So let’s just ignore the people with their heads in the sand for a bit and all acknowledge that Trump clearly cheated to some degree to get elected. Let’s discuss what he’s done and what should be undone (if anything) both from a practical POV and from an idealistic POV.
Idealistically, everything he’s done and everyone he’s appointed should be wiped out and let go. Obviously that’s not happening because the alt-right has already threatened violence if they sense a coup and for some reason we are afraid of them(?).
But realistically what will be done and do you agree with it.
Some issues I see:
- Hillary’s association with Bill was a bigger liability than anything Trump did, so just because he cheated there’s no safe assurance that she would have won.
- Same above for the Comey letter.
- Just because Trump is illegitimate doesn’t mean some arbitrary Democrat/Republican should be appointed. But how far down does knowledge or complicity go in our chain of succession. If we hit Pelosi, the alt-right will again threaten violence.
I think realistically the only thing that should be wiped out are his judges. Gorsuch is already illegitimate due to McConnell and Kavanaugh is both morally unfit and unimpressive to conservatives anyway.
I think we should focus on the justices and nominate in a liberal to replace Gorsuch and a morally fit moderate conservative to replace Kavanaugh. The latter only for practical political reasons, not because it’s right.
If you think nothing Trump did should be undone, I’ll assume you believe he’s innocent of any electoral misconduct and will revisit your opinion when he is eventually proven guilty.
