THREAD: Today, Trump accused the Supreme Court of attacking Americans with "shotgun blasts."

By riling up his base, Trump increases the risk of violence for all judges, who he often delegitimizes when he doesn't like their decisions. 1/4
In March, when Schumer criticized conservative justices and said they would "pay the price" for "awful decisions," Chief Justice Roberts called him out and said statements like this were "dangerous"

The next day, Schumer said he "should not have used the words [he] used." 2/4
Trump tweeted that Schumer had "brought great danger" to the Supreme Court.

Trump added that a Republican would've been "arrested or impeached" for similar comments.

Well, we've already impeached Trump, so should we arrest him? 3/4
McConnell said of Schumer: "His comments were astonishingly reckless and irresponsible....No matter the intention, words carrying the apparent threat of violence can have horrific unintended violence"

Now, let's see if McConnell calls out Trump's violent rhetoric.
