This is such an obvious case of liberal projection, maybe the most obvious example ever. Democrats and the media still haven’t accepted the results of the 2016 election but CNN is trying to suggest it is Trump who might have this problem in 2020.
The writer of the piece is Joshua Geltzer, a lawyer who actually worked in the Obama administration for a few years.
Take a look at this:
What if Trump refuses to accept defeat in 2020?
President Donald Trump’s critics are increasingly focused on the question of which Democrat will challenge him for the presidency in 2020. It’s an important question, but another one might be even more important: Regardless of who runs in 2020, if Trump loses, will he leave the Oval Office peacefully?
Let’s start with why we need to ask this question: Trump is increasingly proving himself to be a President eager to overstep his authority. Just last week, Trump displayed his willingness to invoke unprecedented presidential power to declare a national emergency utterly without justification.
This week has brought a startling report from the New York Times that, for the past two years, Trump has tried to undermine the investigations by Special Counsel Robert Mueller and other parts of the Justice Department in order to, in the words of the Times, “make the president’s many legal problems go away.” In light of these overreaching assertions of his own authority, it’s at least plausible that Trump might attempt to cling to power in ways previously unimaginable by an American president.
Thankfully, there are four steps that key actors across the American system of governance can take to get ahead of this possibility…
All told, there’s real reason to worry here. So, what can be done now to avoid a potential constitutional crisis and ensure that the 2020 election results — whatever they might be — are respected and that any transfer of power occurs peacefully?
Of course, Trump supporters are used to this kind of hypocrisy from the media. Remember when ‘The Week’ magazine put this on its cover a few weeks before the 2016 election?

And of course, who can forget this gem?
Donald Trump refused to say that he’d respect the results of this election. By doing that, he’s threatening our democracy.

The liberal media is basically saying Trump might do what they and Democrats have been doing for two years.
And they can’t even see it.
