For John, BLUF: President Trump has a large following, but that following would not overthrow the Constitution, even if Secretary Hillary Clinton were to win the Electoral College in 2020. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Here is the sub-headline:
The situations all seem far-fetched, but the president's comments have people chattering in the halls of Congress and throughout the Beltway.
From Politico, by Reporters Natasha Bertrand and Darren Samuelson, 21 June 2019.
Here is the lede plus one:
In 2016, Donald Trump waffled over whether he would accept the election results if he lost.This, from the crowd that has yet to accept the results of 2016. While I have no faith in the words of Barrister Michael Cohen, what the Reverand Jerry Falwell, Jr, says makes some sort of sense. But, mostly I put this down to the chattering class (1) having no sense of humor and (2) having no interest in doing journalism and thus just make stuff up. This is just rabble rousing and the rabble are the TDS Democrats.
Since then, Trump has repeatedly joked about staying in office beyond the two terms the Constitution allows. Jerry Falwell Jr., Trump’s most prominent evangelical supporter, has suggested Trump should get two years tacked on to his first term as “pay back” for the Mueller investigation. The president’s own former lawyer, Michael Cohen, has warned that “there will never be a peaceful transition of power” should Trump fail in his reelection bid.
This isn't Europe, Asia, Africa or Latin America.
