It’s no surprise that comedian Rosie O’Donnell continues to lash back at Donald Trump, especially as he prepares to assume the highest office in the land. Trump is known for saying some incredibly insulting things about O’Donnell, and some of the people with whom he surrounds himself are dangerous to the LGBT community.

But O’Donnell seems to have upped the game, and went on Twitter to suggest martial law take over the nation until the president-elect is cleared of all charges against him.

‘I FULLY SUPPORT IMPOSING MARTIAL LAW – DELAYING THE INAUGURATION – UNTIL TRUMP IS “CLEARED” OF ALL CHARGES’

O’Donnell pinned the tweet to the top of her page and then sent out a series of Twitter posts to hammer home her message:

‘he cheated – and its not about hillary – its about delaying the swearing him in – til we investigate all charges’

‘DELAY THE DATE – INVESTIGATE – DO NOT SWEAR HIM IN #TrumpSUX’

‘SHOW UR YOUR TAXES – SHOW US YOUR TAXES – show us ur taxes – SHOW US UR TAXES – WE THE PEOPLE WANT TO SEE THEM – SHOW US UR TAXES #Trump’

‘DELAY THE DAY – DO NOT SWEAR HIM IN – HIS WORD MEANS ZERO – PRODUCE HIS TAXES FOR ALL TO SEE #SAVEAMERICA’

‘HE LIES – DO NOT SWEAR HIM IN – DELAY THE DAY’

‘HEY EVERYBODY – DONALD TRUMP LIES CONSTANTLY – @washingtonpost DO NOT SWEAR HIM IN – STOP THE INAUGURATION #reallypeople’

‘mentally ill peotus’

‘show ur taxes donnie’

‘he lies – he lies – all the time’

‘delay the day – do not swear him in until it is investigated – for the love of god america – we must stop the inaugruation[sic]’

Although martial law might be a bit of an overreaction, and there are as yet no formal “charges” to investigate, Rosie has a point.

The most recent rumors regarding Russia having collected compromising data on the president-elect are just the tip of the iceberg, and many of those cracking jokes about “golden showers” are missing the point entirely due to the salacious nature of some of the claims. Regardless of the 70-year-old’s sexual proclivities, should the dossier information collected by the former British intelligence officer prove true, much of the content could be exploited by enemies looking to influence and manipulate an American president.

Trump has taken a soft stance with Russia and in particular with Russian President Vladimir Putin, who is under scrutiny for possible war crimes in Syria as well as the illegal annexation of Ukraine.

The president-elect has also still refused to release his tax returns, which would provide Americans (and investigators) with a full disclosure of his financial interests. Trump has built a global business, working with foreign governments to facilitate the construction of his real estate holdings. Which countries are they, and how were they financed? What favors does Donald Trump owe to which governments for allowing him to do business in those countries.

As for financing, which international and domestic financial institutions does Trump owe favors to for business loans of potentially billions of dollars. How will his administration deal with consumer protection legislature from banks known for lying and cheating their customers?

Trump also refuses to divest himself of his businesses and place them in a blind trust, as is traditional for a U.S. president. He claims that he will hand over control to his children and stay at arm’s length, but then he hires family members to work in his administration in probably the most blatant show of government nepotism since we were under jurisdiction of the British crown in the 1700s.

Martial law may sound extreme. It is, in fact, extreme. But it is not news that many Americans are frightened enough to take the risk rather than live under what is proving to be a terrifying case of the man behind the curtain, pulling all the levers, and refusing to disclose his motives, actions, and real intent.
