Paranoid Joy Reid: Dictator Trump Might Refuse to Leave Office

 

Do you support Joe Biden as president?

 

REID: “Donald Trump has been [air quotes] joking about never leaving office pretty much since he took office, including as recently as last week.”

[clip starts]

TRUMP: Should we go back to 16 years? Should we do that? Congressmen, can we have that extended? You know the last time I jokingly said that, the papers started saying: he’s got despotic tendencies. No, I’m not looking to do it . . . I said, well wait a minute: under the normal rules, I’ll be out in 2024. So we may have to go for an extra term, okay? No, no: I’m only kidding.

REID: “What happens, in all seriousness, what happens if Donald Trump, who doesn’t believe in the constitutional norms or anything. He just believes in power and money for Donald Trump. If he just says, you know what? If I leave this office, I might get prosecuted in New York. I ain’t leaving. What would happen? He keeps on joking about it. But you know, dictatorships happen all over the world when the person who jokes about not leaving doesn’t leave . . . If [the congressional Republicans] have given up their own power and say he’s the king. Whatever he wants, he can have it. They’ll never, they would never vote him out, even if he said, ‘I ain’t leaving.”

OBEIDALLAH: “Donald Trump is how democracies die . . . If Donald Trump were to go out in the country and campaign: I deserve a third term, he will get the support of his base, and Bill Barr, the cover-up AG, will find some legal way to have an argument to at least get it to the Supreme Court and hope.”
REID: Right!

OBEIDALLAH: “And this should scare everyone who believes in our republic.”

KIRSCHNER: “He thinks ‘I’m pardoning war criminals. So if I have to overstay my presidential term, I’m going to call on the military and they’re going to rise up to help me.’”

JEAN-PIERRE: “The people who are watching Fox, the people who are following Donald Trump believe him. They believe what they’re hearing. They’re buying it, they’re consuming it. And so when Donald Trump plants the seed in their mind about oh, hahaha, I can have a third term, they believe what he’s saying. So if he ever decides to switch that seed and turn it into something real, they’ll just go into the street and they’ll say yes, you are supposed to have your third term! And so we are in a dangerous, dangerous place right now with our democracy, with our constitution, and Republicans are just clearing the path for Donald Trump.”

REID: “We have to start thinking way outside the box when it comes to Donald Trump. Let’s say that he refused to participate in the election, or the election comes into question. Let’s say on election night, it’s announced that Donald Trump won Vermont. And everyone knows that’s not possible. But somehow, because we had outside influences that get involved in the election, that is the way that he claims that he won the election. What can the public do about it if they believe that the election was not legitimate? Is there anything that the public can do?”

KIRSCHNER: “You know, it’s a tough question. The public, I think, has to hope that the institutions that will have to wrestle with those decisions, most notably the courts, will hold.”

  2. Real estate is very market specific and if you invest correctly, by city, geographical area within the city and even to individual neighborhoods and streets you can make quite a bit of money. Another great option is to encourage your customers to follow you on Twitter.
