Coup, as in "coup d'etat":

a sudden and decisive action in politics, especially one resulting in a change of government illegally or by force.

You know full well that was the meaning of the word that was intended, but chose to deliberately pick an alternative meaning. That's just the sort of doublethink worthy of the goons who are carving up our democracy right now.
