EDITORIAL:      An American Coup d’Etat?

 

Coup: A seizure of power

The Democrats current attack on the President, very quietly supported by more Republicans than are willing to admit their position, seems so clearly manufactured and self-serving as to approach the definition of a farce. However, there is nothing farcical about setting aside the U.S. Constitution for political gain, and that, it seems to us, is how the present hijinks add up. The attack on President Trump is a tacit rejection of the election without evidence that it was not valid. Refusal to accept results of a valid election is repudiation of constitutional government. Apparently, these folk believe that they, not the American voters, are entitled to select their president
