    Planning a Coup that’s why his fringing all of Department Heads. They need to inactive the 25th Amendment now. Wake up People it’s in front of your face .

      Trump is Communist
      They literally don’t count votes of lower income citizens.

    • @Ash Roskell

    • @Ash Roskell I’m trying to figure out just where he would flee to. Apparently he owes much debt to foreign investors so trying to flee the U.S. to another country leaves him open to their judicial systems. At least in the U.S. he knows how to game the system, for what that’s worth. At some point it all comes to a head for him, so I guess it boils down to where he makes his last stand. NY-AG and the SDNY waiting in the wings, resistance is futile.

    • Trump’s desperation is escalating

      I believe we are going to see the 25th amendment and acted after Joe takes office. When we look at his recent press conference he stumbled and babbled incoherently and the media had to turn to VP Harris for answers. Mark my words but I believe we are going to see the 25th amendment enacted but it is going to be against Joe.

    The Trump wants to win hook or crook and pretty much he is the crook. Talk about Desperation and reaching for straws.This is so pathetic anymore. Well the Trump is too stupid to realize it. But as he continues trying to overturn the voters decision. The worst is going to get for him and the other Republicans that are enablers.Guarantee that there will never be another Republican president elected in the future.

  3. Clowns now…priests tomorrow. We have to make this far more difficult to even attempt.

  4. T rump is coup coup coup coup — and treasonously so if T rump wants Republican controlled states to disregard vote and appoint GOP electors in enough sates to give him the win — he is trying to steal the election from voters.

  5. Why does he look like the guy from dumb and dumber that died from eating that burger?? 😂😂

  6. This is how a dictator behaves. No other case can be made.

    If he orders these underlings to affect the election in his favour, he instantly becomes an enemy of your constitution.

    • He hasn’t “ordered” anyone to do anything. He has filed lawsuits not to overturn an election, but to get the actual and legal results of an election. Can you tell me why Michigan is refusing to certify their vote count? You do know that not one single state has certified the election yet right? Didn’t Biden promise not to claim he was the winner until every state had certified the election and a clear winner was confirmed in the last debate they had? You don’t have to like our president, but is it more important to you that Trump leaves the office of the presidency by any means necessary, even if that means going against the will of the people and fraudulently placing someone else there? Trump will and has won this election. He doesn’t have to steal it.

    • @Michael Spires wrong! Most are certified

    • Trying to get the MI legislature to throw the EC votes?

    • @Michael Spires Yes, he has. Do you even watch the clips you comment on? It’s been confirmed in others since this and now the spineless morons he summoned have changed their minds, in his favour, again. What a coincidence. Dunce.

    • @Jay Ess Yep.

  7. I believe the USA will dodge this bullet, but when we look back at this mess years from now, we (hopefully) will realize we came very close to really bad outcome that would fundamentally change the country in what would be unfathomable for the average American with no sense of history or knowledge of the wider world around them.
    End of the day, Trump is far worse than any radical, socialist democrat from the Obama years.
    Trump is Cancel Culture on steroids.

      If people bother to read some good quality educational books regarding the rise to power of the German NSDAP, then it is graphically obvious that Trump is following that same path …. And has the same sort of blind cult following of ignorant, over emotional people who are happy to accept simple lies over complex realities

  8. You need to get him out of the White House there must be someway to get them off sooner than th January in the new year America cannot handle to a month of this

  9. Picture the scene of his downfall.
    In his office, his staff look on wide eyed in horror; his old man’s white hair drips orange goo down one side of his tear stained face, it splatters onto the latest Covid death results on the desk Without his girdle his distended belly flopping. Shrieking as he furiously crayons red over the blue parts of an election map, shouting hoarsely ‘I WON I WON’. The staff retch as he soils himself from the sudden shock of seeing the gasmask wearing Secret Service officers. They cuff him and drag him backwards.
    The action continues.
    His sobs echoing down the corridor, ever fainter, his most loyal staff at once begin discussing who the next term’s candidate should be. Knowing they need the same toxic malevolence to mesmerize the base, but in a younger, more attractive package, someone suggests Ivanka. As she steps forward, Don Jr flicks the now wingless butterfly body onto the pile of papers marked DONT PAY as his jealousy rage explodes. He hurls himself at Ivanka who just manages to pull a hidden knife and sticks him in the heart as he snaps her neck back with his momentum. The chief of staff looks at the scene then catches his reflection in a mirror. As he perfects his most ‘Presidential’ pose a smile spreads. ‘The problem is sorted’ he says as Kanye West begins to play on the radio…

  10. Isn’t election tampering a crime? Why are the top Democrats being so silent on this?

    • Because Republicans run the senate. They’ve got no power.

    • Because its the democrats trying to steal the election. Wake up man.

    • Election tampering is a crime. It’s a felony. Biden has correctly stated that this is a job for the DOJ and he will not be personally involved with the issue. That is not his job.  
      Any legal matters are, by law, run thru the Department of Justice.
      For any of the Democrats to become personally involved with any possible prosecutions run through the DOJ would be illegal.  
      This is like the obstruction of law issues that the current President can be charged with after he leaves office

    • Exactly! They should be out there informing everyone what he’s trying to do. It’s a huge mistake to take the higher road on this one. Trump and his enablers can possibly steal the election and if that happens our democracy is over and people need to understand this. If those Republicans saw nationwide anger then they would think twice before giving him his own electorates. If that happens we the people would have to rise up, stop working and surround dc until he’s removed.

  11. One Term Trump is a…….
    _C O M M U N I S T ! ! ! ! !_

    They don’t count votes

  12. I keep hearing leaders say the word “coup” regarding Trump. America does not yield to coups. The Republic will not be held hostage. Fear not and have faith in God and the men and women in place to protect our democracy and her people. They are the best in the world. Believe. Shalom.

  13. If a president/head of state was hunting down democracy in Russia, Belarus, Turkey, Iran or Iraq or any other dictatorship country you might not even reflect on that with more than a “well, ok those are dictatorship bs countries”..
    But now the world’s biggest country is heading to dictatorship mode..

  14. What’s happening in Michigan is definitely not a game. Let’s call it what it is. Election/voter interference. Same with Graham and Georgia. Both are crimes.

  15. The are. It just clowns, the are evil clowns. It’s the Joker, The Riddler, The Penguin and others escaping from the Asylum kind of crazy.

  16. What Powell, Guilliani and Trump are doing is nothing less than an attack on the USA, an attempt to destabilize the country in favor of other countries. Isn’t there any law in the US that is applicable to investigate against these three for whatever? You get a speeding ticket easily but attacking a whole country and destabilizing it is without any consequences?

  17. It’s time for an “intervention” by the Secret Service.

    This malignant narc will not stop at legal maneuvers, when they fail he’ll activate his next 2-stage plan and he won’t stop with DOMINATION of the USA if that is successful. You can bet he and vlad have already divvied up the world the world theater and vlad can bet his bottom ruble drumpf will stab him in the back too

  19. It’s terrifying that the only reason Trump can’t throw a coup is because his people are incompetent…

    • Well look at the state of the country. He destroyed it. He ignored a pandemic. He has a cult following. He’s pure evil. A child that can’t take a loss and wants to payback the incoming president by not conceding. He said he knows he lost but he’s going to make it hard for the new administration. Whose he hurting?! The country is at risk for many things right now.

    • No that part is a good thing. It means competent people are refusing to go down this path.

  20. Trump is at it again attempting to alter or prevent witness testimony.
    This action does not actually have to be completed to be considered criminal.
