Great. Having proven that all the Democrats RINOs and NeverTrumper’s best efforts, they have been unable to drive this president from office and now Bill Weld, a man not fit to shine the president’s shoes suggests that he be executed for treason? He does offer an alternative and that is to be impeached instead in a plea deal. The problem is that President Trump has committed no crime and therefore should not be impeached and to suggest that based on a whistleblower with no personal knowledge of a call he never heard that the president committed treason is just plain lunacy. It is Trump Derangement Syndrome on steroids.
Former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld, who is challenging President Trump in the Republican primaries, proclaimed Monday that the president committed treason through his controversial phone call to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky — adding that the punishment for treason is death.
The statement drew a swift rebuke from the Trump campaign.
“The media’s affliction with Trump Derangement Syndrome has driven them into an actual discussion of the proposed execution of the President of the United States,” communications director Tim Murtaugh told Fox News. “In severe cases of TDS such as this, immediate consultation with a physician is recommended.”
Weld was responding to claims that Trump pressured Zelensky to investigate Hunter Biden — the son of former vice president and current Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden — and threatened to withhold military aid to Ukraine as leverage. Trump has denied wrongdoing.
“Talk about pressuring a foreign country to interfere with and control a U.S. election, it couldn’t be clearer. And that’s not just undermining democratic institutions, that is treason,” Weld said on MSNBC‘s “Morning Joe.” “It’s treason pure and simple. And the penalty for treason under the U.S. Code is death. That’s the only penalty.”
just for the record, Weld has no idea what he is talking about. First of all, it’s not treason to ask another country to see if Biden committed crimes in the Ukrainian affair. And secondly, death is not the only penalty for treason. The minimum sentence is five years minimum and a fine of not less than $10,000. But, they couldn’t defeat Trump in the election or on the issues, so now they want to kill him? Let’s just hope the voters remember of of this nonsense when they pull the lever for a straight Republican ticket.
