What Trump could get away with, if he wanted to?

This is assuming that Mitch McConnell and the Republicans would do nothing to piss him off, just as they have done nothing up to this point.

Trumpism, after their defeat in November.

We cannot allow ourselves to think of the alternative. That is simply not an option for a majority of Americans. That does not mean it cannot happen. But, just as in 2016, it would not be something the majority of voters would agree upon. Trumpism must be defeated.

What happens when the numbers come in and Trump and his supporters are confronting a new reality?

There will be charges of cheating and massive fraud. They will find one example and let FOX News build it up as if it was overwhelmingly across the nation. That is the way they operate.

Trump will not retire to a life of an elder statesman. He will linger in the shadows, stirring up division and hate, just as he has done for the last 4 years. He will lead his minions in their revolution to "take back America".

As more and more facts are revealed about Trump's financial dealings, he will continue to play the victim to "fake news" and the "Democrat Party". His supporters will show up at events, with their guns and 2nd Amendment garb, to show their support for their defeated Leader.

No one expects them to go silently into the night. They will continue to flaunt the laws and pretend to be persecuted. Trump will cheer them on as they sow division and hatred within our country.

It is very likely that there will be violence and that people will be killed. Donald Trump will need to be held accountable. All investigations and charges against him will need to be pursued aggressively. He needs to understand that there is no Republican Party to save him. It is possible that they will be so divided that they can think of nothing but survival?

I would like to see a video of Donald Trump in a church house.

A real Church.

I'm sure there is one close to him.

It would be easy for him to go.

But, it is not the churches that are "essential" for Donald Trump, it is the people inside the Church.

If he could pull it off, it would be of great political benefit to him. He could show the people, his supporters in the Church, that he is "one of them".

I think it would be very interesting.
