This is also a coup

Can we just start calling Ergogan's own actions a coup, or a counter-coup? The bottom line is that he may have avoiding military dictatorship from taking over Turkey, but he is using that incident as an excuse to impose his own dictatorship. This is illegitimate for the same reasons last Friday's attempted coup was illegitimate.

If we didn't have the shitshow in Cleveland to marvel over, I wonder if it would get more attention in the U.S.
