Maryland ‘deplorables’ set up billboard warning of armed warfare if Democrats ‘try to impeach’ Trump

Published

on

Residents in a southern Maryland county expressed mixed reviews after a group of “Deplorables” erected a billboard warning “liberals” to take up arms should President Donald Trump be impeached.

“Hey liberals,” reads the billboard in Maryland’s Culvert County, as first reported by DC’s WJLA. “Better get your guns if you try to impeach President Trump. From all of your deplorables in Calvert County.”

Public reaction to the billboard ranges from admiration to discomfort — so much so that the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office has been “flooded with phone calls” about the sign, both for and against it.

“I hate that billboard,” a woman who said her son is afraid of the sign told WJLA. “I think it’s very threatening. I don’t like it at all.”

“I’m a Republican but I think it’s a little offensive,” resident Kelly Mazzella said. “I think you can persuade people on the topics and not insult them.”

Conservative Marylander Michelle Rinker, however, defended the sign to the station.

“I love the billboard,” she told WJLA, adding that “if you attempt to take down a good president, there’s gonna be a problem.”

After mounting complaints to the sheriff, the sign’s owner reportedly agreed to change it once he returned to town.

WATCH: John Oliver exposes Trump’s lies about vote-by-mail — and the Fox News ‘cult’ claiming the election is already ‘rigged’

Published

"Last Week Tonight" host John Oliver's main story Sunday refuted President Donald Trump's latest crusade against vote-by-mail. Trump announced on Twitter that the more people who vote in an election, the more Republicans tend to lose. So, he wants fewer people to have access to the ballot in November, even if people are too scared to go out during the coronavirus crisis.

Oliver called out Missouri Gov. Mike Parson (R-MO), who outright told people not to vote if they were too afraid to vote in the local elections next week.

"Well, hold on there," Oliver interjected. "Voting is a right. It has to be easy to understand and accessible to anyone."

John Oliver rips Fox News’ Tucker Carlson for urging ‘order’ from people of color — but never demanding it of police

Published

on

John Oliver opened his Sunday show, shredding Fox News host Tucker Carlson for uring "order" among protesters, but refusing to urge "order" to police and "wannabe police" who can't stop killing people.

It's a lot, Oliver explained. "How these protests are a response to a legacy of police misconduct, both in Minneapolis and the nation at large and how that misconduct is, itself, built on a legacy of white supremacy that prioritizes the comfort of white Americans over the safety of people of color."

While some of it is complicated, Oliver conceded, most of it is "all too clear."

Cars set on fire blocks from White House as DC protests turn violent

Published

on

The Washington, D.C. protests turned violent as the city approached the 11 p.m. curfew the mayor instituted Sunday afternoon.

The policy of D.C. police is that when they are attacked, they advance forward. So, when fireworks were fired, the line of officers began pushing the protesters back further from the White House. Behind the line of police officers also stand a line of National Guard troops that President Donald Trump has demanded stand watch in the city.

Lights that normally shine on the White House have also been turned off, reporters revealed.
