President Trump Counter-Attacks Hard, Calls a Coup a Coup
Oct. 2, 2019 (EIRNS)—President Donald Trump has come out swinging against those attempting to bring down his Presidency, stating in a tweet last night that “As I learn more and more each day, I am coming to the conclusion that what is taking place is not an impeachment, it is a COUP, intended to take away the Power of the People, their VOTE, their Freedoms, their Second Amendment, Religion, Military, Border Wall, and their God-given rights as a Citizen of The United States of America!”
This has led to all sorts of predictable histrionics from the liberal establishment; perhaps richest was California Sen. Kamala Harris’s response that Trump’s Twitter account should be shut down because he can’t be allowed to use it for such outrageous charges.
Very effective was Trump’s tweet from late last night, “the Greatest Witch Hunt in the History of our Country,” which includes a few short video clips of Democrats speaking during Bill Clinton’s impeachment, decrying the use of impeachment for political purposes. These include Chuck Schumer warning “we’ve broken the seal on this extreme penalty so cavalierly, it will be used as a routine tool to fight political battles.”
The header “Impeachment for Nothing” is followed by the clip of Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), shouting in January of this year, “we’re going to impeach this motherfucker.” Under the header “Impeachment to undo a national election” a younger, chubbier Rep. Jerald Nadler is also shown during the Clinton impeachment warning that the impeachment of a President is the “undoing of a national election.” This is followed by a recent clip of Rep. Al Green (D-TX), under the header “Impeachment for Political Payback” stating “I’m afraid that if we don’t impeach this President, he will get reelected.”
Trump has had several more tweets over the past 24 hours, attacking the claim that the anonymous whistleblower can’t be interviewed or questioned about his “second-hand information” and allegations about the President’s July phone call with Ukraine’s President Zelensky. He slammed the “Do Nothing Democrats” who are focused on “Impeaching the President for having a very good conversation with the Ukrainian President.”
