    Comparing those to is a bit of a stretch.

    The one thing you are right about is him trying to muddy the waters, make the election a mess, challenge everything in court and try and drag it out.

    But come 20th Jan, if he has not won an election victory, he's out.

    Even the 2000 election was done by December 12th.

    Maybe a delegation from Afghanistan or Iraq should go there to oversee the election and results to make sure it's fair. You know, just return the favour sort of thing.

    I seem to remember Private Eye running a similar piece back in 2000, only it was Bosnian troops offering to go in and restore democracy.

    Maybe so. However, the cult will remain, and the conspiracy theorists and Qanon'ers will only feel more emboldened. They're crazy, and they have a lot of guns.

    All true but only because a higher authority than the Army, though his silence, tacitly approved the coup and the subsequent rewrite of the Constitution. A Constitution that ensures the people have no power to oust the military government.

    Trump will and is trying to get support via an invalid election but his efforts will not work. Come January 20, 2021, the fool will officially be history.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    From the White House maybe, but not America. He will go back to television in some form or another, most likely a cable news channel such as AON network.

    He's the GOPs useful idiot and if the first part of that is no longer true and they aren't running interference for him then he could well be spending time in federally funded accommodations other than the White House should he lose in Nov.

    They will still need votes from his base. Offend them and they'll be primaried.

    When he is out of office, he will no longer be able to block and cover everything up. He may well be the first president to spend real time behind bars. Hence is frantic efforts to stay in office.
