Left-wing comedian Chelsea Handler reached a new low on Friday when she called on Trump’s closest military advisers to “remove him” from the Oval Office, warning the President’s inner-circle that their names will “appear negatively in history.”
The liberal activist made her public call for a coup d’état on social media, saying those generals closest to the “idiot-in-chief” have an obligation to overthrow the duly elected American President.
To all the generals surrounding our idiot-in-chief...the longer U wait to remove him, the longer UR name will appear negatively in history.— Chelsea Handler (@chelseahandler) August 11, 2017
The backlash on twitter was immediate, with users slamming Handler for promoting a military takeover of the United States government.
Some users even referred to her comments as "treasonous."
Calling for a Military Coup is not only misguided it's dangerous.— nic w (@portersure) August 11, 2017
Handler's tweet comes on the heels of the escalating crisis between North Korea and the United States, as President Trump huddles with his senior military advisers to counteract Kim Jong Un's nuclear threat.
