I have no idea how you could watch that and vote for anything other than guilty as charged, the late-night host said Wednesday night.
What the House managers presented today was absolutely gripping, the late- night host said at the top of his monologue. They had never-before-seen videos of the rioters terrorizing congresspeople. Mitt Romney had to run, they had video of that. The mob was knocking out windows, banging on doors, looking to find Nancy Pelosi, chanting hang Mike Pence.
Among the most shocking new pieces of video, Kimmel explained, was of Pence and his family being evacuated from the building to get away from the army of dangerous imbeciles the president sent his way.
I have no idea how you could watch that and vote for anything other than guilty as charged, Kimmel declared. Trump should have been removed from office that day.
As his limited audience started to applaud, he continued, Heres how you know how damning this was. This trial was aired live on ABC, NBC, CNN, CBS. The only channel that cut away? Fox News. Gee, I wonder why?
In fact, Fox abruptly cut away from House impeachment manager Eric Swalwell mid- sentence so that viewers could hear from the hosts of The Five, who proceeded to denounce the entire trial as a waste of time.
The host also shared the news about how unhappy Trump reportedly was about how his lawyers handled themselves on Tuesday, even though, as ishonest reported, Wednesdays testimony put him in a really good mood.
They say the last time he was this mad was when he found out there was a Donald Trump Jr., Kimmel joked, before playing a clip of the former presidents son defending his dad on Hannity. Why didnt you drink bleach when your father told you to? he asked.
