Rep. Darrell Issa of Benghazi Shame Says Democrats are ‘Overplaying’ Capitol Riot Deaths
They are all like this, every single remaining Trump supporter or diehard MAGA left is like this. They are the persecuted, they are the victim, they are the ones being kicked while they’re down, Trump just misstepped. The Democrats need to reach out and heal with them because they’re good Americans who just want what is best for this country.
The man who brought us 352 formal congressional investigations into Benghazi(!) is now very sad and calling for Democrats to stop this impeachment stuff. It is unfair, it is like kicking a man when he’s down, attempting to overthrow the U.S. government isn’t really an impeachable act, and doing it at this late date is … akin to throwing him off Twitter!!!!
What. The. Gold-plated fck?
It is true, Darrell Issa, the man who would announce his committee’s new Benghazi investigation to huge fanfare with over the top pronouncements and expectations, and who would then end that investigation having found no wrongdoing and announce it in a Friday 4:30 p.m. news dump, now believes that impeachment hearings at this late point do nothing but just cause damage.
Kicking a guy when he’s down. Issa says the liberals saw an opportunity to cut off 81 million followers.
The liberals do not control Twitter. If we did, Trump wouldn’t have been on Twitter after he said “Lock her up” and “grab them by the p*ssy.” The liberals wouldn’t have waited until after an insurrection. It took Twitter determining that those 81 million would follow Trump’s dangerous orders to kick Trump off and separate him from his hordes. And, in case no one’s noticed, they are not akin.
It also escapes Issa that Trump isn’t that “down.” He is still in the Oval Office able to do a lot of damage.
But Issa wants everyone to feel bad for Trump and says Democrats are just overplaying all this stuff anyway.
“They’re overplaying a lot of things, including the death of these people on Capitol Hill,” Issa said on Fox Business with Maria Bartiroma. “It was a terrible event, terrible things, people need to be punished. But of course they’re trying to use it to imply that there’s only one side that has violence and completely ignoring all of last year and the unchecked violence from the left.”
Last, we are at a loss to explain how calling on the hordes to mob the Capitol and putting lawmakers in dire danger is a “misstep” and that Democrats are “overplaying” the death because it overlooks the violence of this summer. Issa doesn’t point to any officers who lost their lives in BLM’s protests.
These people are horrific.
