Stephen Colbert Knows Why Trump Keeps Admitting His Crimes in Public

“You know, the Constitution gives the accused the right to remain silent,” Stephen Colbert said in his   Late Show   monologue on Thursday. “And clearly, Donald Trump has never read the Constitution. Because he will not shut the old hamburger hole.” 

Last week, Colbert— and his fellow late-night hosts —expressed disbelief that the Trump administration would release   such a self-incriminating summary   of the president’s phone call with Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky. Now, he can’t believe that Trump is just admitting to his alleged crimes out loud.

“Everything he has said for the last 48 hours just makes him guiltier,” the host added, before playing the clip of Trump   calling on not just Ukraine, but also China   to start investigating Joe Biden and his son Hunter. 

“What are you doing?!” Colbert asked. “That is literally what they’re impeaching you for. Don’t say that out loud. That’s like if Jeffrey Dahmer showed up in court wearing an apron that said ‘Kiss the Cook.’” 

Colbert then attempted to make sense of “what’s happening here.” 

“Trump knows if something’s bad, you don’t admit it in public,” he said. “So, if he admits it in public it must not be bad. He’s trying to normalize it.” 

The host compared what Trump is doing to a husband saying, “Honey, I know you think it’s wrong for me to have sex with our neighbor, but if it were, why would I be doing it in the middle of your book club?”

"Stephen Colbert Knows Why Trump Keeps Admitting His Crimes in Public"

Colbert doesn't have a clue !

For one....Nothing has been put up for a vote on "Impeachment" ! If a real crime so heinous as the Democrats say it is occured....the "Vote to Impeach" would have already been accomplished.

Second.....Trump puts out what he does, so Democrats spend all their time looking into "Fantasy" wrong doings.

Do Democrats know what the latest thing Trump just signed under "Executive order" as they fumble on their Fucking Impeachment "Inquiry" ?

Then perhaps you should explain why he keeps doing the same thing that instigated the impeachment inquiry. 

Or are you going to claim that it is proper for him to solicit, cajole, or pressure foreign governments to interfere in our elections?

You understand there is a certain procedure to this....don't you? 

Or are you trying to claim that the fact that they didn't bypass the inquiry and straight to a vote is a legitimate is a valid talking point?

When someone is arrested and goes on trial, do you also think that they must be innocent if the judge doesn't immediately proclaim them guilty without the actual trial?  I don't know where you're from, but that's not how it works in America.

Trump has placed Democrats in the position of having to explain why they are trying to impeach Trump.  House Democrats are operating under the misapprehension that they are credible; Democrats don't seem to believe they need to explain themselves to the public.  

Trump is being direct.  Trump has told the public what he has done.  Democrats are sniping from the sidelines and are only telling the public they are threatening Trump with closed session investigations.  Democrats are hiding their actions from the public and are not explaining themselves to the public.

That latest "Closed Door Session" must not have gone well. Normally, (if that's a thing anymore) the Democrats would have clamored for the media attention, if things went well for them in that "Closed Door session" with Volker !

Yeah, let me know when know  when they around to finally releasing the part where he explains that the "bombshell" texts the Democrats leaked yesterday reflect a guy commenting on a news story, not someone having personal information about the subject. There's a reason Republicans want the full transcript released and Schiiff just leaks out of context information his stooges in the media will use to drive a false narrative.

Seeing as how 'the Putin sympathizers' constantly go off topic on this excellent observation by the esteemed Tessylo, I deem it proper for me to do so also.

And here it is!  Want to clear all of this crap up?  Clinton testified for 11 hours on one occasion during the Benghazi Hearings.

So------- have Pompeo testify for 5 1/2 hours on this issue, what he knows about it, his dealings with it and why he believes his actions were proper and in the best interest of the nation.  This being generous seeing as how he would be 'under oath' for only half the time.  Ya think?
