Democratic Tennessee Rep. Steve Cohen on Monday called for the “military folks” to save America from President Donald Trump after Trump’s much-criticized press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“Where are our military folks? The Commander in Chief is in the hands of our enemy!” Cohen wrote on Twitter, using language suggestive of a military coup.
Cohen later said that he was in no way calling for a coup. “No coup called for,” he wrote, claiming it unlikely that someone would call for a coup on Twitter.
Cohen’s bizarre tweet was similar to one from former Obama CIA Director John Brennan, who claimed on Monday that Trump’s press conference was “treasonous.” (RELATED: Ex-CIA Director John Brennan Accuses Trump Of Treason Following Putin Summit)
Trump claimed on Monday that he confronted Putin about Russian election meddling but later sounded skeptical about the U.S. Intelligence Community’s conclusion that Russia was meddling in American politics during the 2016 presidential campaign.
Cohen’s tweet on Monday came just three days after the congressman apologized for saying that disgraced anti-Trump FBI agent Peter Strzok deserves a purple heart for facing a tough congressional hearing. (RELATED: Dem Rep. Cohen Warns Trump Team: You’ll End Up ‘Sullied’ Like Ronny Jackson [VIDEO])
