Colorado invokes 14th Amendment in an attempt to remove Trump from ballot

Colorado is pulling out all the stops to get former president Donald Trump’s name off the 2024 GOP presidential ballot.

Trump’s legal team is back in court defending their client as the state attempts to use the Fourteenth Amendment to throttle his campaign.

Dr. Peter Simi, who is being heralded as an “expert,” took the stand against Trump to discuss his supposed “far-right extremism.”

Simi testified that Trump has actually called for violence, which is something he claims to have never seen a political figure do before.

To demonstrate Trump’s abhorrent, violent speech, prosecutors played a clip of him for the court.

In the clip, Trump is heard discussing election integrity, which he finishes with “we fight, we fight like hell, and if you don’t fight like hell, you’re not going to have a country anymore.”

Sara Gonzales is amused that the court thought that was violent.

“That couldn’t have been metaphorical, he clearly was calling for violence. And by the way, no one on the left has ever called for any sort of violence or taking to the streets or getting up in Trump supporters' faces,” Gonzales mocks.

BlazeTV contributor Jaco Booyens notes that it's not only leftist politicians, like Maxine Waters, who have blatantly called for violence but also celebrities, including Johnny Depp and Kathy Griffin.

However, this information was dismissed by the Colorado court.

Colorado’s Secretary of State, Jena Griswold, made sure to drive this point home.

“Having a court weigh in when there is reason to weigh in is exactly how our system should work. Filing a case because there’s questions about the US Constitution is not election interference; it’s abiding by a society that puts laws over strong men, insurrectionists, and rebellion,” she told Fox31.

Booyens is disgusted. “We’re just going to go to the court, never mind that the court’s completely swayed to the left, that the judge is bought off, yes, bought off, that the DA is as corrupt as Biden himself.”

“Where’s innocent until proven guilty?” he asks.
