The WH and the GOP, as is usual, sent out their army of shameless robots to the Sunday talk shows, hoping to do damage control and to fling some poo, hoping some of it will stick to the TV screens.
Needless to say, it did not go well. Let’s take a look, shall we.
The WH sent creepy Miller to the Fox Sunday news show (they have no one left), who promptly got spanked by Chris Wallace.
WATCH: Stephen Miller refuses to answer why Trump used private lawyers as his emissaries to the Ukrainian government?

So, is he going to run crying to daddy trump and dictate some nasty tweets attacking Fox?
Light-weight Jim Jordon got leveled on CNN with Jake Tapper –
After Rep. Jim Jordan launches a barrage of accusations about the Bidens, @JakeTapper fact-checks, and adds, "I would think somebody who's been accused of things in the last year or two would be more sensitive about throwing out wild allegations against people." pic.twitter.com/BKIg5VGSaT

Well done Jake!
.@jaketapper's entire segment w/ @Jim_Jordan should be mandatory viewing for every journalism class in America. A member of Congress, confronted w/ FACTS, resorts to peddling lies/conspiracy theories bc he's drowning in blind allegiance to a POTUS who betrayed the Constitution

Watch that language Alden. Or not. 😄
Sweet fucking Lucifer. Jake Tapper hit Jim Jordan so hard his goddamn voice changed, emitting a higher pitch than Mike Pence after he put leeches on his cock in an effort to suck the sin away. Can't deflect when someone reminds ya that you stand accused of huffing teen ball sweat

It’s not going well when Giuliani gets yelled at — even on Fox.
You know it's bad when a Fox News host joins everybody else in yelling "you know better" to Trump's henchmen. pic.twitter.com/wjBmfzIrZu

Guiliani continued with his gaslighting tour …
NEW: Asked repeatedly if he would cooperate with House Intelligence Committee, Rudy Giuliani tells @ThisWeekABC, "I wouldn't cooperate with Adam Schiff," but then says he would "consider" it were chair Adam Schiff removed. https://t.co/S0bTTE1vKj pic.twitter.com/gszI6zeRUV

… laying out his demands for testifying. LoL. Republicans do live in a parallel universe.
The Shadow Briefing has obtained Rudy Guiliani's list of demands for testifying before House intel.1)Remove Adam Schiff 2)$10million in unmarked bills. 3)100 dozen Cuban cigars 4)all divorce legal bills paid 5)Peanut M&M's-no brown ones 5)several passports from state w/ new names

Guiliani was on every show, it seems. Trying to revise his stories and pick-and-choose who to throw under the bus to save his behind.

Quivering Lindsey was stomping all over the map and the law.

And Chuck Todd played his usual dim-witted self.
Hugh Hewitt says the Mueller Report completely exonerated Trump, no collusion no obstruction. No pushback from Chuck Todd or other panelists. Oy. Meet the Press needs an overhaul

OTOH, Adam Schiff was a picture of dignity and integrity, armed with a stiletto called the law.
NEW: Adam Schiff has reached agreement with whistleblower to come before House Intelligence Committee, he tells @ThisWeekABC, and says he expects to hear from the whistleblower "very soon." https://t.co/uMWxTeYU29 pic.twitter.com/VXtiTiUTm2

And more dirt comes out … against republicans.

Robert De Niro appeared on CNN for an affable interview. But the right-wing is going apoplectic with De Niro’s use of the f-word. Snowflakes. F ‘em.
—@BrianStelter asks Robert De Niro about criticism he gets from Fox for speaking out against Trump.
"Fuck em," De Niro replies. "Fuck em."
Stelter reminds him, "This is cable, so it's not an FCC violation, but it is still a Sunday morning." pic.twitter.com/9IOo1VvXCM

Let karma takes it’s inevitable path …
There is a kind of karmic hilarity to the fact that in order to protect Trump, his staff centralized the materials that could doom him in a highly classified system that can't be erased or manipulated without a record of access by a very small number of people.

This is what happens when the truth is not on your side, when you are trying to defend the indefensible, when your lies are so blatant, that even Fox cannot stomach ‘em.
But let’s not be under any illusion; the GOP, the WH and right-wing noise machine are on a war footing — against Democrats, against the American People and against the world. Their propaganda blitzkrieg is just starting. trump will double his executive tweeting time. They will burn everything to the ground before admitting to any crimes. We must stay alert, united and we must keep fighting and not let any lie go unchallenged.
