CNN’s Cillizza: If Trump Loses, He Won’t Go Peacefully


President Trump has often called CNN’s Don Lemon the dumbest man on television. For our money, that award might fairly be given to the network’s Jim Acosta, who stuns us on a near-weekly basis with his lack of self-awareness and his willingness to pander to the liberal idiots on Twitter. But to be honest, both of them have some pretty fierce competition from their colleague Chris Cillizza, who is known for some of the dumbest, base-level political commentary on the internet today. And if we’re judging purely by each of these morons’ latest screeds, then Cillizza wins the award by a mile.

On Thursday, Cillizza published a ridiculous piece suggesting that if President Donald Trump were to lose in the 2020 election, he would called the results a scam and simply refuse to leave the White House.

Cillizza builds his case with the following three quotes.

The first from Trump: “The Democrats in Congress yesterday were vicious and totally showed their cards for everyone to see. When the Republicans had the Majority they never acted with such hatred and scorn! The Dems are trying to win an election in 2020 that they know they cannot legitimately win!”

The second from Trump’s campaign press secretary Kayleigh McEnany: “These desperate Democrats know they cannot beat President Trump in 2020, so instead they have embarked on a disgraceful witch hunt with one singular aim: topple the will of the American people and seize the power that they have zero chance at winning legitimately.”

The third from White House press secretary Sarah Sanders: “They continue to be a group totally taken by small radical leftist fringe of their party and they’re completely controlled by it, they know that’s not enough to beat this President so they’re going to look for other ways to do that.”

Anyone with even a thimbleful of brain cells could see this for what it is: Trash talk. Trump is bashing the Democrats for their phony-baloney investigations and throwing a very good – and quite true – explanation for why they are behaving that way.

But Cillizza says it means this:

All of that rhetoric fits into a very clear pattern: Convince the Trump base that it is not possible for him to lose a fair and legitimate election in 2020. Thus, if he loses, it must be, by definition, illegitimate.

[…]

In politics, Trump’s inability to accept that he could lose fair and square is far, far more dangerous.

Michael Cohen, Trump’s former longtime fixer, said as much during his congressional testimony in front of the House Oversight Committee last month. “Given my experience working for Mr. Trump, I fear that if he loses the election in 2020, that there will never be a peaceful transition of power,” said Cohen.

Sit with that for a minute. And realize what it would mean if the sitting incumbent President of the United States simply refuses to concede he has lost in 2020.

Is Trump talking trash, or is he setting the stage for an unprecedented – likely violent – effort to remain President after being voted out of office?

Hmm!

Well, if we were to give Chris Cillizza the same sort of numbskulled analysis that he gives the President, we’d say there are only two ways you can read his column. Either he is a certified moron playing to a readership that is even dumber than he is…or he’s setting the stage for an absolutely massive amount of voter fraud in the 2020 election. Fraud that Trump will be unable to protest, because he has already been painted as a power-mad dictator.

Sit with that for a minute.

  1. If a democrat is fairly elected president in 2020 and congress remains about the same this country is doomed. No two ways about it.
    From the democrats track record the election will be rigged just like 2016. This time they will rig the vote count so far in their favor in so many places there will be no chance they will lose. Get ready for that. It is going to happen. 2020 will go down in history as the most rigged election ever. Dems will win and by the time all the court cases about it are over it will be too late. The Soros one world government will be entrenched and laws will be on the books and our country will be so damaged as to never recover. Freedom will die a terrible lingering death starting with that election.
    Then all the couch potato’s will look up from their bowl of slop and say “Huh, what happened?” Too late they will think maybe they should do something. Sad, but true.
    We have one chance, people. Slap some G.D. since into folks now!

    • If Trump loses it will be because of overpowering our voting systems with illegal immigrants. I hear now Wisconsin wants to give illegals drivers liscenses which means then they can vote. If republicans don’t start this instant to counteract what the democrats are trying to do there may be a unfair defeat. I’m sure he will leave with his head high if he looses knowing he did do good for our country while he could. If Dems/lefts win start praying extra hard for our country because they will destroy it. What amazes me is that there aren’t more dems/lefts out there that are educated and can figure out for themselves that things sound fishy. Research don’t take others word for things. Never too late to change party lines.

      • We need to stop and ask ourselves how we let the Democrat/Liberal Party survive as long as it has…I’m just not going to believe that they have any viable candidate, and yes I am including Joe Biden, even though he hasn’t cast his “hat in the ring” yet…who can defeat in any viable way President Trump…

        We need to make sure, come election time, that we have as many “White Panthers” as they had “Black Panthers” loafing around, and harrassing voters as they had when Obama was up for election…We need to use every slime-ball tactic, and weasel assed way of abusing voters as they do…

        We need to make sure every box of “ballots” that come into the voting stations to be counted are vetted for security, and done by regulations…that fiasco down in Miami-Dade, and Broward Counties in this years elections was startling, and out right out-rageous and any one even suspected of voter ballot tampering should immediately be questioned by both party’s regulators, not just some Democrat/Liberal biased Black woman who’s been paid off by one side or the other…

        Every vote should count, but every vote that is counted should be verified by both sides as a legitimate voter…no more 87,000 Illegal votes in Texas, or 58,000 dead people votes in Pennsylvania…If your not registered to vote, you should not be allowed to vote period…The old horse-shit that “my dog ate my registration”…isn’t going to cut it this time around…The State should send out ballots that equal the number of registered voters in the State…not hand out ballots on election day to voters who have voted “up the road” already…

        This time around, I think we as Conservatives need to “inject” ourselves into the voting procedure, and spend time making sure the procedure is fair and honest…THEN, if President Trump is defeated, and the outcome is verified fair and duly processed, as they do in every other Country with Democratic elections, then I will accept the Elections outcome…BUT ONLY THEN….

  2. On Thursday, Cillizza published a ridiculous piece suggesting that if President Donald Trump were to lose in the 2020 election, he would called the results a scam and simply refuse to leave the White House.

    something looks out of place….

    On Thursday, Cillizza published a ridiculous piece suggesting that if President barak obama and hitlery clinton were to lose in the 2016 election, they would called the results a scam and simply refuse to leave the White House.

    THAT seems more accurate!

  3. It is funny. Hillary lost and she and her supporters haven’t gone quietly. We hear everyday from her supporters trying to destroy Trump’s administration. And, Obama should have gone back to Chicago or Hawaii, but there he sits in DC raising money and plotting against the president.

    • Obama truly was a dictator…he by-passed Congress all the time with no repercussions; e.g., sending troops into Libya, giving $1.5 Billion to The Muslim Brotherhood (a proven terrorist group), . Obama’s Iran nuke deal which gave Iran nuclear warhead capabilities
      Obama knew about Hillary’s private email server
      . Obama IRS targets conservatives
      . Obama’s DOJ spies on AP reporters
      . Obamacare & Obama’s false promises
      . Illegal-alien amnesty by executive order
      . Benghazi-gate resulting in 4 deaths
      . Illegal Operation Fast & Furious which got an ATF agent killed and 150+ Mexicans
      . 5 Taliban leaders for traitor Bergdahl
      . ‘Recess ‘ appointments – when Senate was in session
      . Appointment of ‘czars’ without Senate approval
      . Suing Arizona for enforcing federal law
      . Refusal to defend Defense of Marriage Act
      NSA: Spying on Americans
      . Muslim Brotherhood ties and aiding and abetting with $1.5 Billion gift of taxpayer $$, 200+ Abrams tanks, and 20 F-16 Fighter Jets
      . Miriam Carey
      . Birth certificate fraud – obvious fake per retired FBI agents.
      . Refusal to prosecute New Black Panthers for interfering with voters
      . Solyndra and the lost $535 million
      Cap & Trade: When in doubt, bypass Congress

  4. chinchilla mazzilla gorilla –how you like big punch in your stupid face from big Samoan and big foot up your stinkin ass

  5. WHY SHOULD HE AND WE THE REPUBLICANS OF THIS COUNTRY-AFTER ALL THE CRAP THAT OBAMA AND THE CLINTON’S- THE SCHUMER’S AND THE PELOSOI’S OF THE LIST- DO YOU THINK FOR ONE MINUTE THAT THE REPUBLICANS OF THIS COUNTRY ARE GOING TO SIT IDLY BY AND JUST HAND OVER THE REIGNS TO THIS COUNTRY TO A BUNCH OF SOCIALIST AND MEXICANS ALONG WITH THEIR CARAVAN BROTHERHOOD YOU MUST BE SMOKING TO MUCH WEED. I HOPE YOU DEMONRATS DON’T THING WE REPUBLICANS ARE GOING TO FORGET ANYTIME SOON. JUST SIT BACK WATCH AND SEE- ITS GOING TO BE A BAD SITUATION- I SEE THIS COUNTRY UNDER RAGHEAD RULES AND MEXICO RULE IN LESS THAN 20 YEARS. I HAVE NO USE FOR ANYONE THAT GIVES A PERFECTLY GOOD COUNTRY AWAY TO A BUNCH OF EATING AND OVER BREEDING MACHINES THAT DON;T WANT TO WORK!

  6. After Obama, America was in the toilet. Trump turned it around. The Demoncrats big accomplishment is killing babies!

  7. I remember watching with my own eyes Trump speak during the 2016 campaign. It was when most people, including Trump himself, believed that Hillary would win. Trump called the election rigged. Only when he won was the “rigged” charge quietly dropped. Trump is not the type who will go quietly. If he loses in 2020 he will almost certainly yell “foul”

    • And he’ll have most of the milatery all the malitias and I’d guess 15 or 20 million Patriots willing to back him up.

  8. I agree with all 3 statements by the Republicans. Without lying, cheating and outright stealing an election how else could the anti-Americans so called democrats win an election is my question. If I had one wish for this great Country of ours it would be for all these Anti-Americans to leave and never come back. If our Constitution and Bill of Rights the way it was first written is not the way you want to live, get the heck out and do not come back. Nothing upsets me more than seeing these documents changed and for some people to not abide by our laws because they think that they are above them.

  9. The Republicans & Conservatives MUST retaliate against the MEDIA and Hollywood, they are causing damage daily, they are controlled by Soros and his Socialist associates who want to destroy the USA!

  10. When Hillary lost and Obama couldn’t keep pushing his agenda through her- he , Hillary , MSM, Hollywood and the crazies leftist in Washington DID refused to accept it.
    They with out skipping a beat were willing to break any law to take President Trump out of the white house.
    Claiming Russian collusion with President Trump, to win the white house.
    Problem is the Russian collusion was with deep state, Hillary, Obama, some in FBI, DOJ and heaven knows where else to manipulate the 2016 election for Hillary..
    I have a much better question for you , puke… What are you and the crazy bunch going to do when President Donald J. Trump wins reelection in 2020? will you ‘all accept it any better than you did in 2016 ?
    I didn’t think so.
    We will see more of the same deep state cheating, lies, and mob rule by the left as they did in 2016
    And that is a shame.

  11. Why does the American Right Wing accuse the opposition of doing exactly what the Republicans are doing? Over and over. It’s sickening. The American right wing is hurting the country, and its rhetoric is trash, trash, trash. That’s it.

  12. This guy is a blowhard idiot. I am absolutely sure President Trump will not be a vendetta driven as the current losers. They can’t stand it and have to oppose everything the president wants to do because if he did it would be the end of the Librocrate Party. Common Sense is not a attribute of the librocratic party. P.S. I can’t call it the Democratic Party any more that party has left the room.

  13. CNN, small wigs sit down at a table and plan how to hold back progress under Republicans, they discuss using their bad manners, and lying immoral ways to upset, take down and intimidate families, people who don’t agree with their rhetoric Socialistic agenda for America, land that they hate.
    Don’t judge how Trump will take a loss by how CNN and Hillary take a loss, cheats, cowards,and totally un American.

    Someone has to buy CNN at bargain prices before they just fold completely and put innocent people out of work. CNN Smells

  14. I would like to ease the angst that is bothersome for Chris Cillizza’s itty-bitty brain. When persons like the majority of the MSM clowns, especially CNN jokesters report or even mention the name of OUR POTUS, Donald J. Trump, they forget that he DID win the election for two reasons. Number one was the fact that he is NOT a politician but a very successful businessman. Politicians have placed themselves in the category of a rotten can of sardines. Unfortunately the MSM trolls followed their lead and became mouthpieces for the Anti-America liberal, socialist government processors that they have grown into since the Clinton era. The Media became the ‘Leaders’ as they would take to the air-ways and report the news as they wanted it to be. The media lied to us then denied any person the opportunity to tell the truth. Then came Donald J. Trump who did not quiver on the presence of the MSM trolls and called them out for the “Fake News” they have become known for. Now you have these media persons in shock because the Presidential candidate and his millions of followers do not listen to, believe or support the Media outlets anymore, causing their ratings to plummet. How dare we and that character Trump disrespect them! This fiasco ended when “WE, the American Voters & Supporters of Donald J. Trump selected him to be the POTUS & he is. As it stands right now we intend to re-elect him in 2020, if he decides to run again, so that he can continue keeping his most important promise to Make America Great Again. So there you go Chris Cillizza. President will be Legitimately re-elected. I think this might be of use to Jim Acosta, Joe & Mika, Don Lemon and all the other MSM fakes and snakes. We have it all in control. You can get on board with what the America people plan to do to save America or you can wallow in your self-made pity pool. If we or President Trump call you out publicly, take it as a notice that we will only accept respect & truthl. Your job is not rocket science. You sit in front of a teleprompter & read the news into the TV camera. Our family does not watch any of the MSM broadcast because we cannot trust anything they report. Then there was the incident in which Don Lemon, during a newscast instructed any loose cannon nut case that might have been watching that he thinks ‘ALL White Men and their White Sons need to ne KILLED’. Since I happen to have one of each, a white husband & a white son, I take that as a death threat to my family. I have requested that CNN immediately provide a statement from Don Lemon, saying that he made a really stupid statement and that he does not wish for anyone to be Killed. Then Lemon should be removed from his position since he made a reckless comment that may have already resulted in the death of even one white man or his son.

  16. yes–this clown is a ‘mo-ron’…and yes, there will undoubtedly be attempted voter fraud by the left.
    There is no good, logical reason for President Trump to lose–after all the 8-year O-HORROR-show did TO the country trying to bring the USA to its knees, President Trump has worked hard and succeeded in many ways to clean up the mess/devastation left behind….IN SPITE OF the opposition from the maniacs of the left.

  17. Hillary did not go peacefully. The democrats are still trying to win the 2016 election. They are judging President Trump by themselves. Voting by illegals is meddling in America’s elections. I cannot imagine I would be allowed to vote in other countries elections. This witch hunt by democrats to discredit President Trump in any way possible shows how desperate democrats are to bring about socialism. Would we already be a socialist nation if Hillary Clinton had won the election? Hatred for the white race makes me afraid for my children and grandchildren. Our family tries to go to work each day to support our families. We do not feel we have ever used anyone as slaves and resent being told we are/were? responsible for slavery. We believe people coming from other nations think all white people live lifestyles like the rich and famous. Not true. Not all white people are wealthy. In Tennessee many white people live a modest lifestyle. We cannot afford to spend money we don’t have which is what America is doing now. America cannot afford to provide food, shelter, clothing, free education, medical benefits, etc for the whole world. May God help our nation and give us wisdom in dealing with irrational thinking.
