R1 - none of the active military would do that - they would be courtmartialed. Besides, he hasn't exactly done much to endear himself to military members. Despite that bullshit letter from a month ago from retired former military commanders (all in their 70's or 80's), there's not much military support to make this happen.
The military doesn't support Trump in the numbers that you are led to believe. There's been too much shit.

You're never going to get enough generals and, more importantly, soldiers to do a coup. Sorry, but your fantasy can never happen with the largest military in the world. It's too big and you'd have to have a huge amount of support at the top and bottom to do it - and it just isn't there.
Even if you had a couple of thousand, the rest of the armed forces would zoom in and take them out.

This is the sort of thread that appeals to DL's MARYs!!! and DL's Borises
Trump is the best thing to happen to Democrats in a while.
You know who is NOT affected by all those new voting laws? The affluent white suburbanites who are leaving the GOP in droves, now that it is officially the Party of White Trash.
You know who IS affected by them? All those poor rednecks and many of the Latinos in Texas who voted for Trump. And unlike Black voters, they don't have churches and Stacey Abrams working to counteract the law's effects.
The more GOP leaders have to kowtow to Trump, the worse they look, the more likely it is they will run unelectable right wing freaks.
And despite all the fearmongering about 2022, many Trump voters don't turn out in midterms--they only turn out to vote for Trump, and like MTG, it's often the only time they've ever actually voted.
Also the Hillary Stans hate Haberman because she did not sufficiently genuflect to their Queen, but she's anything but a Trumpist.

R39, I know that sounds ridiculous, but that’s actually what QAnons were saying in the first couple months after the inauguration. A lot of people pointed out their bodies weren’t remotely the same. I never heard an answer to that so maybe they thought it was a brain transplant or something.
I’ve also heard Hillary and Biden were executed and replaced by clones, they are in Guantanamo and replaced by clones, Biden is living in LA and appears in a Hollywood studio made up to look like the White House, and other ridiculous stuff. There is no bottom to the impossible stuff they will believe. It’s a cult.
I agree that the Democrats are handling this much too ineffectively. Spend some time looking at some of the posts of these wackos. The more they’re allowed to carry on without being stopped, the bigger the movement grows. At a certain point, they will be able to win elections even in purple and blue areas and then you’ll be living in a fascist hellhole for the rest of your life, because of voter suppression and gerrymandering. McConnell packed the federal courts with extremist judges and at a certain point that’s going to come home to roost. It needs to be put down definitively before it’s too late.

Of course, it's a grift and a pretext for separating the deplorables fromt their last few bucks. But more importantly, Shitler is STARVED for attention and announcing another coup attempt is his last desperate bid to be talked about. His "alternative to Twitter" website, crashed and burned, predictably. Biden is at an unheard of 60% approval rating, which is driving him to desperation.
This is about his two favorite things, Attention and money. He's facing an almost certain slew of indictments from Vance's grand Jury and that represents only a fraction of his legal exposure.

Not sure that whatever hairball the Republicans cough up for president will be smarter and slicker than Trump, remember this is the party that went from Nixon to Reagan to Bush to Junior to Trump, each dumber and more incompetent than the last (with the possible exception of the elder Bush).

Trump voters like Trump.

While it makes no logical sense that blue collar Americans see Trump as one of them and the guy who stands up for them against all the media and political types who Think They're Better Than Us, it is exactly how they think.
Point being the GOP has lost the upscale suburban Bush/Romney voters by becoming the Party of White Trash America and they're going to struggle to get the Trump voters with anyone who is not Trump

Don't discount the massive switch up that is going on.
Republicans are becoming the party of White Trash. A Trump sign on the lawn is akin to having an old refrigerator out there or a Confederate flag on your pick-up truck.
So all the upper middle class suburbanites who used to vote for "nice" Republicans like Romney have abandoned the GOP and aren't coming back.
At the same time, corporate America is moving to the Democrat's side too and the GOP is quick to exploit that, and are trying to paint the Democrats as the party of out of touch wealthy elitists who don't care about the working class and only want to give money to Black people.
So far it hasn't been working that well, but there is an awful lot of class resentment in America as the gap between the top 20% and the bottom 80% gets wider and wider.
If Democrats were smart, they'd listen to Biden and his talk about how his proposals will benefit ALL Americans, not just the winners of the Oppression Olympics.

The reinstatement crap is just a grift and should only be referred to as such. The real threat is the state-by-state voter suppression efforts that are happening right now which will ruin elections at every level beginning in 2022, because the GOP will steal what they cannot win. MAGA Haberman's "don't take your eyes off Trump, he's the real threat!" is just what Trump wants--pay attention to him and inflate his power, all the while the ratfucking GOP destroys democracy while you're looking elsewhere.
The real threat are the "sensible" Republicans who are hell bent on STOPPING PEOPLE FROM VOTING. Not some half-baked "audit" spearheaded by QAnon nutters that everyone knows is bullshit and has ZERO legal authority. The press continues to cover for the former under the veneer of "both sides" while hyping the latter for clicks and ratings, and to keep Trump riled up.

Even just since the election--Jan. 6 was supposed to be the big event, then Jan. 27, then March, now August. Nothing happens. But Trump sycophants in the press want us to take it "seriously" while casually covering the actual voter suppression happening in several states under the guise of "oh, Democrats and Republicans are squaring off again about elections.

There is no legal mechanism to "reinstate" Trump. And he doesn't have any kind of support for a successful military coup. That's all noise to drum up money and resentment. Jan. 6 was the apex of what he could pull off with brute force, and it was an idiot parade.
The real goal is what they are doing with voter suppression laws so that the GOP can declare themselves election winners without actually winning. So in 2022 they retake the House and Senate even if they fail to get the votes, which positions them to take the Presidency in 2024 even when they lose.

I realize these deplorables are delusional, but if I could just pose a logical argument for a moment:
What I don't understand is someone like the woman featured in the OP video. She and others like her are Americans. They were born and brought up in the U.S. They know we've never had a president (or probably any other political officeholder) reinstated. They know this. They know this has never happened before. They know it's an impossibility given the structure of the lines of presidential succession, the duties of Congress and the Supreme Court, the voting process of the U.S., the civilian authority over the military and the entire stability and function of the United States' government. Don't they understand that with all those structures serving as a functioning safety net, a military coup at this time is so remote it's ludicrous to even contemplate.
So how in the world could Trump ever be reinstated--not to mention, have it completed by August?!
And Trump, Sidney Powell and Michael Flynn know this is an impossibility too. Trump continues to spread this lie for fundraising purposes, but what's in it for Powell and Flynn?

In general, R164, most state bars require that a complaint be filed - that could be by a lien, another attorney, or just t member of the public. The complaint must state facts that constitute a violation of the the state legal disciplinary rules. If the complaint is accepted (typically by a panel of lawyers who serve as hearing officers for the disciplinary committee) the ,Ayer is served with the complain. Typically, the lawyer must file a written response with the committee wishing a certain period of time. Both parties are entitled to have their own lawyers (vs. representing themselves). After the lawyer’s response is received the committee can dismiss or schedule a hearing (usually a hearing happens). At the hearing, the panel makes a recommendation to the bar. That recommendation could range from private reprimand, to public reprimand (published somewhere that most folks don’t read), to suspension, to disbarment. Generally, the easiest way to get disbarred is to improperly handle a client’s money (e.g. our dear Mr, Girardi) or to take a case and then do nothing with it and let the statute of limitations expire.

It is always a case of believing that a free and fair election cannot decide anything without the accusation that it was rigged thus giving rise to massively idiotic rumors like Trump will be reinstated. The Repigs won't even go along with a commission to investigate Jan 6 which we all watched on television. It happened, but now the Repigs say things like it was a bunch of tourists, or it was no big deal.

Not an accurate analysis. Consider the followiing:
61 percent of republicans believe the 2020 election was stolen from Shitler. The Republican party is a personality cult defined by mental illness, delusion and rage. They are becoming the thing they love: Trump. There is no reasoning with them, they just have to be marginalized and cut out of the process because they are seditionists who want to destroy democracy.
29 percent of registered voters are Republicans. 33 percent are registered as Democrats, the rest independents. They are a distinct minority but a dangerous one.
January 6th revealed the truth of the Republican Party. The insanity and the soft grip on reality, but mostly the gullibility. They are a weaponized mass of cancer attempting to overturn Democracy. They crave authoritarianism, no matter how inept. In fact they LOVE how incompetent and stupid Trump is. He gives them life as they march to their doom.

[quote] The bigger problem with a relatively small and slightly shrinking party that has just lost a national election is that the kind of revisions in message and leadership such parties sometimes need to expand their appeal may be more difficult to secure when its membership is limited to its “base.” As I noted recently (playing off an excellent piece from Perry Bacon Jr.), there are a host of reasons the post-2020 Republican Party is disinclined to rethink its “brand” or even conduct an after-action review on its loss of the White House and both houses of Congress over the last four years. But a probable contributing factor on the margins is the fact that once swing voters are deducted from the GOP ranks, the remaining party members are more likely to hail from a party base that is completely complacent about the status quo ante. To put it more directly, a party membership increasingly dominated by MAGA bravos is going to be less likely to take off the red hats and look for a leader other than the 45th president.
[quote] And that is why “rebranding” and “autopsy” exercises most matter: When political parties are licking their wounds, their membership can be motivated to look beyond immediate views and reimagine a broader coalition. But if they are waving the bloody shirt of an alleged “stolen election” and find bitter and exclusive partisanship to be their most effective unifying glue, a reevaluation will be the last thing on their minds. That may be where the GOP is right now.
You can't win an election legitimately just with your base. And all the gerrymandering and voter suppression legislation will not help if the Liberal voters are more fired up, because of radical right wing MAGA message branding and the GQP's attempt to prevent voters from voting.
I would be a lot more concerned if the GOP had changed course and kicked Trumpers, QAnon believers, and Deplorables out of their party and pandered to minorities.

[quote]Jeez [R200], I ran the numbers based on the Reuters estimated number of registered Republicans at the beginning of 2021, and if 61% of them think the election was stolen from Trump, that's nearly 37 million people. That's insane.
Yes, roughly 37 million people. A percentage of those people are the Q loons and white supremacists who want to burn down the world they couldn't function effectively in. and see Trump and his enablers as effective matches to leverage that destruction.
The rest of Republican voters are low information voters who consume news superficially and who tend to consume only conservative media. As a result, the "less crazy" Republicans are fed a steady diet of minimized or erased efforts to overturn democracy and install Trump as an autocrat. They are fed a steady diet of "news" that tells them ANTIFA were the real culprits of 1/6th assault on the capital, that there is no evidence of any "collusion" between Shitler and Russia, They behave irrationally because they are accepting of a version of reality where democracy didn't hang in the balance for 4 years. Propaganda is effective and conservative media has been using it to great effect with this demographic.

In the face of all this shit there are two things I still believe that keep my optimism afloat:
a. The current lunatic GOP base will not turn out in the same numbers for a Trump substitute. Donald lights their fire and nobody else. (You really think these people are willing to die for Josh Hawley? Ted Cruz? Margorie Whatsfer Qanon Face Greene comes close.)
b. Donald isn't a functioning adult at this point. Yeah was he ever, I get that. But I believe he's at "weekend at Bernie's" levels at this point. It's going to be increasingly difficult for them to pump him with enough uppers to keep him coherent for an audience.
Since these are both speculative I could of course be wrong.

Even better R210 --- many of the people who voted for Trump in 2016 and 2020 are people who've never voted before and don't consider themselves to be Republicans as much as Trumpists. They're voting for The Donald not for the party. They are likely to find people like Hawley and Cotton and DeSantis every bit as "boring" and "phoney" and part of the "swamp" and "deep state" as they do most of the Democrats.
Meaning that while they won't vote for Biden or Harris or whoever in 2024, they're not going to vote for Cotton or DeSantis either.
They'll just do what they always did in the past and stay home.
Don't forget too that many of the restrictive laws the GOP is passing will hit poor rural Trump voters too.

From today’s Washington Post
Donald Trump permanently shuts down blog month after launching The blog that former president Donald Trump launched last month after he was banned from Twitter and Facebook is no more. Jason Miller, a spokesman for Trump, said that “From the Desk of Donald J. Trump” has been permanently shut down after all posts were scrubbed from Trump’s website.
Trump rolled out the blog last month after being absent from social media since January, but his effort to regain some of the attention he received with his headline-grabbing tweets largely failed. An adviser told The Washington Post’s Josh Dawsey that the former president wanted to open a new “platform” and didn’t like that this platform was being mocked and had so few readers. The individual spoke on the condition of anonymity to talk frankly about Trump’s plans. “It was just auxiliary to the broader efforts we have and are working on,” Miller told CNBC, which first reported the news. “Hoping to have more information on the broader efforts soon, but I do not have a precise awareness of timing.”
Trump was banned from Facebook and Twitter shortly after he continued to use his social media pages to make false accusations about the 2020 presidential election. His social media accounts were often viewed as one of the main ways Trump encouraged his supporters to reject Joe Biden’s presidential win. And the accounts have been cited as a prominent tool for inciting the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol by a mob of Trump supporters that resulted in five deaths and injuries to 140 police officers.

Trump can't sustain his momentum...
"...after their violent clashes with counter-protesters at the 'Unite the Right' white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August 2017. The white supremacist 'alt-right' movement fractured and ultimately faded from public view after the violence erupted that weekend."
... much less build it...
"... Infighting and prosecutions aren't the only issue — according to the report, Oath Keepers leader Stewart Rhodes has said they are now facing a devastating financial embargo... it has been difficult for the group to raise money as it's been kicked off certain websites. The group also lost the ability to process credit card payments online... "

^Many people I know have mentioned to me casually, in the last 3 or 4 months, how much of a relief it is to be free of the constant barrage of Trump's bullshit Twitter antics. People who don't view themselves as particularly political are just relieved not to have to be aware of him. I think that says a LOT about Trump's chances of getting re-elected.
|by Anonymous||reply 218||June 2, 2021 3:28 PM|
Trump is also a gift to the Democrats because none of the potential non-Trump candidates can start raising money until he officially declares he is not running in 24.
So if he waits until say late 2023, Cotton, DeSantis, Hawley, Haley et al have just a few months to build a war chest, versus Biden or Harris who have been raising money all along.
This puts them at an extreme disadvantage, especially given that the Deplorables will have already given much of their money to Trump.

OP A vote for delusional (if indeed he suggested the reinstatement).
Personally, I think that, like Harry Windsor, Trump been mentally disturbed since boyhood, but his wealth and family protected him from accountability for the actions his mental issues generated. The less accountability he experiences, the more delusional the individual becomes, increasingly convinced of his own ability to rewrite history and any other inconvenient realities, etc.
Psychologically, getting elected President was just possibly the worst thing that could have happened to Donald Trump, cementing his vision of himself as invulnerable, unstoppable, and unaccountable.
It turned out to be dismal for a great many other people, as well, but I'm speaking strictly clinically here.
So, delusional is my vote.

R229, my hunch is that he finally posted something truly dangerous and seditious, like another general call to his supporters to attack government officials/institutions. It was probably being monitored for something like that, and the moment he did it, it was shut down.
Kind of like that telephone call in 'The Andromeda Strain' - [beeping sound], followed by "This communication is being monitored. The connection has been broken for reasons of national security. You will be briefed at the appropriate time. Thank you for your cooperation, Mrs. Stone" - although I doubt anyone responsible for killing it thanked Trump for his cooperation.

I've no evidence that that was the case, but I would sincerely hope that US intelligence would be watching it that closely, able to monitor content even before it was officially posted, to shut it down. The stakes would be that high. I don't think that Trump would have shut it down of his own accord, ever. Too much like an acknowledgement of failure. Somebody turned him off, and I think Trump & Co were probably confronted about it immediately. An intervention of that sort would not be made public, since that would be the same as what they were attempting to prevent in terms of a dangerous message getting out.

When he was president he could write anything he wanted to say in 280 characters on Twitter. Now that he isn’t president he has to watch out what he writes. He can be sued for incitement, for slander, libel, whatever. Doesn’t mean the suers will win, but he can be sued and have to pay lawyers fees. To have a blog means to write in sentences & Trump can’t do that. Nor can his cult read sentences. They’re turned on by hyperbolic slogans and short shouts. Blurbs. Trump is the Blurb king. He blurbs all over the place, which was perfect for Twitter. But blurbs don’t look good on a blog. And how easy is it to get bots to visit & post responses on your blog?

Advisers say (Trump) voraciously watches any television coverage he can find of the Arizona recount and reads “everything he can get his hands on” about the audits, according to one person who speaks to Trump frequently. And he has made supporting his claims of a stolen election — or at least remaining silent about them — a litmus test of sorts as he decides whom to endorse for state and federal contests in 2022 and 2024.
“Everyone is talking about Arizona,” he said to an adviser who tried to broach 2022 endorsements. He brings up the topic at various events — even at nonprofit galas at his private Mar-a-Lago Club, where he made impromptu appearances this spring, they said. Anyone who tells him that he lost, one adviser said, “is pissing into the wind.” When advisers write speeches for him that do not refer to attempts to re-litigate the 2020 election, Trump ad-libs — riffing on states in granular detail.

Maggie Haberman floating the "August Reinstatement" story was intended to get Shitler some news cycle domination and generate fear. Instead, it has only inspired laughs and shrugs. Deplorables are all stupid but many of them seem to be realizing that he abandoned the january 6th seditionists who are now facing legal and personal consequences for fighting for him.. Against this backdrop they launch " August reinstatement" to laughs and indifference.
His upcoming planned public events will be under attended and his performance will be limp. Deplorbs are bored. He's about to be indicted and the world will move on.

It's telling that Maggie Haberman is being skewered by people on the right as a leftist NYT reporter who just wants to bring down Trump by spreading lies about it and by the Hillaryverse for being a Trump mouthpiece who is only trying to give his fascist ideas credibility.
The VERY right wing National Review today ran an article to answer the former group, the right-wing pundits who were claiming Haberman was just another anti-Trump troll by citing sources who claim that Trump is indeed thinking this about himself, McSally and Purdue too.
It's freaking the Trumpist TF out because it's pretty harsh and yet another sign that even very right wing conservatives are done with Trump, stick a fork in him.
(It's actually well-written too and makes many of the same points we made in this thread.)

And if you don't want to click because National Review, then these two paragraphs pretty much sum it up
[quote] The scale of Trump’s delusion is quite startling. This is not merely an eccentric interpretation of the facts or an interesting foible, nor is it an irrelevant example of anguished post-presidency chatter. It is a rejection of reality, a rejection of law, and, ultimately, a rejection of the entire system of American government. There is no Reinstatement Clause within the United States Constitution. Hell, there is nothing even approximating a Reinstatement Clause within the United States Constitution. The election has been certified, Joe Biden is the president, and, until 2024, that is all there is to it. It does not matter what one’s view of Trump is. It does not matter whether one voted for or against Trump. It does not matter whether one views Trump’s role within the Republican Party favorably or unfavorably. We are talking here about cold, hard, neutral facts that obtain irrespective of one’s preferences; it is not too much to ask that the former head of the executive branch should understand them.
[quote] Just how far out there is Trump’s theory? Consider that, even if it were true that the 2020 election had been stolen — which it is absolutely not — his belief would still be absurd. It could be confirmed tomorrow that agents working for a combination of al-Qaeda, Venezuela, and George Soros had hacked into every single voting machine in the country and altered the totals by tens of millions, and it would remain the case there is no mechanism within the American legal order for a do-over of any sort. In such an eventuality, there would be indictments, an impeachment drive, and a constitutional crisis. But, however bad it got, Donald Trump would not be “reinstated” to the presidency. That is not how America works, how America has ever worked, or how America can ever work. American politicians do not lose their reelection races only to be reinstalled later on, as might the second-place horse in a race whose winner was disqualified. The idea is otherworldly and obscene

Sure, pundits and the GOP elite always used hot button issues to rile the stupids up. That is not new. What is new is the mainstream's reaction to the bullshit the GOP is spreading. 9/11 was a powerful tool the right wing used to push their agenda through. People didn't dare to stand against "Support Our Troops!", "Why Do You Hate America?" rhetoric. The Republicans have nothing of that sort anymore. The general public seems them as evil traitors caring about their own selfish interests over what is good for the country. Even with recents actions like shutting down an official investigation into the 01/06 Capitol riot.
The general public has enough of the GQP's hate and fearmongering. The media distances itself from the most racist and craziest right wing pundits like Alex Jones and Roger Stone. Social media takes a stronger stance against haters like Donald Trump. The media reports on Parler not being that big of a powerhouse in right wing circles.
The sad truth is that we all were pushed to overestimate Trump's true wealth and his power. The GOP will always paint themselves as powerful bullies who get things done, but - again - the truth is that all they have are not even one third of the US voter demographic at this point. All because they still go all in for Trump who never had mass appeal in the first place. It was all media hype. Media hype that is gone now and the GOP refuses to change course despite Trump being immensely unpopular.

The media at the least enable this by not engaging in truthful, hard hitting investigative reporting. The clown is a distraction and a tool to use for their agenda. We also have an unknown number of stealth supporters. I said to everyone around me when that dangerous, corrupt, criminally insane cunt was illegally elected as POTUS: The rot is deep. He was a result of the rot, not the cause. Our government, justice, postal, and military have been stealthy targeted for years. This country did not become so dangerously corrupted in just five years. This took a long to get us in such a state of emergency, yes I believe this. We are at war. I fear tptb took too long, and still are taking too long, to fight Putin. The fact that the GOP are still allowed in any position of power is a glaring testament of how little is being done to fight this war in our democracy. They have been normalized.

I kind of agree with you r354 but Putin isn't running anything except the Russian mafia. There are American oligarchs who wish to destroy democracy so that they can rewrite the laws of the land giving them full power over everything. The only way Putin figures in is that they use him and his resources to disrupt things here in the US that helps their agenda. These oligarchs are authoritarians, they want a government that more closely resembles what China and Russia have, they want the people of America to have no power and no say in government.
They are getting it done with the GOP and members of the Democratic party who ran as Democrats because they changes their party in name but not in ideology. In other words they ran as Dems but they are still Republicans. They began implementing their plan to overtake the US with Reagan. Their plan was to gerrymander in states to get a Rep majority in order to gave Rep governors and in order to have an electoral college give them the votes to gain the White House. It took forty years, but they have achieved their goal. They also began to recruit white supremacists for police, FBI and other law departments. They also began to put right wing judges on the benches where ever they could. This was a plan and it was talked about during the last 40 years whenever there was an election of any note coming up, it seems not enough people were paying attention.

Yes, I know FB can review his status again in Jan 2023, but if he doesn't do anything that violates FB's rules between now and then, FB may have no alternative to allow him back.

R367- Oh, we know he would be incapable of restraint of any kind. His ego has been shattered over losing the election and it is slowly driving him more insane than he already was. Someone posted on another thread a few weeks ago that the rumor coming out of Maralago (sic) is that he is bitterly enraged about his lose and has become obsessed and it is all he can talk about. Also for a narcissistic bully like that the loss of all of that power over people and media attention is eating away at him like a malignant cancer.

From the Michael Wolf book.,
The Wolff book also reports that Trump eats in the dining room nearly every night in a roped-off area that makes he and his family look like zoo animals. Often Trump waits until the dining room is filled with people before he enters because those there stand and applaud him.
"The only membership qualification now, beyond the actual cost ($250,000, up from $150,000 before the presidency, plus a hefty yearly fee), is to be an abject Trump admirer," Wolff explained. "This may not be so much a political statement as an aesthetic one — the thrall of a super-celebrity."

There is actually a way to orchestrate a coup that wouldn't require a full on military invasion to pull off. The MAGAts in the house seem to be alluding to it. If you push Pelosi out of the way and installed Trump as speaker, he'd be third in line to the presidency. In that position, if an Erik Prince like assassin squad went after Biden and Harris, Trump is "reinstated" as President and because he wasn't elected again, he'd be able to run in 2024. It doesn't really require an army of tanks to pull this off, just some small maneuvering in the Trump loyalist House and a few trained hit men and they could pull it off. It's not out of the realm of possibility, so people should keep this in mind. They are evil and you shouldn't put it past them to do something like, especially if McCarthy fears what might come out in the commission.

We keep talking about the assholes who showed up on January 6th, but the crowds after Trump lost were far bigger. If they do try and pull that shit again, real Americans won't let them do it, because no one expected a bunch of parasites to do something like that, but now knowing what they're capable of, patriots won't let them succeed.
Don't mistake the silence for weakness. Trust me, if Trump tries to get back in (which he won't. He's just a lazy fucking asshole who wants the title, not the actual workload), there aren't enough of his losers to protect him, his family or the cockroaches themselves who support him. They will be overrun by the rest of us who are tired of their shit.

The 22nd Amendment does not mention a president serving two terms. It specifically says "No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice...." Trump was elected in 2016. He claims he was elected in 2020. So he's done. No 2024 for Pee Brain.
That's the argument being advanced by Laurence Tribe.

Charlie Manson was dangerous & he killed people & needed to be taken seriously but he couldn’t make Helter Skelter happen. Trump & his dummies are dangerous but people don’t want civil war. Gammy & Gampy will miss all the bDay parties for Bryannah & Taylyr & Kayleigh & Kadynn if there’s Civil War. The South & Midwest wouldn’t get their Social Security disability checks. The confederate states won’t get their military bases funded. See how Congress ran for the door when the assholes came in on January 6? You think those congressional reps are gonna pay the legal fees for those assholes? Nah. There’s a certain number of malcontents out there looking to make trouble & be outlaws. But most people don’t want any trouble & back away from the cult.
We’re aware of them. We’ll keep them on the radar. But there’s not much we can do about them no matter how much you holler that *somebody* needs to do *something.* I’m not gonna build up an arsenal. Proud Boys don’t have their own demonstrations. They invade other people’s demonstrations. Which is why I’m not going to any demonstrations. If you don’t get hit by police cars or tear gassed or smashed with a truncheon by cops you’ll get bashed by Proud Boys & who’s gonna pay your hospital bill?
All I hear is Democratic politicians & talking heads telling me i need to vote. I always vote, so…there’s nothing I need to do except keep voting. No need for me to panic. “The only thing you need to do is be sure to vote.” So I’m good.

[quote]...but people don’t want civil war.
That's an extremely broad statement that should not be made without the speaker taking the time and effort to quantify how big that nearly infinite class, "the people," really is. At least as it relates to his statement.
Obviously, some people in a variety of political camps champion a civil war. It may be difficult to quantify the size of that subgroup, and also the various subgroups that inhabit it, but it has to be done. It's not acceptable to wish it all away and give it the back of your hand with such an empty yet open-ended and unsupported 'reassurance' as 'the people.'
If you notice, that's want politicians. The people demand! The people expect! Yeah, yeah, yeah. WHICH PEOPLE?

After the election, many right wing nuts really did want a civil war. They felt Trump should just declare himself the winner, declare martial law, engage the military and kill any uprisings that arise. Many commenters on right wing sites were saying, that at that point, since Trump would be president, it would be the left attacking the government/white house and it would be the perfect time to kill all those pesky commies and it would be THEIR fault for attacking our government. This was a right wing meme for a time.

Trump isn't serving in the House of Representatives: How could he be speaker of it?
|by Anonymous||reply 494||July 30, 2021 3:10 PM|
While the Speaker of the House is always a member of the House, technically he or she does not need to be. Strangely, it would be within the rules for the House to elect Trump as speaker.

And if they do, we reeeeeeeally need law enforcement to immediately step up and indict the mutherfucker.
In any event, Trump is too effing stupid to be Speaker of the House. Can you imagine the chaos he would create, zigging and zagging 10 times a day as he makes every decision about himself? Having him as Speaker would be the punishment for the Represenatives that gave him the job.

24 hours and counting.... for August. Any reinstating seems more likely to be reinstate the results of the election with an even larger majority by Biden. I have lots of pipe dreams that I can reign in and realize that they will never happen. But no such luck for the master of orange and dumb and ugly.

Here's a little horrified giggle for us to start our day with. FatAss45 has a replica of the furniture from his WH days set&up . It isn't just the furniture, oh, no! Not with him. He is having pretend meetings surrounded by his pretend WH furniture and "staff.". Would someone please bring him some nice, soft apple juice, his Binky and blanky.
