Democrat Uses Sick Fictional Example of Zelensky’s Daughter Duct-Taped in Trump’s Basement to Make Point

In an extremely bizarre argument for impeachment, Democrats Lawmaker Hank Johnson claimed Zelensky was intimidated by Trump because Trump is taller and there was an “imbalance of power.”

Johnson used dark fictional imagery, asking those listening to imagine Zelensky agreeing to do what Trump said “as if his daughter was downstairs in the basement, duct-taped.”

Hank Johnson:

A big chair for President Trump, little chair for President Zelensky. Big, six-foot-four President Trump, five-foot-eleven Mr. Zelensky, President Zelensky. And they’re standing there, President Trump is holding court.

And he says, “Oh, by the way, no pressure.” And you saw President Zelensky shaking his head as if his daughter was downstairs in the basement, duct-taped. [Laughter] I mean, there’s an imbalance of power in that relationship.

It always has been. And there’s no way that the nation of Ukraine can stand up to the power, the power of the United States of America. And President Trump used that unequal bargaining position. He leveraged his power in that relationship, not for the benefit of the United States of America, but for his own benefit.
