to impeach Trump. There are currently 233 Democrats, so Democrats can only lose 16 of their own and still impeach the president. 31 House Democrats represent more moderate districts that Trump carried in 2016. Freshman Rep. Elissa Slotkin, D-Mich. — who flipped a GOP district in 2018 that Trump won by 7 points in 2016 — told Fox News that she was tentatively weighing all the evidence. “My constituents expect me to make an objective decision,” Slotkin said as the hearings concluded, “not one based on an hour of testimony.” https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1194710194166497281 There’s also a report floating around that is suggesting that if House Democrats impeach the president, Senate Republicans are going to hold a lengthy trial that will “scramble” the 2020 Democratic presidential primary by making it mandatory for several of the contenders to stay put in…

Donald Trump Jr. Shares His Thoughts On First Day Of Impeachment Hearings: ‘I’ve Never Seen Anything More Ridiculous’

Published

Donald Trump Jr. was not at all impressed with the first day of public hearings in the impeachment inquiry against his dad, President Donald Trump, noting that he’s “never seen anything more ridiculous.” The first day of hearings wrapped up without a single drop of new major revelations. Speaking on “Hannity,” Trump Jr. noted that while nothing major was revealed, the whole day showcased the weakness of the case Democrats have against his father. Here’s more from Fox News: “You see exactly what America voted against in 2016, career government bureaucrats doing their thing,” the executive vice president of the Trump Organization said. “Everything was hearsay, ‘I heard it from a friend, who heard it from a friend, how heard it from a friend.’ I’m saying, ‘this is a joke.’” At one point in Wednesday’s hearing, Rep. Mike Quigley, D-Ill., even appeared to embrace hearsay testimony, claiming that “hearsay can be much better evidence than direct” and that “countless people have been convicted on hearsay because the courts have routinely allowed and created, needed exceptions to hearsay.” It was unclear which of those limited exceptions would apply to Wednesday’s testimony — and whether Quigley’s argument would persuade critical swing-vote Democrats. Trump commented on Quigley’s statements telling Sean Hannity, “Then I heard the Democrats, and this is when you realize how bad or, frankly, nonexistent their case is, ‘well hearsay is often times much better than regular evidence.’ I’m saying, ‘did that guy say that with a straight face?’” Trump then went on to compare Quigley’s comments to “the telephone game we learned about in kindergarten.” “So it’s better to have heard it from a friend who heard it from a friend who heard it from a friend than to have heard it with your own ears? I mean that’s the…
