Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) described President Trump as the nation’s “major criminal” and vowed to “eliminate” him as president should Democrats win a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives.
“For me, the major criminal that exists in the United States of America is called Donald Trump, he lives at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue at the White House,” Gutierrez said Saturday at Chicago’s Lincoln United Methodist Church. The congressman’s website described the venue as a sanctuary church and said he “spoke to a packed house about the need to defend DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) and other forms of legal immigration status that are under attack from Republicans and Donald Trump.”
And we’re going to take actions today, and we’re going to take actions tomorrow. And there will soon be a majority in the House of Representatives, and I’m going to make sure that I am there to make sure of one thing, that we write those articles of impeachment and take him to trial before the Senate and eliminate him as president of the United States of America.
Given the DNC’s lousy recent fundraising, it is hard to imagine the Democrats recapturing the House in November 2018, but who knows. It could happen.
Noting that Gutierrez’s speech focused on what will happen to the nation’s illegal aliens, who were coddled under President Obama but who may face deportation under President Trump, commentator Cheryl K. Chumley panned Gutierrez’s performance.
“It’s reminiscent of the biblical time Pilate asked the crowd to choose between Jesus or Barabbas,” Chumley opined at the Washington Times. “Illegal-loving Gutierrez would’ve chosen the thief, as well.”
Gutierrez’s rabid anti-American radicalism is well-documented. He supports the totalitarian regime in Communist Cuba and supports the oppressive government in Venezuela.
In May, he compared convicted, unrepentant FALN terrorist Oscar Lopez Rivera, a communist whose prison term was commuted by President Obama, to George Washington.
Like all the great leaders and heroes of the struggle for the fatherland and for their nation. That is where he will be placed. Look, if this were the war for the independence of the United States, of the 13 colonies, Oscar Lopez Rivera, in the London newspapers, they would have said the same of him that they said of George Washington. Look, the struggle for independence is a struggle that every people has the right to and a responsibility, as Oscar has said, to do.
And, of course, Gutierrez was one of the immature lefty goofballs who boycotted President Trump’s inauguration and grandstanded endlessly about it. As anyone who took civics in high school knows, inauguration festivities celebrate the peaceful, democratic transfer of power, not the president himself.
