Just recently, Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FL), who was previously impeached from the US District Court for the Southern District of Florida for accepting a bribe as a district court judge and committing perjury in his testimony about the case afterward, spoke at a “Stronger Together” campaign rally in Sunrise, Florida.
Shockingly, during the rally, which featured a US senator from the state and four democratic candidates for governor as guests, the disgraced liberal lawmaker thrilled his audience with a joke about President Donald Trump drowning in the Potomac River and alarmingly suggested that it would be a “catastrophe” if someone were to rescue him. How a person could still be in office after such conduct is beyond comprehension.
After pausing for a moment, he stated, “a crisis is if Donald Trump falls into the Potomac River and can’t swim…and a catastrophe is if anybody saves his a**.”
Instead of reacting with horror at such a vile “joke,” however, the audience burst into laughter and applause, apparently suggesting that it would be a bad thing to save the president from drowning to death in the river. Many people remember the boys who watched a handicapped man struggle and drown while they taped it… perhaps Hastings wanted to encourage his audience?
At another point during the rally, Hastings also attacked President Trump’s mental health.
“There is no question that something is tragically wrong with the president of the United States in his mind,” reasoned the dishonorable democrat, who previously referred to Trump as a “sentient pile of excrement.”
Sadly, this type of hateful rhetoric appears to be increasingly common.
Several weeks ago, for instance, Suzanne Gagnon, a resident of Lakewood, Colorado, essentially called for the execution of President Trump in a disturbing “Letter to the Editor” that had been published in the Denver Post.
“If it walks like a traitor, and talks like a traitor, and acts like a traitor…it is a traitor,” asserted Gagnon in the letter that was published. “Ethel and Julius Rosenberg were executed on a basis of far less evidence than is had on Trump and many in his administration,” she added as if to suggest that Trump and other members of his administration should be executed.
By saying this, Gagnon seems to be suggesting that Trump is a traitor who should be executed alongside other members of his administration, which is something many would undoubtedly view as utterly absurd.
A few days before that, former President Barack Obama bashed President Trump while speaking at an event in South Africa by lashing out at national leaders who “completely make stuff up.” In an attempt to justify his attack, he claimed that undermining facts could supposedly lead to democracy’s “undoing.”
He then went on to essentially suggest that Trump spends his time doubling down on lies instead of repeatedly trying to correct the false claims of others.
Specifically, he stated, “we see the utter loss of shame in political leaders when they’re caught in a lie and they just double down and lie some more.”
Before that, Jennifer Rubin, who is an MSNBC contributor and extremely outspoken anti-Trump journalist, basically called on others to incessantly harass White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
To justify such harassment, Rubin, quite sickeningly, claimed that Sanders doesn’t really have a right to live free of any fuss and should, therefore, be punished for life with discomfort for allegedly “inciting against the press” and “lying to the press.”
And prior to that, liberal comedian Kathy Griffin, who sparked a massive amount of controversy after posing with a fake replica of Trump’s decapitated head, retracted the apology that she had to the president for doing so and then proceeded to attack him and his family. She also made sure to bash Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) viciously attacked Omar Navarro, who is a conservative Latino politician currently campaigning for her seat in Congress, and Gen. Michael Flynn, who had just endorsed Navarro.
In addition to Navarro and Flynn, Waters recently bashed the president by calling him “Con Man Don” as well. What’s worse, while speaking at an event a few weeks ago, Waters also called on others to essentially adopt Brownshirt tactics and harass political opponents.
Alarmingly, some members of the Trump administration have even been harassed by others while out in public.
Moreover, Steven Miller, who currently works as a policy advisor to President Trump, was allegedly harassed by an unidentified bartender. According to reports, the unknown bartender purportedly followed him outside, yelled his name, flipped him off, and cursed at him while he was picking up takeout sushi.
Without a doubt, many would agree that this kind of divisive rhetoric and disturbing behavior must not be tolerated. Unfortunately, though, based on the reaction that Hastings received at the recent rally in Florida, there still appear to be countless others don’t have a problem with such hateful conduct.
