Zeynep Tufekci, So What About That (Self)-Coup?
It’s absolutely plausible to me that even more Republicans would have joined this blatant attempt to overturn the election and that their base would mostly have been fine with that. The (self)-coup train wasn’t something that was just for show; it just wasn’t close enough to work this time.
Which is why there must be consequences on the Republican party. Either it needs to do some serious cleanup beyond Trump, or it needs to be further ostracized.
