The hosts look back on all the many crises Donald Trump’s behavior was expected to yield. And while his behavior is doubtlessly dangerous, it has not produced the kind of perilous legal circumstances Trump’s critics feared. Also, Abe Greenwald posits a unified theory of protest movements.

    It wasn’t dangerous, but at least you pansies now realize all your fearmongering was empty.

    Too late for the nation, though. Congratulations on your brain-addled President-elect. Enjoy him. You helped pull him across the finish line.

    Wow. Pansies, huh? Does this also apply to those of us who were less than enthusiastic in our support of Trump?

    Were you as fearful as they were?

    Then, yes.

    In 2000 Democrats tried to get Republican Electors to be unfaithful.  This is not a new breaking of norms.

    Poor Norm, has been violated more than (insert your own joke here – mine all violate CoC) …

    There is a deep state in the US – to deny that is just plain delusional. There is an inertia to the government policies – made up of the middle managements of departments, of all these people that work day to day to advance their own personal careers and agendas.

    To challenge the results of an election is not a coup. Its making sure that appearance of impropriety is just an appearance not actual misconduct. The conduct of this election has every appearance of misconduct.

    Do you guys not remember that Trump is a little bit rich, and owns his own airplane(s)? IF he wants to fly off on his own plane and hold a rally somewhere that’s his own prerogative.

    IF the Biden Administration tries to change rules by executive order, they should be sued instantly to force them into the rule making process.
