Frederick Douglass's descendants speak on this 4th of July

A Mafia boss.

Trump is allegedly heard on tape asking Giuliani's thugs, Parnas and Fruman (neither of whom are part of Trump's cabinet or administration), to "TAKE HER OUT! GET RID OF HER!"  "Her" refers to US Ambassador to the Ukraine, Marie Yovanovich, because she was fighting corruption and Trump and his goons were trying to promote it by bribing Ukraine's president into providing dirt on Trump's political rival.

"TAKE HER OUT!"  is classic Mafia-speak when asking underlings to get rid of someone.

Why would Trump ask Parnas and Fruman to get rid of Yovanovich when they have no such authority within his administration. The POTUS can fire any ambassador he wants. Why did he scream "TAKE HER OUT!" at two shady men who were NOT part of the State Department or part of the Trump Administration?

Do any Trump cultists care? Or do they think this is normal behavior by a POTUS?

ABC: Recording apparently captures Trump discussing Yovanovitch ouster with Parnas, Fruman

"Newly surfaced audio appears to capture President Trump telling associates he wanted then-U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch fired during a private April 2018 dinner, ABC News reported Friday. 

 As described by ABC, the recording appears to capture Trump speaking about Yovanovitch to Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, former associates of the president’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C. 

 'The biggest problem there, I think where we need to start is we need to get rid of the ambassador,' a voice appearing to be Parnas's says. 'She's still left over from the Clinton administration."

 'Get rid of her!' a voice that appears to be Trump's responds. 'Get her out tomorrow. I don't care. Get her out tomorrow. Take her out. OK? Do it.' "

The majority of Americans can see beyond the Orange child's playground. He is a bully & a sad little kid who cares only about himself. He is so BELOW the dignity of the office of President. We will get through this through voting him out!

If he just wanted her to leave her job, one would think he has heard of the term "You're Fired"!

Howard Exactly right. Trump is within his right to dismiss any ambassador. Instead he told a couple of thugs to "Take her out!" Those two thugs, Parnas and Fruman, are NOT a part of the administration and have no authority to "Take her out!"

No Trumper can answer the question: "Why did Trump ask goons to "Take her out!" when he had the power to say "You're fired!" and remove her from office.

No honest Trumper can answer that.

Or, "Thank you for your service but your services are no longer needed. Please have your resignation on my desk tomorrow morning. Thank you in advance."

RN That's what a normal POTUS would have done. Trump is an aberration and anything but normal. He's our first Crime Boss of the US.

And hopefully our last.

BlueBull It makes one wonder why the Republican Party admires a bully, a cheat, a liar, and a fraud. Could it be he's a reflection of what they've become?

BlueBull said...

Yes, that's exactly what it is, imo. Democrats are interested in expanding rights, Repibliscumbags are only interested in taking them away, unless it's their beloved 2nd, then they're demanding that every newborn be handed a rifle as soon as it slips out of the birth canal.
