The left continued to spread the narrative that President Donald Trump may refuse to leave the White House if he loses the election in November.
And left-wing political commentator and Young Turks host Cenk Uygur added to the conspiracy theories on Tuesday as he, too, offered a way to rid the country of the president in case the United States military “does not remove him from office” after a supposed loss in November.
The host of the progressive online talk show and a failed congressional candidate, Uygur tweeted his vow to personally “go to Washington” to remove Trump, furthering the left’s fantasy that the president will lose his reelection bid to presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
“Sign Petition: If Donald Trump loses the election and refuses to leave, and the United States military does not remove him from office, I, the undersigned, will personally go to Washington and help remove him from the White House with my fellow Americans,” Uygur tweeted Tuesday, with a link to a “petition” of sorts.

Referring to Trump’s recent interview with Fox News anchor Chris Wallace, Uygur tweeted how the president said “it depends” when asked if he would leave office if he lost the election.
“No, it most certainly does not depend. You’ll leave, you f—ing goon. At that point, if US military does not physically remove you from the building, the American people will,” the 50-year-old activist tweeted.

Uygur’s theory about Trump defying November results fell in line with several recent examples of Democrats and others on the left laying down the narrative about his stealing the election. Democrats including Biden and failed 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton have been dropping commentary about Trump not accepting a loss in November, further spreading the election conspiracy among the Resistance.
“Well, I think it is a fair point to raise as to whether or not, if he loses, he’s going to go quietly or not. And we have to be ready for that,” Clinton told “The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah last week.
Biden thought the military would have to get involved to remove Trump from the White House. Asked by Noah on his show in June whether he had thought about the possibility of Trump refusing to leave office, the former vice president declared, “Yes, I have.”
“I promise, I am absolutely convinced they will escort him from the White House with great dispatch,” he said.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi continued that rhetoric when she declared that Trump will be leaving the White House “whether he knows it yet or not.”
“It has nothing to do with the certain occupant of the White House doesn’t feel like moving and has to be fumigated out of there because the presidency is the presidency. It’s not geography or location so, so much for him,” she told MSNBC this week.

Uygur’s tweet on Tuesday sparked some alarming agreement on Twitter.

The military will definitely remove him if it comes to that. They are people of impeccable character and integrity. They signed up to defend this country and its Constitution from all foes, both foreign and domestic. Presidents included.

I’m 60+ years old, have 2 herniated disks, and I am quite overweight, but I will get there on my hands and knees if I have to pull his sorry a$$ from the office.

But plenty of others on the social media platform relished the thought of Uygur and others having a meltdown in November when Trump is reelected.
It’s like do they not realize how many patriots there are?? 🤦🏽♀️

If trump loses (he won’t), I hope he accepts defeat like the dems and hillary did in 2016

We look forward to your election meltdown sequel, Cenk.

But what will you do if Trump rides off on the back of a Giant Flying Squirrel?
These guys create fantasy scenarios in their minds and then go off to fight the fairies they’ve imagined.
This is what passes for adulthood these days?

The only people who have refused to recognize lawful elections for the last 20 years are Democrats. Projection, pure and simple.
