Lt. Gov. @DanPatrick, arguably the most powerful politician in Texas, tells @ChadHastyRadio the impeachment hearings are "a farce. It's a kangaroo court. It's a joke." youtu.be/WuqC-8sJlJ4
 
Patrick says he met with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West at Joel Osteen's Lakewood Church last Sunday, where Kanye performed. Patrick says Kardashian asked for his help intervening on behalf of #RodneyReed, but Patrick says he told her, "It's not my call. It's the governor's call."
 
Lt. Gov. Patrick says he gave Kanye a pin that he had designed. The pin had an American flag, a Texas flag and a cross. "He loved it. I gave him one. He wore in on the stage the whole time," Patrick said.
 
Lt. Gov. Patrick: "One of the things we are fighting now, Chad, in this country, it's the secular left. I would say the anti-God secular left fighting against the right in this country. ... They're trying to kick God out of our country."
 
Lt. Gov. Patrick: "That really is what's on the line in 2020 for me. We're not talking about taking on Democrats. ... We're talking about enemies of the word of God in many cases. I know that many sound controversial, but they like to create chaos. The left, the left, the left."
