Trump Has Got To Be The Luckiest Person Alive......

The helicopter crash in Midtown Manhattan has taken the John Dean testimony off the cable news shows.

Coincidence? They say there are no coincidences. Trump is just lucky - I guess!!!!

You can tune into CSPAN 1 and see and hear it - but the main impact of this was to educate the American People on the Mueller Report and I question if many American's that are not into this whole Trump thing would even tune into CSPAN.

I hope that the cable news shows - later in the day - air this testimony in its entirety.

1. CSPAN has the hearings live for all to watch or record.

3. But all are not going to watch

OR record c-span. They're just going to watch whatever local or cable station they have on, and see the helicopter crash, instead of the hearing.

4. We Here At DU Will Tune Into CSPAN - But.....

will the average American that didn't read the Mueller Report tune into CSPAN? The intent of this testimony was to get to that average American. With this testimony being pre-empted by the helicopter crash - I wonder how many average American's will seek out CSPAN?

8. Why do you imagine "the average American that didn't read the Mueller Report" is watching?

13. Will the "average American" tune into MSNBC or CNN?

Those networks don't draw huge audiences. If someone really wants to watch the hearing, there are ways to do so. Even if it was being covered on the cable news channels, those who don't care about the hearing aren't going to watch it..they'll change the channel or simply tune it out.

2. The Dean testimony wasn't consequential...

First, most people don't watch daytime political cable news shows.

Second, the people who WERE going to watch probably already had an opinion on Trump and the Mueller report.

Third, Dean doesn't have anything concrete to add to the issue.

5. Well stated

Although Mr. Dean is an important historical figure, he's got nothing to do with Trump and the Russian interference. All Mr. Dean can offer is historical and legal perspective.

Your first point is the most important one, however.

16. This whole Dean thing is a mistake

 

Most Democratic voters will look at this as totally irrelevant to our situation today, and will simply make his base shake thier empty heads at it.

6. They are only making opening statements now.

The testimony has not yet begun.

Condolences to the family of the person who died.

11. That Nixon also dangled pardons and knew

it was wrong (illegal) just as Trump has dangled pardons to Flynn, Manafort, Stone, Cohen.

17. Or have ever taken a history class.

Or were alive during Clinton's impeachment, because it was a common discussion point then, as well.

19. May as well wake up and smell the coffee, when Barr

wrote his report on the Mueller Report it was dead as far as the vast majority of America knows.

20. Nope

"Overall, three-quarters said the full Mueller report should be made public. That included a majority of Republicans (54 percent). Just 18 percent overall said Barr's summary is enough."

21. Only a small percentage watch cable news

My guess is that much of the nation is and will remain oblivious to the fact that Dean testified today. And that would have happened even if there was no helicopter crash in Manhattan.
