CA Rep. Ted Lieu Proves What ‘Political Rhetoric’ Is In Anti-Trump Tweets

Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) is a “political star” to some and perhaps in his own mind as well. Tweeting anti-President Trump tweets or “trolling the Tweeter in Chief” may be what he believes are some of his greatest accomplishments.

It appears that Lieu has made it his “job” to out-tweet President Donald Trump when he isn’t wooing comedians like the caustic Kathy Griffin who swooned over Lieu at a recent Creative Artists Agency event in March.

Lieu was speaking at the CAA Foundation’s Take Action Day in addition to looking for a Hollywood breakout agent of his own among the agents in attendance?

Reportedly, Griffin approached Lieu after his speech and said:

“I saw you on the Joy Reid show on MSNBC. You’re giving us hope!”

Lieu may have been the inspiration that led Griffin to tweet her “severed head” “masterpiece.” You just never know.

Lieu began his Twitter “assault” earlier this year against Trump after licking his wounds over a Hillary Clinton loss.

Lieu’s past tweets are illustrative of the type of “political rhetoric” that Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Ill.) was speaking of following the recent Alexandria shooting, in which a man opened fire on GOP Congressmen who were practicing for a charity event.

Davis explained that it was “political rhetoric” and “political divide” that may have led to the shooting.

Davis said:

“This political rhetoric and political discourse that has led to hate, has led to gunfire, this has got to stop and it’s got to stop today.”

Some of the Tweets Lieu aimed at Trump and his administration earlier this year can certainly be described as “political rhetoric.”:

“”President” @realDonaldTrump: You truly are an evil man. Your job is to help Americans. Not intentionally try to destroy their lives.”

“I love #irony. Dr. Evil, aka Steve Bannon, is under criminal investigation for voter registration fraud.”

It should be noted that Lieu pursues political avenues as well “to troll” Trump.

In May, Lieu introduced the H.R. 2414 known as the “Stop Waste And Misuse by the President Act of 2017” or the SWAMP Act of 2017.

The bill seeks reimbursement as follows:

“The proposed 2017 Federal spending bill includes reimbursements for millions of dollars spent by Florida and New York to protect the President and First Family, and facilitate their travel. While localities should be reimbursed, the taxpayer should not be responsible for said reimbursement.”

Essentially, Lieu doesn’t want Trump or the First Lady protected by the Secret Service at taxpayer expense if they visit their home in Florida, Trump Tower or any place in which Trump has a financial interest.

Presently, Lieu has turned his political rhetoric to “obstruction of justice” charges that The Washington Post claims special counsel Mueller is pursing against Trump. However, as is typical of WaPo, they offer nothing more than “officials” or “anonymous sources” to support their claims.

Without referring to any of his tweets as “allegations,” Lieu seemingly wants to convince the public that his tweets are legally and factually based? Opinion is not fact, Mr. Lieu.

Lieu tweets:

“@Potus obstructed justice when he -Fired Comey -Confessed on TV -Confessed again to Russians. Testimony of Comey is just icing on the cake.”

Lieu misconstrues U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ testimony before the Senate when he says, “Now we know why #Sessions stonewalled yesterday. Depending on his actual role & intent in Comey firing, he may also have obstructed justice.”

Lieu lumped everyone in Trump’s administration together by saying, “Anyone in @realDonaldTrump Administration who now attempts to influence Mueller’s investigation of @POTUS can also be guilty of obstruction.”

He then went on to level accusations against the man who appointed Mueller. Lieu said, “Depending on Dep AG Rosenstein’s state of mind at the time of the Comey firing, he could also be guilty of #ObstructionOfJustice.”

Next he returned his focus to Sessions. “#Sessions contradictory testimony before Congress opens him up to possible Obstruction of Justice for Comey firing.”

But before he finished, Lieu pointed his finger at “anyone in the White House” and indicated they could be guilty of  “obstruction of justice.” He said, “Anyone in White House who helped @realDonaldTrump obstruct justice could also be guilty of obstruction depending on their intent.”

Don’t forget this is the same Rep. Ted Lieu that wanted to introduce a bill to put a psychiatrist in the White House after the election because “Dr.” Lieu felt it was warranted for Trump.

It’s obvious by his tweeting and “attention-seeking” bills that Lieu has far too much time on his hands.
