Yawn! No one cares about Trump impeachment, not even some journalists

The impeachment of a sitting President of the United States is a serious business, and has happened only three times in U.S. history, the impeachment of President Donald Trump being the third time.

So it is significant that the reaction of the American people to the Trump impeachment is a collective yawn.

The American people’s utter disinterest in the Trump impeachment can be seen in the fact that TV ratings for the Senate impeachment trial are way lower than the average ratings of daytime soap operas. (See DCG’s post, “Broadcast networks’ impeachment viewership falls short of soap operas”)

It is noteworthy that even journalists are disinterested in the Trump impeachment.

Journalist Chadwick Moore is the former Editor-at-Large of gay magazines Out and The Advocate, who became a conservative because of the “severe liberal backlash” against his 2016 profile of gay conservative provocateur Milo Yiannopolos for Out.

Writing for Spectator USA, Jan. 29, 2020, Moore confessed that he had to say “no” to two requests to discuss impeachment from RT International and Buck Sexton’s radio show because, as he put it, he hasn’t followed a word of it or “watched one second of it,” nor does he intend to.

Podcaster Andrew Espitallier, who c0-hosts a channel called The Right Latino, also discovered Americans’ disinterest in the impeachment.

Last Saturday across 30 blocks in Manhattan for over three hours, Espitallier asked average New Yorkers their impressions and opinions on Trump’s impeachment trial, but could not find a single person who was even remotely interested. Espitallier told Moore: “Here I am, in the middle of ultra-liberal New York City, and literally no one cares. I was shocked.”

Moore writes:

This is only the third time in history a president has been impeached and the first time that absolutely no one cares. That’s the only interesting thing about it, how disinterested people are. Whereas most journalists run like cats with laser pointers wherever the Democratic party tells them to go, a good journalist ought to assess what is worthy of the public’s attention and everything about the Democrats’ behavior since day one of this presidency points to frivolity and insincerity. It is a historic moment any way you look at it, yet no one can be bothered to give a damn. What a wonderful ‘screw you’ to the establishment. If the media won’t starve the misbehaving, temper-tantrum throwing brats of the Democratic party of attention, then thank goodness the average American is.

Last week, each of the three networks barely managed to crack one million views for the Democrats’ opening remarks, and even that number sounds high. By comparison, daytime soap operas banked 11 million views the same week. While Slurrer of the House Nancy Pelosi was yammering on about Russia conspiracy theories (wait, I thought this was about Ukraine?) and Adam Schiff was doing whatever, many more Americans were more interested in what was happening on Days of Our Lives, where Sarah and Adrienne were in a car accident. Adrienne later died from the injuries, and after Sarah’s baby died, Xander passed off Kristen’s daughter as Sarah’s. Fans of General Hospital were irked that impeachment proceedings pre-empted the show, forcing antsy soap fan blogs to host discussions about whether or not Nina will take back Valentin.

The media is also very ticked off that Americans don’t care. MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and Chris Hayes appeared on the verge of tears that no one is paying attention. They can’t seem to wrap their minds around why all us hillbillies and rubes just don’t care. Senators were reported to be falling asleep during the proceedings last week and popping out to give media interviews….

It’s also, literally, my job to follow the news and I decided, nah, not this time. Don’t care!….

Any way you slice it, the Democrats don’t come out looking good once the history books are written, and that’s putting it mildly. The people have spoken, they’ve impeached impeachment. As the crowning achievement of the Democrats’ last four years, that ought to greatly concern them. If there’s anything that points to a Trump mega-landslide in 2020, it is how Americans have turned their back on impeachment. What’s yet to be seen is whether this spectacle was the beginning of new, dark era in American politics, where attempted coups by the opposition party become the norm, or just more free comedy from our bumbling friends on the left.

Sarah and Adrienne were in a car accident and this is the first I’ve heard of it. Now I’m pissed. C’mon, wrap this Peach Mint Circus sh*t show up, never mind witnesses, nobody cares. The first time a president has been impeached without being charged with a crime. Astounding. Meanwhile DJT has a rally in blue heavily-unionized NJ at a venue with 7000 seats and there were over 100K requests for tickets. A Bernie 2020 staffer was there and he was heard to mutter, “We’re gonna need a bigger gulag.”

I haven’t watched any of it, just “highlights”. As for watching this Schiff/NastyNancy/Nadless three-clown circus, I’d rather eat dirt. Or floss an alligator

I didn’t watch ANYTHING the Dems were saying,because,by nature,I knew it’d ALL be lies,misrepresentation,partial disclosure and other forms of BS. I’m kinda half-listening to the questions being asked of the Senate and “managers”. Naturally,the Dems are working their lying asses off to MAKE us believe they REALLY DO have a case. The big concern seems to involve whether or not to accept more witnesses so as to let John Bolton take HIS shot at torpedoing Trump. Yeah-there’s damaging stuff in his NEW BOOK,but why wasn’t anything said earlier on about him testifying? The Dems HAD to have known about the… Read more »

There is nothing really damaging in Bolton’s stupid book, the “relevant” passages refer to events that took place before the election and don’t even mention Ukraine or Biden. A nothingburger. total BS

And, so, can we predict, even with the nuanced “intrigue” of the tell-all “whiff” of the aura that resided for a time next to real POWER….however frail and faint….that Bolton’s book will STILL fly out of bookstores and venues with the same alacrity and strength that did Hillary’s post election whine-fest? Maybe a couple thousand books? The rest/detritus to be shoveled into pellet stoves for fuel, bought for pennies, to heat energy-conscious homes. :).

Trump will be acquitted before Bolton’s book is even officially released but that won’t stop the leftards from buying it, gearing up their tiny minds for Peach Mint 2 – The Sequel. But in all likelihood it will end up in garage sales by summer. I’m prepared to go as high as 25 cents just so I can use it to feed one of my campfires. Unless The State bans campfires to Save The Planet. The unanswered question is why was a slime weasel like Bolton even allowed to have any input re: foreign policy? To appease the neo-cons with… Read more »

I might be inclined to watch if Pedo Joe makes an appearance. He’s a member of The Club so they’ll lob softball questions at him but there’s always a chance he’ll forget his Poli-Grip and his dentures will pop out again on live TV. Then we’ll see the “news” anchors making frantic throat-cutting gestures

I’m watching bit & pieces, and have come to believe the Dem House Managers have completely lost touch with reality. I think they’re being controlled by a tiny, mouthy faction of their party (led by AOC et al.) The telling thing is to listen to the reactions of callers to CSpan each day; they are overwhelmingly either in support of Trump and his team OR sick of their Dem party trying to make a mockery of the system. There are loud, obnoxious voices in FB forums and elsewhere, but they’re not legion, and others are quick to note that the… Read more »

The talking heads were giving their impressions on ABC an hour ago. It’s just amazing their mass delusional state. Even (to some extent) Terry Moran, who for whatever reason has been used as a foil to the progressive morons on recent Sunday morning news-wrap shows… What was that theory about folks being brain-fogged years ago to later do the gov’t’s bidding? I kinda think they all drank it. No normal, intelligent person who listened to or read the process through the House and Senate could possibly come away from the circus thinking the allegations had been proven. I don’t think… Read more »
