Zelensky on Impeachment

In a wide-ranging interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky referred to the impeachment of President Donald Trump as a television series, specifically citing the soap operas “Santa Barbara” and “Dallas.” Throwing cold water on what Democrats alleged to be a pressure campaign on Zelensky and his government, the Ukrainian president also said he looks forward to his next conversation with Trump and hopes to visit the White House.

I’ve seen absolutely nothing but mockery and boredom from anybody in Ukraine concerning the impeachment. This is a welcome coincidence between how Ukrainians and most Americans felt about it.
