With the 2020 election just around the corner, the expectation is that the vitriol and the rhetoric in Washington DC will soon explode into some orgiastic mess of muckraking and mainstream malfeasance.
This is, after all, “the most important election of our lives”, all because the infotainment industry has told us so. This is the big one. It’s for all the marbles, and the kit and the caboodle are both present.
This gravity has only served as a catalyst for nonsense, however, with the Democratic left now attempting to convince the rest of the nation that Donald Trump is some sort of dictator in waiting, and that he’s simply going to refuse to leave office if he were to lose the 2020 election.
The list of liberals pushing this conspiracy theory is growing by the day.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) tweeted an article from Politico in which Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said that America needed to plan for President Donald Trump’s refusal to leave office, under the assumption he loses the election.
Schumer added approvingly: “This is important: I’m standing side-by-side with @SenSanders to make sure we have a plan if President Trump refuses to leave office.”
But it seems as though this is all just hype and hyperbole.
President Trump has already said that he would leave office and go on to do “other things” if he lost the election. Yet his opponents have spun a conspiracy theory in which he would refuse to accept the election results. As Politico reported:
Sanders is planning a series of actions aimed at raising awareness of the possibility of Trump resisting leaving office if he does not win. The senator will give a speech on the issue in the near future, and send an email to his massive list of supporters about the topic on Friday.
“What we have got to do in the next two months is to alert the American people about what that nightmarish scenario might look like in order to prepare them for that possibility and talk about what we do if that happens,” he said.
According to an embargoed copy of his coming email, Sanders is planning to state, “This is not just a ‘constitutional crisis.’ This is a threat to everything this country stands for.”
The left’s escalating rhetoric on Trump has likely led to this mess they’ve gotten themselves into.
After all, where do you go with your talking points after you’ve spent the last three years insisting that the Commander in Chief was on par with Adolph Hitler?
