Trump's false and dangerous “coup” claim comes from Fox News and conservative talk radio

Over the past week, Fox News and conservative talk radio have relentlessly characterized the House of Representatives’ formal impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump as a “coup d’etat” by Democrats “to try and take our votes away from us.” Right-wing talk radio hosts have claimed Trump “is not going down without a fight” and questioned “how much longer are we going to endure” the House investigations. In an October 1 tweet, Trump repeated the dangerous and false rhetoric that the constitutionally protected inquiry “is a COUP” to “take away the Power of the … People.”
