Um, did he not see “The Bad News Bears”? The Bears were the heroes in that film and were awesome:
If there’s any unfairness in these proceedings, it’s the astounding mismatch between the high skill and preparation of the House managers and the rambling, dissembling, and gaslighting of @realDonaldTrump’s counsel. It’s like the New York Yankees versus the Bad News Bears.

This ending is classic!
We guess he got tired of “The Caine Mutiny” analogy:
I know that like Lt. Greenwald’s view of Captain Queeg in the Caine Mutiny, some people think @realDonaldTrump should be given support in light of, and not removed for, his mental failings. But unlike Queeg, Trump has zero record of honorable service and zero capacity for it.

Anyway, be careful what you wish for. Voters would’ve picked the Bears over the Yankees in a heartbeat, which airline-etiquette expert Tom Nichols acknowledges in the most condescending way possible, of course:
The problem is that a significant number of people in America hate competence and intelligence, and prefer the mookery of the Trump team because it makes them feel less inadequate themselves. https://t.co/Q4smhIYBWE

See you in November, Yankees:
However, in this case the Bad News Bears have their own television network and a loyal fan base that believes the team is winning the World Series regardless of how they play. https://t.co/1sB53a1yzj
