Whoopi Goldberg sent a chill down Meghan McCain’s spine with a dark warning that President Donald Trump could be engaged in a coup against American democracy.
Trump admitted he would accept the type of foreign campaign assistance he has repeatedly denied getting during the 2016 election, and Goldberg said his words should serve as a wakeup call.
“It makes me nervous,” she said. “This, to me, is a prelude to a coup, this is how coups happen. People say, we’re going to let this go. No, that’s how this happens — you’re in a new country that you don’t recognize but you’re stuck in, and so I think that someone needs to be really, really clear about what it is to break the law.”
“If, in fact, he doesn’t win in 2020, this to me is — this is at least a trial,” Goldberg added. “This is at least a trial, you know.”
McCain sounded alarmed by her warnings.
“I just, I mean, when you’re talking about coups and things like that, I mean, it’s a really, like, dystopian idea, and it’s really petrifying,” McCain said. “That’s why the checks and balances should be in place right now.”
“We’re living it,” Goldberg said.

Following the visit, Grisham claimed Trump was "healthy" and "without complaints" -- a claim many found unlikely as the president has spent a good deal of time as president airing his many grievances.

Jeanine Pirro pushes conspiracy theory 2016 election interference ‘apparently’ started in Ukraine
The United States intelligence community is united in the conclusion that it was Russia that interred in America's 2016 presidential election.
But Fox News personality Jeanine Pirro said that 2016 election interference "apparently" started in Ukraine.

Pirro also said Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Geoge Kent is a "bozo."
