I have no doubts about this.

Donald Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen said Friday he believes his former boss will “do anything and everything” to win re-election and “even go so far as to start a war” to remain in office.

In an exclusive interview with NBC News’ Lester Holt, Cohen was asked if he thought Trump would win in November.

“So Donald Trump will do anything and everything within which to win. And I believe that includes manipulating the ballots,” Cohen said.

“I believe that he would even go so far as to start a war in order to prevent himself from being removed from office,” Cohen continued. “My biggest fear is that there will not be a peaceful transition of power in 2020.”

Remember back when we all dismissed this kind of talk as ridiculous?

Yeah, anybody still doing that?

Okay, the good news is that Trump cannot start an actual war without the support of Congress. (You might remember that Bush had to convince the American people that Saddam Hussein was about to drop a nuclear bomb on New York before Congress was forced to sign off on his ill-conceived war.) 

However, the bad news is that Congress does not need to give him permission to foment a civil war right here in the good old USA, which it seems is exactly what he is trying to do. 

I do not think that ultimately getting all of us to fight each other really helps him to stay in power, but I don’t think he knows that. 

Simply put we are legitimately going to have to drag this asshole out of office by his ankles when he loses this election. 

And that works for me just fine.
