This is hilarious and horrifying all in one fell swoop. Democrat Rep. Jim Himes (CT), who sits on the House Intel Committee, stated during an interview last week on CNN that his “lizard brain” wants to see “bad things” happen to President Trump. Conservatives were left rolling in the aisles over that one and the jabs and memes just keep on coming.
“Let me press you, Congressman,” CNN’s Wolf Blitzer said. “Do you want to see the President of the United States in jail?”
“More than anything else, Wolf, I don’t — this isn’t about my feelings or about retribution,” Himes responded. “The lizard brain that I have says I hope bad things happen to this man because he has been so destructive to our republic, to the concept of democracy, to the concept that, internationally, we are a light unto the nations.”
“So yes, I have my emotional reactions but, look, we’re a nation that is of a rule of — we are a nation of laws,” Himes continued. “So what I really hope — and this is me personally speaking — what I really hope is that if impeachment is not a mechanism of accountability — and I will tell you flat out that I can’t imagine anything happening, anything at all happening that would cause the Senate to convict and, therefore, remove this president — so impeachment stops in the House, in my opinion, my real hope is, that in 2020, the American voters look into their hearts, think about the generation that we’ve been celebrating today, who, as young men, decided that they would give their lives for this country.”
He also added: “Wolf, look, you know, probably 30-to-40% of the American public wants to see this president in prison. I think what Nancy Pelosi is saying, first of all, I think she’s channeling the emotions of a lot of people who are very emotional, who look at the behavior of this president, the constant lying, the use of tariffs against our best allies and biggest trading partners. You know, the attacks on the media.”
I think Himes is confused… Obama is the one that the American public really wants to see in prison.
‘Lizard brain’ refers to the psychiatry term ‘reptilian brain’. It refers to the most primitive part of our brain, where the instincts that warn us of danger when it lurks allegedly reside. Wolf Blitzer went on to press Himes on the subject in response to a Politico report that stated that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wanted to see the president in prison. Thus, Trump labeled her appropriately ‘Nervous Nancy’.
“I ask the question, Congressman, not only because of what Nancy Pelosi told her fellow Democrats in the House about preferring to see him in prison rather than being impeached — because Democrats have heavily criticized President Trump for himself talking about jailing his own political opponents,” Blitzer said. “He’s raised the possibility of their committing treason. Former senior officials in the Justice Department, the intelligence community, the FBI. So what she has just said and what you’re now saying, is that any different when you’re suggesting maybe the president belongs in jail?”
“It is. When the president of the United States, the leader of the country says something, it is different than when even a member of Congress says something,” Himes responded. “The president commands the most powerful apparatus in human history. That’s the executive branch of the government with the military, with the FBI, et cetera. He commands the most powerful institution that human beings have ever seen. So, yes, what the president — and by the way, he speaks for the country. I don’t speak for the country. If I’m lucky, I speak for just more than half of my constituents.”
Pray tell… exactly what are those bad things that ‘lizard brain’ Himes wants to happen to Trump? Asking for a friend. As Chicks on the Right point out, the lizard brains, er Democrats, are losing their minds and fast. Looks like the cold-blooded lizard brains are out for revenge.
