That seems to be the latest talking point from the most ridiculous of the Fox News pundits, specifically Sean Hannity, Lou Dobbs and Jesse Watters, that the various scandals engulfing Trump, all of his own making, are really a left-wing coup against the government.
SEAN HANNITY (HOST): I just outlined in great detail the Ukrainian issue of influence and real collusion. Then, of course, you’ve got the British Intel dossier, and Comey wanted to pay the guy with false information and he was paying people for the information, but that’s not what we hear about. What do you make of the double standard?
LOU DOBBS: The double standard is more than that I think, Sean by a long measure. This is an effort to subvert the administration of President Donald Trump. It is nothing less, it is an effort by the deep state to roll over a duly elected president and a legitimate government. And to break the will of the American people. This is no longer about Republicans and Democrats and conservatives and liberals, this is about a full on assault by the left, the Democratic party to absolutely carry out a coup d’etat against President Trump aided by the left-wing media.
JESSE WATTERS (CO-HOST): Donald Trump’s family has done more for this country than any Democratic elected official. He has provided more jobs in the real estate industry, in the fashion industry, in the hotel and casino industry, he has created more wealth for anybody in this entire country. So to smear them as mafia or unpatriotic is absolutely shameful and I think everybody needs to wake up and realize this family is a patriotic family and what’s happening right now is a coup against the will of the American people.
Yeah, how about the three of you get together, fire up the brain you apparently share, and learn what a coup is. Then get back to us so we can laugh at you again.
