ABC News Political Director Calls For Cleansing Of Trump Voters

 

 

 

ABC News Political Director Rick Klein called for the “cleansing” of Trump supporters Thursday following the Capitol Hill chaos, which featured the president’s loyal followers storming the complex.

“Trump will be an ex-president in 13 days. The fact is that getting rid of Trump is the easy part,” Klein wrote in a since-deleted post on Twitter, which already banned the president for 12 hours after the riots and teed up a permanent suspension. “Cleansing the movement he commands is going to be something else.”

 

 

Klein’s calls for cleansing are reminiscent of leftist demands to reprimand the 74 million Americans who voted for the president in the November election last year.

Former Pete Buttigieg staffer and Obama campaign spokesman Hari Sevugan responded to New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s request for GOP punishment by touting the “Trump Accountability Project,” creating lists “to make sure anyone who took a paycheck to help Trump undermine America is held responsible for what they did.”

 

 

 

The calls for widespread punishment have only undermined Democrats’ claims that they are promoting unity, exposing their lip service to a deeply divided nation.

The destruction Wednesday on Capitol Hill, where thousands of Trump supporters flooded congressional hallways in a day of unrest that claimed the lives of four people, came as a symptom of the nation’s ills. Blaming the 74 million Americans for provoking the insurrection reveals a profound misunderstanding of the events that traumatized a scarred nation still recovering from the near-dystopian nightmares of the last 12 months.
