Responding to a tweet issued by President Trump, Evan McMullin, the never-Trump spoiler candidate who failed in his effort to give Hillary Clinton the White House, issued a not-so-veiled threat against the president, telling him that if he fires Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, “we will push you right out of office.”
If you fire Rosenstein, we will push you right out of office. https://t.co/AxfkNot4Te

This is the tweet that triggered McMullin:
Much of the bad blood with Russia is caused by the Fake & Corrupt Russia Investigation, headed up by the all Democrat loyalists, or people that worked for Obama. Mueller is most conflicted of all (except Rosenstein who signed FISA & Comey letter). No Collusion, so they go crazy!

Naturally, McMullin’s tweet prompted the predictable responses, with some wondering exactly how he thinks “we” will do this.

Who is this "we", you are referring to? Do you have a congressional mouse in your pocket ? https://t.co/o89ot1jt2S

Good question. As one person observed, he’ll have a lot of people to contend with:
They have to go through us . All 63 million let him try !

Apparently, Twitchy said, “McMullin’s got a posse.”
One person told McMullin to go away:
You are one envious fool. I am so glad I did not “WASTE” my vote on you. Trump may have sinned in the past but you are the sinner now. Please go hide under the rock you came out off. The fool of Proverbs is @Evan_McMullin

Regular readers of this site may recall that just a little over a year ago, McMullin was triggered by chants of “USA,” falsely claiming that Trump was pushing white nationalism.
Tonight in Tennessee, Trump promotes the policies of white nationalism to chants of "USA! USA!" These are not the values of our nation.

One Twitter user minced no words calling McMullin a traitor:
Listen McMuffin, you lost by 62+ million votes. Therefore, you are irrelevant. However, you wish to be a nuisance. If US civil war breaks out, you will be on top of traitors list as an unsurvivorable. #RubyRidge

Another person noted:
Trump isn't going anywhere. He broke no laws. However, Rosenstein should worry.

As the Business Insider noted, “the knives have been out for Rosenstein since it emerged that the FBI raided the home and office of Michael Cohen, Trump’s longtime personal lawyer, on Monday.”
The report added:
Joseph diGenova, a controversial former federal prosecutor who was recently under consideration to join President Donald Trump’s legal team, said Wednesday night that Attorney General Jeff Sessions should fire Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein “tomorrow morning.”
DiGenova made the comments to the Fox News opinion-show host, Sean Hannity, who is an ardent Trump supporter. Shortly before Hannity’s show aired featuring comments from diGenova and other Trump supporters, the president plugged it on Twitter.
“Big show tonight on @seanhannity! 9:00 P.M. on @FoxNews,” he tweeted.
On Hannity’s show, diGenova called the special counsel Robert Mueller’s team “legal terrorists” and said James Comey, the former FBI director, was a “dirty cop.”
As for McMullin’s threat, something tells me the president isn’t too worried…
