(Tea Party PAC) – Oh, this just didn’t go as planned, did it?
On Friday, the GOP-controlled Senate successfully voted down a measure 51-49 (despite two RINO defectors) which would have given the Senate power to subpoena additional witnesses in the ongoing impeachment trial of Donald J. Trump.
Leftists are now absolutely beside themselves, having erroneously hoped they would somehow be successful at kicking Trump out of office.
Here are some scenes of the tear-stained protests, which call to mind the national melt-down that occurred after Trump’s victory in 2016.

You can hear the words “shame shame” echoing off the Senate building just after the vote as Senators speed away in cars with blacked out windows….#ImpeachmentTrialSham #GOPCowards #SenateGOPCoverup pic.twitter.com/nZuMwlhEIi

The scene in DC as protesters find out that Mitch McConnell won again and the Senate voted against hearing witnesses could not be any better 😂😂😂 pic.twitter.com/j5Q11U4lOf

Conservatives responded in kind:
Serious 2016 election vibes here. Absolutely amazing.

They really don't get how ridiculous they look, do they? This is going to be a long temper tantrum. 🙄

I am crying with laughter. Nothing more enjoyable than watching a liberal tantrum! They don’t realise how many vote for Trump purely to wind them up. If they could just shut up whining it would work so much better for them.

The 2020 harvest in November will bring a much sweeter vintage of leftist tears and when our President wins reelection by both the electoral college & popular vote, the image of leftists reacting to Blue States having to give up all their electoral votes will be glorious!

Of course, we could surely count on the left-wing media to join in the freakouts, as they also seem to have been under the impression they could fake news their way to a successful political coup, despite their 100% failure rate of doing so.
“You should be mad as hell, and you need to show these people you will not take it anymore!” CNN’s Chris Cuomo mourned.

“It is striking that there is a national security adviser for President Trump, who is out there basically waving his hands saying, ‘I would like to be subpoenaed’ … Even in that context, the Senate voted the way they did,” CNN’s Jake Tapper whined.
(He’s wrong, by the way. Bolton hasn’t stayed that he wants to testify, he’s simply indicated he may be willing to.)

“Donald Trump may well have now become the most powerful president in American history. … President Trump is functionally a monarch at this point,” NBC’s Jon Meacham outrageously pontificated.
“If the king does it, it’s okay. That’s what we’re seeing unfold in Washington right now. And I think all Americans, whether you support the President or you don’t should pause significantly and think about the long term implications of having a president who is above the law.”
Over on CNN, one-time legendary journalist and current anti-Trump zealot Carl Bernstein declared that Trump is a dictator, despite the fact that the unfavorable outcome of yesterday’s vote couldn’t be a more perfect example of the republican process.
“[W]hat we have here now is the Senate of the United States through the Republican leadership and membership has now joined hands with a tyrant,” he reportedly said.
