According to the Democrat impeachment managers, President Trump is guilty of inciting the Capitol attacks because he said the phrase “fight like hell” in a speech. Turns out, they have too.
The Trump war room turned the tables on Democrats, including impeachment manager Jamie Raskin, who has said the exact same thing.
The Trump campaign account pointed to a “FLASHBACK” of Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., the leading impeachment manager, who said during a 2019 interview with The Atlantic he’d “fight like hell” for the Constitution on the subject of the conservative-controlled Supreme Court and judiciary.
A tweet made by Raskin from September 2020 urges his Twitter followers to “fight like hell” amid the Supreme Court battle following the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
And the list goes on. Who the hell picked this Raskin guy? Is Nancy Pelosi really that incompetent?
In 2017, Raskin similarly said, “We’ve to wake up every day and fight like hell for liberal democracy, not just in Maryland, not just in the United States, but all over the world…”
During the Russia invesigation, Raskin also tweeted, “This is our Democracy–fight for it.”
And Raskin is the only one being called out for his hypocrisy. Democrat Joe Neguse also used martial terminology, saying he was “Humbled to have the support of [Kamala Harris] as we fight to take back Congress…” Eric Swallwell and Ted Lieu have also used similar words.
The thing is, marital rhetoric like “fight” is used all the time in politics. It’s not incitement, and if it was, most Democratic politicians would be in jail.
