Contrary to what Rosie O’Donnell believes, if Donald Trump were no longer president, Hillary Clinton wouldn’t automatically get the job and Merrick Garland wouldn’t replace Neil Gorsuch on the Supreme Court. Democrat congressman and major Trump critic Ted Lieu put it this way in an attempt to woo Republicans in joining his effort:
Dear #GOP: If Trump leaves, you get VP Pence. You can still get your stupid tax cut for the rich. But at least our nation won't be in chaos.
— Ted Lieu (@tedlieu) May 16, 2017
Even though Lieu’s message was directed at the GOP, it was a segment of The Resistance that seemed most triggered:
"The Resistance": Democrat calls on Republicans to install president who can more effectively implement Republican agenda than Trump. https://t.co/mCxIdLhwIa

How noble of you to promise that on the backs of struggling Americans. Not to mention to the benefit of you and every other Congress member. https://t.co/ssJtwn3ZVM

Clearly Dems aren't thinking this through. Either that or they're playing a dangerous game hoping GOP wont actually commence impeachment… https://t.co/oCg1slbmnW

Ted Lieu doesn't think Pence's regressive extremist ideology wouldn't cause chaos.
Ted has never tried to procure an abortion. https://t.co/vyCs7bc1oC
