With Democrats opening up an impeachment trial against President Trump, CNN is having a field day.
They’ve been waiting for this for years.
But one stunning report just destroyed CNN’s big impeachment lie, and left the network speechless.
The narrative in Washington was that if Democrats voted to impeach President Trump, it would surely help them defeat him in 2020.
This is the best-case scenario for the party since there is no mathematical way that Nancy Pelosi can actually remove the President from office.
With Mitch McConnell and the Republicans in control of the Senate, there’s little chance that Democrats can successfully win the upcoming trial.
But in CNN’s eyes, that was never the point.
Instead, the goal is to destroy the President’s credibility and make it easier to beat him in the upcoming election.
But there’s just one massive problem. The facts aren’t on their side.
A brand new poll just came out showing that a clear majority of Americans reject impeachment, and it could be a sign that Pelosi’s gambit is about to backfire.
But CNN simply can’t believe it.
When CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin covered the shock poll that showed support for impeachment was collapsing across the board, he was in complete denial.
Newsbusters reports, “Toobin simply refused to believe the results of CNN’s own poll showing a rather dramatic drop in Democrat support for impeachment: from 90% down to 77%.”
“I don’t believe that poll for one second, the 90 to 77%. I don’t believe it. It makes no sense that that number would change like that . . . David, that poll is wrong. Just because I said so, okay?” Toobin asked on live television.
David Chalian, CNN’s political director, called out Toobin for rejecting the poll.
“I don’t know what’s not to believe. You call people on the telephone, you get their information. You pop out a survey. This is what those that we polled told us.”
At this point, CNN is in full denial mode over the fact that support for impeachment is dropping like a rock.
There’s no way the network can get on board with the idea that the American people aren’t in favor of overturning the 2016 election and removing the President from office.
What’s more, CNN is once again melting down, and showing the rest of the country just how biased the network is against any Republican elected to office, especially President Trump.
“Couple this CNN poll with the new USA Today poll showing Trump beating all contenders, and Democrats have something to sweat about today. It’s obvious there are Democrats who worry about backlash. Toobin can never believe when Democrats don’t fully back CNN’s agenda,” adds Newsbusters.
This is a devastating indictment of CNN’s blatant political bias.
And it’s one where the network is plainly presented as a mouthpiece for the Democratic Party.
