Th coup is still active and ongoing, that's what all this state level anti-democracy legislation is about, making it easier to appoint your desired candidate no matter the electoral outcome, that is a coup.

It was and is a coup. Just because it was initiated and is still being carried out by incompetent lunatics doesn't mean it isn't a coup.

The ongoing coup has werked about as well as building the Wall or the trade war with China. We are just blessed that they are SO incompetent.

Those of us who were actually paying attention at the time ( - which was only a small percentage of Americans) could clearly see what was going on as it was playing out. It was obvioius (to me at least) that there was no way in hell that Trump was peacefully and obediently going to give up power. All the signs were there. The only thing that freaked me out was that more people were not freaking out. Trump was single minded in his determination to be a dictator like his buddies Putin, Erdogan and Duterte. There was no ambiguity. Again though, only if you were paying attention.

"It was and is a coup."

And it's not over. The perps and their leaders have been not held accountable yet and many still think they are going to get away with it.

Jan 6th was no big deal. And Trumpy still thinks he is running for President again and that will protect and shield him from being held accountable.
