‘Con man, crook, draft dodger, racist’—actual words House Republicans want to ban in Trump hearing

1253
AUGUST 1, 2016 COLUMBUS, OHIO: The face of Republican Presidential Nominee Donald Trump is seen through the view finder of a TV camera as he speaks to a crowd during a town hall event on August 1, 2016 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio. Ty Wright/The New York Times

You might be tempted to think what you are about to read is a joke, but I can assure you it is not. On Monday, June 10, the House Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on the Mueller report. Ahead of that committee hearing, which is sure to dominate news coverage next week, Republican Rep. Doug Collins, a ranking member of the committee, has sent a letter to its chairman, Jerry Nadler, citing the manual of decorum, with a list of words he wants Chairman Nadler to ban members from using about Donald Trump during the hearing.

It’s quite an incredible list, really. Rep. Collins has quite accurately nailed Trump’s character with these descriptors.

  • Cowardly
  • Infantile
  • Bilking the taxpayer
  • Delusional
  • Hypocritical
  • Liar
  • Amoral
  • Lining the pockets of his cronies
  • Draft-dodger
  • Crook
  • Conman
  • Engaged in illegal activity
  • Crook
  • Racist
  • Bigot
  • Misogynist
  • Un-American
  • Giving aid and comfort to the enemy
  • Spying
  • Abusing power
  • Abusing Executive Privilege
  • Demagogue
  • Disrespected the office

Can you believe these sensitive snowflakes? Collins may have House precedent and rules of decorum on his side, but as Politico reporter Kyle Cheney noted, these rules of decorum do not apply to impeachment hearings. If Democrats want to get specific and call out the alleged crimes  and offenses committed by Donald Trump, they will have to open impeachment hearings on the cowardly, infantile, bilking-the-taxpayer, delusional, hypocritical, liar, amoral, lining-the-pockets-of-his-cronies, draft-dodging, crook, conman, racist, bigot, misogynistic, un-American, spying, power-abusing demagogue who disrespects the office of the presidency every day he is in it.

The nerve of them. They say that stuff every day about Democrats, knowing it only describes them and their loser prez. Silly. I hope Nadler laughs that off and sends it to the shredder. People need to know how serious this is. Lord knows the snowflake , litigation scared news will not say it. Not slander if it’s true. Nadler needs to hold impeachment hearings. The idea of having oversight investigations is not working out so well.

Another poster was SO correct that Hitler should have been stopped/removed long before he murdered millions…trump MUST be removed for the same reasons & principals-he is destroying our environment, resources, economy AND Mueller cares about his “honor/principles” God spare me-stand up for our Democracy…and then make trumps adult loser kids pay their bar bill in Ireland and reimburse the taxpayers-that is making a lot of us enraged….

Actually most of the words they don’t want used
,could be used as “AKA DONALD TRUMP “!!!!!
…each can be described as personally characteristics of Trump !!!!
…Anyone that’s listened to him read ( in 3 word sentences) knows he’s “lost without his script”.
