President Trump compared the fraudulent impeachment trial he’s facing to a lynching – a comment that Democrats similarly made about President Bill Clinton’s impeachment trial in 1998.
Of course according to the Democrat’s constantly changing rule book, this makes President Trump a “racist.”
The hypocrites on the left went berserk over the comment, trying to drum up as much bad press as they could for the President who they openly fear could win reelection in 2020, unless they successfully interfere with a scam of an impeachment.
Democratic Texas Rep. Al Green somehow used this to liken the President to a KKK member. “It makes you no better than those who burn crosses. It makes you no better than those who wear hoods and white robes.”
“How dare the president compare lynching to impeachment. How dare he do this,” Green said on the House floor Tuesday.
“Does he not know the history of lynching in this country? Does he not know that thousands of African Americans were lynched? Mob violence. Does he not know this is the equivalent of murder? How dare the president compare a lawful constitutional process to mob violence and lynching.”
Would Rep. Green say the same about the multiple congressional Democrats who in December of 1998 compared Bill Clinton’s impeachment to a lynching?
Democratic Illinois Rep. Danny K. Davis condemned the impeachment trial as “a lynching,” and former Democratic Rhode Island Rep. Patrick J. Kennedy called it “a political lynching.”
During the congressional debate about whether or not to impeach a president for the first time since the House voted to impeach President Andrew Johnson on Feb. 24, 1868, several others condemned it as a Republican attempt to remove Clinton from office.
Former Democratic Michigan Rep. John Conyers Jr. said that he was seeing a “Republican coup d’etat” — a phrase that Democratic Reps. Jerrold Nadler of New York and Maxine Waters of California both used as well.
“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!” President Trump tweeted.
The least prominent of the 4 squad members, Ayanna Pressley, also felt the need to weigh in, clearly ignorant of the history of the Democratic party and their use of the word. “Lord give me the strength to not take the bait but hold this man accountable for every single thing he says and does.”
“A lynching?!” tweeted President and Executive Director of the Lawyers’ Committee for the Civil Rights Under Law Kristen Clarke.
“4,743 people were lynched in the US between 1882 — 1968, incl. 3,446 African Americans. Lynchings were crimes against humanity and an ugly part of our nation’s history of racial violence and brutality.”
“Sickened to see Trump’s gross misappropriation of this term today,” she added.
She too, neglected to mention the Democrat’s “gross misappropriation” of the term.
Trump in an interview with Fox News’s Sean Hannity Monday night, said that the Democratic impeachment inquiry is focused only on politics, explaining to Hannity examples where former President Barack Obama was involved in scandals that could have gotten Obama impeached.
“They could have impeached in Obama for the IRS scandal,” Trump told Hannity. “They could have impeached him for the guns, for whatever, when the guns went all over the place and people getting killed … fast and furious. They could have impeached him for many different things. They didn’t impeach him. Then never even thought of impeaching him.”
It’s clear that Democrat’s are targeting Trump and have been since his election. When will they stop this charade? Only time will tell.
