Illinois Rep. Adam Kinzinger says he “never imagined” such a message from a president.
….If the Democrats are successful in removing the President from office (which they will never be), it will cause a Civil War like fracture in this Nation from which our Country will never heal.” Pastor Robert Jeffress, @FoxNews

This is just a reprehensible way to talk and people could get hurt. This isn’t about partisan teams anymore – it’s clear now he will allow the Republican Party to eat itself and will tear the country apart if he thinks it gives him an advantage of any kind. https://t.co/Sg2U76BYFS

Hey @brianschatz – question:
The President just said that if Congress impeaches him, his suppporters will rise up in armed insurrection. “Civil War”, he says.
So tomorrow will Senate Republicans
a. support impeachment inquiry; or
b. condemn him in strong unequivocal terms

if Obama had ever openly called for a civil war, Fox News would have totally lost their collective minds. Hannity would have shit red-hot cinder blocks. the incandescent furor from the wingnut outrage-industrial complex would have torn a fucking hole in the space/time continuum

Any president who would prefer civil war to being removed from office does not love their country and is certainly not serving it

Isn’t promoting Civil War another article of impeachment?
I think so.

A president calling for their own country’s civil war is a “high crime”
Don’t @ me.

So far this weekend, Donald Trump has called for executing whistleblowers and members of Congress, and threatened a new civil war if the impeachment process continues.
That’s the president* doing this. Does anyone see a problem with that?
