The madness of wannabe king Donald Trump continues to swirl down the drain of irrelevancy. His obsession with having decisively lost the 2020 presidential election to Joe Biden is gnawing away at what’s left of his diseased brain. And his persistently reckless behavior is likely to foment violent insurrection, just as it did on January 6th.
This week Trump expressed his emphatic support for the insurrectionists who stormed the Capitol eight months ago. He gushed that “Our hearts and minds are with the people being persecuted.” By which he meant the Constitution-hating rioters who attacked Congress and injured more than 140 police officers.
On Friday, CNN reported that the district attorney of Fulton County, Georgia, Fani Willis, is quietly proceeding with the criminal investigation into Trump’s election interference. According to CNN…
“[C]riminal investigators in the state have been quietly conducting interviews, collecting documents and working to build a line of communication with congressional investigators as they aim to build a case against the former President for his alleged attempts to overturn the state’s 2020 election results.” […]
“Willis was investigating potential crimes, including ‘solicitation of election fraud, the making of false statements to state and local governmental bodies, conspiracy, racketeering, violation of oath of office and any involvement in violence or threats related to the election’s administration.'”
As the walls close in around Trump, he is reacting just as one would expect a malignant narcissist to react. He posted a rambling, run-on tweet via his spokes-shill, Liz Harrington (whose proxy Trump tweeting is violating Twitter’s rules against circumventing a ban). It was rife with fear and the sort of inane bombast that is his hallmark. Trump said that…
“Large scale Voter Fraud continues to be reported in Georgia…43,000 Absentee Ballot Votes Counted in DeKalb County that violated the Chain of Custody rules, making them invalid. I would respectfully request that your department check this and, if true, along with many other claims of voter fraud and voter irregularities, start the process of decertifying the Election, or whatever the correct legal remedy is, and announce the true winner. As stated to you previously, the number of false and/or irregular votes is far greater than needed to change the Georgia election results. People do not understand why you and Governor Brian Kemp adamantly refuse to acknowledge the now proven facts, and fight so hard that the election truth not be told. You and Governor Kemp are doing a tremendous disservice to the Great State of Georgia and to our nation – which is systematically being destroyed by an illegitimate president and his administration. The truth must be allowed to come out. Thank you for you attention to this matter.”
From the outset, Trump’s tweet was a ludicrous mangling of reality. There has been no “Large scale Voter Fraud” whatsoever. And all of Trump’s 60+ attempts to prove it were laughed out of court. Also, no legal process for “decertifying” the election exists anywhere but in the imaginations of Trump and his cult followers. Trump’s assertion that there were more “false and/or irregular votes” than needed for him to win is a figment of the same twisted imaginations.
Finally, Biden was and is the winner of the election and is the legitimate President. But that didn’t deter Trump from predictably throwing an infantile and ultra hyperbolic swipe at Biden who is working hard to undo Trump’s much more literal efforts to destroy the nation by undermining the people’s faith in democracy and inciting hostility and sedition.
The case in Georgia that is so frightening to Trump stems from his threatening phone call to Georgia election officials last January. Trump called Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and pressured him to “find” the extra votes needed for Trump to win the state. “I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have,” Trump demanded. The whole conversation was recorded and Trump is heard explicitly pressuring Raffensperger, and even threatening to charge him with criminal acts, if he doesn’t comply with Trump’s flagrantly unlawful ultimatum.
Now Trump thinks that this “respectful” letter to Raffensperger will somehow cause the Georgia results to be declared invalid making Trump the victor. Which is just the latest evidence that he is irredeemably insane and incapable of rational thought. The only thing this lie-riddled, pitiful and futile letter accomplishes is exposing how scared he is of the long overdue consequences of his unlawful acts.
