Nov. 5, 2020, 7:30 pm EST. We must see what’s happening while it’s happening: With his address just now, the president tried to stage a coup.
Everything he said was a lie, obviously. He lies daily, all day. But these are among the most dangerous lies he’s ever told.
That’s because democracy can’t exist without trust in election results and without the ensuing peaceful transfer of power.
For the first time in our history—a history no one thought possible—we have a president who attacks democracy, who attacks America itself.
This sounds hyperbolic, but it isn’t. It’s the reality that’s hyperbolic. This description is simply accurate.
