Wow! Are you watching the impeachment hearing like I have been? Riveted? One of my favorite players is Gordon Sondland, our country’s ambassador to the European Union. Sondland is the owner of a chain of hotels in the PNW and a lifelong Republican who donated a cool one million dollars to President Baby B. Hands’ inauguration. Gordy is my guy because he lives in Portland, where I live, and I am just two-degrees of separation from him. Plus, he’s hot. Right? He’s like a dopey Mr. Clean.
On Wednesday Sondland described POTUS’s actions as a quid pro quo involving military aid to Ukraine. Samantha Bee joked on her show Full Frontal, that Sondland “implicated basically anyone who’s ever set foot in the Trump White House”.
Bee also joked:
“You know what these hearings could use? A guy who paid a million dollars for his ambassadorship.”
“Not only did Sondland leave Trump’s defense in tatters, he also implicated Mick Mulvaney, Mike Pompeo and Mike Pence, and he did it as happily as if he were enjoying his own ‘Eyes Wide Shut’ birthday party.”
The Late-Night hosts joined in:
“I’ll tell you something: I don’t think Gordon Sondland’s getting his million dollars back.”
“So many guys went under the bus today, there wasn’t even room for all of them under there. They had to go under in shifts.”
“I mean, it was incredible. If he were a ‘Real Housewife’, he would have finished by throwing a glass of rose in someone’s face, and just walking off.”
“Even the White House janitor was like, ‘Am I gonna go to jail?'”
