Anyone following the Kentucky Governor's race?  Matt Bevin (R) lost by around 5,000 votes but is refusing to concede and challenging the election, claiming fraud etc etc.   Has to suck when all that gerrymandering and voter suppression doesn't work out.

 

Anyway I think it's instructive of what to expect if Trump loses the election, or is no longer allowed to run.   Finding (or manufacturing) an excuse to declare a national emergency also seems possible.  He's already stacked the judiciary with his people so no relief there, and the constant "both sides" argument will excuse just about anything.  It's straight out of his handler's playbook; continuously accuse the opposition of whatever wrongdoing you have planned so as to normalize the bad behavior in case you get caught.  "But her emails!" and so on.

If they win - they cheated!

 

If we win - they tried to cheat, but we overcame!

Either way, the important thing is for their base to think they are under attack.   This justifies whatever violent and/or criminal shit they do because it's "self-defense".

The last time the state legislation choose the winner of the election in Kentucky the winner they chose was assassinated.  Bevin should do well to remember that.

I'm not sure what he's thinking.  I heard the Kentucky GOP asked him to concede & he's highly unlikely to make up 5k votes from a "recanvas" as KY doesn't have any provision for a full recount.  The Republicans do control the Kentucky legislature but they're not going to hand him the election with that kind of deficit.  

 

Trump on the other hand has spent the last few years pandering to various violent fringe elements & at this point not much would surprise me from that camp.  He's already committed treason to get elected; nothing is beneath them,  I wonder what federal law enforcement thinks?  To me mob violence and/or some kind of domestic terrorism incident seems highly likely around the election.

No, he doesn't have the rabid following that Trump does.  The President's already inspired terrorist attacks, not much of a stretch to think there will be more as this gets uglier.
