The Trumpcoup 2020 team is working hard to convince people that Donald Trump has a chance of remaining President despite losing the election. Who are these treasonous dumbasses who would trade democracy for Trumpism? GOP traitors? Russian operatives? Who knows. What is important is to understand that everything on Trump’s Twitter feed is a lie. There is no #Pencecard.
Trumpcoup seditionists appear to like Stalin:
One media outlet has gone as far as suggesting that the #Pencecard is real and that Joseph Stalin knows how to make everything better. Yes, STALIN. Somehow, Joseph Stalin is being presented in memes as someone that Trump should emulate. How is this even happening?
Both of these popular MAGA memes are spread by disgruntled Trump followers who are willing to overturn the results of the 2020 election just so they can get their way. You would think that Russian trolls were behind this–oh wait! The best part of this controversy is that Stalin didn’t even say this–probably. Still, the GOP seems to need someone to look up to, even if that means sharing memes of sedition.
Why are we talking about Stalin? Only because he was quoted in reference to what the Trumpcoup nuts are referring to as the #Pencecard. The pro-Trump media outlet Rasmussen Reports seems to have Tweeted a quote by Stalin as some sort of justification for Pence to reject the electoral votes that Trump and the GOP would prefer did not exist.
What is the #Pencecard? Nothing. It is a pipedream cooked up by a desperate bunch of seditionists hoping to overturn the results of the 2020 Presidential election. Frankly, it is embarrassing, but Trump doesn’t care as he happily re-Tweets any conspiracy theory that favors him.
Sadly, Trump seems to have bought into the idea that Pence can just refuse to open electoral ballots from the states that did not vote for him. Yeah, crazy. The entire argument rests on the false assumption that certain states had illegitimate electors. Remember when Kellyanne Conway insisted that Trump had alternative facts? This is the kind of crap that she was talking about.
In an attempt to change the results of the election, the Trump campaign assembled an ALTERNATE group of electors in certain states. Yes. Alternate electors. Don’t worry, though. These votes do not actually have any legal authority. Congress might look at Trump’s alternative electoral votes, but both the House and the Senate would have to vote to accept them. That is unlikely to happen because Pence does not have the authority to reject state certified electoral votes. If it does happen? Well, then a coup succeeded and America is over.
Tricking Americans with alternative facts:
We know by now that that Trump’s strategy has been to cause doubt about everything and to make alternative facts seem real. That is why the memes of sedition are working and too many people, including a bunch foolish GOP Senators believe Trump’s lies . Trump and his helpers are doing everything they can to cast doubt on reality. How far they go is anyone’s guess.
