The madness of wannabe dictator Donald Trump continues to spin perilously off of the cliff’s edge of sanity. It’s been a month since election day and Trump persists in his deranged fantasy that he won the election and that Joe Biden and the Democrats pulled off a massive fraud that produced millions of fake votes and involved thousands of conspirators.
How this alleged scheme managed to work without any leakage of evidence, mistakes by the legions of conspirators, or confessions by whistleblowers is a deep, dark mystery. And yet, that’s precisely what Trump wants his glassy-eyed disciples to believe.
On Saturday morning Trump took to his Twitter machine to pound out more whining paranoia about his victimhood. He began by asserting that if Georgia Governor Brian Kemp would demand signature verification it “will show large scale discrepancies” and a Trump victory in the state. Never mind that there have been three vote counts in Georgia already and zero discrepancies have been found. Also, Kemp doesn’t have the authority to call for the signature verification that Trump is demanding.
Following that, Trump expressed his surprise that some Republicans have conceded that Biden is the legitimate winner and the President-elect. Trump responded to an article in the Washington Post that surveyed GOP members on the subject and found that “Just 27 congressional Republicans acknowledge Joe Biden’s win over President Trump a month after the former vice president’s clear victory.”
25, wow! I am surprised there are so many. We have just begun to fight. Please send me a list of the 25 RINOS. I read the Fake News Washington Post as little as possible! https://t.co/cEBM0bYuQ9

Trump’s surprise appears to be more than simple curiosity. He’s asking his Twitter followers to provide him with a list of the offending Republicans. This is troubling on several levels. First of all, since Trump is too fragile a snowflake to read the article himself, doesn’t he have staff that could read it and provide the information he seeks? Secondly, He’s been fighting for a month now despite the election having been certified and his lawyers having lost 39 out of 40 lawsuits (so far). Third, if he really thinks the Washington Post is “Fake News” why does he care what they published?
Finally, Trump’s interest in a list of the GOP members of Congress who he believes betrayed him by acknowledging reality can have only one purpose. He intends to dispense some sort of revenge. This would be consistent with his tyrannical style of “leadership” wherein loyalty to him (not the country) is paramount. He is aiming a thinly disguised threat as his own party confederates for their failure to show unflinching faith in Dear Leader.
This is the behavior of a desperate and frightened cretin whose fate is settled, but refuses to accept it. Everyone but Trump knows that this election is over. And his stubbornness just makes him look all the more pathetic and detached from reality. In this state Trump represents a clear and present danger to America. Hopefully he can be restrained for just 46 more days.
