And you thought he couldn’t pull them up any higher, didn’t you?
We’ve reached the full blown crazy part of the impeachment saga, not to be confused with the full blown stupid portion that preceded it. Jerry Nadler is one of the Democrat impeachment managers and every time he speaks, I’m pretty sure Nancy Pelosi regrets every giving him a leadership position. He took the floor to give closing arguments last night and in doing so, did incredibly damage to whatever case he was attempting to make.
For example, did you know that Trump, the guy currently being impeached against his will, is a “dictator?”
"He is a dictator. This must not stand, and that is … another reason he must be removed from office." House manager Jerry Nadler closed out his remarks this afternoon with some of the most fiery language that's been heard so far directed at Pres. Trump. https://t.co/AyIXUvwxIu pic.twitter.com/ygGzhb6geJ

It’s pretty weird that Trump is a dictator, but Nadler is allowed to stand up in the Senate and trash him with misleading (and sometimes outright false) claims. That’s usually not a thing dictators allow to happen. Dictators also don’t get impeached in the first place. Last I checked, it’s pretty unusual for a dictator to have a press that relentlessly savages said dictator. You get the idea.
This is how you know Nadler and his Democrat gang of impeachment managers don’t have a case. All they’ve got left is supposition and hyperbole, which frustrates them to no end. That’s how you end up with the ridiculous show put on yesterday evening between Nadler and Adam Schiff. These are people who’ve lost all touch with reality and are simply flailing about, realizing they are going down with a sinking ship.
By no objective standard is Trump a “dictator.” If he was, Adam Schiff would be sitting in a jail cell about now. Conversely, Trump is one of the least dictatorial presidents of the last several decades. He’s taken his lumps from the court and accepted him. He hasn’t rammed through unconstitutional actions via executive order (or memorandum) like Barack Obama did. Normal people can not like Trump without making stupid, illogical charges that he’s a dictator and basically Hitler.
Nadler isn’t a normal person though. He’s a rabid partisan from New York who resides in a left-wing bubble of his own making. And for that, he’s about to crash and burn very badly.
