Democrats Beg Trump to Stop Impeaching Himself So They Have Something to Do
Satire from The Borowitz Report
Quote:
WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—In an unexpected twist in the impeachment drama engulfing Washington, leading congressional Democrats have begged Donald Trump to stop impeaching himself so that they have something to do.

In a press conference on Friday morning, Representative Adam Schiff, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, and Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the House, both implored Trump to stop relentlessly spewing impeachable offenses, complaining that this practice was rendering their jobs irrelevant.

“Mr. President, as much as we appreciate your help, please, stop doing our work for us,” Pelosi said. “Give us a reason to get up in the morning and go to the office.”

“I know that you’re in no mood to do me a favor, Mr. President, but hear me out,” Schiff added. “I’m trained as a prosecutor. My entire life has been building to a case like your impeachment. But if you persist in impeaching yourself on an almost hourly basis, that really wrecks the challenge for me.”

Just minutes after the Democrats’ press conference, Trump appeared to turn a deaf ear to their entreaties, as he publicly asked the nations of Belgium, Turkmenistan, Malta, and Peru to dig up dirt on Joe Biden.

I agree. But you didn’t take the Borowitz Report as factual, right?

I confess I didn't actually read it. I fell for ____ in my haste, right?

Yeah, but Borowitz does pretty clever satire that fools lots of folks.

And it’s easy to do when real life and parody look so much alike.

Even though it's satire, Trump blatant admitting to the crime on TV does present a challenge for impeachment investigators. They have to deal with Trump and the GOP normalizing the admin's crimes (which they've been doing for a long time now). They like the well what do you expect a rabid jackal to do? defense.
