A respected D.C. newspaper, Washington Post, headlined: DONALD TRUMP COULD REFUSE TO CONCEDE. Is anyone seriously shaking in their boots over this paper-selling headline? Are there older men sitting in tea rooms nodding at that possibility?
Guys, Civic 101 is recommended.
The succession of any election is determined by the vote count, not by the guy refusing to leave the office by not conceding.
So what if Trump doesn’t concede?
Unlike dry-rot or termites, Donald Trump will be easily removed from the White House by the Secret Service, or SEAL Team SIX, or D.C.Police, or Girl Scouts of America, or Hillary Clinton, because (quite simply) Donald Trump will be trespassing.
If necessary, they’ll just grab him by the pussy and drag him out.
Think he’ll call Putin to set up cannons on the lawns around the White House? Try and get the military to intervene? Chain and lock the front gate?
If he stalls, he could miss his last Air Force One flight back to Mar-a-Lago, and then have to fly out of D.C. on a commercial plane, wait in line, go through a security check, show identification, and sit right next to complete strangers.
Hopefully, Biden will have the presence of mind to hire a Mariachi Band, dressed with complete splendor, wearing sombreros and serapes, (but playing slightly flat) to accompany Trump out of the White House, and to the waiting Marine One helicopter. The Band will then beat the helicopter to Andrews Air Force Base, sirens blasting, to greet and play Trump off again to Florida.
Be Best will have already split the scene.
