Six months after the election, and supporters of former president Donald Trump are still, miraculously, somehow, clinging to the idea that he’s going to be back in office any day now.
A video circulating on Twitter shows one Trump fan providing “proof” that Trump is “coming back real soon” by citing a recent open letter signed by 120 retired US military leaders questioning the legitimacy of Joe Biden’s presidency.
“120 generals do not think Biden won fairly and it’s not right and he’s incompetent,” the man says in the video. “Trump has the generals behind him.”
The man rambled on, nearly incoherently, as he claimed that the military made this statement “so that when they take [Biden] out of there and arrest him, that he’s gonna…the public will know what’s coming up for Mr. Biden.”
“He’s an imposter. He’s a traitor. He’s a dummy. He’s a idiot,” the guy said, before adding that Biden is not a “legitimate president” if he’s the “real” version of himself rather than James Woods or Jim Carrey.
Of course, this rando’s claims that the military still supports Trump are not actually backed by the letter he cited, which was signed by retired military personnel. The active military remains in service to the country, which is currently led by President Biden.
But the fact that Trump supporters are advocating for a version of the country where our military removes the fairly elected president by force just to get their guy back in demonstrates not only how short-sighted they’re willing to be in order to get what they want right now, but also that the mentality that led to the siege on the Capitol is still running unchecked.
Either way, Trump’s not coming back, at least not in a random takeover as the military arrests Joe Biden.
Someone needs to find these guys a hobby that doesn’t involve the internet or guns.
