Following Democrats launching a formal impeachment inquiry into President Trump, Beto O’Rourke – whose campaign for 2020 is hanging on by a thread – just issued a demand for the president to resign!
Amid the “controversy” over Trump’s call with the Ukrainian president, which is really more like yet another longshot attempt by Dems to get Trump out of office, reminiscient of the “Russia collusion” fairytale, Beto believes that,
“The single best thing to bring the country together would be Donald Trump’s resignation — much in the same way that President [Richard] Nixon as his high crimes became public…he made a decison — ultimately in his best interests for his legacy and the consequences he faced — but also for this country, to ensure we could heal and unify again.”
Beto has also urged Trump's friends and advisor to urge him towards resignation!
Twitter users don't seem to be standing in solidarity with Mr. Robert Francis on this one.
In fact, the responses to the videos of Beto calling for Trump's resignation are FULL of people twisting Beto's demand back around on him!
Here are some of the best replies:
Other patriots know what's really going on here.
Beto's call for Trump's resignation is just a last-ditch effort to salvage his dying presidential campaign.
Furthermore, the impeachment attempt of Trump by Dems just goes to show you what they think their chances are of winning in 2020!
Too bad for them!
It's not going to work!
Fox News has more to say about Beto's call for Trump to resign:
Democratic presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke called on President Trump to resign Saturday over the controversy surrounding Trump’s July call with the Ukrainian president -- saying it would be the best chance to bring the nation together.
“This country is as divided as it's ever been, is being driven further apart every day by this president,” the former Texas congressman said at the Texas Tribune Festival in Austin. “The single best thing to bring the country together would be Donald Trump's resignation -- much in the same way that President [Richard] Nixon as his high crimes became public...he made a decison -- ultimately in his best interests for his legacy and the consequences he faced -- but also for this country, to ensure we could heal and unify again ”
Democrats in the House and on the 2020 campaign trail largely have backed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s formal launch of an impeachment inquiry this week after details of President Trump’s call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky were made public.
The transcript of that call, which was released after the surfacing of a whistleblower complaint, shows Trump seeking assistance in investigating Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter. Specifically, Trump asked Zelensky about Biden’s role in securing the firing of a prosecutor who was investigating an energy firm to which Hunter had ties.
The Texas Tribune also said:
Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke said during an appearance Saturday at The Texas Tribune Festival that President Donald Trump should resign.
"The best possible path ... is for this president to resign, allow this country to heal and ensure that we come back together with the greatest, most ambitious agenda we've ever faced, none of it possible while he remains in office," the former El Paso congressman said during a conversation with MSNBC's Garrett Haake at The Paramount Theatre in Austin.
While the Republican president is unlikely to heed O'Rourke's counsel, the comment underscored O'Rourke's response this week to the launch of an impeachment inquiry in the U.S. House. Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-California, announced the inquiry Tuesday after new revelations about Trump's dealings with Ukraine.
O'Rourke has been voicing support for impeachment since his 2018 U.S. Senate campaign, and he told Haake that he is "very grateful" Pelosi announced the inquiry and that he is "cautiously optimistic about the path we're on now."
Reminded that the Republican-led Senate is highly unlikely to remove Trump from office, O'Rourke expressed hope that this impeachment process would play out like the one in 1974, when GOP senators — after initially backing a Republican president — went to the White House to tell President Richard Nixon that he no longer had their confidence. O'Rourke also suggested that administration officials concerned with Trump's conduct could tell him it's time to go.
Asked if a President O'Rourke would pardon Trump in that scenario, he gave a one-word answer: "No."
During the interview, O'Rourke continued to defend his crusade for a mandatory buyback program for assault weapons, saying the gun violence epidemic "can't be met by half steps," and he discussed the viability of his consistently low-polling campaign, vowing to "surprise a lot of people."
