Laura Ingraham addressed the Democratic agenda on “The Ingraham Angle” Monday night saying the party didn’t want Americans to be happy.
“So, the better you do and the happier you are, the more money you have in your pocket to spend, the more freedom you have to just live the life you want to live, the unhappier they seem to get,” Ingraham said.
Ingraham chastised Democrats for making impeachment their top priority despite polls showing that the majority of Americans are against it.
“At last count a hundred thirty seven Democrats want to begin impeachment proceedings against the president,” Ingraham said. “And by the way that’s despite poll after poll showing the majority of Americans including many Democrats do not want to see Trump impeached.”
The host said voters understand the repercussions impeachment will bring to the country, while Democrats in Congress have never “accepted” the Trump presidency.
“Voters correctly understand that impeaching Trump will be a bitter divisive fight that’s only going to further damage and divide the country,” Ingraham said. “But the Democrats who never accepted Trump’s elections election as legitimate the first place, they just don’t care.”
Ingraham said that Democrats want to “drive the car,” and control the decisions Americans make before urging her viewers to no “let them.”
House Democrats eager to impeach President Trump are struggling to galvanize public opinion, a major challenge that has delighted the White House and flummoxed Capitol Hill investigators who say they’re running short on time.
The House Judiciary Committee brought in former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski on Tuesday for the first in a series of fall hearings aimed at convincing voters of the need to impeach the president. But while the acrimonious testimony drew headlines and attention, even some impeachment proponents said it wouldn’t sway the public.
“If you’re looking to draw out information and begin shaping a narrative for the American people, that wasn’t the witness to do it,” said Rep. Jared Huffman (D-Calif.), a longtime impeachment backer.
The skepticism underscores a problem Democrats face as they weigh whether to draft articles of impeachment this fall: Voters overwhelmingly oppose a move to oust the president — and some polls even show sentiment moving in the opposite direction.
