When America’s 43rd President George W. Bush stepped aside from the presidency on January 20, 2009, he moved back to his ranch in Crawford, Texas and kept a low profile. His successor Barack Obama, on the other hand, decided to remain in Washington, D.C. so that he can stir the pot against Republican President Donald Trump.
In a truly disturbing turn of events, one of Obama’s top associates got involved in a dangerous way. Obama’s former federal ethics chief Walter Schaub recently addressed rumors that President Trump is planning on firing special counsel Robert Mueller right before Christmas.
Posted Schaub on his Twitter account, “This weekend I’m stocking up on portable phone chargers, warm clothes, & gear needed for when we take the streets. I’m concerned the assault on the rule of law is coming over the holidays when we’re distracted. It‘ll be a defining moment for the Republic.”
Obama’s official also advertised an event planned by progressive group MoveOn.org. Wrote Schaub, “I just registered. Join an event to say No One is Above the Law!” MoveOn describes this as a “rapid response protest” that would happen if Trump fired Mueller.
After Schaub got plenty of heat for his dangerous statements, he replied snarkily to conservatives, “This tweet apparently triggered the tiki torch crowd. My theory is people with violent tendencies will hear violence in the language of peaceful protest. But you literally have to agree to the policy of nonviolence and complying with all law enforcement orders to sign up, so…” Are you disgusted with how Obama and his allies have been riling up liberals against Trump?
