In a serious underestimation of how Americans really feel about outgoing President Donald Trump, the Boston Globe insisted that nobody wants to see Trump dragged out of the White House if he refuses to leave, resulting in hilarious responses proving otherwise.
Trump’s false allegations of election fraud and refusal to concede have escalated fears that he will refuse to leave office on January 20th when President-Elect Joe Biden in sworn in. If that were to happen, there are several options to remove him. Biden and former President Barack Obama have both suggested the military would escort him out. Federal law enforcement agents could also haul him out of there, kicking and screaming if need be. Either way, Trump would likely be prosecuted for trespassing and possibly even for obstruction.
The way Trump has behaved over the last four years, along with his desperation to stay in power, it’s certainly possible that he may have to be dragged out of the White House, which would be quite a spectacle.
The Boston Globe, however, claimed that while Trump may have to be escorted out Americans don’t want to watch him get dragged out.
Even a nation hooked on drama does not want to see a US president dragged out the front door of the White House on Jan. 20, so we asked experts in the art of persuasion how they go about dislodging the reluctant. https://t.co/5ERR3bbvlH

Predictably, the newspaper was spectacularly wrong as Twitter users overwhelmingly endorsed dragging Trump out, with some even suggesting that it would be a popular pay-per-view event.
Huh? Minimum 80 million people would be like pic.twitter.com/zJZH3qvduU

Counterpoint: dragging him out & putting it on pay-per-view would balance the budget for a decade.

Oh, honey. You have no idea how much I want that. And for New York Marshals to be waiting with handcuffs.

You’ve really misread the national mood. I’d pay cash money to watch that and I’d record it for repeat viewing when I needed a laugh.

While we don’t want to have a President who deserves to be dragged out, we *absolutely* want to see this President dragged out.

Who the hell did you poll? I will watch that shit live! Then I’ll watch a never-ending GIF of the US Marshalls throwing him out of the White house like Uncle Phil did DJ Jazzy Jeff. pic.twitter.com/KFMgnoN86K

You misspelled “WE ALL WANT TO SEE HIM DRAGGED OUT THE FRONT DOOR OF THE WHITE HOUSE” https://t.co/Ons9t0ZN5f

Clearly, the Globe underestimated just how much this country hates Donald Trump. That being said, let the dragging commence.
