Once again today, President Trump tweeted out this:
WITCH HUNT!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 13, 2018
It drives the idiots from the ResistanceLOL crazy when he does that.
One of the most common “arguments” used to “prove” the President wrong can be summed up like this:
Definitely not a witch hunt… pic.twitter.com/5YF76G5Z3E— Neal Simon (@nealjsimon) December 13, 2018
Oh, I see. Since people have be indicted, charged or imprisoned, it isn’t a witch hunt. Good work there, genius.
You’d have to be completely ignorant of history to think this “proves” the President is wrong.
Spoiler alert: It doesn’t.
I guess big-brains like this Neal Simon never heard of the Salem Witch Trials.
Which is odd since the etymology of the term itself can be traced back to what happened in Salem in the late seventeenth century.
More than two hundred people were accused of practicing witch craft between 1692 and 1693. Twenty people were found guilty and executed for the crime while another five died behind bars.
However, if we go by the ResistanceLOL’s own go-to argument, what happened in Salem in the seventeenth century can in no way be a witch hunt since, you know, witches were arrested, found guilty and executed.
But that’s part of what makes it a witch hunt. Lives were ruined by false accusations. People who did nothing wrong were arrested, tried, jailed and even executed.
That’s kind of the point in calling it a witch hunt.
Sheesh the work.
Yet these geniuses actually think it can only be a witch hunt if nobody is ever arrested, indicted or punished.
Because, they’re kinda dumb.
What do we call a Witch Hunt that actually leads us to witches?— Josh Campbell (@joshscampbell) July 13, 2018
Um. We call that a “witch hunt,” little brain.
Believe it or not, this Josh Campbell is a former FBI agent and now-member of CNN’s “national security team.”
Actually, he also worked directly for James Comey. So he’s a sort of a chip off the old block.
Well, in Salem Witch Hunt 200 people were accused, 20 were executed, 5 died in prison. As you well know, “witch hunt” refers not to finding bad Russians but to media/intel campaign of suggesting Trump is a “Salem witch” who treasonously colluded with Russians to steal election. https://t.co/JycAzCMh6B— Mollie (@MZHemingway) July 13, 2018
From now on when you see some little brain share the list of people indicted or jailed to “prove” this farce isn’t a witch hunt, feel free to share this image right back at them.
