Ken Starr Defended Trump by Complaining About Frivolous Impeachments, So Someone Added a Laugh Track and It's Perfect

Ken Starr Defended Trump by Complaining About Frivolous Impeachments, So Someone Added a Laugh Track and It's Perfect
C-SPAN

Ken Starr, a conservative pundit and frequent Fox News guest, is best known for his dogged attacks to find impeachable offenses by President Bill Clinton during a multi-year investigation into every aspect of the Clinton family's lives.

In the end, Starr found an extramarital affair which was used to impeach Clinton and that Clinton lied under oath about his personal life.


But since the House of Representatives began the process of President Donald Trump's impeachment, Starr is singing a different tune. Brought on as the White House defense lawyer, Starr still sees no issue with his own attacks on Clinton, yet claims that Trump's actions don't merit impeachment or any rebuke whatsoever, for that matter.

Starr said of the President's actions:

"Significantly, in this particular juncture of America's history, the Senate is being called to sit as the high court of impeachment all too frequently. Indeed, we are living in what I think can aptly be described as the Age of Impeachment."

The last presidential impeachment that faced a Senate trial was the one Starr himself instigated.

The irony is lost on no one familiar with Starr.

The former independent counsel's remarks before the Senate on Monday, decrying Trump's impeachment were soundly mocked by many. Others found them laughable to the point that someone altered the soundtrack of his testimony slightly.

Vox journalist Aaron Rupar shared the altered video on Twitter with the caption:

"Ken Starr unironically lamenting that impeachments are happening 'all too frequently' is so much better with a laugh track."


MSNBC contributor Ari Melber said of the performance sans laugh track:

"Constitutionally, we just watched Ken Starr punch himself in the face."


Melber, like many, referenced Starr's own book where he defended his role in impeaching President Clinton.



Hypocrisy was the word many used to describe Starr's double speak.






Others examined Starr's claim of the "age of impeachment" and argument that impeachments occurred too often.



The Senate trial of President Donald Trump continues. So far his defense has not converted the public as hoped.
