Chelsea Handler has been a busy “resister” on social media this week.
The Netflix star must have felt the controversy from her tweet on Monday, where she wore an anti-President Donald Trump t-shirt, because she raised her game to borderline criminality on Friday.
From BizPac Review
Handler called for generals in the United States military to remove the president from office by force or face the consequence of being known negatively in history.
“To all the generals surrounding our idiot-in-chief…the longer U wait to remove him, the longer UR name will appear negatively in history,” she wrote.

It’s possible, in fact it is probable, that Handler is unfamiliar with 18 U.S. Code § 2385 or the term sedition. But here is a quick explanation for her, as defined by Cornell.
Whoever knowingly or willfully advocates, abets, advises, or teaches the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying the government of the United States or the government of any State, Territory, District or Possession thereof, or the government of any political subdivision therein, by force or violence, or by the assassination of any officer of any such government; or
Whoever, with intent to cause the overthrow or destruction of any such government, prints, publishes, edits, issues, circulates, sells, distributes, or publicly displays any written or printed matter advocating, advising, or teaching the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying any government in the United States by force or violence, or attempts to do so; or
Whoever organizes or helps or attempts to organize any society, group, or assembly of persons who teach, advocate, or encourage the overthrow or destruction of any such government by force or violence; or becomes or is a member of, or affiliates with, any such society, group, or assembly of persons, knowing the purposes thereof—
Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for employment by the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the five years next following his conviction.
For the second time this week, folks on social media let Handler her know what they think of her and her idiotic tirades.
That’s not the way our country works Handler. Obama wasn’t the sharpest tool in shed either.

Man Chelsea. Do you think before you tweet? You really want the military to overthrow the President? Think about that for a moment.

To all those stupid Dems out there, your statement is Sedition and punishable by prison.

I thought sedition was against the law?
