It’s fascinating to watch the people expressing fears that Donald Trump will overstep his boundaries as president are the same ones calling for unprecedented steps to be taken to prevent him from becoming president. These are the same people who tried to pressure electors to vote Hillary over Trump, and renewed calls for the abolition of the electoral college.
The latest bit of insanity comes from “only Rosie O’Donnell,” who is calling for no less than the imposition of martial law to prevent Trump from taking office. According to The Blaze:
Imposing martial law, which means the military would seize control of the government, is necessary in order to block President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration, according to TV personality Rosie O’Donnell, a longtime adversary of the billionaire businessman.
I FULLY SUPPORT IMPOSING MARTIAL LAW – DELAYING THE INAUGURATION – UNTIL TRUMP IS "CLEARED" OF ALL CHARGES https://t.co/fUn8FZ8RTj— ROSIE (@Rosie) January 12, 2017
O’Donnell made the statement in response to the continuing reports surrounding Russia’s potential interference in the U.S. presidential election. The president-elect should not be sworn in until the Russian issue is fully investigated, she added.
delay the day – do not swear him in until it is investigated – for the love of god america – we must stop the inaugruation @frankielucy— ROSIE (@Rosie) January 12, 2017
It’s no surprise Rosie opposes Trump’s presidency — a man she’s feuded with for over a decade.
Back in September, she joined the chorus of those stating that Trump would “never be president” after he defended past comments about her. It goes without saying who got the last laugh.
