While everyone in the country is focused on Trump’s blatant violation of American citizens’ constitutional right to peacefully assemble and protest, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) took to Twitter to remind everyone that Trump isn’t just a wanna-be dictator, he’s also the world’s worst liar.
Trump’s lies have been recorded and he rarely gets through even a day without uttering yet another statement that’s easily fact-checked or simply beyond the realm of the believable, lying to the American people during a time when it is experiencing the worst pandemic since 1917, the worst depression since 1929, and the worst civil unrest since the 60s is just reprehensible.
Trump went to his bunker during the protests on Sunday night because people were gathered outside, some even setting fires and destroying property. It’s entirely understandable that the Secret Service would insist on protecting the president, that’s their job, but it is pretty telling that Donald Trump is the only president who had to use it because his own people were sick of him. There was no “inspection,” Trump hid in the bunker and he doesn’t want anyone to know.
Tear gas was most definitely used on the protesters on Monday so that Trump could stroll across the lawn to St. John’s Church for a photo-op. It was live on television and everyone saw it. Full stop.
Antifa is not an organization. There is no membership. It’s simply a belief, a stance of anti-fascism. Trump and his allies can use them as a tactic to frighten their voters and deflect from the real problems, such as the white supremacist plan to incite a race war in the middle of the protests, but no one with any sense is buying it.
Twitter certainly isn’t buying it. Read some of their comments below:
