(OPINION) ETH – On a recent broadcast of “Real Time with Bill Maher,” Katie Couric was the special guest and didn’t hold anything back attacking Republican members of Congress and President Donald Trump. and even asked:
“How are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump?” According to TheBlaze, Couric appeared to assail Republicans such as Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert, who vowed to carry her gun into work in Washington, D.C. THis was in relation to metal detectors that were installed in the building following the Capitol attack.
The report stated that Several Republican Congress members, including Boebert, objected to the metal detectors and searches. “It is so shocking. … Not only are they not conceding, Bill, but their thoughts – that there might have been some collusion among members of Congress, some are refusing to go through magnetometers …
to check for weapons, they’re not wearing masks during this siege,” Couric told Bill Maher. Couric continued with: “I mean, it’s really bizarre, isn’t it, when you think about how AWOL so many of these members of Congress have gotten.
But I also think some of them are believing the garbage that they are being fed 24/7 on the internet, by their constituents, and they bought into this big lie.” Couric declared, “And the question is how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump.”
Couric then called for the impeachment of Trump. “But Bill, if you commit a crime and then you move, does that means we’re not going to charge you with a crime because you’re moving out of the neighborhood? I mean, it’s ludicrous,” Couric argued. “I think there have to be guardrails on presidential power. He incited violence. … He was really, really inciting violence.”
