Trump is doing far more than legally challenging vote counts. He's engaging in scorched Earth tactics to undermine democracy itself. His goal is obvious: consolidate support, and weaken the institution itself.
Eh, I'm not that worried about it. Literally nobody that I know who voted for Trump is going to follow Trump down this road. I realize that there are ignorant, crackpot extremists on both sides of the political aisle that are down for about anything regardless of the ramifications but that doesn't represent a large enough component of the population to achieve the kind of outcome you're prognosticating. It would be about the same as me claiming that antifa was two steps away from undermining the republic. Yes, they have a dangerous mindset, but there aren't enough of them (at least not yet) to do any real damage. While you are complaining about OANN (which I don't watch), I'm guessing you're imbibing fully on the left-aisle equivalent given the hysterical tone I'm reading into your comments.

The federal government can best be summarized as follows: foxes rearranging deck chairs on a floating henhouse called the Titanic.
