Remember: Obama Instantly Fired All of George W. Bush's Ambassadors When He Won In 2008

Linkedin Share

President Trump could’ve done what Barack Obama did and forced all serving ambassadors to submit their resignations. He didn’t do that, though.

When Barack won his first term to the White House back in November 2008, one of his first moves was to let go of all of President Bush’s ambassadors. If Trump had done that, he wouldn’t have dealt with anyone like disgraced Ukraine Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch.

Instead, 45 has found himself in a pickle. Of course, he didn’t do anything wrong and liberals know that – they just don’t care. Here’s a quick reminder for ya, via Breitbart:

Former United States ambassador Marie Yovanovitch testified Friday about her dismay upon being fired by President Donald Trump, but it’s actually quite common for presidents to do so after taking office.

The State Department issued a December 2008 notice to Bush-appointed ambassadors to submit their resignations, effective when President Barack Obama took office in 2009, according to the Washington Post.

Trump sent a tweet about Yovanovitch during her testimony and liberals were quick to claim it was “witness intimidation.” CNN’s Jake Tapper was one of those people.

Amb. Yovanovitch testifies about POTUS and his team smearing her.

During her testimony, Pres. Trump goes on twitter and attacks her.

Asked for her reaction in real time, the witness says she finds the attack intimidating.

A potential article of impeachment, right there.

Here are some reactions explaining how Trump might’ve been out of line, but really didn’t do anything wrong…

1. Trump ridiculous to attack her this am.
2. Saying she was terrible and that he had constitutional authority to fire her is not witness intimidation which is “the threatening of a crucial court witnesses by pressure or extortion to compel him/her to not to testify”

Guys, we get that you feel Orange Man Bad deep in your bones, but this is almost too silly for words. Like, listen to yourselves.

Oh Jake
This is really sad

You need to relax & pace yourself
You’ve got five more years of this

Peak stupidity has been reached.

Clown show leader Adam Schiff (D-CA) also said Trump’s tweets were “witness intimidation.”

Schiff: “We saw today witness intimidation in real time by the President of the United States.”

Texas conservative Ted Cruz wasn’t about to let Schiff get away with it.

This may be the single most ridiculous claim of the Dem show trial. No, the President’s tweeting is not “witness intimidation.” You may not like the tone of some or even many of his tweets, but it’s absurd to suggest that tweeting is an impeachable “high Crime [or] Misdemeanor.”
