Rubio Blasts Media for Sensationalizing Impeachment

Florida Senator Marco Rubio (R) took to Twitter to call out the mainstream media, which he says is focused on sensationalizing the impeachment effort against President Trump instead of reporting on the progress being made.

This aligns with President Trump’s consistent bashing of the mainstream media, calling them “fake news” that is more focused on furthering a liberal agenda rather than reporting news in an objective manner.

The sunshine state lawmaker noted that the mainstream media has been “obsessed” with the President’s impeachment and has “ignored GOP Senate confirming 13 more judges this week alone.”

He questioned that “impeachment is better for ratings, but what is going to matter more & longer?”

Will it be “a partisan impeachment?” or will it be “187 judges including ¼ of appellate courts?”

Although the House voted to impeach the president, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D) announced that she would be withholding the impeachment articles and would not be directing them to the Senate.

As expected, Senate Republicans have responded by criticizing Speaker Pelosi.

Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson (R) called the move “bizarre,” explaining that “it’s kind of bizarre they had to rush to this impeachment vote, and then all of a sudden she’s sitting on it.”

He added that he doesn’t “think the Senate should be making the case the House should have made in their presentation.”

His take is that “they weren’t able to make the case.”
