Conservative-leaning tabloid The New York Post kicked off coverage of the public impeachment hearings of President Donald Trump with a cover depicting the proceedings as a circus, and accusing Democrats of finding Trump “GUILTY!” in advance.
The Rupert Murdoch-owned paper is famous for its over-the-top front covers, but Wednesday’s effort veered into obvious territory by depicting House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff as a circus ringleader firing a gag “IMPEACH!” pistol, and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi as a rainbow-wigged clown holding an oversize gave.
In a nostalgic touch, the whistleblower who reported Trump’s call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is depicted as The Unknown Comic, a 70s-era novelty act.
The cover is pegged to a Michael Goodwin op-ed in which Schiff is likened to a “conjurer,” and which throws the entire kitchen sink of anti-impeachment arguments against the wall, including that even if Trump did it, he shouldn’t be impeached.
“The one sure thing is that deplorables and bitter clingers understand that the death penalty is not a fair sentence for jaywalking,” Goodwin writes.
