Noah, Meyers, Colbert, and Kimmel mock Trump's lawyers for his second impeachment trial

Yesterday, I observed that the former President's lawyers "provided a lot of unintentional comedy by either bumbling their way through their arguments (Bruce Castor) or making stupid and insulting arguments (David Schoen)." That became the theme of most of the "comedic observations of the trial" last night. I open the reactions with Trevor Noah's comedic criticism in Impeachment Trial Continues: Trump & GOP Slam Trump's Lawyers.

Trump’s second impeachment trial ramps up with the GOP bashing Trump’s lawyers, and Trump reportedly yelling at the television as he watched.
"No one was more upset by Trump's $#!++y lawyers than the man who was never going to pay them anyway, Donald J. Trump." Well, you get what you pay for.

Seth Meyers also focused on Trump's representation in Trump's Impeachment Lawyers Are Very Bad: A Closer Look.

Seth takes a closer look at Senate Republicans sticking with former President Donald Trump in his second impeachment trial despite the House impeachment managers' powerful evidence and the fact that Trump's lawyers are very bad.

For years, I've been saying on Facebook that Trump doesn't want to listen to his lawyers. He wants lawyers who listen to him. He should be careful what he wishes for. I think he's getting them, and they're not that good.

Follow over the jump for more dunking on Castor and Schoen, whose name means beautiful, friendly, or nice. The team of Beaver and Beautiful represents Trump?

The first part of Stephen Colbert's monologue, New Video Of Capitol Riot Reveals Shocking Violence And Emotional Pleas For Help, concentrated on the House impeachment managers and their evidence instead of Trump's lawyer.

The videos presented by House managers on day two of the impeachment trial came with trigger warnings for those watching at home, due to the extreme violence on display inside the deadly attack on the U.S. Capitol.
LOL, I forgot about Mitt Romney's pseudonym "Pierre Delecto." Officer Eugene Goodman did a good deed by saving both.

The second half of his monologue, Even The Cat Lawyer Would Be A Better Impeachment Advocate Than Bruce Castor, returned to the theme of this post.

Republicans were harshly critical of the disorganized opening arguments by the former president's impeachment lawyers, making it clear that he could use better representation.
Running Castor through the cat filter made him funnier and more tolerable, but didn't make him a better lawyer. I wonder if there is a beaver filter on Zoom, because Castor is the scientific name for beaver. It's worth a try.*

Jimmy Kimmel mocked Castor and Schoen after opening with the evidence presented by the House impeachment managers in Never-Before-Seen Capitol Riot Videos Provide Damning Evidence Against Trump.

Today was day two of Trump’s second impeachment trial and House managers shared gripping new video of Trump’s army of dangerous imbeciles storming the Capitol, FOX News cut away from the trial, it was a successful day for Trump’s lawyers in that they didn’t speak, Donald Trump Jr. thinks that we should leave daddy alone, mean tweets were read at a hearing for Biden’s pick to run the Office of Management and Budget, Justin Bieber has a new Rolls Royce, Tom Brady got completely GRONKED at the Buccaneers celebration parade, the perfect gift for your spouse this Valentine’s Day, and we play “How Many Times a Month Do You Have Sex” with couples on Hollywood Blvd.
Kimmel found plenty of subjects for his comedy last night, including Bernie Sanders and Neera Tanden. I think Bernie will forgive Tanden for her mean tweets and vote to approve her, but we'll see if any Republicans do.

Tomorrow will be a busy day on this blog if I make enough time for it. Not only will there be more impeachment news, but tomorrow is Lunar New Year and Darwin Day. Stay tuned to see if I write entries for all three.
