Trump calls impeachment inquiry a 'lynching'

Source: CNN

President Donald Trump on Tuesday called House Democrats' impeachment inquiry a "lynching," employing a term associated with the extrajudicial killings of African-Americans while calling on Republicans to aid his political defense.

"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 President tweeted.

Trump has repeatedly railed against the probe, calling it a "witch hunt" and a "fraud," but Tuesday marks his first use of the term "lynching," which is associated with a period of horrific racial violence in the United States, in regard to the inquiry. Following Emancipation and the Civil War, killings, often carried out in public settings, known as lynchings, terrorized newly freed black Americans. Thousands of citizens were killed this way.

Trump's use of the term is also notable as he has frequently stoked racial tensions while in office, from referring to undocumented immigrants as an "infestation" to sharply criticizing African-American athletes who protest during the National Anthem.

1. So, that makes breaking the law by coercing foreign governments for aid legal how exactly?

Attack and fume and rave all you want you blubbering orange piece of diseased shit...NONE of it makes your own behavior excusable, legal or any less impeachable.

You, Donald, are about to become the only man EVER impeached by the House, acquitted by a partisan Senate and then rebuked in a landslide re-election campaign. The public is going to see the evidence and the hoops the GOP jump through to defend your worthless ass and it is going to destroy you. We're talking Reagan over Mondale type numbers shit for brains.

I still hope every day that you drop dead Donnie 2 Scoops, and one day I will read that glorious headline "Trump found dead, massive stroke followed by fall, alone in bedroom, covered in KFC crumbs". Until then though, may your blood boil, may your sleep be restless and may you ponder every waking second how "unfair life is for poor wittle Wonnald".

4. Bringing back the classics: Witch Hunts & Lynching?

I just want the end of the reporting of the daily evil of this obviously guilty AF jackass?

At this point, a weekly summary would do?

There has to be other things MOSCOW MITCH is doing that could use the air time?

This Apprentice Spin-Off needs cancelled ASAP!
