The media war against President Trump continues to play out as frustration builds over the Mueller report debacle with Democrats and their celebrity shills acting like crazed lunatics.
When the special counsel failed to deliver the smoking gun that would prove that Trump colluded with the Kremlin to cheat Hillary out of the presidency, plan B was for House authoritarians led by Rep. Jerrold Nadler who has had a vendetta against the POTUS for decades to abuse their power by conducting their own witch hunt.
However, impeachment is not going to be a slam dunk thanks to Saint Bob and with Republicans firmly in control of the Senate, its a major gamble for Democrats to even hold the hearings and risk a major electoral wipeout next November.
So the strategy from central command looks like a major entertainment industry blitzkrieg based on shaming Senate Republicans in order to pry away enough Trump haters like Mitt Romney and weak sisters like Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski to turn against Trump.
NBC’s flagship “Saturday Night Live” kicked off the narrative with a cold open on what it would take for GOP Senators to slink off into the enemy camp.
The cast portrayed Mitch McConnell, Collins and Lindsey Graham who was once again the target of the same type of homophobic smears that hypocritical virtue-signaling liberals would be screaming bloody murder about if they came out of the mouth of a conservative.

“Saturday Night Live” in its latest episode took aim at GOP Senators Mitch McConnell (Ky.), Lindsey Graham (S.C.) and Susan Collins (Maine) for their support of President Trump.
The NBC sketch comedy program mocked the three high-profile senators in a parody version of the network’s “Meet The Press.” Kyle Mooney, acting as host Chuck Todd, questioned cast members portraying the three senators on a range of topics, including what it would take for them to turn against the president.
According to the Washington Post, here are some lowlights of what can only be described as propaganda:
“When you have a president who’s a financial genius and a business Jesus, like Donald Trump, you just got to trust him,” Graham said, a parody of the over the top obsequiousness some have ascribed to the senator of late. “This man has lost 100 times more money than I’ve ever made.”
Todd noted that his guest had done a complete 180 from the independence he had appeared to flash during the presidential contest and early part of Trump’s presidency
Chuck, I am a man of conviction and principles,” Graham said. “Unless he can help me and then it’s, ‘new Lindsey, who’s this?’”
The segment also roasted Collins ruthlessly, skewering her as a woman who espouses beliefs that she simply cannot bear to stand up for in any substantive way.
“Chuck, I’ll be the first to admit that some of the things this administration is doing makes me want to shake my head vigorously and wag my finger once, perhaps twice,” she said at one point.
Todd tried suss out whether there was a limit to his guests willingness to back Trump. He asked, what if special counsel Robert S. Mueller III testified to Congress that the president had obstructed justice?
“I’d have to send a strongly worded email and send it straight to my drafts folder,” Collins said.
What if you found out Trump was a Muslim, Todd asked, an apparent jab about Islamophobia in the Republican Party.
Do we still get those tax cuts?” Graham responded, to Todd’s affirmation. “Well then I guess it’s salaam alaikum, Mr. President!”
Finally, exasperated by the line of questioning, Todd voiced the question point blank — is there absolutely anything Trump could do to lose your support?
His guests thought about the query.
“Let’s say hypothetically he got gay married,” McConnell said.
“Yeah, to the leader of ISIS,” Graham clarified.
“And they had matching diapers fashioned out of the original constitution,” Collins chimed in.
“Oh heck, who are we kidding?” McConnell said. “We’ll always be ride or die.”
Some people are old enough to remember when SNL actually used to be funny but they’re now approaching middle age.
