11th Doctor: Hello, hello, Gallifrey High Command, this is the Doctor speaking.
10th Doctor: Hello! Also the Doctor. Can you hear me?
The War Doctor: Also the Doctor, standing ready.
The General: Dear God, three of them. All my worst nightmares at once.
Here is my prediction for today.
There are going to be three different James Comey testimonies.
First of all there is going to be the actual testimony, the testimony that is going to take place that will be in the congressional record and shown by CSPAN etc in full. That will involve taking questions with Democrats trying to spin things one way and republicans the other. The testimony for which his opening statement is actually out. In that testimony. In that testimony there will be a few things the administration doesn’t like but the reality is there will be nothing even remotely criminal, let alone impeachable that comes out of his lips.
If you are an average american who doesn’t follow sites, or a person who hasn’t gone all in on the Trump = Hitler/Caesar/Nixon nonsense, that is what you will hear. There may in fact be a tiny percentage of the “never trump” team who are grounded in reality that will see and acknowledge it.
This is reality.
Second there is going to be the James Comey testimony that the media reports to people who didn’t watch it. That will consist of the sound bites most damaging to the administration, it will be presented with video the most dramatic and accusatory questions by Democrats and spun by pundits on panels 80-100% against the president as a powerful message by a brave former public servant who this same media villainized literally until the day he was fired. In this coverage on the news side you will see it spun in conjunction with the various investigations as one more black mark against this administration, while on the pundit side, you will hear plenty of people comes as close to the line as possible to imply that proves illegality by the Trump administration but the vast majority will make it a point not to cross that line, particularly in print media like newspapers.
This is spin, the taking of actual events and twisting them to the political advantage of the left. Or as it’s called these days #fakenews
If you are someone who regularly buys what the MSM sell then this is what you will see. It’s worth noting that there will, in my opinion quite a few in the media, particularly older members of it, who will pretend in public, that this is what they saw, but will in private admit they saw the first. If you are an anti-trumper who hasn’t gone full fanatic yet, this is what you will likely see.
Finally there will be the James Comey testimony on Never Trump social media and such shows as Samantha Bee’s. This will consist of sound bites or individual lines that they will maintain PROVES Trump has committed impeachable offenses. Much of it will be similar to what the MSM presents be the testimony but it will willing to cross that line from reality to fantasy. It will be the testimony seen through that “alternative movie” that Scott Adams often talks about and spun by those who make their living off of keeping the most fanatical anti-Trump members of the left on perpetual outrage.
If you are a full blown far left fanboy/girl/te/le/zi/ki/ type who teaches gender/race/transgender/ studies this is what you will see.
No amount of reality will move you from this spot. If anyone brings up the actual testimony or the actual law, they will be ignored at best and attacked at worst and even the people who go for the media spin will be considered “Trump Deniers” for not crossing the line by them, ironically those same people in that center section will use this group to show they are the “reasonable” ones.
Spoilers note, only the first one is actually real
