For Donald Trump, it wasn’t bad enough that he incited a deadly insurrection in Washington, D.C. on January 6th. He seems to be determined to cause even greater harm and destruction as his allegations become ever more deranged. His delusional insistence that the 2020 Presidential election was stolen from him is further infecting his dimwitted cult followers with his bloodthirsty madness.
On Monday Trump did another rambling, incoherent phone-in interview, this time with David Brody, the ultra-rightist Trump toady on Real America’s Voice and the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN). As usual, there was nothing newsworthy produced by this predictably self-serving segment. Although it did give Trump another opportunity to demonstrate his obstinate denial of reality as exemplified in this demented exchange:
Brody: Did you admit defeat? I just want to understand that.
Trump: No. I never admitted defeat. And we have a lot of things happening right now. I think that that was an election that… I don’t think. All you have to do is read the newspapers and see what’s coming out now. No, I never… the word is concede. I have not conceded.

Of course Trump didn’t admit defeat. His malignant narcissism prohibits any acknowledgement of failure, despite the massive quantity of it that he has produced throughout his life. He will always manage to avoid responsibility or blame others for his flaming fiascos. And now he has latched onto another imaginary lifeline that he hopes will thrust him back into the White House. He released a statement saying that…

Holy Shih Tzu! Trump really has no idea what he’s saying. This is pretty simple actually. If “Georgia now plans to remove over 100,000 ‘obsolete and outdated’ names off their voter rolls,” the key words are “obsolete and outdated.” Which means, according to the Georgia statute, they are the names of people who have not voted in over five years. Consequently they can be neither illegitimate votes for Joe Biden, nor uncounted votes for Trump.
So Trump’s complaint that the purge wasn’t done prior to the last election is meaningless. It would not have affected the outcome. And his whining that “This means we (you!) won the Presidential Election in Georgia,” is a straight up lie. As are his hollow assurances that “much other information will soon be revealed” and that “It is coming out FAST and FURIOUS.”
The only thing “coming out FAST and FURIOUS,” are Trump’s tedious tirades about the 2020 election being “rigged.” The real problem is the rigging of future elections by the Republican Party. The avalanche of bills in red states to suppress voters of color, low-income voters, and Democrats in general, is a real threat to American democracy. We are already mired in a flawed system where, according to Ari Berman of Mother Jones…
“[Democratic senators] represent 43 million more Americans than the 50 Republican senators,” [but that] “because of the 60-vote requirement to pass most legislation, 41 Republican senators representing just 21 percent of the country can block the bill from moving forward, even though it’s supported by 68 percent of the public.”
Republicans are trying to make that situation even worse with their rash of legislation intended to obstruct the votes of millions of citizens. But don’t tell that to GOP Sen. Chuck Grassley, who tweeted that…
Democrats are saying our democracy is broken & needs total overhaul -FALSE Our system is envy of world Anyone who says otherwise is undermining faith in elections & aligning w Chinese & Russian propaganda

Really? The most strident critic of the American election system is, of course, Donald Trump. He’s the one who has been saying for months (years) that the system is rigged and the past election was the most corrupt in the history of the United States. So Grassley is actually accusing Trump of “undermining faith in elections & aligning w Chinese & Russian propaganda.”
For the record, Democrats are not trying “overhaul” democracy. They are trying to preserve it and keep Republicans from destroying it. The “For the People” Act is a response to the Republicans bills being pushed in states across the country. It’s Trump’s allegations that are plainly aligned with Russian efforts to diminish American democracy. And his fealty to Vladimir Putin is matched only by his fellow Republicans and most of the traitors on Fox News.
