It seems that the Trump-worshiping minions in the right-wing media are deeply upset by the fact that Democrats are daring to make a big deal of the fact that the president’s son, Donald Trump Jr., met with a Russian attorney and former Russian intelligence officer during the 2016 race for the White House.
Take for example Fox News contributor Todd Starnes, who was clearly agitated on his radio show as he discussed the possibly treasonous actions of Donald Jr., commenting:
“If the Democrats and the mainstream media had their way, Donald Junior would be tried, convicted and executed for treason. Tim Kaine and Maxine Waters would set up a guillotine right there in the Rose Garden. Off with his head! Or maybe they want him to die by firing squad. Is that what you Democrats want? Is that what you fake-newsers want?”
Speaking only for myself, I have to disagree with Starnes. I do indeed want Junior tried and convicted, but I think a life sentence is preferable, if only because it would give Donald Trump Jr. 30 to 40 years to think about his actions and get the full prison experience.
Starnes also went after members of the media, railing:
“What about you Mika and Joe? Anderson Cooper? Don Lemon? Rachel Maddow? Do you want to pull the trigger? Do you want to take a whack with the ax? Or maybe you just want to get rid of the entire first family Romanov-style. What’s it going to take to satisfy your bloodlust?
“These reporters, these Democrats, they disgust me. Jackals, foaming at the mouth, seething with fury and hatred for our president.”
How much do you want to bet that if Hillary Clinton was president and this same story about possible collusion came out, Starnes and his conservative colleagues would be calling for blood?
The clearly unhinged Starnes ended his verbal explosion by declaring:
“You want to talk about treason? Let’s talk about the army of reporters and far lefties and Democrats that are trying to take down a duly elected president of these United States. Let’s talk about that, because I’ve got news for you, folks in the mainstream media: It’s not going to happen. So all of you Democrats, and all of you liberal Republicans, and all of you fake-newsers, listen up: Don’t tread on me, you Trump-hating traitors.”
Duly elected? That’s laughable. It’s not going to happen? Careful what you say, Todd. You may have to eat those words–along with a giant helping of crow–in the future.
Here’s Starnes losing his itty bitty mind on the radio:
