Who knew? When people were literally rioting the day after the election results came in in 2016 and political pundits were on cable news tearing up, we’d have thought MSNBC’s Chris Hayes would have called for President Trump to resign at least once already, either over colluding with Russia or his quid pro quo deal with Ukraine’s president or threatening North Korea with fire and fury or any random tweet that caused liberals to clutch their pearls. We’ve literally lost track of how many times Rep. Al Green has introduced articles of impeachment.
But it appears Hayes has been a steady rudder throughout the Trump presidency. He didn’t have any special shows where he threatened to blow the lid off Trump’s tax returns like colleague Rachel Maddow, and we haven’t seen him have a self-righteous meltdown like CNN’s Don Lemon.
But if CNN’s Brian Stelter is to be believed, and we can’t be sure because we know he watches only Fox News, this is the first time Hayes has called for Trump to step down.
… @chrislhayes: “he is not going to get good at this. he is not going to change. he has failed, definitively. and it is an urgent matter of public health, of public safety at this moment, for the president, donald trump, to resign.”#inners pic.twitter.com/Hu6MHnAZvs

“Virus continues to rage amid Trump failure” … and now an interview with the Luv Guv, Andrew Cuomo! Ladies, he’s single!

Why, did Trump steal his bike?

I am really happy for you Brian

If Chris Hayes calls for Trump to resign while Tucker Carlson’s on over at Fox News, does Hayes make a sound?

Shook tater. Shook.

This is the first time I have explicitly called for @chrislhayes to resign

Profiles in courage. So bold. So brave. Reminds me of that historic day when Maddow said it was finally time to impeach George W. Bush.
— The O Line (@facetwitch) June 27, 2020
Yeah, this will certainly force @realdonaldtrump to quit.

But he did call for Biden to resign so Sanders could get the nomination much earlier.

Somebody tell Chris we have elections for this.

We’re sure Trump will take it into consideration now that Hayes has come out and said it on MSNBC.
Bill Kristol and Chris Hayes share similar fantasies of what will happen with President Trump this weekend https://t.co/VSi019uqWc
