Democrats and Never Trumpers praying for an Electoral College defeat of Donald Trump got some friendly fire on Sunday and they were none too happy about it.
David Axelrod, a former strategist for President Obama, tweeted that most of the electors “will and should” vote for Trump because the consequences of not doing so “would rip (the) country apart.”
Though I share deep concerns about election & @realDonaldTrump, most electors will follow states & should. Reversal would rip country apart.

Keith Olbermann, was quick to pounce on the former strategist.
Where have you been? The country has already BEEN ripped apart. The confirmation of Trump will simply mean repeating the process daily. https://t.co/pbiYezXxzS

Olbermann has made several unhinged videos and tweets since Trump’s election. Some that had people calling for him to be placed in a padded room and others even suggesting that he ought to receive a visit from the Secret Service for threats against the president-elect.
But he was joined by a chorus of others who also went into freakout mode over Axelrod’s tweet.
BREAKING: It’s ripped apart already. https://t.co/O4SlXSxdkS

.@davidaxelrod You don’t realize that we may already have had our last reasonably free election. Fascists do not let go of power peacefully.

Fair point. He only won based on the rules we’ve been using since the nation’s inception.

What support? He only had more than 62 million votes.
