These calls for violence have been increasing and MSNBC has been one of the main perpetrators of this violent rhetoric.
Leftist Rosie O'Donnell said she wanted the U.S. military to "get" President Donald Trump during an MSNBC panel discussion on Thursday, saying that Trump was "evil" and "dark."
"It gives me such comfort and hope to hear people who I before described as not my people, giving me a little bit of hope to think to myself, there are people who still feel this way and believe this way that we’re going to right this ship," O'Donnell said. "We’re going to right this ship. There’s no way he’s going to prevail. Because he’s evil, he’s dark. It’s the opposite of what America stands for. One light in the darkness, one candle is all it takes."
"I actually got physically sick that night," O'Donnell later said, describing her reaction to the 2016 election. "I thought to myself, this cannot be happening. When he got the nomination, I thought I just have to wait until election day ... and then he won. It took a good year to compose myself to be in public again. I took a year out of the spotlight."
"What I wrote on Twitter was we should impose martial law until we make sure the Russians weren’t involved in the final tally of the votes," O'Donnell continued. "People were like, 'martial law, what’s wrong with you? You are a lunatic …' I want to send the military to the White House to get him."
