United States presidential election of 1876. Don't know why this is coming to mind.

From the Encyclopaedia Britannica: United States presidential election of 1876, disputed American presidential election held on November 7, 1876, in which Republican Rutherford B. Hayes defeated Democrat Samuel J. Tilden. Tilden led Hayes by more than 260,000 popular votes, and preliminary returns showed Tilden with 184 electoral votes (one shy of the majority needed to win the election) to Hayes’s 165, with the 19 electoral votes of three states (Florida, Louisiana, and South Carolina) and one elector from Oregon (originally awarded to Tilden) still in doubt. The U.S. Congress subsequently created an Electoral Commission, which by early March 1877 had resolved all the disputed electoral votes in favour of Hayes, giving him a 185–184 electoral college victory.

Pro-Trump forums erupt with violent threats ahead of Wednesday’s rally against the 2020 election

Far-right online forums are seething with references to potential violence and urging supporters of President Trump to bring guns to Wednesday’s protests in Washington — in violation of local laws — as Congress meets to certify President-elect Joe Biden’s victory.

Many of the posts appear to be direct responses to Trump’s demands that his supporters pack the nation’s capital in support of his bogus claims that November’s national vote for Biden resulted from election fraud. Congress’s largely ceremonial role in confirming Biden’s victory has emerged as a catalyst for expected unrest that has D.C. police and the National Guard deploying on city streets to quell potential trouble.

Talk of guns and potential violence is rife on the encrypted messaging app Telegram, the conservative social media site Parler and on thedonald.win, an online forum that previously operated on Reddit before the company banned it in June after years of racism, misogyny, anti-Semitism and calls for violence.

Looks like they are setting up a big “voter dump” against the Republican candidates. Waiting to see how many votes they need?

Washington(CNN)Former President George W. Bush will attend President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration, and former President Jimmy Carter will not, their respective representatives said Tuesday.

Bush and former first lady Laura Bush will attend the inauguration, according to Freddy Ford, Bush's chief of staff. The Bushes also attended Barack Obama and Donald Trump's first inaugurations.

"President and Mrs. Bush look forward to returning to the Capitol for the swearing in of President Biden and Vice President Harris," Ford said in a statement. "I believe this will be the eighth inauguration they've had the privilege of attending -- President Trump's being the most recent -- and witnessing the peaceful transfer of power is a hallmark of our democracy that never gets old."

Uh.... with everything going on, who's keeping the nuclear football...

away from the madman? Is he crazy enough to launch to punish all of what he perceives as insults to him?

No one should have to worry about a child blowing up the world. Setting here typing my thoughts gives me chill's!

Is there someone in charge to smack his hands or do I have a legitimate fear?

Add: with what is being said, that trumpy is being unstable. Who the hell is keeping the football?
