Trump Complains His Lawyers Will Make Impeachment Arguments on Saturday: ‘Death Valley in TV’

President Donald Trump has complained that his lawyers will have to present their arguments on a Saturday when not many people may be watching. Trump’s legal will begin their arguments in the Senate impeachment trial this week based on a schedule set by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

“After having been treated unbelievably unfairly in the House, and then having to endure hour after hour of lies, fraud & deception by Shifty Schiff, Cryin’ Chuck Schumer & their crew, looks like my lawyers will be forced to start on Saturday, which is called Death Valley in T.V.,” Trump said on Twitter.

Trump’s evident disappointment that his lawyers might not get high ratings is in stark contrast to McConnell’s plan to limit viewership. Democrats were outraged by McConnell’s schedule, which could involve key events happening late at night.

Apparently, the President feels the same way. There has long been a difference in attitudes between Trump and McConnell about how best to run his trial. While the Kentucky Republican wants to limit its’ impact as much as possible, Trump reportedly wants to have his say in prime time. This conflict isn’t not easily resolved.
