Federalist Society Co-Founder Calls Trump Bid To Change Election Day 'Fascistic,' Impeachable...

When you lose the Federalist Society as a Republican, you've really done something.

The co-founder of the conservative legal organization the Federalist Society said Thursday that Trump’s bid to move Election Day was “fascistic” and worthy of impeachment.

Steven Calabresi wrote in a New York Times op-ed that he’d voted for Trump, protested the Mueller investigation and opposed the President’s impeachment over the Ukraine pressure campaign.

But, Calabresi wrote, “I am frankly appalled by the president’s recent tweet seeking to postpone the November election.”

1. If only someone could have told him that trump was a fascist

It’s almost like he willfully ignored all the red flashing light

Funny how that works

5. I guess.

But it’s hard for me to feel very good about his awakening.

I hope he votes for Biden. We need every vote.

9. Persons like Calabresi can possibly bring anti-trump news, support, or votes.

Dems need all the help we can get to beat trump. 'Gift horses need not be looked at in the mouth - proverb, English 1546

[Routine undercutting of such republicons unlikely to net gain any votes]

6. They are still working with McConnell

to stack the courts with pro-Trump right wing judges. So they can fuck off, thank you very much.

3. If only.

“Until recently, I had taken as political hyperbole the Democrats’ assertion that President Trump is a fascist,”

4. When he ran in 2016 I said this the scorpion and the frog

If you know the fable of the scorpion and the frog

I said repeatedly that he was the scorpion and everyone going along with him or looking the other way we’re frogs.

He would eventually kill them because that is his nature.

He is a fascist. He would destroy America and everyone in it to satisfy his lust for power. Anyone who thought he was an ally would realize too late that he never was their friend.

Well I guess this guy finally woke up.

Too late.

7. They knew this was who he was in 2016

Give me a break, Trump was anti Democracy for his whole campaign in 2016. They supported the overthrow of American Democracy and now they want to be outraged that Trump has to nerve to say what they supported all along.

This is Conservatism in America today, it's 100% incompatible with Democracy!

10. So he cheered Trump on when he was hitting other people in the face, until his nose got bloodied.
