Glesnes rocket brings Union to 2-2 tie with Atlanta United

One America News’ Pearson Sharp made a broad and terrifying argument in a segment that first aired Tuesday night, falsely asserting that “hundreds of thousands” of Americans were involved in a “coup” against former President Donald Trump. Those who worked to overthrow Trump, Sharp went on, should be dealt with — permanently.

“What happens to all these people who are responsible for overthrowing the election?” Sharp asks in his segment, while implying that state election audits would eventually reveal a Trump victory. Well “in the past,” he declares, “America had a very good solution for dealing with such traitors: Execution.”
