Are We Looking At A Coup?

I’m going to let readers consider the following and make your own conclusions.

Coup: A sudden and decisive change of government illegally or by force.

From Vox: Trump is Attempting a Coup in Plain Sight

“Joe Biden has won the presidency. But the current president of the United States, Donald Trump, is attempting a coup in plain sight. “I WON THIS ELECTION, BY A LOT!” he tweeted on Saturday morning. This came after he demanded that states cease counting votes when the total began to turn against him, after his press secretary shocked Fox News anchors by arguing that legally cast votes should be thrown out.”

[…]

“That this coup probably will not work — that it is being carried out farcically, erratically, ineffectively — does not mean it is not happening, or that it will not have consequences. Millions will believe Trump, will see the election as stolen.”

“Democracy works only when losers recognize that they have lost,” writes political scientist Henry Farrell.

As some of you may be able to identify, I have relatives that are certain this election was “stolen.” They are waiting with baited breath to see what their Dear Leader will do next … and will undoubtedly vigorously applaud his every action.
