Throughout his single term as “president,” and his subsequent habitation of loserville, Donald Trump has demonstrated an impressive ability to make a total and complete arse of himself. Some of the highlights include his belief that stealth fighters are actually invisible, his claims that windmills cause cancer, his proposal to nuke hurricanes, his praise for how George Washington’s Army took over airports, and his advocacy of injecting bleach to cure COVID.
It may be going too far to suggest that his latest hysterical outburst surpasses any of those beauties, but it is at least in the same league. At his recent cult rally and coronavirus super-spreader in Phoenix, Arizona, Trump told his enrapt disciples that…
“Our country is being destroyed by people who have no right to destroy it. People that won an election illegally, people that should not have been elected. They lost in a landslide.”

Let’s begin at the end of that vacuous verbosity. The only one who lost in a landslide was Trump himself. And despite months of hyperventilating, he still hasn’t presented a shred of evidence of any “illegal” election activity. He’s been peddling his inflammatory “Big Lie” rhetoric months without any concern for the violence that it has caused and will likely cause in the future.
However, what truly deserves recognition for downright idiocy is Trump’s assertion that the people who he, in his egomaniacal delirium, alleges are destroying the country have “no right” to do so. That implies that there are people who do have that right. And of course, in his cartoon brain, that means him. To his credit, he already made a pretty good attempt at it.
This must be what Trump meant when he insisted that “I alone can fix it.” Although he was using the word “fix” in the way a mobster would with regard to a boxing match wherein he wanted to insure that the fighter he was betting on would win. It was revealing phrasing that is now the title of an anti-Trump book by Carol Leonnig and Philip Rucker of the Washington Post. Rucker appeared on Face the Nation Sunday to disclose just how close Trump came to his aspirations of destroying the country:
“It wasn’t until Trump left office that…we learned how much worse it really was. How close the country came to the brink, not only of chaos but of democracy falling.”

In addition to the above, Trump dropped a few other Loony Tunes this week. For instance, he still thinks that he can be returned to his throne this year:
“The Radical Left Democrat Communist Party rigged and stole the 2020 election. The time to act is not in 2022, or in 2024, the time is right now here in Arizona. We don’t have the luxury to sit back and wait for the next election”

He learned a new word (routers), but not the definition:
“The county has, for whatever reason, also refused to produce the network routers. We want the routers, Sonny, Wendy, we got to get those routers, please. The routers. Come on, Kelly, we can get those routers. Those routers. You know what? We’re so beyond the routers, there’s so many fraudulent votes without the routers. But if you got those routers, what that will show, and they don’t want to give up the routers. They don’t want to give them. They are fighting like hell. Why are these commissioners fighting not to give the routers?”
did Trump confuse "router" with "server" or did I miss another batshit conspiracy theory https://t.co/mW7Np8bogj

And he’s repeating an old word that isn’t exactly family-friendly at his cult rally where children (and childish adults) are in attendance:
“Democrats don’t want you talking about the election because they say, ‘Holy sh*t! They caught us!'”

Never mind that no Democrat has ever said or even thought that about the election. Also, Trump called the New Green Deal, “New Green Bullsh*t.” He’s so presidenty.
These are just a sampling of the peculiar lunacies Trump has laid down and that America has had to tolerate for the past five years. It doesn’t include the far more serious matters, such as violent insurrection and hundreds of thousands of viral fatalities. And the ordeal is still not over.
As long as Trump and his confederates have not been brought to justice, the nation will continue to suffer. Even after Trump has left the scene, his successors will take over where he left off unless the rule of law is restored. And it’s up to the American people to demand it.
