As Twitchy reported Monday, a handful of Democratic mayors, led by Portland’s Ted Wheeler, wrote a letter to Congress calling for the immediate removal of federal agents from their cities and an investigation of their “unconstitutional terror tactics” — like trying to stop a mob that’s been trying for more than 50 nights to break into and burn down the federal courthouse in Portland.
MSNBC national affairs analyst John Heileman suggested that what President Trump is actually doing by threatening to send in “paramilitary units” is a “trial run” for trying to steal the election through force or intimidation.

Unbelievable. What does he think the burning down of the courthouse in Portland is a trial run for? Heileman doesn’t seem at all concerned with why Trump would send in the feds to quell a weeks-long riot intent on destroying federal property.

They love to make up things they think trump will do, then get outraged and have panels and lots of air time about said made up ‘what if’ scenario. It’s an @MSNBC specialty.

This guy is an idiot. With an idiot following. Just read through a bunch of MSNBC posts from a couple of years ago on the Steele dossier. These people should be held accountable for their idiocracy.

You’re ridiculous. Marxist/Communists looking to destabilize local, state and federal governments using violence. We pay taxes for defense and protections. You sure know how to turn things upside down just like a good Alinsky-ite.

This kind of propagandizing and fear-mongering is repulsive.

He's either nuts, terribly ignorant, malicious or just looking to make scintillating news. He knows better than what he's putting out for the dumbos.

They've been rioting in Portland for almost 2 months.
This guy is faker (or dumber) than that bowl of (fake) fruit behind them.

This is such crap! This opinion is offered through the Orange Man Bad lens rather than from the perspective that 99% of Americans want to see the lawless destruction and rioting stopped. Mayors don't have the political will for it. It appears that the President does.

Hey @jheil, we are way out ahead of you because the Antifa & BLM thugs causing all the problems are being PAID to disrupt and cause fear and to “steal the election”. America WILL NOT FALL FOR IT, SHUT THEM DOWN! Nothing peaceful about them!

Heileman really ought to put his money where his mouth is and join up with the anarchists in Portland to drive out Trump’s paramilitary force.
