When Joe Biden ascended to the office of the President, he sure made a lot of promises about “healing” and “unity”.
On more than a few occasions, we would hear Biden tout out some version of his line about being “a president for all Americans, and “not just the ones that voted” for him.
We heard this ad nauseam, day after day in the last few weeks of the campaign, but, apparently, Biden’s supporters aren’t ready to heed that call. Instead, they continue to hurl wild and hyperbolic missives in the general direction of Donald Trump and is supporters.
Take Rob Reiner, for example, who this week suggested that Trump is the leader of some new “confederacy”.
Actor and director Rob Reiner took to Twitter Wednesday demanding that the Senate convict former President Donald Trump, who he referred to as “the new leader of the Confederacy” during “our continuing Civil War.”
“Our original sin is at the the root of our continuing Civil War. Donald Trump, the new leader of the Confederacy, heads the Sedition,” Reiner wrote. “If he is not held accountable with a Senate conviction, there will be no Appomattox,” the site of Robert E. Lee’s surrender to Ulysses S. Grant in 1865.
This is nothing new, of course.
This is not Reiner’s first time trying to pressure lawmakers into impeaching Trump. Earlier this month, the actor claimed that any member of Congress who does not oust the president during his remaining days in office will be supporting sedition, which is a federal crime.
“Any members of Congress that doesn’t support Impeachment and Removal of this President supports Sedition,” tweeted Reiner two days after the Capitol Hill riot.
Reiner has been a staunch opponent of Donald Trump in the past, with plenty of ridiculous allegations already to his name.
