From CNN's Jim Acosta.

There really is only one word to describe this - it's an attempted coup.

I've noticed Trump is very careful not to tell his followers what to do but instead to fan the flames. Even if he incites his followers to riot I don't see how that helps Trump to stay in power. I might not understand but it doesn't seem like he could successfully perform a coup without military support and they've already told him no. Maybe I'm not understanding.

"I've noticed Trump is very careful not to tell his followers what to do but instead to fan the flames."

I've heard that Charles Manson was like that.

Dumbf can dance naked in the streets of D.C. right now and it'll fire up his base, but it still won't get him any closer to #Winning.

Trump
”I hope the Democrats, and even more importantly, the weak and ineffective RINO section of the Republican Party, are looking at the thousands of people pouring into D.C. They won’t stand for a landslide election victory to be stolen.”

We’re to assume they’ll whip out their phones, en masse, and fire off a severe and not at all friendly text [And damn the message and data rates that may apply! Damn them!] to their representatives? Or something else? RollingEyesSmiley5

You gotta love how nobody showed up to play with them, so they decided to fight amongst themselves.

Yeah, there may be some times where the right thing to do is confront them, but in this case I think it's better to let them stew in their own putridness.

This was hotly debated amongst activist circles, and ultimately BLM-DC and its sibling organizations decided to ask people to stay home.

I think that was very wise.
