‘Tick tock sweetheart’: Trump gets brutally mocked for his ’embarrassing’ rant about impeachment

Published

on

Four days after the release of Attorney General William Barr’s redacted version of the Mueller report President Donald Trump is both claiming it exonerates him while attacking Mueller’s team and the report.

And now he’s gaslighting Americans about the meaning of “high crimes and misdemeanors,” and what acts rise to the level of impeachable offenses.

Trump is wrong on all counts. Notice, also, he’s neglected to include treason and bribery.

Article Two of the United States Constitution clearly states:

“The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”

The Constitution does not define bribery, or “high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”

And the Mueller report in no way exonerated him, certainly not from obstruction – as much as he claims it did.

Meanwhile, if Democrats committed crimes, why is the Dept. of Justice not investigating  and prosecuting those “crimes”?

On social media, Trump’s tweet garnered a good deal of mockery – and attempts to educate the President on impeachment:

In an interview with former Trump White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci, Kelly said that "I agree" with what Mattis said about how dangerous it is for the president to propose using the American military against American citizens who are protesting against police brutality.

"The idea you would unleash American active duty folks unless it's an extreme situation... the troops hate it," Kelly said. "They don't see it as their jobs. They don't want to be used in that way."

Published

President Donald Trump accused China of purposefully infecting Americans with the coronavirus.

The president boasted about the surprise return of 2.5 million jobs last month -- the largest increase on record -- and claimed that showed the coronavirus pandemic was winding down and the U.S. economy was opening back up.

"We're at 105,000 lives [lost to the virus]," Trump said Friday outside the White House. "We also closed it up to Europe. Europe became very infected from China, a gift from China, not good. They should have stopped it, they should have stopped it at the source. It's a gift from China and a very bad gift, I will tell you that, and you do say, how come at Wuhan where it started and they were very badly -- they were in bad trouble."
