Maryland 'Deplorables' Threaten Liberals with Armed Attack if Trump Is Impeached

Maryland residents were disturbed when a billboard appeared on Solomons Island Road in Calvert County that seemed to threaten opponents of President Donald Trump with an armed insurrection.


“Hey liberals,” reads the billboard. “Better get your guns if you try to impeach President Trump. From all of your deplorables in Calvert County.”

The Calvert County Sheriff’s Office has reportedly been “flooded with phone calls” regarding the sign.

“I hate that billboard," one woman said, explaining that it frightened her son. “I think it’s very threatening. I don’t like it at all.”

“I’m a Republican but I think it’s a little offensive,” Kelly Mazzella offered. Fellow conservative Michelle Rinker said she "love[d]" the threatening billboard.

The sign's owner will reportedly change the sign after he returns to town, following a discussion with the sheriff.
