President Donald Trump sent out a tweet last night that sent shockwaves across the Progressive Party Press. Of course, a Trump Tweet that triggered Progressive trolls is not all that rare, frankly, but here’s the latest.
This is what Donald Trump said in his tweet:
If Chicago doesn’t fix the horrible “carnage” going on, 228 shootings in 2017 with 42 killings (up 24% from 2016), I will send in the Feds!
In the wake of FORMER President Obama and FORMER Attorney General Loretta Lynch calling on bringing in the Feds to clean up police departments over alleged acts of racism (see Ferguson, Baltimore), it is rich to see progressives now calling the President a tyrant for doing what their President had been threatening to do.
Whether you are for or against this move by President Trump, you cannot HELP but LOVE the irony of seeing so many progressives now indignant that the President would call in the Feds, so to speak, to clean a city up.
Their problem is not that Federal power would be used to bring a city to heel, but that the Federal power would be used to stop gun violence and not to simply empower their social justice, cultural Marxist agenda.
