What if Trump Refuses to Leave Office if He Loses

I’ve been fairly concerned about this for the past year or two and we could be in for a really bumpy ride:

I’m not trying to be an alarmist here, but it’s possible to imagine, come January 20, that we don’t have a president. By the terms of the 20th Amendment, Trump ceases to be president at noon on January 20 and [Mike] Pence likewise ceases to be vice president.

At this point, by the terms of the Presidential Succession Act of 1947, the speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, could become acting president, but only if she resigns her House seat. But what if Trump continues to insist that he has been reelected and is the rightful president? Imagine if, come January 20, Trump stages his own inauguration ceremony with Clarence Thomas issuing the oath of office.

Then we might have Nancy Pelosi and Trump both claiming to be the commander in chief. This is a world of hurt.

As county’s coronavirus cases soar, expert says rapid reopening may be to blame

Ya think????

With 1,682 confirmed COVID-19 cases logged in the first 10 days of June, the county is averaging 168 new infections a day — double the average number of daily new cases in April when only essential businesses were open.

While Gov. Ron DeSantis insists the county is unique and state health officials are trying to find out why it is bucking the trend, reports from the Florida Department of Health show that cases have skyrocketed throughout the state since businesses were allowed to reopen last month.

The 11,208 cases that have already been tallied in Florida this month are nearly half of the 22,473 that were reported in the entire month of May. And the numbers are continuing to grow.
