SHOCK VIDEO: Democrat Congressman Suggests Taking Up Arms To Resist POTUS Trump
In what is the latest instance of violent rhetoric from Democrats, Rep. Tom Suozzi (D-NY) suggested to audience members during a speech in Huntington, New York last week that they may have to bear arms to oppose President Trump.
“It’s really a matter of putting public pressure on the president,” Suozzi told the audience.
“This is where the Second Amendment comes in, quite frankly, because you know, what if the president was to ignore the courts? What would you do? What would we do?”
“What’s the Second Amendment?” one audience member then asked.
“The Second Amendment is the right to bear arms,” Suozzi replied.
In a statement to the media, Kim Devlin, an advisor to the Congressman, said his comments were taken out of context.
However, Republicans were not amused.
“This video is incredibly disturbing. It’s surreal to watch a sitting member of Congress suggest that his constituents should take up arms against the president of the United States,” Chris Martin of the National Republican Campaign Committee said.
