Republicans Demand Biden Tell Them Why They Are Impeaching Him

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—In an irate letter to the White House, Kevin McCarthy and other congressional Republicans have demanded that President Biden reveal why they are impeaching him.

The letter claims that, after Republicans announced their impeachment inquiry, “the White House has stubbornly refused to provide us with any reasons for our doing so.”

The Republicans go on to demand that Biden reveal the rationale for his ouster “immediately, or face the consequences.”

“The American people are waiting, Mr. President, for you to explain to us why we are impeaching you,” the letter concludes. “Your silence will not be forgiven.”

“You know what’s interesting to me, you’re a reporter for CNN, right? I just laid out to you a lot of allegations based upon the American public,” McCarthy said during the exchange.

Trump just said in an interview that Biden is being impeached because Trump was impeached. He said that Biden would not have been impeached if he himself hadn't been impeached.

stopping daily COVID deaths, making more stuff in America like computer chips, and much more.

"Nobody wants to work anymore" always beats "they're stealing our jobs".
