I’m so fucking sick of people thinking that Trump doesn’t want to be a dictator or that he’s not trying to have a coup even as he fucking tries over and over again to do so. Just because he’s fucking stupid doesn’t mean he’s not attempting a coup. It’s completely fucking clear that he is, and he has significant support within the Republican party.
This is the FUCKING PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES with significant support in government, not some crackpot running for dog catcher in Wyoming. He gutted the post office to try to suppress the vote. He called on his supporters to “stand back and stand by” and talked about how they needed to go out and watch the election closely because the democrats were going to try to steal it, in an attempt to have thugs go out and prevent people from voting. He cast doubt on the entire process over and over again. He says that he deserves 8 more years (or sometimes 12 more years) because his first term didn’t count. He said, about Xi Ping being declared president for life, that we should try that here.
When he lost, he said he won. He cast doubt on the entire process, and not only cast doubt, but flat out said that he won and that the democrats are trying to steal your country and you need to go out and fight him. He made calls to congressmen, secretaries of state, and who knows what else, threatning them to make up votes to favor him or disqualify votes from his opponent.
And then he calls an angry mob from all around the country, fires them up, tells them that they need to go down to the capitol and encourage congress to “stop the steel” and illegally make him president, and then they do… and… it’s not a coup because he’s so fucking bad at everything that he keeps failing?
It’s a fucking coup. It is unambiguously a coup. It’s a dangerous coup even with a fucking imbecile leading it. He has significant support still from within the Republican party. If that fucking crowd takes a right instead of a left, suddenly they’re murdering half of Congress. Is it a coup then? Is it not a coup because one savvy cop lured them away from Congress?
For fucks sake, people, you are so fucking willfully blind to what’s going on in some desperate attempt to retain some sense of normalcy that you won’t consider something is a coup until maybe everyone’s head is on a pike and King Donald I is crowned, and then I’m sure you’d actually make up some excuse as to why this isn’t actually a coup because “it’s just not”
What the fuck is wrong with you?
