Now I know I swore I was never going to be talking about Judge Nappi again, but I just couldn’t help myself. I mean the metamorphosis that this guy has gone through is far more startling than even the one experienced by Dr. David Banner when turning into ‘The Hulk.’ I mean there was a time when Judge Nappi, at least appeared to be, a pretty enthusiastic supporter of President Trump. But somewhere along the line, whether it resulted from being denied a seat on the high court, a capitulation made by him in order to get back on television, or because of a change in the network’s upper management, Nappi most definitely has come completely off the rails.
And that was again made painfully obvious during Monday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “Your World,” hosted by another of the network’s star NeverTrumpers, Neil Cavuto. It was during their silly little exchange that ‘judicial analyst’ Judge Nappi again took the opportunity to criticize President Trump, focusing this time on his decision not to send lawyers to the House Judiciary Committee impeachment hearing. Host Cavuto asked Nappi, “I am curious what you make of the fact that the president might want to skip out on this Judiciary Committee opening hearing and maybe others to follow because it is essentially a Kangaroo court or it’s not fair.”
To which Judge Nappi responded by saying, “The rules about which the president are complaining were written by a Republican House of Representatives in 2015. The president would be very unwise not to send lawyers there.” He continued, “The Democrats are not doing anything that the Democrats did not do to Nixon, or the Republicans didn’t do the Bill Clinton. But I think he makes a mistake when he refuses to participate. It is a valid vote by the House of Representatives that authorized this.” He added, “He also loses the argument that it’s unfair if he doesn’t take the opportunity to participate himself.” Judge Nappi knows little about what he speaks.
Personally, if I was the president I would listen to whatever advice it was that Nappi had to offer and would then proceed with doing the complete opposite. Because by doing that you could never go wrong. And I have to say that referring to Nappi as a ‘judicial analyst’ is much the same as referring to Colin Kaepernick as a star quarterback because they both possess an equal amount of talent in their supposed chosen profession, zero. Nappi knows that the only chance he has of remaining the least bit relevant, in any meaningful way, is to continue to openly criticize the president every chance he gets, and the more outrageous his criticism, the better.
And I really don’t blame President Trump for not wanting to be a part of this circus. There’s simply no upside to doing so. They are going to impeach him regardless of what any witness might say. Let it go to the Senate where the Republicans will run a hearing, actually fair to the president, calling their own witnesses as well as some who have already testified and giving the Democrats time for questioning. In other words, run the hearing the way ‘Pencil Neck’ should have. People will see that and it will make a lasting impression. Democrats, with the help of those like Nappi, have dug themselves a rather sizable hole that they won’t soon be able to crawl out of.
It’s now clear that Judge Nappi has become a very loyal member of what has become the disloyal opposition, aka the resistance, that has now wasted three years trying to delegitimize our duly elected President while demanding that he legitimize their circus like court proceedings. Right now, the disloyal opposition doesn’t seem to be all that sure whether they will even vote on impeachment. So far, the entire thing has been pretty much of a total bust. Few people are watching and would seem that despite the Democrats’ best efforts to convince people that they are doing this out of their concern for the Constitution, most Americans remain unconvinced.
So Democrats continue full-speed ahead down the road they have chosen, either blissfully unaware, or totally uncaring, that it’s just around the next turn that the bridge is out. And despite the many warnings from the other side, the Democrats have made a conscious decision to continue down their present path. I can’t help but wonder, when all is finally said and done, whether a majority of Democrats, as well as those like Nappi, who played a part in their little circus, will have second thoughts regarding what they tried to do in their attempt to impeach the president. Or if they will still feel that they were somehow justified in doing so. I guess we wait and see.
