Earlier this week, President Donald Trump was targeted by Jerry Brown (D), the governor of California, during an interview with Andrea Mitchell, who’s an anchor for MSNBC, which is a well-known liberal news outlet.
Apparently, the democratic leader, known by many as “Governor Moonbeam,” seemed to incite action against President Trump and urged that something’s got to happen to him otherwise he is going undermine the United States and possibly the rest of the world. Unsurprisingly, his comments seem to target unhinged leftists, and make many people wonder what sort of evil person would say this, hoping to generate violence.
“First, I want to say that it’s really extraordinary that the president can deny science like that, but he’s done so many other terr—what’s the word, I don’t even have an adjective,” began the democrat in response.
“It’s bad, and how we counteract it is with a climate summit, with normal people respecting the truth, and communicating that with other normal people, and combating the President of the United States in what are lies, distortions, and quite frankly, bizarre behavior,” he added.
Basically, by saying this, Gov. Brown is claiming that their solution to Trump’s refusal to place regulations that are extremely harmful to the economy is to simply enforce similar burdensome rules at a state level, which many would agree hardly makes sense.
A bit later, Mitchell asked the governor what he thought about the impact that leaving the Paris climate agreement, which President Trump formally pulled out of shortly after taking office.
“Trump is an enabler,” he replied. “We often hear the term ‘enabler.’ He’s an enabler of climate negligence and climate avoidance. So that’s what’s bad about it,” continued the California governor as if to suggest that refusing to ruin the US economy with what numerous economists would consider terribly misguided policy is somehow being neglecting or avoiding the purported issue of climate change.
Many people are angry that these two apparently believe in climate change ‘theory,’ despite the contrary evidence.
“So we have to make sure that all these other countries, whether it’s Russia, or Poland, or South America, Brazil, whatever the heck it is, everybody’s gotta step up, and the President of the United States should be the cheerleader, the exemplary, and instead, he’s the saboteur,” he added, noting, “and that’s a tragedy.”
“Well, the problem is, we never had a president who was engaged in this kind of behavior,” explained the governor.
“I mean he’s not telling the truth; he keeps changing his mind; he’s sabotaging the world order in many respects,” he continued, adding, “so it’s unprecedented, it’s dangerous, and hopefully this election is going to send a strong message to the country; the Democrats will win and then Trump — well, something’s got to happen to this guy, because if we don’t get rid of him, he’s going to undermine America and even the world.”
Although it is unclear what he meant by “something’s got to happen to this guy,” a massive amount of people would view it as an extremely threatening call to action. What’s worse, “something” could refer to an innumerable amount of things, ranging from impeachment to assassination.
While Gov. Moonbeam may not have meant what he said as a call to kill the leader of the US, someone may interpret his comment as such and then attempt to do so on his behalf, which is why hateful rhetoric like his is extremely dangerous.
Sadly, it is relatively common for President Trump and those who work in his administration to be targeted by the seemingly unhinged liberals.
Just recently, for example, The Washington Post’s editorial board published an op-ed suggesting, quite absurdly, that the president is somehow partly to blame for the devastation caused by natural disasters.
Specifically, the authors essentially claimed that since President Trump has resisted the left’s attempt to cripple the American economy with major regulations and expressed some understandable skepticism on the matter, he is somehow “complicit” for the damage done by hurricanes and other natural disasters.
And a few days before that, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) lashed out at Trump and appeared to revel in threatening his supporters while talking at a California event held by the Stonewall Young Democrats.
In addition to that, the liberal lawmaker also reiterated her call for impeachment and added that she also intends to target others, like Vice President Mike Pence, for impeachment as well.
Moreover, Waters also, quite bafflingly, criticized Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), who is a well known critic of the Trump administration, for apologizing to Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the numerous interruptions that occurred during his confirmation hearing to the Supreme Court.
Before that, Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FL), who was impeached as a federal judge for purportedly taking a bribe and later perjuring himself during a hearing about it, made a disturbing joke about how someone saving the president from drowning to death would be a “catastrophe.”
And prior to that, former President Barack Obama appeared to subtly bash Trump while giving a speech in South Africa. He did so by basically describing the president as someone who just spends his time lying while also slamming national leaders who “completely make stuff up.”
Much like Gov. Moonbeam, the former president also suggested that democracy will be undone by the undermining of facts.
Aside from Trump, the authoritarian left has also reprehensibly targeted White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway, and White House Policy Adviser Stephen Miller with a massive amount of hate and heartless public harassment.
