Nicole Wallace the other day said that Fox host Laura Ingraham is many things, but stupid is not one of them, so she holds her entirely responsible for the dumb things she says. Here’s the latest one. She says Trump can’t be impeached because, while bribery is mentioned as a reason for impeachment, attempted bribery is not.
LAURA INGRAHAM (HOST): Okay. Here’s the problem, yeah, of course Nancy, it’s in the Constitution, we can read. The president may be impeached for bribery, treason, or high crimes and misdemeanors. But even assuming the Democrats’ strained and ridiculous interpretation of the facts, and I do not assume them but just for the sake of their argument, attempted bribery isn’t in the Constitution. Remember, Ukraine got its military aid. It was 14 days delayed. Big deal.
I continue to be amazed that someone can say something that freaking idiotic with a straight face, and on national television no less. There’s just no shame once partisanship enters the equation.
