MSNBC’s Chris Hayes tonight talked during his live show about impeachment as coming right down to President Donald Trump getting “caught cheating” ahead of the election.
“He’s cheating on the basic fundamental thing we use to select our representative government, right? The thing that we pride ourself on, fair and free elections,” he said, before bringing up Russian interference and the now-infamous Michael Cohen payoffs.
As for the latter, Hayes recalled how much Trump’s campaign was hurt after the Access Hollywood tape came out and how Republicans were disavowing Trump in that moment. “And now imagine after that moment… that everyone learns he had paid off an adult performer to cover up an affair? That really would have made an impact,” he said. “But we didn’t find out because Donald Trump and Michael Cohen conspired to cheat, to violate campaign finance law to make sure that didn’t happen.”
But in the lead-up to the 2020 election, Hayes said Trump supporters “don’t care” about him cheating because “in their eyes the president is cheating in furtherance of the will of the American people, that the ends justify the means.”
Hayes — after noting Trump didn’t win the popular vote and that Democrats won in 2018 — said, “When they talk about the will of the American people, they are talking about a minority of those people. They just are. That’s their base. But those are the people they view as real Americans. Those are the people worthy of representation. They are the rightful owners of this country’s destiny.”
