Had they been attempted to overtake the Michigan Capitol Building things would quickly have been developed into a stand-off or a hostage situation. At worst a hour long shootout that would likely have ended with the protestors being outgunned and overrun by SWAT and other forces.

I don't think that is what would happen. If these guys actually pushed the line and shot our legislature, I wouldn't be surprised if every gun nut in the state started going off. This wouldn't be a situation only police could handle. As someone who lives in michigan, I can tell you that outside of the Detroit area, it's like the south. There's millions of these guys here, just itching to blow somebody's head off.

I expect those types would mostly prove to be more bark than bite. Remember Malheur? Only one of them pushed it enough to get himself shot.

Gee, maybe they should have an unemployment system that actually functions and doesn't collapse from the weight. I would bet that would remove a large portion of the push for reopening. That being said, that is expecting too much.

So Trump said that the accusations against Biden might be false.

What the hell. He had a chance to take a swipe at a political opponent and didn't take it? Where is the real Trump and what did the aliens do with him?

If he says the accusations against Biden are credible, then he'd have to admit that the accusations are credible against him since they're just as or more credible.

Trump might just be smart enough to realize that going all in on this might backfire on him, what with several of his own stories bubbling under the surface.

He's unable to adopt to this situation as to various others. The very skills that rode him into the White House have turned against him ever since. Except when it comes to deal with the media and deflecting scandals and drama like teflon. But thats really the only thing.
