Jay Sekulow, one of Donald Trump’s defense attorneys at his impeachment trial, showed a video on the Senate floor on Monday during his closing statements that contained “creepy” background music while Democratic lawmakers called for the impeachment of Trump.

The video was an attempt to show that Democrats have been coming after Trump since he took office. But that quickly backfired when people noticed that these lawmakers made excellent points as to why Trump should be removed from office.
But that’s not all people noticed. Sekulow tried to fearmonger by adding ominous music to the video clip. But it did not work. Twitter users decided to call out the Republican lawyer. Here Are some of the best responses:
he just did it a little mistake .. he showed all the tRump's wrongdoings from the very first day

Wondering who Jay Sekulow got to put that scary music on his powerpoint presentation in the Senate trial?

Was the "The End Is Coming" music REALLY necessary, Sekulow? I mean, your video package of Dems listing viable reasons why your client has been breaking the law from the beginning was nice of you, but still. It's not like anyone was about to explode. #ImpeachmentClosing

Did this MF really dub his video evidence with ominous music??

Did the house managers put ominous mood music under any of the videos they showed? That mixtape of videos Sekulow just showed were desperately produced to push folks drama buttons. #ImpeachmentTrial

Sekulow now playing a video of predominately people of color calling for Trump's impeachment with music that sounds like it's from World War Z in the background.
My dude: It's not our fault that your guy crimes all the time.

In your closing arguments for acquittal of the president you play a “campaign ad” video with ominous music? It’s the fucking Senate. You treat it like reality tv. Fucking joke of a legal defense. #Impeachment

This video Jay Sekulow is playing is the first time, I believe, this Senate impeachment trial has been shown a video including music.

What is this weird, sinister music over the voice bites calling for Trump’s impeachment?
