To Trump, how is it a coup?
He is in charge.
He doesn’t need to overthrow the government. He is already in charge.

As far as not believing the results if he loses, well, he will be escorted out in January.
The Secret Service will abide their oath over a desperate imbecilic man-child dictator-in-chief.

I have to believe that for my own sanity.
