Not that it’s anything new, but we’ve been getting mixed signals from the Left. For a while there the word was the Donald Trump didn’t really want to be president, and he didn’t even think he’d win. And once he did win, he decided he didn’t like the gig and wasn’t really into it. Oh, and also, if he loses the 2020 election, the National Guard will have to physically remove him from the Oval Office.
We’ve heard this come up again and again, and it came up Tuesday courtesy of New York Times contributing op-ed writer Wajahat Ali — yeah, the guy who claimed he wasn’t “owned” by Rep. Dan Crenshaw after falsely claiming that hadn’t sponsored the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund — something easily looked up in seconds on Google.
We almost hate to do it — Ali was owned so damn hard already today — but it’s hard to ignore his claim that he’ll “gladly eat crow” if Trump leaves office if he loses the 2020 race.
Y'all still think Trump will leave if he loses the 2020 election? You're not paying attention. You can call me hysterical and reactionary and I hope I'm proven wrong. I'll gladly eat crow.

"Gladly eat crow."

We had to do a post for posterity for when Trump voluntarily walks out of the White House in January 2025. The overwhelming majority of people following Ali agree with him and have even shared how they’ve told their therapists about this nightmare coming true.
Aren't you still eating crow from your being trounced by @DanCrenshawTX / @RepDanCrenshaw, bc you couldn't check that he had in fact co-sponsored a 9/11 healthcare bill that you accused him of not doing so? https://t.co/rhiwoQ8Whs

You are hysterical and reactionary.

? I think it’s far more likely Trump resigns that night and plays golf the next morning. When the markets go into full panic mode with President-Elect Bernie and a Democratic Congress, the media will be dying for a Trump response. Dying for one. https://t.co/c0q04Ch4HY

Crows are perfectly safe. The world would never ever know what Trump would do if he loses in 2020, because he is not going to, your convoluted wishful thinking notwithstanding. https://t.co/PWBXGWKAgS

Reagan won't leave. HW won't leave. W won't leave. Trump won't leave. I'm sensing a really really really, and I do mean really, hysterical in the sense of having hysteria, pattern here. Bless their little hearts. https://t.co/J4uvB1tMRD

Gonna hold onto this one.
First of all, there's a decent chance Trump wins.
Second, NOBODY is okay with Trump losing and refusing to leave. If that happens, I will be side by side with these propagandized dorks making sure he leaves. https://t.co/b2oZ5Xu924

If Ali wants to be proved wrong, he should have a word with his boy Joe Biden about stepping up his campaign a notch or several.
