If you don't want General Hannity sending in Oatheepers against Pelosi, don't call events in Bolivia, especially actions by the police and military, a "coup." Trump is liable to end the same way Morales did and saying it's a "coup" lays the groundwork for the Right to stage one.
Bolivia isn't a coup, if you want to refer to police + military actions call it bureaucratic noncompliance + advocacy, we don't have the language to describe this specific phenomenon, but to describe it as a coup creates the hegemonic narrative the Right needs to recover power.
When Trump tweets "COUP!" in 2020 after the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff goes on TV and says Trump needs to get out of office after he loses and is surrounded by 10 million people in DC, you must be able to convincingly argue it isn't one.
