Mollie Hemingway: Impeachment Is ‘Pornography For The Trump-Deranged’

Democrats promised to come to Washington to work on health care and other issues, but ended up just freaking out about impeaching Donald Trump instead.


During a Fox News panel on how Democrats ignore the booming success of the economy and President Trump’s trade policy, Federalist Senior Editor Mollie Hemingway pointed out many Democrats and NeverTrumpers focus on impeachment instead.

“Impeachment is sort of like pornography for the Trump-deranged,” Hemingway said. “It really does point out this week how certain people are handling their power in Washington versus others.”

“You have Republicans, Mitch McConnell confirming justices. You have Republicans in Congress working with deregulation, as is the president,” she said. “Then you have Democrats who said that they were going to come to DC and work on health care and all these other issues, instead spending their time really freaking out about Donald Trump.”

Trump complained on Thursday about the lack of attention and credit the media has given to the passage of the United States-Mexico-Canada trade deal.

“I did the biggest deal ever in the history of our country yesterday in terms of trade… and that was the second story to a total hoax,” Trump said.
