Former Barack Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch is under fire for appearing to call for more violence in order to stop President Trump.
In a call to action, Lynch posted the video titled “Never Been Easy,” on behalf of the U.S. Senate Democrats. It appeared on their Facebook page over the weekend. She makes a rather cryptic message that discusses death and bleeding on the streets.
“Ordinary people who simply saw what needed to be done… they’ve marched, they’ve bled, yes, some of them have died … We have done this before we can do this again,” Lynch said.
It seems to be a bit much. Can you imagine a Republican saying this about Barack Obama? The backlash would be merciless.
Here is her full statement.
“I know that this is a time of great fear and uncertainty for so many people. I know it’s a time of concern for people, who see our rights being assailed, being trampled on and even being rolled back. I know that this is difficult, but I remind you that this has never been easy. We have always had to work to move this country forward to achieve the great ideals of our Founding Fathers.
“It has been people, individuals who have banded together, ordinary people who simply saw what needed to be done and came together and supported those ideals who have made the difference. They’ve marched, they’ve bled and yes, some of them died. This is hard. Every good thing is. We have done this before. We can do this again.”
Of course, Twitter has had a field day:
