You just can’t make this stuff up folks!
The Media went into meltdown mode over the past few days because President Trump compared the Democrat’s baseless impeachment efforts to a “modern day lynching”.
Trump's original Tweet:
So some day, if a Democrat becomes President and the Republicans win the House, even by a tiny margin, they can impeach the President, without due process or fairness or any legal rights. All Republicans must remember what they are witnessing here - a lynching. But we will WIN!
The Media had a full on meltdown.
From ABC News:
A check of his previous tweets and public statements showed that this appeared to be the first time he has used the term as president.
"So some day, if a Democrat becomes President and the Republicans win the House, even by a tiny margin, they can impeach the President, without due process or fairness or any legal rights," he wrote. "All Republicans must remember what they are witnessing here - a lynching. But we will WIN!"
President Donald Trump speaks during a Cabinet meeting in the Cabinet Room of the White House, Oct. 21, 2019.
Criticism of the president’s tweet was swift - from Democrats and some Republicans.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told ABC News Senior Congressional Correspondent Mary Bruce that Trump’s word choice was “unfortunate.”
“Given the history in our country, I would not compare this to a lynching,” McConnell said. “It is an unfair process.”
“And a better way to characterize it would be as an unfair process,” he added.
GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois said the word referred to a “painful scourge in our history” and called on Trump to retract his statement.
“We can all disagree on the process, and argue merits. But never should we use terms like “lynching” here. The painful scourge in our history has no comparison to politics, and @realDonaldTrump should retract this immediately. May God help us to return to a better way,” Kinzinger tweeted.
A top Democrat, House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn, D-S.C., said on CNN, “"That is one word no president ought to apply to himself. You know, I've studied presidential history quite a bit, and I don't know if we've ever seen anything quite like this."
Congressional Black Caucus Chair Rep. Karen Bass, D-Calif., in a statement, called the president’s use of the word “unacceptable” and said it would “behoove” him to visit the National Memorial for Peace and Justice in Montgomery, Ala.
“Every time his back is up against the wall, he throws out the red meat of racial rhetoric and attacks communities of color, but the American people aren’t taking the bait,” she said.
But....here's the best part.
And you just can't make this stuff up!
Every time the Media and the Democrats think they've got Trump backed into a corner, it always seems to backfire on them!
It's like Wile E. Coyote trying to chase down the Roadrunner.....the anvil always falls on the Coyote's head!
