Trump Is Planning Much More Reasonable Coup Next Time Says Election Law Expert


“It gives enough of an air of respectability that it could have been a very thin read upon which to say that Trump actually won, even though we know he lost,” says election law expert Rick Hasan on the “wacky” legal theory that Republicans are trying out.

#MSNBC #Trump #2024Election


  1. Never give up the power of your vote. Holdfast against those who hate the Constitution and Republic and are fighting to end the Democratic system of Government in America.

    1. Just a shame Dems are doing nothing to stop Republicans passing laws to allow them to throw out your votes and declare themselves the winner.

    2. ​@Adam Taylor It’s not that the Democrats are not doing anything… CONGRESS IS BLOCKING EVERY BILL THAT HAS BEEN INTRODUCED. Congress is the Law making body. We are about ten years behind in their lawmaking and planning. Plus Manchin, Senema/Dark Money. But, please don’t give up because these laws affects everyone.

    3. @Adam Taylor There is a voters rights bill before Congress, brought by the Democrats, the Dems in the Texas legislature are fighting hard to stop voter restrictions. Don’t give up the fight, it’s ongoing.

    4. @Gina Hickman they need to get rid of the filibuster and the electro college or we will not have a Democracy in 2022 !

    5. It’s already done, Republicans have already changed laws to take an election out of voters hands. Supreme Court will side with Republicans…. It’s already over for us.

  2. To me a coup is a coup, no matter if it’s soft, medium, or hard!! Whatever prefix u use…’s still treasonous!!

    1. @TheU2001 MIA let me send antifa over to your place with the same weopens they had and we’ll see if you still call them “unarmed” 👎

    1. McConnell and McCarthy are to blame for not convicting Trump, taken away his pension and never hold an official office again. But, we are little people, talking and yet nothing is putting Trump in jail. Do something now! Come on DOJ you have been comprised!!

  3. The proof of how dangerously close to it all pain is that they are comfortably planning a Repeat Performance so if they fool the police twice shame on them

    1. The police will not have rubber bullets in their guns this time..there isn’t going to be hand to hand combat!

    1. @midknight Hiya Midnight, isn’t there some chicanery or sedition portended for Aug 13, Black Friday at the Capital ???

    2. @Jack Reisewitz I don’t think Republicans have thought this through very far. They don’t seem to understand how a typical dictatorship works. If Trump ends up in charge, one of the first things he’ll do is eliminate any competition that threatens his position. Also, there won’t be a need for senators or representatives anymore so they’ll all be out of work. Of course, Josh Hawley might be able to swing a job as Trump’s Diet Coke runner.

    3. “A vote for the GOP is a vote to end democracy.” — You’ve got the makings of a great T-shirt there Michel.

  4. Gerrymandering erases people’s votes. Observe how other successful First-World Countries handle their Elections.

    1. I will be keep checking my name on the voter list 3 weeks before election so I have time to go to town hall and fix it. Don’t wait for the last min. RIH GQP.

    2. Are we a First World Country? About 30 percent wouldn’t pass a citizenship test in Papua New Guinea.

    3. @Mephistopheles Count Caliostro you do realise that your constitution is based off the Magna Carta, which a bunch of english lords created! Have you ever gone to school ?

    4. @GamerJay 66 I am not a yank and it was signed at Runnymead in,12 15 but the US constitution is more based on the bill of right of 1689

  5. This is what happens when Trump was not Arrested for inciting violence on January 6th. Now he and his sycophants got emboldened to do much worse next time. In 2024 Republicans are not going to accept elections results if they lose.

    1. @Belmondo Hello, Belmondo. Jeremy here and it is nice to meet you on here. I will definitely vote the big BLUE in 2022 next year. I feel the Dems are doing all they can, it is that it isn’t their fault they’re being blocked by Trump and his band of cronies. Just saying.

    2. @Kenneth Bugbee by Republican Senators that were so impartial they stated they were going to acquit before hearing any evidence… because that is completely valid – to a Trumpian fool of course.

    1. Putin, Kim Jung Un, Ordin – these reichwingers sure do love a dictator.

      Funny place for Tucker to want to go to though, and yet his supporters think it’s completely fine. I had one yesterday ask me “how” they’re embracing dictators – these people are so blind, they can’t see what’s right in front of their eyes

    2. All the GOP knows is how to be stupid like Trump, if they were smart, they would get rid of Trump, that’s a No Brainer.

  6. He was testing the system. Trying to poke holes in it. Next time he will have a much more targeted and planned attack.

    1. Trump is totally disorganised (read “I Alone Can Fix It”) but he is also easily used by those who are far more clever who pander to his enormous ego. That is the worry.

  7. This is the very reason that we need to get rid of the Electoral college, the good thing is that President Biden won both the popular vote and the electoral votes.

    1. @Pat Fox Would that that were true, but the people can’t vote to change the Constitution. First, an amendment would have to pass both the House and Senate, by a two thirds vote. And then it has to be ratified by two thirds of the states. I’ve been waiting, since I was a young teen, to see the ERA ratified, and I will die waiting. And that was just affirming that men and women are equal under the law. Considering the number of Republican presidents, who lost the popular vote, do yo really see Republican Congress people voting for the amendment, or Republican controlled state houses ratifying it?

    2. @UCcVoQgJd6S80V4_TIoiBclQ . 1 person 1 vote makes more sense. States don’t vote, people do. Watch the video or rewatch it. Cause you are just not getting it.

    3. @TheU2001 MIA So a person who lives in Los Angeles has less of a vote than someone in Wyoming? How the F does that work? Every person should have the right to vote and your vote should count just the same as mine. Even if I think you may be ignorant.

    4. @Deborah Freedman You are correct. Unfortunately. They did finally ratify the ERA. January 15, 2020. It took 45 years to get the 38th State. Thanks Virginia, for finally coming around. Getting rid of the Electoral college is going to take a whole lot of might and work. I don’t see States like Wyoming giving themselves the same power as every other person, if they don’t have to.

  8. I believe Hitler failed the 1st time. The second time the Germans were under his spell. The process is still in play.

    1. Yes he wrote Mein Kampf the years he was in prison. When he came out it was a major part in his propaganda of racist hatred and terror. He then got a group of thugs together and they attacked Jewish businesses and Jews and then burned down the Reichstag, their Capitol and blamed it on Jews and Communists . Nazis were a minority party but they lied, bullied and terrorized their way into power.

    2. @Kar Walker luckily when Trump is sentenced, anything over 2 years probably means he won’t be coming out standing up. He won’t then get a second chance.

    1. @L Jensen
      I hope he’s not around, either. I can’t wait for the day that I turn on the news & they say he croaked.

  9. It’s crazy that we go after any foreign threat against us but yet in our own backyard they’re letting a spoiled rich kid threaten democracy and doing nothing about it. R Congressman are practically saying whatever they want

    1. Highly respected Army intelligence captain, Seth Keshel, has just released his Report on National Fraud Numbers with respect to the 2020 Presidential Election. I don’t personally know Captain Keshel, but these numbers are overwhelming, election-changing, and according to Keshel, could be even bigger in that they do not account for cyber-flipping of votes. They show I won the election—by A LOT! Now watch the Democrats coalesce, defame, threaten, investigate, jail people, and do whatever they have to do to keep the truth from surfacing, and let the Biden Administration continue to get away with destroying our Country. The irregularities and outright fraud of this election are an open wound to the United States of America. Something must be done—immediately!

    2. Yes, the ones that have committed treason, should be executed by firing squad. Then the rest of the GOP, I think would straighten up,and abide by the law, or follow the same fate.

  10. everyone that voted to decertify the results knowing it wasn’t true should be kicked out of office for sedition.

    1. i thought that’s how it works???? defy constitution lose seat O.O am I missing something?

    2. Congress should force each of them to come and show us the evidence they used to base their voter fraud claims on.. like ok.. show us what you saw that convinced you? … umm we’ll see there were ballots under a table..I saw a YouTube video that billy bob patriot made and there were trump ballots on fire..
      then we can ask them to prove the covid vax is unsafe the same way.. we’ll see you take a magnet and … ummmmm

  11. It’s not about Trump anymore it’s about the 75 million lunatics that voted for him. That’s where the problem lies. Smdh

    1. Agreed.
      Which is why we must stop voter suppression before the 2022 elections.

      Repubs have already put in place 1950-style voter suppression laws by state, and wicked gerrymandering.

      We must fight it before the next election by making our voices heard collectively.

      Pass The ‘For The People Act’ Now!!!

      Preserve Your Right To Vote so that authoritarians like trump can no longer slither in to destroy democracy…

  12. The reason for the electoral college is to Prevent a popular vote for president which it does & to prevent a insane clown president like Donald Trump which it did not.

  13. Apparently Trump thought he could just shove Joe Biden out of his way like he did to the president of Montenegro. Dude seriously wants to be an Eastern European dictator in the USA. I have serious problems with that. You should, too.

    1. You are right. There is an alarming rise of Right Wing Authoritarianism in the world lately. Trump was to be next. He is just too much of a buffoon. The elected Republicans have totally tipped their hand, and it is plain as day to most of us. They want an Authoritarian Government. It works for them, their donors and Drumpf followers. They are going to find a smarter candidate some day, and they will not give up.
