The left is normalizing violence against Donald Trump



democrats are on a tear. They are coming unglued, so filled are they with the hatred of Donald Trump. He wasn’t supposed to win and democrats are still butt-sore, so they fabricated a fantasy about Russian collusion and tried to take him down with it. Former FBI Director James Comey blew that one out of the water, so today collusion is out, but obstruction is in.

Except that that’s out too.

Elizabeth Price Foley joined Alan Dershowitz and Jonathan Turley in educating our friends on the left that nothing Donald Trump has done amounts to obstruction:

“To the extent that people want try to make this obstruction of justice, there’s a million different layers why this is not technically obstruction of justice, either as a statutory matter or a constitutional matter,” Foley said. “But this point particularly about a ‘corrupt intent’ is even worse. Because think about it, the president also has the authority under Article II [of the Constitution] to pardon people, but we don’t say for example that the president can’t pardon a certain person because he has a corrupt intent, he likes the guy he’s known him for a long time so therefore he can’t pardon him.”

“The pardon power like the power to head the investigative, or the rest of the executive branch like the FBI, like the DOJ is a plenary discretionary authority of the president. He can pardon anybody for any reason he wants, corrupt purpose or no, and he can direct the investigation or non- investigation corrupt motive or no,” she added.

They’re running out of legal means to rid themselves, so they’re resorting to new tactic:

“Will no one rid me of this troublesome President?”

It started as casual banter. Over at Buzzfeed, Maycie Thornton hoped that “Maybe someone will assassinate” Donald Trump.



Then Kathy Griffin wore her emotions on her, er, hand as she revealed her desire to behead Donald Trump.


Now there’s even a play about assassinating Donald Trump. It’s thinly veiled as a recreation of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, featuring an orange-haired contemporary business-suited Trump-like Caesar who gets gutted.

Bank of America and Delta Airlines have dropped their sponsorship of the play, but the NY Times continues its support. Fareed Zakaria, author of The Post American World, calls the play a “masterpiece.” Zakaria’s boss, Time Warner, is also a sponsor.

An image of Zakaria is embedded in the Daily Wire article.


The collusion and obstruction lunacy have failed. Zakaria asserts that there are only two forces left to constrain Trump- the media and the courts.  I guess if that doesn’t work to the satisfaction of Zakaria and the left, then assassination is the only resort. The only “reasonable” thing to do.

So they’ve begun to normalize the possibility. To pave the road and invite the appropriate traveler. You can almost hear Zakaria pleading for it.

I get that they hate him, but this is frightening- even for the left.

Every one of these anti-trump wackos need to be investigated and brough under RICO and anti terrorists laws after all Obama is his last years as emporer released many dangerous and deranged maniacs from prison and Obama needs sent to prison for life and even longer

I fear some idiot is going to think he will get hero status if he harms Trump. I hope DJT stays well. I still support him and hope he will be able to enact his agenda.

Rep. Brad Sherman a radicalized Ca demorat is filing charge of impeachment in the house on Trump. has this asshole ever considered the consequences of this pandered, political grand standing move? Zakaria is a raving lunatic-his mental status qualifies him with an Aix1- delusional paranoia. there is no cure for this type of behavior.

I understand the guy who assinated President William McKinley though he would be some kind of folk hero he ended up getting fried in old sparky asa common crinimal and assasin

There’s a reason almost every mass killer has been a liberal. They believe everyone’s opinions and lives are inferior to their own and, as such, they are justified and have the right to deny anyone else their freedom… or life.

This is not a threat, just an observation. The violent route will not turn out well for them. I don’t think they are thinking this through.

And when this violence comes back to haunt THEM, all their justifications will be forgotten and they will be “saddened and horrified”, and ready to increase taxes to establish a new government agency to combat “normalized violence” that obviously originated on the Right.

@David Horning: … and ask for “civility”.

@David Horning: Obviously…except that it didn’t. Sad to see you took the bait, jackass.

@Nathan Blue: It didn’t? Didn’t you hear numerous Democrats call for civility and proclaim unity then, practically in the next breath, blame Republicans or make excuses?
