Skip to comments.False ‘Coup’ Claims by Trump Echo as Unifying Theme Against Impeachment (BARF)
Posted on 10/02/2019 8:11:49 PM PDT by bitt
President Trump and his supporters now have at least one unifying, if inaccurate, message against the impeachment inquiry. It is, they say, an unconstitutional coup.
Mr. Trump posted that conspiratorial message on Twitter on Tuesday night, saying, As I learn more and more each day, I am coming to the conclusion that what is taking place is not an impeachment, it is a COUP, intended to take away the Power of the People. Early Wednesday, the president tweeted out a ready-for-TV video made by his re-election campaign, repeating the coup claim against a backdrop of grainy shots of House Democrats and Joseph R. Biden Jr.
On Wednesday afternoon, the Trump campaign announced that it would be rotating the ad into an existing $8 million campaign, for broadcast on national cable outlets and on digital platforms.
His use of the phrase follows repeated assertions on conservative media, including by high-profile right-wing personalities and outlets such as Tucker Carlson, Breitbart, Rush Limbaugh and Fox & Friends. Beginning with Sean Hannity at 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday, talk of a coup was discussed nearly every hour on Fox News, by hosts and surrogates. Often, the presidents tweet was shown onscreen and read verbatim. The definition of a coup détat is the sudden illegal overthrowing of a government by a small group. An impeachment is a legal, constitutional process by which Congress accuses high officers of the federal government of misconduct.

Dear Times: which coups were constitutional?
I dont do The NY Times.

The New York Times states, with no evidence, that Trump is incorrect about the coup attempt.
Two can play their game.

The Congress was presented with a packet of verified information today and they choose to call it “conspiracy theories”,.. and the NYT is right there to back them up, lol...
The projection is strong.
And Goebbels smiles from hell as one of his favourite propaganda sources NY Times learned much from his methodologies.
NYT has lost all of its former prestige.....the Gray Lady has given herself over to flagrant presstitution.....
