Wacky Weld Says Trump Should Be Hung for Treason

The facts involving the alleged misconduct of President Trump during a call to the President of Ukraine remain undisclosed. However, that has not stopped his opponents from attacking the President, and at least one of them suggesting that he should be hung for treason. Those were the words of longshot 2020 GOP primary candidate Bill Weld.

During an appearance on MSNBC, the former Massachusetts Governor said, “Talk about pressuring a foreign country to interfere with and control a U.S. election. It couldn’t be clearer, and that’s not just undermining democratic institutions. That is treason. It’s treason, pure and simple, and the penalty for treason under the U.S. code is death. That’s the only penalty.”

He added, “The penalty under the Constitution is removal from office, and that might look like a pretty good alternative to the president if he could work out a plea deal.”

Weld went on with his morbid diatribe, “The only penalty for treason is death. It’s spelled out in the statute. Under the Constitution, as you know, grounds for removal from office … are treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors,” he said. “We don’t have to worry about bribery anymore, although I think he’s committed that. We don’t have to worry about other high crimes and misdemeanors, although I think he’s committed many. He’s such a lawless man. We’ve got treason, and we don’t have to dribble around the court. We can go right for the hoop.”

“It’s well past time for this guy,” Weld concluded, “to be carted off to save us all.”

Despite the disturbing words of “Wacky Weld,” let’s be clear, no one – not one single person – outside the Trump and Zelenskiy administrations knows exactly what was said on the phone call in question.

We do not know if there is anything that amounts to criminal conduct or whether it was merely inappropriate. We simply do not have enough information right now to be throwing around words like “treason,” let alone daydream out loud about Trump being executed for “high crimes and misdemeanors.”

This could be a major debacle for Trump, it could be an even greater scandal for the Biden family, or it could amount to yet another left-winger nothing burger. So, Mr. Weld, I’d hold off on building that gallows just yet.

    Mr. Weld, If you want to hang someone for treason there are many candidates. First and foremost is Jane Fonda aka: Hanoi Jane, then follows Bill Kerry, the Clinton’s and Nancy Pelosi and the Team 4. Thank you.

    I’m basically for free speech but liberals have come to a point of so much unreasonable “hate”, that something has to be done to curtail this ridiculous, extreme dialogue. We should pass legislation that makes it a crime for ANYBODY to suggest or promote violence against a head of state.

    This Weld appears to be a wacko as the Democrats. Some of the Democrats and United State Attorneys have found out nothing wrong with what Trump did. interfering in an election / the 3 Democrat representatives that wrote the letters tot he Ukraine Government should face impeachment and disbarred if they are attorneys. The Democrats have been trying to remove Trump since he was elected, even if this does not work out they will try to find another way. My Hope is that Trump is cleared and wins the next election and the Democrats will still be trying to get rid if him because they are tryin to hide something. Weld sounds like a RINO and is probably working with the Democrats

    Shouldn’t Mental Illness disqualify that Moron from running for President of this USA? Seriously? Calling for our President to be hung?!?!?!!! If anyone has deserved that fate it’s one who already had that position & is going down in History as the Worst President in History. The other one tried but failed to get elected.

    Last night & earlier today, I was online reading several news stories & listening to lots of talk about the whole Impeachment debacle. I was happy to see dozens of comments from people admitting they were Democrats & hadn’t voted for Trump but now that the Democratic Party had shown their true colors, they want nothing to do with them. Many wrote about the “New direction” the Party is going; Socialism, killing babies & selling them piece by piece for profit, as truly evil etc. I also saw numerous Comments asking President Trump to, “Please come to California. We need help. The Democratic Party is destroying this State.”
    Bottom line here is, they’re wanting to Impeach President Trump because they know they can’t beat him. They’re in panic mode.

    No President has ever done as much for America/Americans as President Trump has & he continues to do just that.

    God Bless America & keep our President, Vice President, their families & their Administration safe & well & guide them in all they do. Amen.

    I believe the term “Traitors” should be reserved for the Democratic Congress and you, along with your recommended punishment.
    Just one of your traitors acts include “aiding and abeding illigals to violate US laws.” The list goes on and on. If you and your traidors would have got on the wagon with Trump, instead of asking like 3 year olds that just got your “Pasifiers” taken away, we would have accomplishments beyond our dreams. You have all demonstrated your adolescents and overall stupidity.
    Prison time is the only justifiable sentence for you and your traitors.

    its very disturbing, that hillary clinton and her group still have not excepted the lost in 2016, usually you would move on, and support the President. In this case you have to question the WHY?….apparently there has been more reasons than one to point to a crime wave of the group.
    It’s just that what I have uncovered points in the direction of a money trail that lead me straight back to hillary.
    The actions of a person tells a lot about them. That’s why my suspicions went through the roof.
    I referred to hillary’s group because I don’t see them as a political party. I see them as a company that has lost a large amount of money, plain and simple.
    What’s evenly disturbing is that it’s all out for the public to see.

I’VE been around through the big depression, WWII, and all these radical protesters and President Ronald Trump is by far the best American President this country has ever had . President Trump stands up for A
    LL Americans and has accomplished more in 3 years than all the past Presidents during their term in office.

    Let’s take the House back in 2020 and strengthen the Senate

    This reminds me of what I know about the Salem Witch Hunts. Children who recognized power and perhaps vengeance against women who they didn’t like. If they accused them of witchcraft, so-called sane and sensible folks took it seriously. I believe the “trial” at least in some cases was to throw the accused into a body of water,with hands tied?, but in any case few if any women knew how to swim and were dressed in many layers of clothing. The test was if they saved themselves, they were declared innocent and if they drowned, they were of course guilty!!! I have read in recent years that later folks recognized how absurd and cruel this was and actually paid some “reparations”!

    The Democrats might as well get used to it that there’s five more years of President Trump. And yes Weld is a democratic idiot because you have to be at war for anything to be claimed as treason. President Trump had the right to have Biden son investigated because he is stealing from other countries maybe even ours. Trump investigating Biden son will not have an influence on any election as Biden son is not running for anything.
    The Democratic Party wants to hang somebody check out Hillary Clinton that should’ve been done along time ago.
    So again the Democratic Party needs to use our tax dollars constructively instead wasting it on this crap.

    GO PRESIDENT TRUMP
