Newsmax Host: The Democrats Are Actually the Ones Attempting a Coup

Donald Trump incited an insurrection against the United States government last week. His actions were both unprecedented and inexcusable. That does not mean, however, that his friends in cable news aren’t going to try to absolve him.

WASHINGTON DC, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, UNITED STATES – 2021/01/06: Police use tear gas around Capitol building where pro-Trump supporters riot and breached the Capitol.

Almost immediately after the incident, Conservative talking heads began to blame the riots on Antifa. Trump claimed this too, though he was corrected by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. That tact didn’t work, so Grant Stinchfield is trying a new one. The Newsmax host claims that it is actually Democrats who are attempting a coup.

Stinchfield was particularly angry about a viral video where Arnold Schwarzenegger compared what he saw last week to Nazi Germany. The Newsmax host told his audience:

“So, the Democrats use Arnold’s star power to try and deviously flip the script. President Trump isn’t seeking a coup, the Democrats are the ones seeking the coup. And it started with the Russian collusion hoax in the first impeachment of the president. And now they’re pushing for another one, not to kick him out of office — with just 9 days left in his term — but to make sure he can never run again. The leftists, along with Governor Schwarzenegger, are now exploiting the Capitol security breach as an excuse to persecute all political foes.”
