  • Heartwarming in Hindsight: One of the main scenarios outlined for kicking off the Second Civil War was the potential impeachment of President Donald Trump. It was theorized this would cause a number of Right-Wing Militia Fanatic groups to take up arms against the state in defense of the President against the "deep state". A number of audio clips are played from such groups saying that even the act of impeachment would unleash anarchy and violence from their followers.note  Cut to late 2019/early 2020, the President was impeached and... nothing happened. No violence, no murder, no bloody insurgencies.
    • Granted, he was only impeached, and it never went all the way through. Had the Senate upheld it...we might have had a different story.

How well does it match the trope?
