Trump ridiculed for being clueless about the definition of a ‘coup’ as he attacks the impeachment inquiry

Published

on

President Donald Trump has long claimed that any investigation into his administration was a “witch hunt.” But as polls have shown growing support for impeachment, he has now escalated his rhetoric against checks and balances.

On Tuesday, Trump claimed that there was a “coup” occurring in America.

OANN anchor goes down in flames for reporting Christopher Columbus saved natives with Christianity

One America News Network anchor Liz Wheeler took on history this week when she suggested that Christopher Columbus actually ended atrocities against Native Americans by bringing Christianity to America.

In a series of eye-popping tweets on Monday, Wheeler decided to celebrate Columbus Day by whitewashing the explorer's legacy.

"Christopher Columbus didn't commit genocide," she wrote. "Within 200 years of Columbus's arrival, 95% of the 20M Native Americans died... from disease. Smallpox, flu, tuberculosis, malaria, plague, measles, cholera."
