HISTORY REDUX: KANSAS CITY CAUGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF UPCOMING PREZ TRUMP 'CIVIL WAR' OVER IMPEACHMENT?!?!?
This morning the chattering class across the nation is in a tizzy and mad enough to punch a horse over Prez Trump's latest Twitter barrage.
Vice: In one of his 40-odd tweets of the day, he warned of "Civil War-like fracture" if he's impeached, quoting a Southern Baptist preacher with a history of anti-Semitic and anti-Islam remarks.
AP: GOP congressman blasts as ‘repugnant’ Trump civil war tweet
Newsweek: TRUMP'S 'CIVIL WAR' QUOTE TWEET IS ACTUALLY GROUNDS FOR IMPEACHMENT, SAYS HARVARD LAW PROFESSOR
Reason: Trump's Civil War Tweet Is Bad. This Other Tweet May Be Unconstitutional.
Splinter: Donald Trump Is Keeping the Impeachment Discourse Completely and Totally Civil
KANSAS CITY DEMOCRATIC PARTY HERO JASON KANDER CONDEMNS PREZ TRUMP TWEET IN NO UNCERTAIN TERMS!!!
And so . . .
Given that the Battle Of Westport was a decisive engagement in the conflict, we ask mid-morning readers . . .
IS KANSAS CITY CAUGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF UPCOMING PREZ TRUMP CIVIL WAR???
The rising tide of JoCo Dems & Lawrence progressives constantly remind us that Kansas was a Free State and actually quite progressive for the time despite current rural Republican leanings. Meanwhile, Missouri's history was far less "liberated" even if STL & KC are urban core Democratic Machine strongholds.
And so there's a great deal of baggage, history and politics to unpack as we're now starting to get a glimpse at the war-like partisan tone of the 2020 election campaign.
You decide . . .
