Apparently, some obscure Representative no one has ever heard of mused about whether or not President Trump will fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller next week, and the entire #Resistance freaked out.  They are hastily organizing spontaneous protests should Trump indeed fire Mueller, and Twitter is abuzz with their frenzied outrage . . . and a good bit of well-deserved mockery.

The Hill reported yesterday that Representative Jackie Speier (D-CA) appeared on some local PBS channel and shared that there’s a “rumor” that President Trump is giving a major speech next week and that he intends to fire Mueller on December 22nd.

Congresswoman Jackie Speier (D-San Mateo) told KQED Newsroom on Friday that she believes Republicans are trying to shut down the House Intelligence Committee’s probe into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 elections.

Speier also said, “The rumor on the Hill when I left yesterday was that the president was going to make a significant speech at the end of next week. And on Dec. 22nd, when we are out of D.C., he was going to fire Robert Mueller.”

If this were to happen, Speier said, it would cause a constitutional crisis.  “That is Saturday massacre 2.0,” she said. “Without a doubt there would be an impeachment effort.”


The response to this was . . . bizarre.

Walter Shaub whose Twitter profile states that he’s Former Director, US Office of Gov’t Ethics tweeted this:

He also tweeted the following:

Rank-and-file “resisters” are very fired up.

The fear-mongering and alarm doesn’t stop there; they’ve got some sort of “rapid response team” thing going to organize protests across the country.

Not everyone is quite so gullible or drowning in Trump Derangement Syndrome, however.
