Salem Mayor Kim Driscoll has made a name for herself in the last 24 hours by going on CNN and fact checking President Trump’s assertion that the impeachment process is similar to the Salem Witch Trials.

CNN: The mayor of Salem, Massachusetts, told President Donald Trump on Tuesday to “learn some history” after he claimed that the people accused in the Salem witch trials had received more due process than he has gotten in the impeachment inquiry. Mayor Kim Driscoll pointed out on Twitter that the Salem witch trials that occurred in 1692 included the “absence of evidence” when “powerless, innocent victims” were hanged or pressed to death. Driscoll noted that in Trump’s case, the accused is among the most powerful and privileged people in the world, and she said the case involves “ample evidence” and “admission of wrongdoing.”
Learn some history:
1) Salem 1692 = absence of evidence+powerless, innocent victims were hanged or pressed to death
2)#Ukrainegate 2019 = ample evidence, admissions of wrongdoing+perpetrators are among the most powerful+privileged

Hold on just a second. Are you telling me that the President of the United States used hyperbole? That in and of itself sounds impeachable! For a minute there I thought he was being literal, rather than using a commonly used hyperbolic term. Ya know, like screaming that the world is ending in 11 years because of climate change, pretending that Bret Kavanaugh is a serial rapist, and getting outraged that a boy from Kentucky smiled when an asshole was banging a drum in his face. That kind of hyperbole. Speaking of….

Yea, I’m sure Nancy Pelosi woke up today with a bad case of the feelz. Nothing hyperbolic about that. This is literally the day that every democrat from a solid blue district has been waiting for since 2016 – the day they get to impeach Trump. And even though it ultimately means nothing because he won’t be convicted in the Senate, at least they can get some high fives from the echo chamber they serve when they go back home.
I’ll tell you what’s not hyperbole or an exaggeration though – Salem Mayor Kim Driscoll being good friends with a violent Antifa member who threatens families she disagrees with politically. Here she is with plus sized Antifa therapist Jennifer Nakhai.
Here’s Jennifer Nakhai playing dress up with her Antifa friends, vowing to commit violence in the name of “orange man bad,” and threatening small children.
But please, tell us more about what a good person you are Mayor Driscoll. You sure hang out with some swell folks.
The best part about impeachment is that they think it’s a good idea. You walk down the street and ask 100 people what this impeachment is about and the only people who know what’s going on are political junkies and talking heads on Twitter. No one else cares. Normal people who work for a living see a healthy economy, a lack of wars, and a President who seems to upset the worst people imaginable on Facebook. They also see a bunch of congressman from districts they don’t live in voting to try to remove the President they elected. A bunch of these congressman are brand new and come from districts Trump won in 2016. In other words, they’re all going to be one term congressman. Why? Because people in those states oppose impeachment by a good margin.
In a dozen October and November polls on impeachment in battleground states like Arizona, Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina and Wisconsin, an average of 44% of those surveyed supported impeachment, with 51% opposed, according to the Post.
As a direct result of impeachment hearings Trump has gained support in every state he needs to win.
Turns out when you tell these people that their vote doesn’t matter because they’re not as smart as a waddling pork dumpling like Jerry Nadler, they don’t take too kind to that.
At the end of the day all they did was keep Trump on as President and increase the chances that he wins and they lose the House. Granted, people like AOC, Nancy Pelosi, Jim McGovern, and Ilhan Omar don’t have anything to fear because they live in the bluest of blue districts. But people like Connor Lamb in Western Pennsylvania can kiss their seat goodbye.
The biggest loser in all of this is really Hunter Biden. I can’t help but feel bad for him. All that guy wants to do is party with strippers and live his best life. He didn’t ask for anything of this. And now that the Republicans control the Senate they’re going to air all his dirty laundry. He must be sitting at home collecting $50,000 a month and sticking needles in his Nancy Pelosi voodoo doll. Sucks to be him, but I wouldn’t turn down partying with the guy.
P.S. This is what real winning looks like.
Quite the split screen in DC today: While the Dem-controlled House is impeaching Trump, the GOP-controlled Senate is voting on confirmations of 13 judges — reminding the GOP what it's gotten out of its grand bargain with Trump.
