GOP Senator: Jesus warned us about lawyers and doesn’t want to see Trump impeached

Turns out it’s not just Trump supporters who are opposed to the president being impeached. Jesus himself is against the idea.

Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) took to Twitter on Sunday and posted this bit of idiocy:

Just one tiny problem: Jesus never said any such thing. The quote is actually from William Shakespeare’s play “Henry VI, Part 2,” as HuffPost notes:

In the Shakespeare play, character Dick the Butcher listens to a cohort dreaming of becoming an all-powerful king. Dick pipes up: “The first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers.”

Of course, considering that a member of the GOP sent out the errant tweet, it’s really not a surprise that Blackburn didn’t know the line belonged to the Bard. After all, writers and artists are all radicals and socialists to Republicans.

Fortunately, others on social media were only too happy to give Blackburn the online drubbing she so richly deserves. Take a look:

Maybe Marsha can get herself a Cliff’s Notes version of Shakespeare and the Bible. Provided, of course, she has time to read those when she isn’t worshiping at the altar of Donald Trump.
