Donald Trump kicked off his Saturday morning on Twitter with a simple attempt to promote the hashtag #StopTheCoup but didn't get many backers.
But he did get a lot of derision and explanations about what a "coup" really is -- along with inspiring the hashtag: #ThePresidentIsACrybaby.
As one commenter noted, "Holding the president* accountable for his actions isn't a coup... it's their job. "
That was the general response, see below:
