All The President's Men Are Whiny Little Boys

Secretary of State and 56-year-old adult man Mike Pompeo threw a full-fledged tantrum Friday when NPR's Mary Louise Kelly dared ask him tough questions about his role in the Ukraine scandal that led to President Trump's impeachment. Pompeo was emotionally reactive throughout the interview, and afterward, according to Kelly, the Secretary of State led her into another room, where he screamed and swore at her for several minutes, demanded she point out where Ukraine is on an unmarked map (she did) and then threatened that people would "find out about this." Even the most sycophantic Trumpian bootlicker would have a hard time defending this behavior, and yet, the reaction from other reporters who have interacted with Pompeo was: Yes, this all tracks for a very powerful Republican man. This is how he acts.  

In conservative circles, there's a consensus lamentation about the death of the "American man." In their imaginations, men in America used to be like John Wayne characters: tall, stoic cowboy-providers who kept a stiff upper lip as they fended off the emotional chaos of women and flamboyant, gun-twirling bad guys. Real men never cry. Real men don't lose their shit and scream at people.

Mike Pompeo Blows Up at NPR Reporter: ‘Do You Think Americans Care About Ukraine?'
RAUL ARBOLEDASecretary of State Mike Pompeo reportedly cursed and shouted at an NPR reporter after she repeatedly confronted him about his handling of the politically charged ouster of former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch.

According to a transcript of the interview between NPR host Mary Louise Kelly and Pompeo, he repeatedly dodged questions on Ukraine and grew increasingly irate after Kelly asked, "Do you owe Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch an apology?"

"You know, I agreed to come on your show today to talk about Iran," Pompeo said before going on to insist, "I  just don't have anything else to say about that this morning."

Law Professor: Trump Could Also Have Been Impeached for War Crimes, Assassinations & Corruption
Democratic lawmakers are continuing to lay out their case for removing the president from office in the final day of opening arguments by Democrats in the historic impeachment trial of President Trump. Republicans will begin their opening arguments on Saturday. The Senate trial comes a month after the House impeached Trump for withholding congressionally approved military aid to Ukraine as part of an effort to pressure the Ukrainian president to investigate Trump's political rival, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. On Thursday, House impeachment manager Jerrold Nadler made the case that a president can be impeached for noncriminal activity. During another part of Thursday's proceedings, House impeachment manager Congressmember Sylvia Garcia relied on polls by Fox News to make the case that President Trump decided to target Joe Biden after polls showed the former vice president could beat Trump in 2020. For more on the impeachment trial, we're joined by Marjorie Cohn, professor emerita at Thomas Jefferson School of Law and the former president of the National Lawyers Guild. Her most recent book is "Drones and Targeted Killing: Legal, Moral, and Geopolitical Issues."
