How would Repugs reacted if Trump had lost?

OK, I get it. We lost. To the victor goes the spoils. (That doesn't mean we have to accept it.)

But just for fun, I started trying to think about what crazy things the 'pugs would done, said or believed (conspiracy theories) if Hillary had won.

For starters, it would have been Obama's fault. That would be a no-brainer.

And, of course, it would have been because of millions of non-existent illegal voters.

Use your imagination and have some fun.

1. "The election was stolen"

 

Is the premise they would start with. Voter fraud, and so forth.

And Trump would have said some of the crap he has said since.

13. We are closer than many people think. Gun sales

are going up to even liberal groups, who are afraid.
Families are very divided. It causes tension among friends, former friends now. We fight over silly things that we don't even care about because we are outraged at the other side.

14. I see that on TV and read it

but even though I live in a red county people have not yet said much to each other. I know it is going to boil over at some point in the future though. It is waiting but it is there.

16. No one sought out to plan the civil war. Civil wars usually

Start gradually. Tensions simmer, then an event ignites. We are already on edge, politically and with each other, our friends, family, neighbors on the other side.
Right now, one good thing, is I do not think the military would support DT. The military seems to be aghast too.
Now, he is obviously destroying the CIA before it rats him out.
If this were happening on Hillary's watch, the right would be taking our scalps.

15. Sounds like mine...maybe we are related.

They wished someone would shoot Obama, and I am sorry to say I would not be sad if DT tripped and fell on his open carry permit and whatever he is carrying. For him, it probably is good that he hired his own protection because the Secret Service might decide to be patriots, which I guess he knew. I think in 8 years without a change of direction, we could see it.
I still dont own a gun though.

4. No one believe that Trump had a shot until about 9pm EST 11/8/16-SNL did a skit on it

 

Up until that point, it was Hillary. The U.K. bookies even paid out winners.

I recall watching Chuck Todd and the Florida count. Florida was supposed to slam the door, with Trump conceding by around 10pm. Chuck looked puzzled and said that she still had a path to victory in Florida but it was narrower.

I agree. Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan would have started that immediately.

17. That creepy slime is finally getting a viable challenger

A woman, MD, I think. I watch him every election, and he has not had a viable opponent. I will work hard for his opponent . I don't live in Utah, but I love their parks. Chaffetz and many people there want to roll back federally protevted lands.

10. You know, as dangerous and terrible as the current situation is...

In the long run, it may be better that Trump is president with a Republican congress rather than Clinton with a Republican congress (which evidently we were doomed with as that Democratic landslide never occurred). The latter scenario would have been non-stop attempts at character assassination and political witch-hunts. The media would have played along as they did during the campaign and the whole bullshit "Dems are corrupt" narrative would be furthered. Any attempts to investigate Trump's Russian connections would have been portrayed as abuse of power by the Clinton administration.

Now, the fact of total GOP corruption will be laid bare. Sadly, it's going to take a lot of pain and suffering on the part of the American people before the backlash begins...and successful pushback isn't guaranteed, but the ball is in their court. They have nothing but policies that shaft the American people and shady foreign connections... the only thing that will keep them in power is maintaining the propaganda...

11. Very good...

I wouldn't say it's better, but it is good that Trump (and the Repugs) will (hopefully) be fully exposed. I kind of think it'll take two years (not till at least the next election) to get anything done. I doubt the GOP twerps will do anything, no matter how bad it is. Maybe I'm wrong, but ...

18. Agree. The Repubs won't do anything, ratting themselves

out would be the result. Turtleman was lying so much today about the intelligence agencies. He isn't even a good liar, but as long as he's stalling for the Repubs, they think he's doing a great job. For those lying, immoral bastards, he is.

12. I feel the same way

I feel extremely pessimistic, but it is because the Republicans are so effing bad and horrible.

19. If Hillary had won the EC, but lost the popular vote to Trump by 3 million,

I honestly think we would have gone to the brink of civil war, and possibly over it. He even said before the election that he would not accept such a result.
