What a mess of an article.

Would he even care if Melania divorced him?  Or would it bother him that he's not the initiator?

Go ahead and declare Martial Law.

First, Congress has to approve it, which they won't. Second, the military is going to follow the Constitution, so after January 20th, they'll be taking Biden's orders, not yours.

I will just say this, while this will not happen (majority of service members voted for Biden) it would be hilarious if he did this and not only lost by bigger margins but also pissed off people so much they tossed a few senators to the curb.

However i assume he will try to rerun just the pres because people are morons (the dems would not just rig the presidental election)

But its not going to happen.

Probably. I like to believe he actually doesn't believe any of the bullshiat he spews, and if he gets divorced he knows the only women that will want him actually do believe all the bullshiat he made up. Then he knows he'd be stuck with an outright moron, because those are the only people who believe his shiat.

I'm still hopeful that on the afternoon of January 20th, Maddow tweets something along the lines:

Just wait until 2024 when the Republicans try to rig the election and find out it's not as easy as we made it look.

You know that every time there's an article where he's "considering" something, that thing basically ends up happening, right?

/granted, he'll do it in the stupidest possible manner and end up failing at it, but still.

Who decides which secret service staff the Whitehouse during the swearing in?  I bet most want that gig.
It is one thing to be known as being the one who protected a President, it will be a unique situation to cuff one.

"Grandpa, tell us again about when you protected the President and had to drag the old one out"

He'll ask the Mexican Army enforce it?
He'll get the election redone in 3 red states he won, claiming their results will take the place of AZ, GA, PA?
He'll task the Coast Guard with enforcing martial law?
He'll sign the order for it on January 21st?

I mean I know he's kinda a busy guy any more - getting older, plenty to do.  But can we explore the possibility of hiring Danny Trejo to drag Trump out of the White House?  I have trouble conceiving of anything more awesomely hilarious.  Properly decked out of course.  I want to see Trump's expression when he's got this standing outside on the lawn:

A military takeover of every part of the United States of America.

For no reason at all other than Trump thinks he should be king.

After a year of him pretending nothing is happening while the rest of the world is fighting a new polio.

I mean...What exactly does he imagine happens there? "Hey, Army, Navy, Marines, all you guys, I'm just going to be lord of all from now on. So like, jail or kill everyone in the existing government, then subdue the population. I'll be golfing. Yeah, your own families if they oppose me. No, no, it's not at all completely insane."

I think it would be doing exactly what TFA says. He declares martial law, tells everyone they have to run the election again, the states don't because that isn't how martial law works, he gets bored and Biden becomes takes over with martial law powers.

Hey, Americans, you've lost every single guerilla war you've fought. That's from the 1960s to now. 50 years of not being able to tell who the enemy is, or where they are. How will you tell who the Boogaloo Boys are and who the BLM supporters are? This is the kind of war you suck at, get your ass kicked, and that turns the Pentagon into billion dollar a day failure factory. All Trump has to do is declare martial law, and you have the worst track record of any country on Earth when it comes to dealing with what comes next. You haven't ended a guerilla conflict on your terms in decades, hell, you don't even now how to decide what a winning position looks like. You just go bankrupt instead, and crank up your debt ceiling.

You should come to Canada or go to Mexico. Jump the border and quarantine for a couple weeks in our basements. Let the Boogers and the soldiers fight it out without either sie knowing what their goal is. You don't need that bullshiat.

See when I said "I like to believe he actually doesn't believe any of the bullshiat he spews", it's because I'm hoping it was all an act. I mean, nobody can really be that farking stupid and incompetent, farking up for 4 years straight and doing the exact opposite of what is the best course in EVERY SITUATION.

I'm hoping that on the evening of January 20th he reveals in prime time that he has been method acting since the escalator to prove he's the best actor ever. (His character of course being the dumbest farker to be president).

OK so he declares martial law.

Then what?

How does that keep him in power?

Please don't get me wrong, declaring martial law is a way for Donnie to massively fark with all of our lives but as I understand it, the idea is this

1.) Donnie declares Martial Law
2.) THING
3.) Donnie stays in power.

But no one seems to know or have a desire to communicate what THING is. Much like the underpants gnomes of yore, the idea seems to be poorly conceived.

More to the point, there's not really a robust tradition of martial law in the US. Most of that was what happened during the Civil War, which famously decided that Lincoln's suspension of habeas corpus was unconstitutional.

Most of what Donnie could do under martial law is kinda what he could do now, so it's hard to see what THING could be, given that he could probably do it now anyway.

Maybe he could just declare Martial Law in red states and they can secede and we can finally be rid of them.

T. Greg Doucette points out that the military won't support this unless 1.) it's 100% certain that it will succeed & 2.) It's 100% certain to succeed until after they are dead

because otherwise it's hangings for everyone.

I'd like to add (& have been adding for a while) 3.) Success lasts until after Donnie dies because once Donnie dies there will be a power struggle & there's maybe a 50/50 chance any random soldier will wind up on the winning side of that power struggle & if they don't, it's hangings again.

In case you never noticed, dictators tend to be on the young side. Very few are septuagenerians when they seize power.

Martial Law is under the humanities section.

Science is the real Martial Artist.

We've been under Martial Law since the Soviet Union collapsed, we just weren't told.

Everything has been a simulation up until 1995. Then we went on Medici Martial Law right as Clinton left office to protect Democracy.

The rebuild already happened, we are just shuffling some mortals back in their coils.
