Most of America’s biggest fears were confirmed Sunday morning when Donald Trump refused to guarantee that he would accept the results of the 2020 presidential election and leave the White House if he lost during a contentious pre-taped Fox News interview with Chris Wallace.
TRUMP: "I think mail-in voting is going to rig the election."
WALLACE: "Are you suggesting that you might not accept the results?"
TRUMP: "I have to see."
WALLACE: "Can you give a direct answer that you will accept the election?
TRUMP: "I have to see." pic.twitter.com/mPDPLY9vsr

Former Vice President Joe Biden responded through spokesperson Andrew Bates, giving Trump’s un-American remarks all the dignity they deserved, pointing out that Trump would be behaving as little more than a petty criminal:
“The American people will decide this election. And the United States government is perfectly capable of escorting trespassers out of the White House.”
The United States could likely retire a significant portion of the deficit caused by the unjust GOP tax cuts for billionaires by simply making that video coverage of that momentous event a pay-per-view streaming special!
In the twitterverse, reaction to Trump’s declaration of seditious intent was swift and deeply negative.
Still, podcaster Bob Cesca outlined a very different scenario that could happen prior to any physical eviction notice served on the sore loser ex-president by federal marshalls.
Let’s make sure to defeat Donald Trump in such an overwhelming landslide for Joe Biden that Trump won’t be able to cheat his way to victory or otherwise claim some false narrative of a stolen election.
Too much hangs in the balance, and we don’t yet know this ends. Let’s just say that the possibility for disaster is involved in anything that Trump touches.
