As the new year gets well underway, Democrats are ramping up their attacks on Trump.
The kitchen sink is being thrown at the President as Democrats prepare to try and retake the White House from him in 2020.
But one Democrat immediately regretted an attack on Trump he recently tweeted.
Congressman Steve Cohen (D-TN) is under heavy fire after he sent a tweet about President Trump that left the nation stunned.
In the middle of a federal government shutdown over border security and building a wall along the U.S.-Mexican border, Cohen tweeted that President Trump’s Oval Office address this week was the same as Ku Klux Klan propaganda from the 1920s.
Breitbart reports, “Cohen tweeted — then soon deleted — a response to presidential biographer Jon Meacham shortly after Trump’s video address to the nation.”
Meacham’s original tweet referenced a 1924 speech regarding anti-immigrant sentiment among the KKK.
Cohen’s retweet included the language “Nearly a century later, the same tactics/similar audience.”
While the Tennessee Democrat quickly deleted the tweet, screenshots remained up on Twitter.
Cohen decided to not only compare Trump to the KKK, but also the 63 million Americans who voted for him in 2016.
In his eyes, tens of thousands of his own constituents are no better than Klan members.
This is likely why the Congressman quickly deleted the tweet, but the Congressman apparently didn’t realize that anything posted on Twitter stays there forever.
Cohen is only the latest in a long line of outraged Democrats who can’t get over the fact that Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in 2016.
But his tweets illustrate the utter contempt he and others like him have for not just the President, but his supporters as well.
To politicians like Congressman Cohen, Trump’s supporters are everything that is wrong with America.
They’re stupid, ignorant, evil, and gullible.
He doesn’t just hate the President, he hates half the country.
While Congressman Cohen may have briefly learned his lesson when he deleted this tweet, it’s far more likely that he deleted it simply out of fear of the public backlash he would have brought on.
Like everyone in the D.C. political class, Congressman Cohen is showing how much he does not care about so many of his constituents, to say nothing about the people of Tennessee or America as a whole.
This, combined with the Democratic Party’s singular hatred of President Trump, means that it should come as no surprise to see a liberal such as him tweet such a hateful attack on the President and his supporters.
Attacks like this are all too common now and will continue as long as Trump is President.
Do you think Congressman Cohen went too far by comparing President Trump and his supporters to the KKK? Do you think he should apologize?
