DT calls for "civil war" if he's impeached. 
I usually try and limit myself to only one hair-brained or fascist quote from Trump per week. But this weekend, there were two that creeped me out badly enough to warrant a second look.

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.

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.

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.

Harvard Law professor John Coates
...argued that the social media post itself is an "independent basis" for lawmakers to remove him from the White House.

Beto O'Rourke
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. -- Twitter
Gabrielle 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
