Governments often ban books, but not Donald Trump. No, he bans words. He has forbidden words such as “diversity” “science-based,” and “fetus,” according to The Newsweek. The word for today is “Nixon,” and this is why.
Remember Roger Stone? He is Donald Trump’s very unusual friend with alleged links to Russia. Trump sprung him from jail via a pardon. Perhaps, one condition of that release was always wearing a shirt when the president was around. The reason is that Stone has a giant tattoo of President Richard Nixon on his back.
Meanwhile, Trump had not taken suggestions he retires well. Instead, he released a video:
‘No true supporter of mine could ever disrespect law enforcement or our great American flag.’
‘No true supporter of mine could ever threaten or harass their fellow Americans. If you do any of these things, you are not supporting our movement. You are attacking it and you are attacking our country.’
Trump aides indicated that these words were never to pass through their lips. Obviously, this POTUS was not eager to be compared to the infamous old POTUS. Apparently, 45 told aides in “separate conversations” even casual references to the word “Nixon were banned,” CNN reported:
‘He told one adviser during an expletive-laden conversation recently never to bring up the ex-president ever again. During the passing mention of resigning this week, Trump told people he couldn’t count on Vice President Mike Pence to pardon him like Gerald Ford did Nixon, anyway.’
Nixon left office in 1974 after impeachment hearings were underway. The House Judiciary Committee started proceedings after the grim president would not hand over the infamous tapes that tied him to the 1972 Watergate break-in at the Democratic National Committee (DNC) headquarters. President Ford pardoned Nixon shortly thereafter.
Trump has stormed about the White House enraged. He set his hounds from hell onto the Capitol Building to punish the legislators for not handing him the 2020 election. The mob rampaged through its hallowed halls, chanting for Vice President Mike Pence and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to come out of hiding.
The homegrown terrorists shouted that the president invited them. This was true, via tweet before his account was closed. They also chanted “Hang Pence.” The mob had already constructed a gallows on the lawn complete with a noose.
Six people died in the malay including a Capitol police officer. Dozens were arrested, but thus far, the Department of Justice (DOJ) has only charged 70 cases.
‘No true supporter of mine could ever disrespect law enforcement or our great American flag. No true supporter of mine could ever threaten or harass their fellow Americans.’
‘If you do any of these things, you are not supporting our movement. You are attacking it and you are attacking our country.’
The House voted 232-197 to impeach Trump for inciting the mob and violence visited upon the Capitol Building. Ten representatives moved over to the Democrats’ side during the vote.
