The left has officially gone mad.
Between the blatantly dishonest coverage of the events in Charlottesville, Virginia, to the unhinged reaction to President Trump actually telling the truth about it all, they’ve proven their Trump Derangement Syndrome is completely taking over and crippling their ability to think rationally and use reason. Such is the case with Rep. Steve Cohen, a Tennessee Congressman who is about to file articles of impeachment against the President.
Because his feelings got hurt over President Trump’s press conference on Tuesday.
According to Circa News, the President said the following:
Trump on Tuesday said that there is “blame on both sides” for the turmoil in Charlottesville.
“What about the alt-left that came swinging at the – as you say, the alt-right?” he asked a reporter. “Do they have any semblance of guilt?”
“What about the fact they came charging with clubs in their hands, swinging clubs?” Trump continued at Trump Tower in New York City. “Do they have any problem? I think they do.”
“And you had a group on one side that was bad, and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent.”
That, according to Representative Cohen, is enough to remove the duly-elected President from office.
“Instead of unequivocally condemning hateful actions by neo-Nazis, nationalists and Klansmen following a national tragedy, the President said ‘there were very fine people on both sides,’” he said in a statement Thursday. “There are no good Nazis. There are no good Klansmen.”
“President Trump has failed the presidential test of moral leadership,” Cohen added. “No moral president would ever shy away from outright condemning hate, intolerance and bigotry.”
“Neo-Nazis and the [Ku Klux Klan] are domestic terrorists. If the President can’t recognize the difference between these domestic terrorists and the people who oppose their anti-American attitudes, then he cannot defend us.”
Meanwhile, President Trump has done more in the last seven months to keep our country safe than Obama did in eight years, including forcing North Korea to back down from its threats to nuke the country, which was no small feat. That’s not to mention, ISIS is on the run in nearly every nation it occupies, and Trump is rethinking our strategy in Afghanistan to finally bring the war to an end.
Additionally, the President has ordered our nuclear arsenal to bu updated and breathed new life into our Armed Forces, which were turned into a progressive petri dish by Obama.
But that’s not enough for Cohen, who said that as a Jew, he finds the President’s remarks “revolting.”
“As a Jew and as a American and as a representative of an African American district, I am revolted by the fact that the President of the United States couldn’t stand up and unequivocally condemn Nazis who want to kill Jews and whose predecessors killed 6 million Jews during the Holocaust, and could not unequivocally condemn Klansmen whose organization is dedicated to terrorizing African Americans.”
Sorry, Mr. Cohen, but you can’t impeach the President because your fragile feelings were hurt.
