I never thought, imagined a POTUS turning on half the country, with malice. He is a threat.

2. As far as a coup might go,

Is this going to be scorched Earth?

That's what I see if they military decides to go with Trump and do a coup d' etat. I am assuming that over 75-million people will respond with a huge and angry push back, even a national strike, possibly. There will be a revolt in that case and I really don't think that our military will break their oath, but I could be wrong. Would they really want to be involved in a possible slaughter?

All of this might be bluster. It does keep Trump in the picture. He may be desperate right now, but maybe he is delusional about the military being in his pocket. He is good at delusions.

3. He is good at

6. Thinking that is "best case" at this point. He will burn it all down if he can and join strongmen

club. I really think he feels entitled to be one and will stop at nothing to attain it.

5. I think he will do whatever it takes to retain the Presidential protection. His lfe is hell if he

leaves. I don't know how the military personnel will align. Pockets of support/ resistance? Depends who CO is I suppose and how influential they are with their troops? It does all come down to people and their character, their personal convictions and their oath to protect the Constitution. It's the ones that never took the latter seriously, led by a pathological liar (and that's considered good) that worry me a lot.

4. Esper was against using the military to quell civilian protest. He is now gone.

9. Exactly why it worked! No one thought this could happen. The Founders didn't protect against

a corrupt WH, DOJ, and Senate...all that was needed to someone to recognize the vulnerability and crime their way to it.
