Since taking control of the U.S. House of Representatives last Thursday, Democrats have done everything imaginable to create more partisan divides and go after President Donald Trump.
Just hours after Democrats took control of the lower chamber, one liberal filed articles of impeachment, another introduced a measure to completely abolish the electoral college, and at least three others discussed impeaching Trump from office.
They have wasted little time pushing their far left agenda, and now they are insulting Trump supporters.
On Tuesday night, Rep. Steve Cohen — who introduced the measure to abolish the electoral college — implied on Twitter that Trump’s address from the Oval Office resembled Ku Klux Klan “tactics.”
Cohen also strongly suggested that Trump’s “audience” is similar to Ku Klux Klan membership.
Below is a screenshot of the tweet Cohen deleted:
In another tweet, Cohen uploaded an image that was aimed at deriding Americans as “plain folks of the land” whose souls are embodied by “a downright and complete narcissistic moron” like Trump.

Cohen wasn’t the only Democrat who has gone after Trump in the past week.
While speaking at an event for MoveOn last Thursday, Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Michigan, launched into a profanity-laced diatribe against Trump.
“People love you and you win. And when your son looks at you and says, ‘Momma, look you won. Bullies don’t win,’” Tlaib said, recalling what her son told her.
“And I said, ‘Baby, they don’t.’ Because we’re gonna go in there and impeach the motherf**ker!” she added, with the crowd roaring with cheers.

To remove a sitting president, the U.S. Constitution requires conviction of “treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.”
The impeachment process would require a majority vote in the House and two-thirds of the Senate, which is controlled by Republicans.
In essence, even if the House were to advance impeachment, there’s likely no way it would ever pass in the Senate, so long as the upper chamber is controlled by a GOP majority.

Nevertheless, Democrats are pushing for Trump to be removed from office.
Just hours after Democrats officially took control of the House, Rep. Brad Sherman, D-CA, re-introduced articles of impeachment
that he filed last year.

Rep. Adam Smith, D-Wash., told CNN on Thursday: “It’s not too soon to be talking about it. We’ll have to decide whether or not it’s the correct course of action, but certainly, we should be discussing it and asking those questions and figuring out what the best course of action is.”
During an interview with TODAY’s Savannah Guthrie that aired on Thursday morning, newly elected House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she believes a sitting president can be indicted.
“Do you believe the special counsel should honor and observe the Department of Justice guidance that states a sitting president cannot be indicted?” Guthrie asked.
“No, I mean I don’t think — I do not think that that is conclusive. No, I do not,” she said.

In less than a week, Cohen compared Trump supporters to the KKK and introduced a measure to abolish the electoral college; his allies filed articles of impeachment discussed removing the president from office.
