Never-Trumper Evan McMullin threatens Trump: ‘We will push you right out of office’ if you fire Rosenstein

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.”

This is the tweet that triggered McMullin:

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

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.
