It's gone beyond ridiculous to see Trump haters like Mr. Bass continuously whine about how President Trump will cause Armageddon, after Mr. Obama has done his best to ruin civility in this country. Trump is simply doing what he said he would do and 65 million of us voted for him. Whereas Obama said he would change the U.S., which he did, for the worse. Obama had eight years to screw things up without anyone threatening violence or a coup. So how about let’s see what Trump can do in eight years. It couldn’t be any worse unless the coup succeeds and we have a second civil war.
