Salem Witches object - they own copyright to Witch Hunt

Salem Witch Trails of 1692-93

Donald Trump has violated yet another law. His claim about being the victim of a "Witch Hunt" is now challenged by the Salem Massachusetts Congressman, who represents the place where the original atrocities occured.  In other words, Donald Trump had no license to use the copyrighted term "Witch Hunt". In fact, Trump isn't the subject of a Witch Hunt, because the practice of hunting witches ended in about 1693, and current witches don't take kindly to infringment on their copyrighted era.

Salem MA Congressman Representative Seth Moulton has taken issue with Donald Trump's claim that he is the victim of the single greatest witch hunt in American history.

Moreover, Donald Trump was insensitive to the original victims when he declared himself the victim of a Witch Hunt. He should have checked with the surviving families of the original victims before infringing on their intellectual property rights. May the original victims, all of them unjustly executed without objective due process, rest in peace.

This is a list of people associated with the Salem witch trials,
a series of hearings and prosecutions of people accused of witchcraft in colonial Massachusetts between February 1692 and May 1693. The trials resulted in the executions of twenty people, most of them women (one man is on this unfortunate list):

Bridget Bishop (née Playfer; executed June 10, 1692)
Rebecca Nurse (née Towne; July 19, 1692)
Sarah Good (formerly Poole, née Solart; July 19, 1692)
Elizabeth Howe (née Jackson; July 19, 1692)
Susannah Martin (née North; July 19, 1692)
Sarah Wildes (née Averill; July 19, 1692)
George Burroughs (August 19, 1692)
George Jacobs, Sr. (August 19, 1692)
Martha Carrier (née Allen; August 19, 1692)
John Proctor (August 19, 1692)
John Willard (August 19, 1692)
Martha Corey (September 22, 1692; wife of Giles Corey)
Mary Eastey (née Towne; September 22, 1692)
Mary Parker (née Ayer; September 22, 1692)
Alice Parker (September 22, 1692)
Ann Pudeator (September 22, 1692)
Wilmot Redd (September 22, 1692)
Margaret Scott (September 22, 1692)
Samuel Wardwell, Sr. (September 22, 1692)

Donald Trump said at a news conference, whining about the Russian investigation, "The entire thing has been a witch hunt and there is no collusion between certainly myself and my campaign - but I can always speak for myself - and the Russians. Zero," he told the news conference. (HELLO?  Donald Trump also speaks for the Russians?  OMG!)  Regardless of what Donald Trump claims about being the victim of a Witch Hunt, he obviously has not given credit to those who made this copyright claim possible.  

Perhaps Donald Trump will apologize to the real Witch Hunt victims families and give a reparations to the Salem Witch Museum
