If this doesn’t make you chuckle then you’re a Democrat. Watch Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) get followed and heckled by protesters after voting to send the sham articles of impeachment to the House. The best part is when it appears that Nadler is pressing the wrong button and instead of closing, the elevator doors keep opening subjecting him to more verbal abuse. “Shame on you Chairman Nadler,” says a protester in a MAGA hat while Nadler fiddles with elevator buttons. “Trump is your president and he will be in 2020. Shame on you sir.”

God bless America. Polls show that Americans do not favor impeachment, but the Democrats are pushing ahead anyway.

According to the Monmouth poll – which was released Wednesday – 50 percent said the president should not be impeached and removed from office, with 45 percent calling for impeachment and removal from the White House. The numbers are little changed from Monmouth’s November poll, when a 51-44 percent majority opposed impeachment and removal.

Fundraising efforts by Trump and GOP are through the roof. Brad Parscale, Trump’s campaign manager, told reporters Thursday “This lit up our base, lit up the people that are supporters of the president. They’re frustrated, they’re upset, and that motivates voters.” He continued, “That has put money in our bank. It has added volunteers to our field program,” he said. “It’s filled up the rallies easier.”

So, yeah. Looks like impeachment might turn out to be a big bust for Democrats.
