Desperate Trump Says Democrats Are ‘Too Dangerous’ to Govern’

In a desperate plea for help in the upcoming midterm elections President Donald Trump late Saturday used some of his most inflammatory and excessive rhetoric to date. He said that Democrats have become “too extreme and too dangerous to govern.”

After his unhinged appearance at a political rally in Topeka, Kansas the president tweeted:

You don’t hand matches to an arsonist, and you don’t give power to an angry left-wing mob. Democrats have become too EXTREME and TOO DANGEROUS to govern. Republicans believe in the rule of law – not the rule of the mob. VOTE REPUBLICAN!”

At the rally in Kansas he had given the partisan crowd roughly the same message. Also during the rally, Trump described a grim view of the negative fallout from Democratic victories in November, saying:

“If you allow the wrong people to get into office things could change. They could change and they could change fast. And we’re not going to let that happen.”

Trump was alluding to the battle over his Supreme Court appointee, Brett Kavanaugh. The U.S. Senate confirmed Kavanaugh on Saturday in a 50-48 vote, with one GOP senator absent and another voting “present.” Every Democrat opposed Kavanaugh’s nomination except for Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia.

The Kavanaugh confirmation came despite multiple sexual misconduct allegations against him. Before he was confirmed a week-long supplemental FBI investigation found no corroborating evidence of the claims, Republican senators said. Democratic senators, however, labelled the short, restricted FBI probe a “sham” and a “farce.”

Throughout the Kavanaugh confirmation process has issued inflammatory warnings, saying that “due process was under attack” and that it was a “very scary” time for young men who could be wrongly accused of a crime. He has won political favor in some corners by painting MEN as the victims of sexual assault allegations.

The president’s statements concerning due process and “mob” rule have been heavily criticized by many people on social media. Of course, it was Trump and his supporters who chanted “Lock her up” about his presidential opponent Hillary Clinton. They wanted her to be jailed with no due process at all.

As always, Trump has a double standard, and holds himself out as the victim of his own abuses. Hopefully the American people are smart enough to see through his lies and his double dealing. Hopefully American voters in November will make the right choice and put Democrats in control of Congress to serve as a check on the power of the unhinged monster who currently occupies the Oval Office.
