President Trump will forever be known for the way he revolutionized access to the White House.
And no, this isn’t just about his unconventional path to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, but rather his use of Twitter to circumvent the spin of the mainstream media and speak directly to We The People. This real-time political outlet has kept the cable news cabal busy, as Trump continues to divert them into whatever argument he feels like having.
When it comes to reopening the economy – now that we’re beginning to see a little light at the end of the coronavirus tunnel – President Trump took the hyperbole up a notch…and it’s driving the liberal left up the wall.
“Liberate Minnesota, Liberate Michigan, Liberate Virginia,” Trump wrote on Twitter, pointing to Democrat governors who still had their states locked down.
He also singled out New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo after the governor criticized the federal government for failing to pass more funding for his state.
“Governor Cuomo should spend more time “doing” and less time “complaining,” Trump wrote. “Get out there and get the job done. Stop talking!”
Angry Democrats flooded the President’s beloved Twitter with their predictable outrage.
Days after trump supporters in Michigan dangerously prevented emergency workers from reaching hospitals, trump is screaming LIBERATE VIRGINIA, and citing the 2nd Amendment.
He's inciting violence and civil unrest during a pandemic.
Time for #25thAmendment.

The President of the United States tweeting “LIBERATE MINNESOTA!” “LIBERATE MICHIGAN!” and “LIBERATE VIRGINIA” is like inciting violent uprisings against Democratic Governors in the middle of a pandemic when social unrest is dangerous. Trump must clarify his comments immediately.

By tweeting LIBERATE MICHIGAN, Trump knows what he's doing. He's encouraging his fans to gather, spread a virus, & possibly die: all to make life difficult for a governor he hates.
Somehow "petty" doesn't do it justice.
Trump is walking people off a cliff; the GOP shrugs.

Twitter has declined to remove the tweets, as they feel that the general vagueness of the comments do not equate a specific threat.
