STEVE DOOCY: He tweeted something out that has gotten a lot of attention because he uses the word "lynching." He tweeted out:

So someday, if a Democrat becomes President, and the Republicans win the House, even by a tiny margin, they can impeach the President without due process, or fairness or any legal rights. All Republicans must remember what they are witnessing here -- a lynching. And we will win!

And because the President used that terrible word, he was condemned by not only Democrats, but Republicans, and Joe Biden, who said this.

AINSLEY EARHARDT: "Impeachment is not 'lynching.' It is part of our Constitution. Our country has a dark, shameful history with lynching, and to even think about making this comparison is abhorrent. It is despicable."

BRIAN KILMEADE: He took a principled stand. And, of course, in his lifetime, he would never, ever say anything like that. After all, he's been In this business for 50 years. Never would he stoop so low except for this time.

SENATOR JOE BIDEN (D-DE) (FROM 1998): Even if the President should be impeached, history is going to question whether or not this was just a partisan lynching or whether or not it was something that, in fact, met the standard -- the very high bar that was set by the founders as to what constituted an impeachable offense.

"This wasn't the right word to use, and I'm sorry about that. Trump on the other hand chose his words deliberately today in his use of the word lynching and continues to stoke racial divides in this country daily."

KILMEADE: Well, it's a terrible word, but don't act there and condemn the President and say, "Well, the big difference is, I used it on live television and he used it in a tweet as he used it deliberately." He looked pretty sure of himself when he used that term. He had 22 years to walk it back. He hasn't yet.

DOOCY: According to the Washington Post, Jerry Nadler used the term "lynch mob" three times. Also Gregory Meeks, Democrat from New York, Charlie Rangel, Jim McDermott, and Danny Davis, a Democrat from Illinois, all who were critical of Mr. Trump's tweet. ...
