In the year 2019, almost nothing should be surprising when it comes to how politicians behave. We’ve almost seen it all.
The divisive and hate-fulled hyperbole that blankets the airwaves leaves very little to the imagination these days. Kathy Griffin, for instance, felt that the President of the United States should be beheaded, and so, rather than privately convey this to her closest acquaintances, held up a photo-realistic visage of his severed head for the entire world to see.
This dog whistle to the radical left was followed just 14 days later by the actions of James T. Hodgkinson – a former Bernie Sanders campaign worker who attempted to assassinate the entire GOP charity baseball team.
Now, as the 2020 election comes into focus, a great many of the democratic candidates vying to go toe-to-toe with Trump have ratcheted up their rhetoric accordingly, with one in particular now saying that the President committed treason.
Friday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” 2020 Democratic presidential candidate New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said President Donald Trump committed treason when he said he would accept “dirt” on political opponents from foreign countries.
De Blasio said, “What happened the other day changed my mind because that was treason.”
He continued, “That was treason, what he said was openly treason. It was an invitation to hostile foreign governments to find information on American leaders and give it to Donald Trump to help Donald Trump.”
De Blasio went on to indicate that he is now in favor of Congressional impeachment hearings for the President.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
