Leftists Demand Trump Removed from Power, Charged with Crimes for Greeting Fans
Left implodes after president drives past supporters outside Walter Reed Medical Center
Leftists are calling for President Donald Trump to be removed from power and charged with crimes after he took a short drive to greet his supporters who were gathered outside the Walter Reed Medical Center on Sunday.
On Sunday afternoon, President Trump temporarily left the military hospital to drive past his fans and wave through the closed vehicle window, causing left-wing figures to implode on Twitter.
The outrage mob fizzed in response, with some accusing Trump of allegedly wearing the wrong type of mask during the drive while others called for him to face criminal charges for "reckless endangerment."
The most notable hit came from far-left Washington Post blogger Jennifer Rubin, who tweeted at least 34 times about Trump taking a short drive outside of the hospital before returning.
Rubin called for the Maryland Attorney General to “indict Trump for reckless endangerment” and “assault.”
She suggested using the 25th Amendment to remove the president from office and called for him to be criminally prosecuted.
Rubin also suggested that Trump was willing to kill his supporters and that the Republican Party was not the “pro-life party.”
I would hope that if any harm comes to those agents the attorney general of MD will indict Trump for reckless endangerment, assault (yes the virus he gives off count), etc.— Jennifer 'Vote Early' Rubin (@JRubinBlogger) October 4, 2020
Rubin suggested that Trump needed to be immediately removed from power through the 25th Amendment and claimed that the GOP was a “death cult” and not a “pro-life party.”
I would suggest covid has already impaired his judgment so he is a risk to others. 25th Amendment, anyone?— Jennifer 'Vote Early' Rubin (@JRubinBlogger) October 4, 2020
next question to Pence: intentionally risking the lives of others for personal gratification sounds like the actions of someone not in his right mind. When do you go to the Cabinet to activate the 25th A?— Jennifer 'Vote Early' Rubin (@JRubinBlogger) October 4, 2020
The GOP is a death cult. There is only one pro-life party and it's not them— Jennifer 'Vote Early' Rubin (@JRubinBlogger) October 4, 2020
Rubin also claimed that Trump was willing to “infect his supporters,” even though the windows were not rolled down in the SUV that was carrying the president.
He is in the hospital for covid and he wants to infect his supporters??!???!?— Jennifer 'Vote Early' Rubin (@JRubinBlogger) October 4, 2020
CBS News reporter David Begnaud complained that Trump appeared to not wear the correct type of mask.
“The president who is infected with coronavirus, doesn’t appear to be wearing a medical grade mask, there’s a secret service agent in front of him is [sic],” Begnaud wrote.
“The president looks to be wearing a cloth mask similarity [sic] to the one he has occasionally been seen wearing.”

A reporter for Vice News claimed that a Secret Service agent told her that Trump’s actions were “so reckless and careless and heartless.”

The White House Correspondents’ Association also complained on Sunday afternoon that journalists were not invited on President Trump’s short drive, calling it “outrageous.”
The group's president, Zeke Miller, who is a reporter for the Associated Press, issued the following statement:
It is outrageous for the president to have left the hospital — even briefly — amid a health crisis without a protective pool present to ensure that the American people know where their president is and how he is doing.
Now more than ever, the American public deserves independent coverage of the president so they can be reliably informed about his health.
White House physician Sean Conley, D.O., gave additional details on Sunday about Trump’s overall health condition, saying:
Since we spoke last, the president has continued to improve.
As with any illness, there are frequent ups and downs over the course, particularly when a patient is being so closely watched 24 hours a day.
We review and debate every finding, compare it to existing science and literature, weighing the risks and benefits of every intervention, its timing, as well as any potential impacts a delay may have.
Over the course of his illness, the president has experienced two episodes of transient drops in his oxygen saturation.
We debated the reasons for this and whether we’d even intervene.
It was the determination of the team, based predominantly on the timeline from the initial diagnosis, that we initiate Dexamethasone.
I’d like to take this opportunity now, given some speculation over the course of the illness the last couple of days, [to] update you on the course of his own illness.
Thursday night into Friday morning, when I left the bedside, the president was doing well with only mild symptoms, and his oxygen was in the high nineties.
Late Friday morning, when I returned to the bedside, [the] president had a high fever and his oxygen saturation was transiently dipping below 94%.
Given these two developments, I was concerned for possible rapid progression of the illness.
I recommended the president we try some supplemental oxygen, see how he’d respond.
He was fairly adamant that he didn’t need it. He was not short of breath.
He was tired, had the fever. That was about it.
After about a minute [on] only two liters, his saturation levels were back over 95%.
Stayed on that for about an hour, maybe, and it was off and gone.
Later that day, by the time the team here was at the bedside, [the] president had been up out of bed, moving about the residence with only mild symptoms.
Despite this, everyone agreed the best course of action was to move to Walter Reed for more thorough evaluation and monitoring.
