Trump: I have the support of the police, military, and tough people who don't play tough... until a certain point, then it will get bad

I’m going to clap till my hands bleed when this mother fucker dies.
In fact I'm giving a preemptive fuck you to the people bound to say he should be mourned or forgiven or treated empathetically when he perishes. No one should try and recontexutalize Trump as anything but a fucking monster and one of the worst US presidents or general leaders of any kind when he dies.

Military generals and leadership are quite capable thinkers and often pretty opinionated. They won’t be issuing any statements at this point, because that’s how they roll. But if/when Trump loses in 2020, they aren’t duty-bound to follow any directive of his that breaks laws/norms/puts the safety of the nation at risk.
I have met 2 generals and several full bird colonels. Not a single one of them has ever not been a right winger. But Trump doesn't have to worry about 2020 elections anyways. Mueller report is not going to have the bite to harm trump. And even it did, Dems will fail to capitalize, like always. Low unemployment rate through Trump's term. Dems killing each other off with purity tests all the way to primaries. So on, and so forth. Trump is not going anywhere anytime soon.

He won't have enough support for a coup. The danger is more of what has already happened: Murders of journalists; synagogues shot up; cars driven into protesters; pipe-bombs sent to Democrats from Trump/MAGA vans; massacres planned by a coast guard officer; people beaten by neo-nazis and Proud Boys. With the President cheering them on, egging them on, inciting them! It's obscene, and in a sane country would immediately lead to his downfall.

Colonel Trumpeeto.



He so wishes he was a dictator, fucking loser.
Yep, and he constantly goes on about it. Just one example:
CNN:
In the closed-door remarks, a recording of which was obtained by CNN, Trump also praised China's President Xi Jinping for recently consolidating power and extending his potential tenure, musing he wouldn't mind making such a maneuver himself.
"He's now president for life. President for life. No, he's great," Trump said. "And look, he was able to do that. I think it's great. Maybe we'll have to give that a shot some day."

He's not leaving office on his own. He sees what happened in China and he admires the unchecked power of autocrats around the world. It's going to be great watching him forcibly removed by FBI agents.
Remove him by force if need. If his supports rise up with violence, categorize them as a national threat/terrorist group (because THEY ARE) and round up the racist, violent shitstains!

Un-fucking-hinged.

Just right you are. I've seen twats try and pull that one with Thatcher over the years but most of us would still happily dance on her grave if we could.

Lol the military hates Trump, as does the intelligence community and the FBI and Secret Service.

I mean, it's pretty funny that no matter how much Trump wants to be a dictator he made a good show of pissing off all the elements of society a dictator needs control of.

Minorities and White Leftists will fight the Right, while Democrats and the majority of their white voting base tsk us to hell and back about decorum. The latter will plead with us to wait until 2022 and vote in representatives who will come up with new laws that Trump will ignore.

"If you swing a bat in self defense, you're just as bad as your attackers. This is not the way!!"

Trump is their commander-in-chief. Are they actually allowed to disagree or disobey him? I imagine all forms of free and independent thinking were drilled out of them during training.
Lmao no. This is not Star Wars.

This dude gets clowned and eye-rolled in the break room quite often. Of course, you have to be discreet about it.

I always believed there was a fallacy in that way of thinking out of the sheer fact that to be as bad as your attackers would mean there has to be some sort of equivalency, and there is no equality. Those who fight against bad, evil people are NEVER as bad as those people. NEVER! The ones who constantly say "both sides" are the ones that would have you to stand down as the wave crashes into you.

I might be more on the cynical side, but I think democracy in America is very close to ending. All he needs is an election where a few tens of thousands of votes determined the win. He claims fraud and stays on the podium. Then what? He'll have 30% of the population, and nearly all Republican senators and representatives. The only people that could get him down is the military. Will they bring down the guy that wanted to give them a parade rather than someone who assuredly will slash their budget?

Id put the odds of a successful power grab at about fifty percent.

Plus we now have a case of documented election fraud where a group of true believers conspired together to alter ballots in North Carolina and swung an election to the GoP.

No way 2020 is free of organised election fraud.
