But Trump & his crew plotted just that.
AsI reflected on events in real time, I couldn’t help but think that a coup has been set in motion by the current president and his cronies. I certainly didn’t have that possibility on my 2020 Election bingo card.
I expected the toddler in chief to refuse to concede. I expected the GOP to continue its standard operating procedure of falling in line with their leader and refusing to congratulate Joe Biden and Kamala Harris on their White House win. I expected the administration to use its last 70-some days to tear apart whatever they could about fairness and democracy.
But I confess, I didn’t expect a full-out coup attempt.
Just connect the dots from the last few days, and it’s clear that #45 and his administration aren’t just being petulant toddlers by not conceding. A series of actions have specifically been taken that can reasonably be interpreted as setting a coup in motion to prevent Biden and Harris from becoming president and vice-president — one that the president’s pitchfork-and-torch-carrying supporters are sure to get behind. Here are the facts to date:
Think I’m getting ahead of myself? Think an unlawful coup can’t happen in America? It doesn’t take a Ph.D. in political science to connect all these, and other, dots. Surely, there will be more firings and other actions to come that will set as many roadblocks in Biden’s path as possible.
It is clear that the putsch has been set in motion. Now, we have to figure out how to prevent it from succeeding.
