Donald Trump’s thinly veiled suggestions that anyone who crosses him should be punished severely or possibly executed aren’t really doing much to elevate the political discourse or restore some semblance of decorum … maybe Maxine Waters can help with that:
I'm calling on the GOP to stop Trump's filthy talk of whistleblowers being spies & using mob language implying they should be killed. Impeachment is not good enough for Trump. He needs to be imprisoned & placed in solitary confinement. But for now, impeachment is the imperative.

Normal political situation in the country where elected officials are accusing eachother of treason and asking for one or the other to be put in jail or solitary confinement. https://t.co/HgXa35OBLc

Sounds about right.
Would you consider this "mob language" https://t.co/TdY4rXmLeQ

Well, if you’re keeping score at home, remember that “mob language” is perfectly acceptable when the Left is speaking it.
Here’s another fun angle:

More from the Washington Free Beacon:
Despite her enthusiasm for putting Trump in solitary confinement, Waters has backed several bills that would drastically curtail the practice, which opponents call a form of cruel and unusual punishment. Waters was an original co-sponsor of the 2018 Jobs and Justice Act, which aimed in part to “develop and implement national standards for the use of solitary confinement to ensure that it is used infrequently and only under extreme circumstances.” She also co-sponsored Kalief’s Law in 2015, which aimed to curtail the use of solitary confinement on those below the age of 21.
