I’m just a plainspoken Colorado criminal defense lawyer, but the way I see it…
I recently heard the new Republican President describe himself, with the degree of humility to which he if not the nation has grown accustomed, as the most Presidential of heads of state in history, with the possible exception of Abraham Lincoln.
And so it was heartening to read these words of Lincoln, possibly even more Presidential than his party successor, urging the electorate to give him four more years in the midst of civil war:
While the people retain their virtue, and vigilance, no administration, by any extreme of wickedness or folly, can very seriously injure the government, in the short space of four years.
So how bad can it be when the leader of the Free World labels the media — specifically the New York Times, NBC News, ABC, CBS, and CNN (isolating those fakes from their more distinguished brethren Breitbart News and Alex Jones) — the enemy of the American people.
You know what we do with the enemies of the American people.
Maybe one, or two, reporters will be assassinated as a direct result of criminal incitement to violence by the President of the United States. Half a dozen, tops.
