Chump could not postpone the election even if he wanted to. That is simply not possible.

Second- or third-wave COVID spikes in the next 6 months. Economy crashing further. Massive unrest. Time to declare emergency and martial law, station troops at county voting offices to maintain order, and take dissidents into protective custody. Surviving SCOTUS justices might rule on legality in a year or three.

"Oh no, it can't happen here!"

I sure hope not.

And then, on January 20th, Trump's term ends and President Schumer has him clapped in irons.

Schumer and all other enemies chattering Dems will be in protective custody by Hallowe'en. For their own good. Locked in cages with predators at the Capitol Zoo. They'll be quite safe there. Or maybe by the Ft Riley KS ammo bunkers located inside the fenced Custer Hill buffalo paddock. Nobody trespasses or escapes.
