Sarah Silverman calls for military to overthrow President Trump

RealClear Contributor


Sarah Silverman is now under fire for apparently calling for a military coup against President Donald Trump.

The comedian posted in all-capital letters Wednesday night to her nearly 10 million followers to "wake up & join the resistance."

She added, "Once the military is w us fascists get overthrown. Mad king & his handlers go bye bye."

Now, we can't really hold her tweet against her because there is no mention of Donald Trump and she could simply be talking about the latest episode of Game Of Thrones she watched. But the timing of the tweet came amid the violent riots that broke out in Berkeley, California, over Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos' now-canceled speech at UC Berkeley.

Many are interpreting her tweet as hate speech but Silverman has yet to come out to clarify statement.

So what do you think about Sarah Silverman's tweet? Do you think it was intentionally meant to create a coup against President Donald Trump or was it just an innocent tweet? Let me know in the comments section below or on Facebook.
