|DT calls for "civil war" if he's impeached.
First, there was DT referring to six members of the House of Representatives -- two Jews and four women of color -- as "savages" on Saturday morning. This, even though they were among at least 223 House Democrats who now support an impeachment inquiry.
Can you imagine if these Do Nothing Democrat Savages, people like Nadler, Schiff, AOC Plus 3, and many more, had a Republican Party who would have done to Obama what the Do Nothings are doing to me. Oh well, maybe next time!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 28, 2019
He went so far as to suggest that one of those Jewish "savages", Rep. Adam Schiff, be arrested and charged with "treason".
Speaking of violence, the second was him threating "civil war" if he's impeached.
....If the Democrats are successful in removing the President from office (which they will never be), it will cause a Civil War like fracture in this Nation from which our Country will never heal.” Pastor Robert Jeffress, @FoxNews— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 30, 2019
In my mind, each of these adds on to the long his of impeachable or criminal offenses in their own right. And I'm not the only one.

...argued that the social media post itself is an "independent basis" for lawmakers to remove him from the White House.
This tweet is itself an independent basis for impeachment - a sitting president threatening civil war if Congress exercises its constitutionally authorized power. https://t.co/JL9XzClGXf— John Coates⚽️ (@jciv) September 30, 2019
When he calls 6 members of Congress—all women of color or Jewish—“savages,” he wants you to think of them as less than human. Like when he calls immigrants an “infestation” and says "no human being" would want to live in Baltimore. We can’t be surprised when violence follows. -- TwitterGabrielle Bruney
"Savage" has a long history as a racist term used to mark people of color as supposedly being less civilized than their white counterparts...In July, Trump called for this same group of congresswomen to "go back" to the "broken and crime infested places from which they came," despite the fact that all are American citizens and three were born in this country. -- Esquire
