Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn said there is “no reason” a coup could not happen in the United States.
During a right-wing conference in Dallas called the “For God & Country Patriot Roundup” over the weekend, the former White House national security adviser was asked by someone in the audience, who identified as a ” simple Marine”: “Why what happened in Myanmar can’t happen here?”
After cheers erupted in the crowd, Flynn replied, “No reason. I mean, it should happen here.”

The left reacted:
BREAKING: Michael Flynn advocates a Myanmar-style military coup here and GOP has begun its Putsch to overthrow Democracy in Texas.
Flynn must be arrested, a 1/6 Special Prosecutor named, and Republicans treated as the terrorists they are.

Mitch McConnell blocked the 1/6 Commission because it’s “a thing that occurred in the past.” Nope. It’s still happening — now. https://t.co/XWx4fFepl1

We will update this as we learn more…
I put this out:
Let me be VERY CLEAR – There is NO reason whatsoever for any coup in America, and I do not and have not at any time called for any action of that sort.
Any reporting of any other belief by me is a boldface fabrication based on twisted reporting at a lively panel at a conference of Patriotic Americans who love this country, just as I do.
I am no stranger to media manipulating my words and therefore let me repeat my response to a question asked at the conference: There is no reason it (a coup) should happen here (in America).
