"Buy American!" President Donald Trump and his family love to say. While it certainly has a nice ring to it, is there any truth behind their cheer? Late-night television host Jimmy Kimmel of Jimmy Kimmel Live! decided to put his money where the Trump family's mouths are by purchasing merchandise from the Trump Store. Kimmel came to discover that something was greatly amiss.

None of the items were "Made in America," he discovered, and then Kimmel announced he was going to do something about it.

Kimmel bought some memorabilia from the Trump Store, which Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, sons of the President, currently run.

“I’m sure Eric and Don Jr. take this American thing very seriously. These guys are red, white and blue to the core. They’re like a couple of flags wearing hair gel, these two.”

Kimmel continued by pulling a black and gold golf club cover, which Kimmel pointed out "was made in China but decorated in the USA, and that's saying something." Kimmel pulled more Trump-branded goodies out of the box.

"I got a Trump signature duffel bag which is made in China, I got a Trump signature shoe bag which is made in China, I got a blanket...guess where this was made? Yeah, China," Kimmel said as he continued to pull more items out of the box.

Showing a baby bib, "just like the one the President wears when he eats cheeseburgers in bed," Kimmel read that it was made in Peru. The Trump golf medallion was made in China, too.

"Trump's whole platform is about supporting American companies...Trump's company doesn't even support American companies," Kimmel said. "I’ll just file an official complaint and let them sort it out."
The crowd went wild. So did Twitter.

Former Vice President and current 2020 Presidential candidate Joe Biden erupted at a man during an Iowa town hall who accused him of actively working to get his son Hunter a board position on the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings. Biden called the man a "damn liar" before challenging him to pushups.

Republicans seized on the moment as an opportunity to discredit Biden as a candidate, but Fox and Friends cohost Ainsley Earhardt's reaction may be the most deluded yet.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has repeatedly made clear that, after President Donald Trump solicited Ukrainian leaders to announce investigations that personally benefitted him, the decision to launch impeachment proceedings wasn't a political maneuver, but a constitutional mandate.

The move came after years of Trump's supporters, as well as some critics, insisted that impeachment would be political suicide for the Democrats.

Since shortly after the inquiry's announcement in September, support for impeachment outweighed its oppositon as more revelations surfaced of Trump's dealings with Ukraine, but his 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale attempted to show that Pelosi's move to impeach would lose Democrats their House majority.

The House Judiciary Committee, in its public impeachment hearing against President Donald Trump on Wednesday, consulted four constitutional scholars for greater insight to the legal implications of the President's Ukraine scandal—and whether they merit impeachment.

Three witnesses, called by Democrats, each made compelling arguments for the articles of impeachment with which Trump could be charged.

George Washington University professor Jonathan Turley—invited by Republicans—was the lone dissenter.
