Bill Maher: A losing Trump is going to have an army of well-armed ‘knuckle-draggers’ at his disposal

Published

In an appearance on CNN with host Fareed Zakaria, Real Time host Bill Maher turned serious and expressed real concern over what Donald Trump and his rabid supporters will do should he lose the election.

During the interview with the CNN host,  Maher was asked about Trump’s ramped-up rhetoric in the past few days that the election is “rigged,”with  Maher saying the GOP presidential nominee is lighting the fuse of a powder keg that could blow up post-election.

Asked what he thought Trump would do should he not win, Maher was succinct: “Not good things.”

“I worry about that,” he explained. “He’s got his knuckle-draggers all riled up about the fact that this is a rigged election.”

Trump true believers who find nothing he says or does deplorable essentially makes them a cult of personality, he continued.

“He’s got an army. Whats he gonna do with that army?… I think he’s gonna be the Che Guevara of deplorables,” the HBO host explained. “I think he’s gonna be a revolutionary out there. He’s gonna be a martyr to this loss and I don’t know what they’re prepared to do. They’re already talking about things like Second Amendment solutions.”

Trump’s psychiatric disturbance could destroy democracy if he wins a second term: clinical psychologist

Published

I’m not being hyperbolic or melodramatic when I say that democracy itself is on the line on November 3. Donald Trump has been on a mission to subvert our democracy and to push it toward an autocracy. No president has ever disavowed democracy like Trump. No president has ever wanted to change our democratic way of life like Trump.

Trump has shown little interest or intent in following our Constitution. He is not abiding by the emoluments clause. He breaks norms and rules at will. He does not recognize that the three branches of government are co-equal. He operates as if the executive branch has total power. Our democracy is not based on the executive branch having absolute power. It requires that the three branches have separate powers in a check-and-balances system. Trump impugns democracy because it limits his power and requires him to be held accountable.

"You weren't investigating a crime, were you?" Graham asked Yates.

"We were investigating a counter-intelligence threat," Yates responded.
