Disgraced Former CNN Host Says To ‘Burn The Entire F*****g Thing Down’ If GOP Votes To Replace Ginsburg

Former CNN host Reza Aslan, who was fired over an anti-Trump rant, has taken to Twitter following the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to encourage his followers to “burn the entire f*****g thing down” if Republicans vote to replace her.

“If they even TRY to replace RBG we burn the entire f*****g thing down,” he tweeted.

Democratic lawmakers have used similarly provocative language, cryptically saying “nothing is off the table” should Republicans hold a vote on Ginsburg’s replacement.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she had different tools at her disposal, including a suggestion that she could impeach President Trump over a judicial selection. It is unclear what law he would be accused of violating.

“We have our options. We have arrows in our quiver,” she said during an ABC News interview.

“Let me be clear: if Leader McConnell and Senate Republicans move forward with this, then nothing is off the table for next year. Nothing is off the table,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said this weekend.

Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal similarly tweeted: “If Republicans recklessly & reprehensibly force a SCOTUS vote before the election—nothing is off the table.”

Many other liberals have used threatening language:

Conservatives are pushing back on their liberal counterparts, The Post Millennial reports:

Axios adds:

Furious Democrats are considering total war — profound changes to two branches of government, and even adding stars to the flag — if Republicans jam through a Supreme Court nominee, then lose control of the Senate.

On the table: Adding Supreme Court justices … eliminating the Senate’s 60-vote threshold to end filibusters … and statehood for D.C. and Puerto Rico. “If he holds a vote in 2020, we pack the court in 2021,” Rep. Joe Kennedy III (D-Mass.) tweeted.

Why it matters: Democrats are enraged by GOP hypocrisy of rushing through a new justice for President Trump after stalling President Obama’s final nominee.

  • Dems aren’t optimistic about blocking the nominee. But they have many ways of retaliating if they win Senate control — and are licking their chops about real movement on ideas that have been pushed futilely for decades.
