The Huffington Post pulled a piece calling for the “execution” of President Donald Trump published Saturday by contributor Jason Fuller.
Fuller’s piece contained rhetoric and imagery that seems tasteless, particularly after Wednesday’s events. Fuller boldly declares in the title that “Trump must be prosecuted — if convicted in a court of law — executed.” Fuller doesn’t stop there, however, as he insists that “impeachment isn’t enough” to “drain the swamp,” and to do so means doling out the “ultimate punishment [execution]” in order to fully restore the moral compass of the U.S.
Fuller’s “ultimate punishment” is not only reserved for the president, but also for “everyone assisting in his agenda,” including Republican Reps. Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan and White House strategist Steve Bannon. Fuller claims that “all must face justice” by being tried, convicted and ultimately executed for treason.
Maybe he will just claim it was “art” or a joke that was too funny for conservatives to get. Those are the usual excuses.
BTW, according to the New York Times, the Attempted Mass Murder of Republicans in Alexandria was Sarah Palin’s fault, or something like that. You know, like the Orlando Pulse Massacre was Mike Pence’s fault. It’s amazing how Republicans somehow have gotten extremely good at getting Democrats to murder people.
