On Episode 58 of War Room: Impeachment, Adam Brandon of FreedomWorks joined Raheem Kassam and Jason Miller to discuss the Democrats’ Judiciary hearing with the professors of the swamp missing the target with Americans.
“There’s a lot of things happening in middle America right now,” Brandon explains. “I was looking at some of the data: since 2000, four hundred thousand Americans have died of opioid overdoses. Think of that, that’s like a side of the Civil War. And we’re spending time on [impeachment]?”
“A lot of these Democrats, we call them the dirty thirty, these are the Democrats that are sitting in districts that Trump won. One of the things that they came to Washington to do was, they said, ‘we’re going to be bipartisan, we’re going to work on issues.’ The only thing they’ve got to show is impeachment. What a disaster for them.”
Later in the episode, the three further discussed how Democrats are alienating America. This time in reference to a 2006 clip of one of Wednesday’s Democrat witnesses, Professor Karlan, wherein she went on a racist tirade.
“The rich, pampered, prodigal stuff, doesn’t that remind you of something?” Kassam inquired. “Doesn’t that remind you of homophobic, xenophobic – remember that Hillary Clinton basket of deplorables speech? This is a basket of deplorables speech that was given again by one of these [Constitutional law professors], and she gave Hillary Clinton money”.

“‘Deplorable’ is probably the nicest thing professor Karlan has said about Trump voters and working class folks across the country,” Miller said.
Brandon added: “and Democrats wonder why they lost Youngstown, Ohio.”
At the episode’s conclusion, Brandon mentioned how academia is part of the swamp that Trump was elected to take down. The professors of the swamp, like the ones the Democrats used as witnesses in the first Judiciary hearing, are exactly the institution the Americans people are pushing back against.
“The thing that the President said when he was campaigning that got everyone real comfortable with him, was when he started going after the swamp. This is the swamp: these college professors, they are in the swamp. They want to be close to their buddies on the Judiciary Committee.”
“And another phrase that gets used a lot is the deep state. Well a lot of our base is very, very concerned about that. If you have a Constitutional order, you have a Constitutional order. People who work in the administration, they’re supposed to be cogs in the wheel. They’re not supposed to be the people making the decisions.”
