Steve VS Hogan

> Steve: Does the house process make the impeachment process any more fair?
LOGIC: #1 asking about "fairness" is OPINION NOT FACT (CRITICAL ERROR, FLAG ON THE PLAY, BUG IDENTIFIED). #2 It is the same process the republicans used to impeach Clinton so it stands to reason that (IFF) it was fair enough for Clinton (THEN) it must also be fair enough for Trump. It would be categorically UNFAIR to use a different process.
> Hogan: 2 things, 1st thing, I dispute your premise, Trump was primarily concerned about Ukrainian Government Corruption. Ukraine was rife with corruption.
LOGIC: ABSOLUTELY 100% DODGES THE QUESTION (ABOUT FAIRNESS). You can dispute a premise, but you then need to explain exactly what you think that premise is and your REASONS for disputing it. Simply saying "i dispute the premise" is not CARTE BLANCHE to just ignore the interviewer and start SPOUTING YOUR TALKING-POINTS.
> Steve: Just to be perfectly clear, you said the premise was incorrect? I've carefully reviewed the transcript, and the president asks about a couple of specific things. #1 a conspiracy theory involving crowdstrike and the DNC server, and #2 involves Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden. Those are the ONLY things the president asks about regarding Ukrainian Government Corruption.
LOGIC: Steve mentions "the premise" (still unspecified), and then forgets all about his fairness question (1st interview question!) and instead follows Hogan's RED-HERRING. And then pointedly questions Hogan's bald assertion that Trump is very concerned about Ukrainian Government Corruption. Crowdstrike is not part of the Ukrainian Government. Hunter Biden is not part of the Ukrainian Government. (IFF) you are concerned about UKRAINIAN GOVERNMENT CORRUPTION (THEN) you should be investigating UKRAINIAN GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS.
> Hogan: What he didn't talk about were his political rivals for 2020. I remember when democrats used to care about what happened in the 2016 election, that's what he was talking about and quite frankly [TALKING-POINT] this is what the president ran on and won on in 2016 [/TALKING POINT] which is making sure the money we give to our allies is spent wisely. I understand that democrats don't care how we spend taxpayer dollars at home much less abroad, but this president does.
LOGIC: Hogan throws down another RED-HERRING. Trump never mentioned 2020. This is a non-sequitur. Nobody is claiming that "Trump mentioned 2020". The actual implicit claim is that Trump IS THINKING ABOUT 2020 A LOT, SOMETIMES EVEN WHEN HE DOESN'T ACTUALLY SAY THE WORDS 2020. The "fact" that Trump never mentioned 2020 on the call is 100% MOOT. Hogan throws down another RED-HERRING.
POSTULATE WHAT HAS TO BE PROVED. Hogan, out of the blue, says he remembers when democrats used to care about 2016. This is a statement of opinion which is stated as fact, conflating opinion with fact. It is also PROVABLY FALSE. Just ask one person, any person who calls themself a democrat, just ask them if they "care about what happened in 2016" and see if their answer contradicts Hogan's opinion stated as fact.
Wildly off-topic, [TALKING-POINT] this is what the president ran on and won on in 2016 [/TALKING POINT].
Are you sure you want to talk about that? Is this the same president who lost the popular vote by over 2 million? Can you perhaps answer the very first question of this interview mr. "landslide"?
We need to make sure our allies spend the money we give them wisely. That sounds nice, but the problem is it is a statement of PURE 100% OPINION. There is absolutely no way anyone can determine if American allies will spend the money they are given "wisely" or not. There never has been and there never will be. Is it wise to pursue a conspiracy theory about the hacking of a DNC server in 2016? Is that really the wisest way the UKRAINIAN GOVERNMENT WHO IS BASICALLY AT WAR WITH RUSSIA AT THE MOMENT, is that really the most important thing for them to be doing?
If Trump is really super concerned about a DNC server hack from 2016, why doesn't he ask the STATE DEPARTMENT TO OPEN AN INVESTIGATION??????????????????????????????????
Hogan closes his statement with another RED-HERRING, POSTULATE WHAT HAS TO BE PROVED, the democrats don't care about how tax money is spent. Same as before, this statement, bald-assertion, opinion stated as fact, IS PROVABLY FALSE.
> Steve: Please wait a second, we've gotta correct a fact here, you said the president did not ask about a 2020 rival, the record shows, the white-house record of the call, the record you released says, Trump asked about Joe Biden, so that is totally false what you just said. Why did you say that false thing?
