What Will the Left Ask For Next?

Comedian, TV personality and longtime Donald Trump foe Rosie O'Donnell on Wednesday evening called for the use of martial law to stop the president-elect's inauguration next week.
She takes sore loser to a new level.  Suddenly this 1/13/17 Washington Post article makes more sense:
The Army general who heads the D.C. National Guard and has an integral part in overseeing the inauguration said Friday that he will be removed from command effective at 12:01 p.m. Jan. 20, just as Donald Trump is sworn in as president.
Maj. Gen. Errol R. Schwartz’s departure will come in the middle of the presidential ceremony — classified as a national special security event — and while thousands of his troops are deployed to help protect the nation’s capital during an inauguration he has spent months helping to plan.

Team Trump is credibly saying they offered to let him stay in command for the whole day after accepting his routine resignation offer as they are for so many other political appointees, but that he declined and went right to the media.

On the other hand, his National Guardsmen aren't supposed to be armed, I image they'll be doing traffic control and the like sorts of things to free up armed law enforcement officers for the serious stuff. And it looks like there may be some of that, see for example the Project Veritas sting video and promised following ones. These guys are looking forward to "our only chance to fight Trump under the laws and police protocol of the Obama era."
