This is where the rhetoric of the impeachment hearings has ended up. Rep. Hank Johnson, a member of the House Judiciary Committee, tried to make the point that there was an imbalance of power between President Trump and Ukrainian President Zelensky by comparing their heights. Trump is literally taller than Zelensky, and probably made Zelensky use smaller salt and pepper shakers too while he visited in New York.
But Johnson wasn’t done yet. He also illustrated that imbalance of power by suggesting that when Trump told Zelensky there was no pressure, Zelensky reacted as though Trump had his daughter “downstairs in the basement, duct-taped.” Somebody laughed at that line.
How completely unhinged Democrats have become in this Impeachment hearing?
Member of the Judiciary Committee Hank Johnson (D-GA) just said Impeachment is justified because:
1. Trump taller than Prez. Zelensky
2. Trump had Zelensky's daughter "in the basement duck taped"

Is this a SNL skit?

Hahaha. These people should not be in a position of power. These are the people making policy decisions? They are literally thinking at a 7th grade level. What real adult in a position of power and influence would say something like this in this type of hearing?

The people of Hank Johnson's district should be thoroughly embarrassed. Since they keep sending him back to Congress, I don't imagine they are, which says much about them.

Wait? What? Is this what he’s talking about? Trump in a big chair? Huh. Come on Trump couldn’t you shrink for this meeting? Good grief abuse of size right?! Geez pic.twitter.com/t3NiByncVS

Did he have one too many cocktails at lunch?

The Democrats’ ”testimonies”, statements, endless repetitions, etc. continue to devolve as the day wears on, and the blathering escalates. 🙄

Wow, really reaching far out into the liberal lunatic left on that one. Is that all they have?

@RepHankJohnson are you senile? This was the most insane statement coming out of the House. That says a lot being that all of the @HouseDemocrats have shown how ridiculous this whole farce has been. In 200 years they are going to wonder what kind of drugs you all have taken.

Exit question: Isn’t it a good thing when there’s an imbalance of power in the United States’ favor?
