The Trump era began with stupidity, ran on stupidity, and will end with stupidity.
Donald Trump is promising to take the election fight to the Supreme Court, though he hasn’t specified on what grounds.
He claims counting ballots after the election disenfranchises the votes already counted. How does that make sense? It doesn’t.
In Pennsylvania and Georgia, Donald Trump is screaming to stop the recount. In Nevada and Arizona, he’s a champion of counting late ballots. In Wisconsin, he’s demanding a recount. His angry mobs of goons, who had been “standing by,” are now at some locations where votes are being counted, demanding for the votes to be counted…which is what’s being done. In other locations, MAGAts are gathered at election offices chanting for the counting to stop.
When Donald Trump won Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin in 2016, he won by very thin margins. His opponent didn’t take the election to court or demand recounts. Now, he’s going to be on the losing end of several states by slim margins and he plans to fight each one all the way to the Supreme Court where three of the justices are Trump goons “standing by.”
Donald Trump will go to court with inconsistent arguments. The best thing is to remain consistent and argue that every vote should be counted. Let the chips fall where they may.
Donald Trump feared Joe Biden before the election. He tried to get dirt on him from Ukraine for which he was impeached. He called for his Attorney General to investigate Biden. He called for Joe Biden’s imprisonment. And now, he’s screaming there’s fraud because votes are being counted.
Donald Trump wants to be a dictator so bad. I hope his fear of Joe Biden winning this election is realized and deprives him of his totalitarian dreams.
If Joe Biden doesn’t win this election, it might be the last one we ever have.
