I'll be honest...I don't actually know HOW that works exactly.

It doesn't work.  My mother has been convinced of the same thing at times.  It's half feeding the insane base/half about demoralizing us.

WP had a quick article but what Trump and can’t do if he calls for Martial Law—there’s nothing he can do to change the election.  

Force a revote?  Like my black ass is gonna go out in the cold to vote for Biden again.

Basically calling the military would be a full on coup—and not one Republican is down for that.

Oh, there are more than a few republicans that would most definitely be down for a military coup in this country.

Buildings around the Capitol have been evacuated (at least one bomb threat). Trump supporters are apparently trying to storm the Capitol building from two different sides now.

I don't think it's only theater. By itself...maybe? But it's all part of actions that serve to dangerously weaken how our government works, is elected, and recognizes lawful winners.

Frankly, I expect 2024 to be worse than this.

I mean, Trump's entire political campaign/career is just theater that got way out of hand. It's still been enormously destructive.

As this prediction comes from someone who saw firsthand the complete shitshow that resulted from a 73-73 tie in an electoral college vote, it frightens me.

We're getting news reports that Trump fans are storming the Capitol. Is this true?

Yes, it's true that you are getting those news reports.

**It is also true that is what is happening.

Yes, at least one made it into the Chamber.

So what exactly is the goal for these morons? They got inside Congress, they posed for pictures, and got to be on TV. Now what?
The vote is going to continue, Biden is getting sworn in, and you assholes are still going to be upset, nothing is going to change.

Put her in charge of the DNC elections.  She seems eminently more suited to the role than anyone else the Dems have had recently.

This.  It's hilarious these morons are shouting 1776.  It's like that, except without less planning and leadership, and more drunken shennanigans.  Some of those pictures are fucking gross and they're going to be chief proof why no one in the world will respect us.  This is on every single Republican. Every single one of them.

Has the U.S. government lost control of its own seat like this? Not since the British took Washington in 1814, as far as I know. I’m glad I live across town from the Capitol.

For me, it was a Tuesday.

Sorry, was 3 days before Trump’s inauguration particularly significant?

Basically, but somehow what he came up with sounds even less presidential.

Gov. Wolf of Pennsylvania calling out Republicans there for their bullshit:

“They claim to believe that Pennsylvania’s election was compromised and that our electoral votes are suspect. This, of course, is a shameful lie. The very democracy these lawmakers swore an oath to uphold is at risk here.”
