Why This Historian Says a Trump Coup Is ‘Pretty Much Inevitable’

Why This Historian Says a Trump Coup Is ‘Pretty Much Inevitable’

Please read the article at the following link. I find that it seems pretty logical - isn't at all filled with hyperbole or hysterics - and is absolutely terrifying. Plus, it's what so many of us Trump denouncers have been worrying about since the campaign.

After reading, please point out anything that is not true. There is no question: if you're an avid Trump advocate, you won't LIKE what the article states. But, what about it is not true. There is a difference. Just because we don't like things don't make them 'fake.'

John Oliver. That spoke volumes. Accuse Trump of controlling the media, then using John Oliver. That pretty much blew up the article. John Oliver is a perfect example of what the left is doing and accusing Trump of trying to do.

Funny though that they agree it would be a coup. People have been saying this is a soft-coup attempt for months.

Can you do any better than attacking the messenger?

Trump should be impeached? On what grounds? Trump is a fascist, how so? This article is way over the top. Which is what I've come to expect from Salon.

I don't open links for fear of the dreaded Ukrainian malware that can steal all of my money leaving me destitute in the poor house. DTT is not FDIC. Trump vanquished web neutrality which does not protect me from a worm.

Yeah I sure can. I thought I would just act like a liberal on here for a bit. Anything else I can do for you?

Other than being a mediocre smart ass, you haven't done anything for me or anyone else on this thread, except for maybe tickling your echo chamber mates' fancies.

Here's my take:

Point 1 - Spot on. Trump has cultivated the idea that only he speaks the truth.

Point 2 - Spot on. We see it every day on DTT: Delegitimizing the media, “Whataboutism,” and trolling.

Point 3 - His leaving large numbers of appointed seats vacant supports this point.

Point 4 - The American Reichstag? We all know we could wake up tomorrow and see it in the news.

Point 5 - An external threat to boost internal popularity. We saw it with GW.

Point 6 - Speculation but not wild speculation.

Point 7 - Things to consider.
