Trump Declines To Commit To A Peaceful Transfer Of Power | Rachel Maddow | MSNBC

what wouldn't he do try to narrow it down try to put your finger on it what is the thing that you can think of that might conceivably be used to keep this president in power that he wouldn't do even if he had the chance what is the thing that is a bridge too far something that could work to keep him installed as president but he wouldn't resort to that because it would be too bad for the country it would be too extreme where do you think the line is where do you think his his limits are will you commit to making sure that there is a peaceful transferal of power after the election well we're gonna have to see what happens you know that i've been complaining very strongly about the ballots and the ballots are a disaster and but people are rioting do you commit to making sure that there's a peaceful transfer we want to have get rid of the ballots and you'll have a very trans we'll have a very peaceful there won't be a transfer frankly there will be a continuation the ballots are out of control get rid of the ballots and there won't need to be a transition of power there will be a continuation of power get rid of the ballots and there won't need to be a transition of power there well frankly there will be a continuation of power what does he mean by get rid of the ballots he literally means get rid of the ballots whatever ballots come in for this supposed election get rid of them make sure they're not counted i mean this isn't some inarticulate blurt or neural misfire from the president speaking at the podium at the white house tonight this is what he is saying consistently now over the last few days this is what he means with the unsolicited millions of ballots that they're sending it's a scam it's a hoax everybody knows that and the democrats know it better than anybody else so you're going to need nine justices up there i think it's going to be very important because what they're doing is a hoax with the ballots what they're doing is a hoax with the ballots get rid of the ballots and there won't need to be a transition of power there will be a continuation of power because with no ballots to tell anybody otherwise he'll just stay this is not a hyperbolic interpretation of what the president is saying this is not him verbally glitching like he sometimes does these are not idle musings from the president this is now insistently and repeatedly and consistently from him where we are at now this scam that the democrats are pulling it's a scam the scam will be before the united states supreme court i think it's very important to have a ninth justice all those remarks from the president today and yesterday the president now saying insistently that the election will not be decided by the voters that this election is not a real election the ballots that we will all use to vote in the election those ballots are a scam we need to get rid of the ballots he also is saying explicitly that he expects the supreme court to which he is trying to appoint a new justice right before the election he expects that it will be the supreme court which handles the question of who the next president is rather than the election itself rather than the voters it'll be the court and he expects that the conservative majority will throw out the ballots and then we won't have to worry about any transition of power peaceful or other peaceful or otherwise because it'll be a continuation of power then because he will stay we want to get rid of the ballots and you'll have a very trans we'll have a very peaceful there won't be a transfer frankly there'll be a continuation yeah it'll be very peaceful when i stay in power because we'll stop the ballots we have to get rid of those and then i'll continue in power we are here it is now upon us there is not any ambiguity about where this is heading or how bad his intentions might be or what lengths he'd go to i mean we're here when the president said weeks ago that he wanted to delay the election remember that elected republicans at least said at that point no we don't think we're going to delay the election the election will happen in november but now he's just flat out saying that the reason he wants to move ahead with getting a new supreme court justice on the bench before the election is because he's declaring now in advance that ballots cast in the election don't count that ballots cast in the election are part of a fraud and a hoax that is illegitimate and therefore it will be the court including his newly appointed justice that will what was the phrase he used that will quote get rid of the ballots to stop the democratic hoax election so there doesn't have to be a transfer of power to a new president we are there everybody took four years turns out 244 years to stand this republic up four years to cut it down
