In Desperation, Due to Guilty Verdicts and Flagging Polls, Trump Flip-Flops on Mail-In Voting

From the beginning of his misadventures in politics, Donald Trump has opposed any form of voting other than a same day presence at a physical polling place. He has insisted that all forms of early voting and mail-in balloting are schemes contrived by Democrats to contaminate elections with fraud.

Donald Trump, Vote By Mail

As a result of his relentless anti-early and mail-in voting campaign, Trump’s glassy-eyed cult disciples now refuse to dirty themselves with the practice that their Dear Leader has decreed is infected with nasty, democratic corruption. Never mind that there has never been any evidence of the widespread fraud that Trump and his MAGA GOP confederates fear monger about with such ferocity.

Which makes Trump’s newfound embrace of early and mail-in voting all the more peculiar and blatantly hypocritical. In a post on his floundering social media scam, Truth Social, Trump proudly announced that

“Today we launched Swamp The Vote USA. Whether you vote absentee, by mail, early in person, or on Election Day—We will Secure Your Vote. JUST VOTE! They are all good options. The way to win is to Swamp Them with Votes!”

OH! So now “They are all good options”? That’s funny. Because prior to this they were all swindling and cheating and villainous tricks to steal your vote. They were what Trump insisted were “totally corrupt” cons where you “automatically have fraud.”

Trump was so adamant about his opposition to early and mail-in voting that he warned that it would be “a disaster for our Country and for conservatism,” and that if allowed “There will never be a Republican elected to high office again.” Which actually sounds more like a reward than a threat.

There was, however, some notable pushback to Trump’s trepidation. Among the GOP officials encountering his objections was his daughter-in-lawlessness, Lara Trump, who he recently installed as co-chair of the Republican National Committee (RNC). She took the completely opposite view saying that

“If we want to compete with the Democrats, we cannot wait until Election Day. If we want to compete and win, we must embrace early voting. The days of waiting until Election Day to vote are over.”

Surprisingly, despite her disobedience, Trump never attacked Lara as a RINO who is aligned with the radical left Marxists, thugs, and vermin, working to destroy the country. Instead, Trump has adopted her view and now is imploring his cult followers to employ the voting methods that he previously denigrated as evil. Although, even with his new position, he is still denouncing the practice. In a video on his new “Swamp the Vote” website, he promises that right after this election…

“I will, once and for all, secure our elections. We’re going to go to paper ballot. We’re going to have same day voting, voter ID.”

Clearly, Trump is only concerned about this issue because he sees that his support is waning in the wake of his 34 felony guilty verdicts. So he doesn’t want to take any chances on losing even a single prospective vote. It’s actually the continuance of a pattern. Trump did same thing just prior to the last presidential election in 2020, when he also ditched his position on anti-early and mail-in voting just a few weeks before election day.

For Trump, this is a principle that relies more on convenience than faith. Because the only things that ever matter to him are what happens to be in his best interest at a specific moment in time. When that moment passes, so does his conviction. Well, except for the ones he just got in New York for paying off a porn star to steal an election, then covering it up by falsifying his business records.
