Donald Trump made a huge, race-baiting, mistake quite intentionally Tuesday morning when he compared the impeachment inquiry proceedings to a lynching on Twitter. Lynching is a word most associated with the plight of black people in America, and so a white, rich, over-tanned, shallow, mogul should steer away from comparing anything he is going through to a hanging.
Trump said this on Twitter:
So some day, if a Democrat becomes President and the Republicans win the House, even by a tiny margin, they can impeach the President, without due process or fairness or any legal rights. All Republicans must remember what they are witnessing here – a lynching. But we will WIN!

Now, political pariah Susan Collins is speaking out against the president’s use of the word lynching to describe the inquiry into his impeachable offenses. Collins said this Tuesday:
“Lynching” brings back images of a terrible time in our nation’s history, and the President never should have made that comparison.

People responding to Collins’ tweet were not having her attempt to remain relevant, and let her know exactly how unwelcome her opinion is, no matter how correct she is. It’s safe to say Collins’ career is cooked thanks to her support of alleged rapist Brett Kavanaugh for Supreme Court Justice.
