Hoyer Describes MAGA as ‘Make America Grieve Again’

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) is offering his own take on President Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan.

During a speech on the House floor amid impeachment proceedings on Wednesday, Hoyer mentioned the rioters who violently descended on the U.S. Capitol last week and suggested their actions serve as another meaning to Trump’s slogan.

“They had the hats on of the army of MAGA, which I refer to as ‘Make America Grieve Again,'” Hoyer said.

He added, “We grieved at Fort Sumter. We grieved on Dec. 7, 1941, and we grieved on 9/11 and, yes, we grieved on Jan. 6 of this year.”

The House is expected to impeach the president, charging him with “incitement of insurrection,” as IJR previously reported.

He called the impeachment efforts “absolutely ridiculous” and argued it is “causing tremendous anger.”

Democrats are not the only ones in favor of impeaching Trump.

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) announced on Tuesday she would vote to impeach Trump, as IJR previously reported.

“The President of the United States summoned this mob, assembled the mob, and lit the flame of this attack. Everything that followed was his doing,” Cheney said in a statement.

Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) joined Cheney in planning on voting to impeach Trump.

“There is no doubt in my mind that the President of the United States broke his oath of office and incited this insurrection,” Kinzinger wrote in a statement.

According to Axios, there is a “better than 50-50 chance” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) would vote in favor of impeaching Trump.

Vice President Mike Pence rejected a push to invoke the 25th Amendment and remove Trump from office.

“I do not believe that such a course of action is in the best interest of our nation or consistent with our Constitution,” Pence wrote in a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).

  1. holy crap! these guys didnt say a word about the past 9 months of riots THAT THEY CONDONED no less and one day and no damage done and already crying that much more..

  2. Pathetic! The Republican party is done. Liz Cheney has a lot of gull after what her father put this nation through and I’m not sure that I’ve ever seen a turncoat so obvious as Mitch McConnel. Pathetic scum, every single one of them. Democrats call for unity and then they turn around an impeach the President who did absolutely nothing wrong, which is s slap in the face to the 75 million people who voted for him. But they don’t care about bringing the nation together now. That was the rhetoric before they rigged the Georgia runoffs and before the pussy Republicans allowed them to get away with the biggest fraud ever perpetrated on the American people. In fact, it wouldn’t surprise me now if most of the Republicans were in on it the whole time. I hope Trump starts a new political party because I’d switch to it in a heart beat. Now that the Democrats have total control, where is the rhetoric about everyone coming together? It’s gone from their vocabulary because they no longer need it. Now they can steamroll over all of us. Goodbye America. It was nice knowing you while you lasted.

    1. “they turn around an (sic) impeach the President who did absolutely nothing wrong” Sean

      I am confused, Sean. How do you expect to be taken seriously, if you continue to believe and repeat stupid nonsense such as this? You are delusional.

      “I hope Trump starts a new political party because I’d switch to it in a heart beat.” Sean

      Come on, Sean. Can you REALLY see such a lazy person actually putting the effort into creating a new political party? Plus, suggesting that you would actually join such a party, IF it could ever gain any momentum, shows that you are just a mindless cult member of 45. Right? You are following a cult leader and THAT is all that is important to you. Certainly POLICY means nothing to you.

      On top of this, he will never live long enough to ever see any new party membership grow in numbers enough to the point of something resembling something of substance. Who else would be able to make it grow if he fails? You? Then what? I don’t think you have thought this through yet, have you Sean?

      Re: unity

      There will be no unity going forward. None, in either party, if things stay as they are. The American Fascist Party is now divided between a handful of relatively untainted old misogynistic Republicans who just want to make rich people even more rich, a LOT of contaminated remnants of the Tea Party and other disingenuous libertarian assholes, plus all of the wackos who either backed Dear Leader or who wanted a king or, now, include Q-Anon and other psychopaths and conspiracy theorists who don’t believe in facts, science or education. I am confused, did I leave anyone out?

      Please tell us why the Democratic Party, which has its own problems, should even TRY to hold a hand out to them? Why? There is nothing to work with them. They are either dangerous or so empty headed that we would need a litmus test just to find out if they are alive or not.

      No, there will be no unity with that type of people and weak Biden should not even attempt to find some.

  3. So after a spring and summer of watching groups loot and burn, a guy with horns on is what the Democrat’s fear?

    I find it comical that the same people who wanted the Capital Police defunded are now praising them. Yet no one answer to all the questions being asked.

    1. Lol. That’s a pathetic comment. Just because someone isn’t a violent animal doesn’t make them afraid. I don’t believe in violence but I wouldn’t hesitate to protect myself and those I love. Not to mention Mr. Viking had to have his mommie come and make sure he had his organic meals in jail. What a pussy! 😂

    2. You seem pretty confused, Robert. Because of that you are making a bunch of either assumptions or projections that just don’t work. It’s really kind of difficult to tell exactly what you are really trying to say.

  4. How clever. Biden being President means the government will be crooked again. Watch the abuses of power. He’s not even President yet and he’s already abusing his power. Say goodbye to your rights.

  5. Such grandstanding. Which is what career politicians do best. But some may find that come next election they’ll need to look for a real job. One where there is work with real results involved.

  6. Don’t impeach. America doesn’t want violence. If you do, you’ll regret your actions.
