Brian Stelter, CNN's #FatJoker, Discusses Important Topic of Dreaming About a "Soft Coup" to Force Trump from Office

His only concern is that some foreigners might see this as some sort of "soft coup."

RIAN STELTER: In discussions among friends and families, and debates on social media, people are questioning the president’s fitness. But these questions are happening in newsrooms and TV studios as well. Usually after the microphones are off, after the stories are filed, after the paper’s been put to bed, people’s concerns, and fears, and questions come out.

. . .

Is the President of the United States a racist? Is he suffering from some kind of illness? Is he fit for office? [long dramatic pause] And if he’s unfit, then what?

. . .

Is it time for objective journalists, and I don’t mean opinion folks, I mean down-the-middle journalists [like the ones at CNN?] to address these questions head on?

. . .

. . .

STELTER: Isn't that the biggest story in the world right now?

ALICE STEWART: It is a legitimate story to cover; it is a legitimate question to be asked . . . There have been questions about the 25th Amendment to the Constitution, whether or not he should be removed for medical reasons.

. . .

DOUGLAS BRINKLEY: Senator Corker is a real leader among Republicans, and it was very brave of him to step out, and really talk about the fact that we have an incompetent president, and what does that mean for our country?

. . .

On the medical front, we all know he is a neon billboard for overt narcissism, malignant self-love. We've all known that. Now we're seeing, we’re getting the ramifications as a nation of what having a sick man in the White House means.

. . .

We’re at the state now where the five generals of the Joint Chiefs of Staff have to go out and enter politics and say we want nothing to do with what the president is saying. It is a crisis going on in the White House, and it’s about Donald Trump’s fitness for command.

. . .


If we are dependent on the military leaders in this country, four or five of them, to protect us from the President of the United States, then that too is a story. And part of that story is, is it time then for the president to be urged to leave office by those in his party and perhaps those same military leaders?

STELTER: Some foreign correspondents, writing about the United States from other countries, would bring up the word “coup, soft coup!” with all this talk of military leaders intervening.

As @TheCableGamer points out, Jesse Waters was relentlessly mocked and criticized for warning of the possibility of a coup.

Here's a NeverTrumper, and at least an honorary member of the #SalonHot25, calling such talk "propaganda:"

But here's #FatJoker and his gang of retards not warning of a coup, but sketching out plans for a coup. Will #FatJoker be criticized as well?

Doubt it!

See, coup-talk is only permitted if you're in favor of it.

If you're not in favor of a coup, then you're a crazy nutter conspiracist for talking against a coup.

If you're talking a coup up, you're just a #ResponsibleJournalistWhoCares.
