Today was the first day of President Trump’s sham impeachment trial and it was about as exciting as an annual t00th cleaning.

The most interesting event was when House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff declared that if the Republicans don’t produce more witnesses and evidence then Trump will be declared guilty.

Wait. What?

Schiff told reporters:

If the Senate and the senate leadership … will not allow the calling of witnesses or the presentation of documents, If [Senate Majority Leader Mitch] McConnell makes this the first impeachment trial in history without witnesses or documents, it will not prove the president innocent. It will merely prove the Senate guilty of working with the president to obstruct the truth from coming out, so I do think that by structuring the trial this way, it furthers our case that what’s going on here really is a cover-up of evidence to the American people.
While McConnell says his newly unveiled resolution outlining the rules that will govern the Senate trial makes the process fair, Schiff argues otherwise, saying the guidelines “make it impossible to hear a fair trial.”

The Senate, nevertheless, is expected to approve the resolution. [Breitbart]

The rest of the impeachment trial followed the same tone – Democrats whining and wailing that if they don’t get their way that Trump will be found guilty.

Now how or what they’re going to find him guilty of is yet to be seen…

So to spare you the torture of reading any more mainstream media dribble covering this charade, we bring you the best reactions on social media, which sum up the events in a much more entertaining and less cringe-worthy fashion.

“If you can’t watch the Democrats’ impeachment argument, I summarize them here: Blah, blah, muh documents, watch this hoax video, blah, blah, muh documents.”

“Democrats choosing @RepZoeLofgren as an impeachment manager along with her performance today proves one major thing: They’re not serious about facts and truth. And they’ve totally given up.”

“Did the whistleblower have communication with Adam Schiff prior to the whistleblowing? If so, that’s called witness tampering. Adam Schiff should be a fact witness in the trial. Put him under oath. #ImpeachmentTrial”

“Spoiler alert: even the witnesses Democrats want to call would end up helping Trump’s case. #ImpeachmentTrial”

“SPOILER ALERT: President Trump was acquitted by the Senate in his Impeachment Trial. And it helped him win re-election.”

“@RepAdamSchiffsays a judge who didn’t agree to hear witnesses “would be taken out in handcuffs.” By analogy, he is saying the Senate should be imprisoned if it does not hear new witnesses. By the way, judges dismiss sham cases all the time. That’s what this is #ImpeachmentTrial”

“Patrick Philbin is making the argument that Democrats don’t want to deal with EVERY SINGLE SUBPOENA issued by House Democrats was invalid because they did not properly open the impeachment investigation That’s why Democrats were scared to go to court!”

“We are literally watching SNL in real time. Only difference is Adam Schiff is playing himself.”

“I know it’s wrong but I’m throughly enjoying Adam Schiff panic on the Senate floor and descend into total madness. I’m not sure the Democrats understand how bad this really is for them.”

“Now Schiff is talking about Republicans misleading the Senate. After spending 3 years as the leader of the Russia collusion tinfoil hat brigade, countless false leaks almost certainly attributed to him, and his sham one side only house process, this clown has 0 credibility!”

So in conclusion, the first day of this impeachment trial is a complete and utter joke, and will surely make the Dems look like even bigger fools than they do right now.
