Coup d’Etat

The other day Lt. General Michael Flynn went on Newsmax and spoke nonsense. According to the former general, who recently got a pardon from the president, the president should enact martial law and re-run elections where Donald Trump lost. Now, let’s be clear, this talk of a coup, of martial law, has been the biggest thing this side of crazy town in far-right fringe websites. It’s also circulated on more mainstream ones, even if this is a matter of degree. The president even considering it, according to the New York Times, is not normal.
