    Tweet by Donald Trump:

    "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!"

    And it was defended by Lindsay Graham. Un-freaking-believable.
    • Does the idiot-in-chief have an opportunity to defend himself? Thousands who were lynched did not.
    • Does Congress have the legal right to pursue the course they are? Those who lynched thousands certainly did not -- and almost all the time were never punished for it.
    • Is the Crybaby-In-Chief seriously imagining that he, and only he in all the world, is being mistreated? Weren't any of those thousands who were lynched, had their bones and body parts carried away as souvenirs and worse, at least a little more mistreated than his weepiness?
    I could not bear to be an American and not stand up now and say, "this idiot has really got to go, for the simple dignity of our nation."

    To be fair, he has been treated 'worse than Lincoln'. He was only assassinated, whereas Trump is constantly being subjected to scrutiny and oversight.

    Yeah, and the Chub-in-Chief doesn't like to be seen with his own daughter, Tiffany, because he thinks she looks fat.

    This is, to put it in the simplest terms possible, an awful man.

    If I used his words, the FBI would come down on my like a ton of bricks. But impeachment is OK.

    If he sent troops or perhaps Atomwaffen to murder Pelosi, the slack-jawed cowards in Congress would maybe, just maybe, say that was unfortunate and they did not approve. But Emperor Donald the First must be obeyed no matter what - after all, he's the Emperor.

    And now we have even more crazy Republicans going ever further into darkness - one lunatic coming out in favor of locking up women so they can't get abortions - even worse than ISIS.

    Yep.
    All political biases aside, he can fairly be described as a moronic ***hole.

    What he said was disgraceful. But in the grand scheme of things, it was just another little droplet of crap emanating from the frothing mouth of Der Donald. Really nothing new and really not as bad as a lot of other stuff he has said and done.
