Rep. Steve Cohen: Nancy Pelosi Needs to do the ‘Patriotic’ Thing and Impeach Trump

Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) told CNN’s ‘Newsroom’ on Thursday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi needs to do the “patriotic” thing and impeach President Trump.

Cohen, who’s well-known for using ridiculous hyperbole to make his points, added that the President was acting like a “reckless gangster” and insinuated removing him from office would be “a heavenly cause.”

That’s right, the party of infanticide and radical anti-American politics wants you to believe that their resistance cause is one backed by patriotism and God.

Battling Pelosi

Discussion of impeachment during his CNN interview hinged on an earlier closed-door exchange Cohen had with Pelosi, in which the California Democrat denied accusations that she would not pursue action against the President for political reasons.

“This isn’t about politics at all,” Pelosi told the fringe members of her party demanding action. “It’s about patriotism.”

“She needs to do what’s right,” Cohen fired back during Thursday’s segment. “She says that she’s doing this because of patriotism, not politics. It’s hard to see that. I mean, patriotism would say jump into hell for a heavenly cause.”

Now let’s cover abortion with your ‘heavenly cause’ BS.

Cohen pressed further, challenging Pelosi to impeach the President – for America!

“You have a Constitution, and you have a rule of law, and it’s being destroyed in a reckless gangster manner, you need to act,” he claimed. “I think … the only reason not to act is because of politics.”

Pelosi Not Patriotic

Host Poppy Harlow, surprised, said “It sounds like you’re saying House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is not being patriotic. Is that right?”

“No, not necessarily,” he responded after clearly stating that he was, necessarily.

“You’re saying she’s putting politics above patriotism in this instance?” Harlow pressed further.

Cohen replied, “I hate to get into it with Nancy. Nancy and I have a great relationship, and I’m not going to spoil that.”

Crikey – in accusing her of hiding behind politics he’s practically saying she’s acting like, well … a chicken. Get that man a bucket of chicken!

Cohen’s Reckless Gangster Rhetoric

The Representative from Tennessee has a long history of being reckless with his words, a misunderstanding with what they mean that would make Ilhan Omar blush.

Earlier this week, Cohen incorrectly stated that former President Bill Clinton faced impeachment proceedings “over sex” while President Trump is “raping the country.”

Cohen introduced articles of impeachment in 2017 over the President’s reaction to violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, which has been proven to be a media-generated hoax.

Lying doesn’t seem to be a very heavenly cause, Mr. Cohen. And claiming the President of the United States is “raping the country” doesn’t seem very patriotic.

Censuring you for being perpetually loose with your words and accusations though, might be. Come on, Nancy, do the patriotic thing and shut this man down.

  • What does being Jewish have to do with it or even being in the South (Cohen was born in Memphis)? Would you make the same comment about an Episcopal or Methodist? That was a very bigoted statement that wasn't needed! Memphis has always been strongly Democrat as Steve was preceded by Harold Ford, Jr. who followed his father who took the seat when the District was created in 1983. I do NOT like or agree with Cohen and find many of his statements reprehensible, such as wish Senator Marsha Blackburn (R - TN) would jump off a bridge.

  • Ironic, a jew politician in the south. Although Tennessee is highly conservative, the big cities like Memphis and Nashville are infected with Liberalism, mostly due to relocating leftists who destroyed "their" states (Ca and NY specifically) and are now moving to Tennessee to pollute that state. The "natives" hate them.

  • Why haven't the republicans offered impeachment of Rep.Steven Cohen for his actions and being stupid. But we know the ball-less republicans in the house of representatives will do nothing but sit on their thumbs and complain.

  • All of theses thugs are guilty of treason per the constitution he says he wants Pelosi to use. They should all be charged with treason.

  • What a bunch of buffoons! They're like a pack of mad dogs that won't let go of Trump's leg. Trump 2020!!!!

  • The demonazis are in full cover up mode. Now let's demand their financial records and 10 years of tax returns. Especially from Schiff, Nadler, and Gatormouth Waters.

  • Thank you, America. For the last 2 decades I have been cringing every time one of our politicians opens his/ her mouth. But they appear positively normal when compared to some of your little beauties, mostly your Democrats.
