President Trump just went there.
What is happening now, he wrote, is not an impeachment, "it is a CUP intended to take away the power of the people, their VOICES, their freedoms, their Second Amendment, their religion., The military, the border wall and their godly rights as a United States citizen. States of America! ”
Leaving aside all the terrible things that, in his words, follow his rejection, let's be clear: this is not a coup. and other founders an amp, especially on a party ballot, can be a blunt, reckless, blindly partisan, or blatant suicide, but it's not a coup, even a bloodless variety.
who uses foul language. Maxine Waters, leftist Democratic Congress, responded to his "dirty talk", saying: "The murder is not good enough for Trump. He needs to be imprisoned and put in solitary confinement. "
So much for the due process or the formalities of the trial. Waters already chooses his camera in jail.
I barely finished writing those words when the president tweeted. about "Do nothing to Democrats," saying they "spend everyone's time and energy on [BS.”] except that he spelled it out.
Look, it's hardly surprising that the rhetoric overheats when Democrats own a weapon that only applies to Andrew Johnson, Richard Nixon, and Bill Clinton. But words matter, in political discourse, as in life. And the "coup" was not accidental.
Trump obviously has all the incentives to ignite his supporters by portraying himself as a victim of dark forces, including the media and the deep state.
And critics can abandon their swooning couches when he retweets a phrase like "civil war". Journalists use this term all the time, referring to a Republican civil war or a democratic civil war or some other war.
But the coup is different and therefore requires the arrest of a congressman. . Yesterday Trump called Adam Schiff a "low standard of living" who should resign, saying he couldn't carry Mike Pompeo's "empty belt" (suddenly a joke? Is that a dirty word?) He also ended a tweet about the head of the Intel House: "Arrest (Supposedly, the betrayal is that Schiff exaggerated Trump's comments about calling Ukraine a parody. "
Kamala Harris, trying to break into the news, demands that Twitter has suspended the account of the president, there is zero chance that this will happen as he well knows Senator: Can you imagine the reaction to a company that was already accused of tilting to the left for banning a commander-in-chief with 63 million followers? a clear intention to unjustifiably discredit perpetrators and officials in our government who follow proper channels to report allegations of presidential injustice, "Chief Jack Dorsey wrote on Twitter.
As for the fourth estate, the president told reporters he would largely dump the "fakes" and would call them "corrupt media".
Trump broke away from the Washington Post, but he was wrong; The focus of his anger was a new book by two New York Times reporters, Michael Sheeran and Julie Hirschfeld Davis.
The story of the Times, based on the book, says that at private meetings, Trump "often talked about strengthening the border wall with water ̵
Trump ridiculed the story as a lie and said it was" unwise "to ask if he had ever said such things. (Davis tweeted that the White House did not dispute the bill when the details were presented twice.)
The president then stated that he would essentially abandon his formulation of "fake news" in favor of "corruption news" – which he added. "truly the enemy of the people."
This is the latest sign of Trump's frustration after years of negative coverage in the midst of an impeachment investigation.
But here's the attacker. When John Fox asked John Roberts about the recently published New York Times story that a whistleblower told Schiff employees about his complaint a few days before the statement was made, he said he couldn't believe the paper wrote it, and that maybe it was. the best. When the president views history as more favorable, he miraculously improves his opinion of the press.
