Salem Witches Got a Better Deal

Trump calls impeachment inquiry a witch hunt

I don’t march lockstep with the President’s views but I usually find a point of agreement with what he says. I have a penchant for overstatement. I appreciate the intended reaction his statements, sometimes trigger. However, I disagree with his characterization of the current impeachment climate as a “witch hunt.”

During a trip to New York the President made that comparison according to USA Today.

Adam Mill, in The Federalist Blog also disagrees with Trump. In his article, Mill argues that President Trump does a disservice to the witch hunters of Salem circa 1692. He has a point.

A more appropriate comparison would be to describe democrat efforts as a “show trial.” The same type practiced by the democrat party mentor, Chairman Mao.
