CBS’s “The Good Fight” to tackle Trump impeachment

I thought Mueller was suppose to be working on that?

From Hollywood Reporter: “Trump fatigue,” a common affliction for anyone who’s consumed popular culture or media at any point over the past two years, is becoming a problem for TV characters as well.

Christine Baranski’s character will struggle with her own political ennui in the second season of CBS All Access’ The Good Fight, per series creators Michelle and Robert King. On the bright side, the showrunners revealed that the No. 1 on their call sheet will also get a storyline about potentially impeaching the current U.S. president.

“The Democratic Committee is auditioning firms to take over impeachment hearings,” Robert King explained to reporters on Saturday morning at the TV critics press tour in Pasadena. “A lot of it is a debate about how Trump could be impeached.”

But this isn’t exactly speculative fiction. Hypothetical impeachment, fictionalized and real, largely hinges on a fruitful midterm for Democrats — so no presidential parody will actually have to face down Baranski’s Diane Lockhart during the upcoming run of the Good Wife spinoff. It will be in the conversation, though. Added King, “These are people who are really counting their chickens before they’re hatched.”

Like The Good Wife before it, The Good Fight aggressively leans into politics. The drama retooled its first episode in the wake of the 2016 presidential election and touched on the effects of Trump being in office throughout the freshman season. It is also approaching the issue from a decidedly progressive point of view, with its lead and supporting characters overwhelmingly liberal.

The Kings, speaking at a panel on politics and social issues alongside several other CBS showrunners, confirmed a few other hot-button issues that their series will be tackling in its return — including sexual harassment. The Good Fight will riff on Ronan Farrow’s struggle to get his Harvey Weinstein expose on the air at NBC News by focusing an episode on a journalist trying to expose a liberal star on their own broadcast network, a fact that doesn’t sit will with their bosses.

“We thought almost everything would have been torn apart on this issue,” Robert King copped, acknowledging that it’s been more enduring than they originally thought when they broke the story.

The Good Fight returns Mar. 8.

  1. TDS: The longest running paranoid-delusional condition of the Left. It is a serious mental illness characterized by the inability to recognize and exist within reality.

    • D.T. Osborn . . . . Amen to that! You really framed that correctly when you wrote, “It is a serious mental illness characterized by the inability to recognize and exist within reality.” Bravo! I just wish that more libtards would wake up and realize that they are in the throws of “serious mental illness,” rather than having an epiphany worthy of Einstein.

    • Maryaha, I’m afraid it is NOT going to happen, in spite of all the slander, No matter how much fake news, defamation of character and hate, WE ELLECTED HIM AND HE IS THE PRESIDENT, I couldn’t give a dam if “they” say he is derange, that’s the way I like HIM. Only DONALD J. TRUMP can flaunt his endeavors, I love it because he’s done it all by himself and owes nothing to nobody……and that does rub many people the other way. A million HURRAHS FOR DONALD J. TRUMP.

    • Maryaha . . . . but it sure torques the jaws of the rest of us who are looking on, scratching our heads, wondering WHAT THEY THINK THEY ARE GOING TO USE AS A REASON TO IMPEACH!!! If anyone can give me a good answer to that one, I will be greatly releaved–as it is, I just cannot relate to the impeachment movement.

    Just can not figure the liberal mind. I have yet to hear a reasoned liberal argument. Their every position is anti-U.S..

  4. I believe that the Republicans are going to gain seats in both the House and Senate. All the Democrats offer is their hatred for Trump and his turning America back up to a healthy nation and finding more ways to take our money and freedom and make us their drone slaves. Not a platform that most American citizens want. Also, I’m sure they’re planning on ramping up the tactic of stealing as many seats as they can, but God’s in control now and by His grace, it won’t happen. We the People are too smart and aware for this group of puny little demons. They shall not pass!

  5. Teflon Don! I dont believe I have ever seen any human in my life, take as much as DJT and still be standing. This must be the New York way, that he has definitely mastered in his 71 years. I pray for him and this country every night. The left will be in for one heck of a fight if something happens to him. As for hollywierd, I think they are doing themselves in….its just taking longer than I had hoped for them to implode and become a nothing industry. I am getting ready to cut my cable and comcast is offering me every deal under the sun, to stay! I know I will be making that cut soon. MAGA Trump #2020!

    • Teri . . . . . Amen and amen! I too, am amazed at his resiliency. Yet he picks himself up and marches forward. Sometimes coming up with better ideas on the second try at something.

      I agree all of us need to pray for President Trump. It is obvious so far that Heaven has protected him, and even the fact that he won the election–that was nothing short of a miracle.

  6. They are so sure of their importance and their power over society. But trends prove they have been cut loose from being influential.

  7. I really LIKED “The Good Wife”,in spite of its Liberal stand,(or maybe because it gave me a chance to see up close how they operate?),but I’m not going into that new series. The first series was about a lot of different scenarios,but in the new one it appears they’ve focused on ONE target,and that ruins it for me. I also don’t appreciate their on-going attack on the President-I take THAT sorta personally.

    • truck . . . I’m with you, I feel absolutely personally violated by those who throw such filthy lies, and words of hatred toward our President.

      The rest of us had to sit back for eight years and watch the “Great Pretender” bow and scrape at the feet of foreign leaders (Do you remember him bowing before Muslim leaders, it was quite a wonder that he didn’t suffer with a broken noggin from such deep bows.) NO US President should be acting in that manner while on the world stage. Or, how about pallets loaded to capacity with US currency, headed to Iran. Or, the time Obummer called out the police department because they had stopped the man, a black professor, when he was peeing in windows of his own house, as he had forgotten his keys . . . but POS, Obummer had no personal knowledge of why the police had stopped and questioned this particular man–other than he supposed it was because he was black. He found that nevertheless–the police were in the wrong. The rest of us had to suffer through all the blunders and acts of great stupidity that he was guilty of, yet we did not cry “impeachment.” The proggies definitely, without question suffer with mental illness.

  9. The Good Wife (prequel?) was like a playbook on how corrupt leftist/liberal politics work, characters based loosely on political power couple ( shades of clintons or obamas?), they even had a podesta type campaign manager, and episodes with appearances by valerie jarrett & donna brazile… As I watched it became clear the left has few if any morals, they truly believed they’d win the election….. Gay sex scenes are now mandatory diversion in script along w/ regular adultery… Rather educational but degenerates into more gay sex propaganda in the spin off The Good Fight… I’ll stay with The Hallmark Channel….

  10. I wonder if the term “civil war” means anything to these stinking commie-lib fascists.

    Obviously they suck at basic math.

    • The term “civility” certainly doesn’t. Amongst all the sedition the simple duty to honor the office seems to escape them. They are a crude and graceless bunch.
