OH NOES! Trump Threatens that If Election Fraud Isn’t Solved ‘Republicans Will Not Be Voting”

Never let it be said that Donald Trump would ever miss an opportunity to say something profoundly stupid that he is certain is bursting with brilliance. He has been doing it for decades, although in the past five years that tendency has been rife with peril for millions of Americans.

Donald Trump, Woman, Fear

On Wednesday afternoon Trump finally said something that many people – especially Democrats – will be thrilled to hear. In defense of his obsession with his totally unfounded claims of election fraud, Trump had Liz Harrington, his Twitter ban defying spokes-shill, tweet that…

“If we don’t solve the Presidential Election Fraud of 2020 (which we have thoroughly and conclusively documented), Republicans will not be voting in ‘22 or ‘24. It is the single most important thing for Republicans to do.”

That’s fantastic news. Trump is effectively advising his dimwitted cult disciples to refrain from voting in future elections. The condition that he imposes is one that simply cannot be met. There is, after all, no way to “solve” what he is calling election fraud, when after the passage of nearly a year, multiple GOP-run audits, and more than sixty court cases, have never produced any evidence of such fraud.

Just because he says that it has been “thoroughly and conclusively documented” doesn’t mean that it has. If so, why hasn’t he produced any of this alleged documentation? Is he waiting for Mike Lindell, the MyPillow Guy, to send it to him?

Harrington was later apprised of how her Trump proxy tweet was been interpreted. So she stepped up to offer a clarification that only made things worse, tweeting that…

“President Trump did not say don’t vote. He pointed out the obvious consequence of not fixing fraud and holding those who broke laws accountable will be Republicans sitting out If we don’t fix our elections, many voters will think their vote won’t count.”

In other words, her clarification said exactly the same thing. If the nonexistent election fraud isn’t “fixed” the “obvious consequence” will be Republicans not voting because – why should they? That’s the same advice offered in the first tweet.

To be clear, Trump’s definition of “solving” his contrived election fraud crisis is to overturn the election and inaugurate himself as president-reject. He said so in another tweet wherein he tried to to hijack the “Big Lie” phrasing and amend it to the “Really Big Lie,” but redefine it as the actual election on November 3, 2020. He asserted that “If we had an honest media this Election would have been overturned many months ago.” Yeah, right!

It’s pretty safe to assume that the election will not be overturned. Therefore, the alleged fraud will not be “solved” according to Trump’s condition. And if that means that Republicans will sit out the next couple of elections, I guess the nation will just have to find a way to muddle through without the electoral contributions of ignoramuses who are blindly devoted to a lying, narcissist, with authoritarian aspirations. Somehow, I think we’ll find a way to carry on.

Trump Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham is ‘TERRIFIED’ He’ll Run in 2024 – She’s Not Alone

Donald Trump’s former press secretary, Stephanie Grisham, is currently promoting her new book, I’ll Take Your Questions Now: What I Saw at the Trump White House,” which comes out October 5, 2021. She was interviewed Monday on ABC’s Good Morning America by George Stephanopoulos, where she revealed some of her experiences as one of Trump’s longest serving aides.

Stephanie Grisham, Fox News

Excerpts from Grisham’s book have already disclosed, such as Trump’s unsavory fealty to Russian dictator Vladimir Putin. Other reports included descriptions of his bizarre behavior toward his staff, particularly women. But the GMA interview broke new and troubling ground. In it Grisham told Stephanopoulos that “I am terrified of him running for president in 2024.” She’s not the only one. The interview also featured this disturbing exchange:

Stephanopoulos: You were enabling the culture [of casual dishonesty] weren’t you?
Grisham: Yes, I was. And I reflected on that, and I regret that. Especially now watching him and so many people push the false election narrative. I now want to, in whatever way I can, educate the public about the behavior in the White House. Because it does look like he’s gonna try to run in 2024. […]

Grisham: He’s on his revenge tour for people who dared to vote for impeachment. And I want to just warn people that once he takes office, if he were to win, he doesn’t have to worry about reelection anymore. He will be about revenge. He will probably have some pretty draconian policies that go on.

It’s a little late for Grisham to express her regrets when she spent five years enabling the lies and megalomania that led to Trump’s insurrection and attempted coup. She addressed her own failures in the interview and conceded that she was no hero and that she wasn’t looking for praise. She just wants to get the truth out now before Trump has a second chance to complete his authoritarian takeover.

Progressives don’t have to embrace Grisham to appreciate her belated confessional. As someone who has been a long-time, trusted insider in the Trump cult, she has a unique perspective that could reveal further unethical, and potentially illegal, activities. She should be among the first former Trumpsters deposed by prosecutors investigating his administration’s many crimes.

As for Trump, he appears to be spooked by Grisham’s disclosures. He has already lashed out at her with his predictable, infantile insults, saying that it was “obvious from the beginning” that she “didn’t have what it takes.” Which affirms his tendency to staff his White House with “all the best people” that he later deems to have been incompetent all along.

What’s more, Trump complained that her book was put out by a “radical left-leaning publisher.” That would be HarperCollins, which is owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp., the parent company of Fox News. They have also published books by such radical left wingers as Jared Kushner, Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, Ben Shapiro, Newt Gingrich, Sarah Palin, and Ted Cruz.

Trump’s customary reaction to criticism is to throw childish tantrums. He literally told Mike Pence that “I don’t want to be your friend anymore if you don’t” usurp power that you don’t have to overturn the election results in Congress. And Trump is going full scorched earth over the revelations in Grisham’s book. Which can only mean that it’s likely all true and that he’s scared witless. As he should be.

UPDATE: Grisham tells CNN that Fox News, OAN, etc., were like state-run TV for Trump and could “potentially cause a lot of damage.”

Trump’s Candidate for Arizona Governor Would Not Have Certified 2020 Election Results

The MAGA “movement” is continuing to excrete waste from certain reddish regions of the country. While it remains a minority in most of the nation, there are pockets of sewage that float to the surface here and there. And when they do, Donald Trump is there to flush it out to the rest of his cult followers.

Donald Trump, QAnon, Dictator

This week Trump endorsed Kari Lake as his anointed candidate for governor of Arizona. That’s the state that just completed a fake audit (fraudit) performed by the rabidly partisan “Cyber Ninjas” that ultimately still found that Joe Biden is the legitimate president and was was fairly elected.

Lake is the perfect Trump surrogate. She is a TV celebrity with no political experience who embraces conspiracy theories, advocates for building a wall on the Southern border, peddles quack COVID cures, and most importantly, adores Trump almost almost as much as he does.

Lake’s job prior to jumping into the race was as a news reader on the Fox owned-and-operated television affiliate in Phoenix, Arizona. Trump viewed that as a plus in his endorsement tweet, posted by his spokes-shill, Liz Harrington, whose proxy Trump tweeting is a violation Twitter’s rules against circumventing a ban. Trump gushed that…

“@KariLake is running for Governor in the Great State of Arizona. She is a fantastic person who spent many years working as a highly respected television anchor and journalist. Because of this, few can take on the Fake News Media like Kari. She is strong on Crime, will protect our Border, Second Amendment, Military, and Vets.”

Continuing to tick off the tedious talking points that have become Trump/GOP/Fox News gospel, he said that Lake “is against COVID lockdowns, Cancel Culture, and will end ‘woke’ curriculum in our schools.” But most cringeworthy was Trump’s assertion that Lake “will fight to restore Election Integrity (both past and future!).” How he expects Lake to restore any of his warped versions of reality from the past remains a mystery. The election is over and cannot be rerun, decertified, or otherwise altered. However, that didn’t stop Lake from going on the fringe, right-wing One America “News” Network (OAN) to participate in this softball exchange with OAN’s Senior Propaganda Pusher, Natalie Harp:

Harp: Have you thought through how you would have handled November differently? We all remember the scene where [current GOP governor] Doug Ducey is sitting there. The phone rings. It’s president Trump. He doesn’t answer. And he signs results that we now know – he certified it under penalty of perjury – weren’t accurate. How would you have handled that differently?
Lake: Well, considering how much already at the time information we had about serious irregularities and problems with the election, I would not have certified it right then. I mean, we actually had Rudy Giuliani in town at that very moment going through pieces of evidence, affidavits, that were presented through people of, that had witnessed things that were wrong or that didn’t add up.

Harp’s leading question injects the mandatory Trumpian bullpucky about the election results not being accurate, despite the fact that their own handpicked Ninjas validated it. And Lake’s reply could not have been more wingnuttery. She actually had the nerve to cite Rudy Giuliani as a source. For the record, Giuliani’s lies and disinformation have resulted in the suspension of his license to practice law and even got him banned from Fox News.

Lake also went on Steve Bannon’s podcast and baselessly accused her Democratic gubernatorial opponent, the current Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, of criminal acts and implied that she would prosecute Hobbs, saying that “I think Katie Hobbs will have a really tough time campaigning from behind bars.”

Lake is an unabashed, fully indoctrinated Trump-fluffer. Her cult-like devotion to Trump is emblematic of the broader threat that Trump and his worshipers represent to the nation. They are implementing a coordinated, nationwide crusade to undermine democracy in every state. And they must be stopped. To that end, feel free to support the campaign of Democrat Katie Hobbs for governor of Arizona. And be on the lookout for other Trumpian agents running for office. The future of American democracy depends on it.

In Delusional Podcast Rant, Trump Still Thinks He’s Going To Be Returned To His Throne

By now, anyone who has been paying attention knows that Donald Trump is suffering from psychotic delusions about having won the 2020 presidential election that he lost by more than seven million votes. Either that or his pathological lying just keeps descending to new lows. Every recount, audit, and court case, over the past ten months has affirmed that Trump was decisively defeated by now President Joe Biden.

Donald Trump, King

These unimpeachable facts notwithstanding, the twice impeached mental case of Mar-a-Lago continues to peddle his “Big Lie” that the election was “rigged” and “stolen” from him. It’s a persistent pattern of victimhood that Trump uses to fleece his pathetic cult followers.

For the record, the latest example of Trump’s psychosis was evident in a podcast “interview” he conducted with ultra-rightist wannabe pundit David Harris Jr. Trump deployed the usual contrived clichés that litter his third grade level rhetorical vocabulary. “The Election was rigged,” he whined. It was “incorrectly reported by the fake news,” and “Our country is going to hell.” You know the drill. He elaborated saying that…

“They found thousands and thousands, much more than you’d need. Thousands and thousands of votes that were just false, or disgusting, or phantom, or anything you wanna call it. Far more than would be needed to overturn. […] I don’t need many of them [states]. I need two, two or three depending on size.”

Needless to say, actual evidence proves that none of that is true. There were not “thousands and thousands” of “false, or disgusting, or phantom” votes. In fact, the Arizona fraudit conducted by the conspiracy crackpots known as the Cyber Ninjas actually found more votes for Biden and fewer for Trump.

However, what’s most disturbing about Trump’s rant is that he still seems to believe that the election can be “overturned.” All he needs are a couple of states to decertify. Of course there is no legal path to the fantasy world that Trump inhabits. He is rambling incoherently again. And sadly, his dimwitted disciples will eat it up. It would be downright depressing if it weren’t so hysterical. Or would it be downright hysterical if it weren’t so depressing? At this point it’s getting hard to tell.

Former Fox News Editor Tells CNN He Has ‘Only Disdain’ for Spreaders of Trump’s ‘Big Lie’

Chris Stirewalt was the Digital Politics Editor for Fox News and a ten year veteran on the network. That all ended following his leading role on the 2020 presidential election forecast team that called the state of Arizona for Joe Biden. Stirewalt was unceremoniously dismissed shortly thereafter.

Donald Trump, Snake Tongue

It may have just been a matter of time before Stirewalt was cut loose anyway, considering some of his commentaries that were less than worshipful of Donald Trump. For instance there was the time he colorfully predicted the scene prior to one of Trump’s diplomatic trips saying that “He is going to fly into Brussels like a seagull. He is going to defecate all over everything, squawk and fly away.”

On Sunday Stirewalt was interviewed by CNN’s Jim Acosta. The subject was Trump’s still lingering obsession with having lost the the election last November. Acosta asked Stirewalt if he felt vindicated now that even the rabidly partisan Cyber Nimrods … er Cyber Cyber Ninjas concluded that Biden was the legitimate winner. Stirewalt replied that…

“I take no satisfaction or pleasure from seeing this outcome that roughly corresponds with the real results. They’re doing their damage anyway.”

Stirewalt went on to say that…

“I have sincere sympathy for people who were duped. There are people who really believe this stuff. I don’t know what Donald Trump actually believes. I think he knows he lost. Whatever. […]. But I have only disdain for the people who continue to promulgate this.” […]

“As the results in Arizona made clear, it doesn’t matter what you find. He will claim fraud anyway. He will still say that there was fraud even if the finding says there wasn’t. The point is to undermine voter confidence in the process.”

These are remarks that Strirewalt could never have gotten away with on Fox News, where unflinching fealty Trump and his “Big Lie” that the election was “rigged” and “stolen” from him are still mandatory opinions imposed by the network brass. So it may be fortuitous that Stirewalt was canned.

As for Acosta, he has been particularly cutting lately. He recently labeled Tucker Carlson a human manure spreader.” And there’s much more where that came from. In the same program with the Stirewalt segment, Acosta righteously ripped Trump as a big crybaby “Who can’t get over losing.”

That’s a trait in Trump that News Corpse has observed for years. Contrary to his delusional self image as a macho man, Trump is actually the Most Cowardly, Whining, Crybaby to Ever Be President! And in closing, here are just a few examples that have been documented.

Trump’s Cult Followers Eagerly Lap Up His ‘Big Lie’ After the Arizona Election Fraudit Fizzles

There is no question that Donald Trump was, and is, an imminent danger to the wellbeing of the United States. He has demonstrated that by repeatedly advancing his own perverse personal interests and a tyrannical craving for power and adulation. The results have been devastating for the nation as his maniacal hostility and pathological lies tore the country apart, leading to the January 6th insurrection and continuing incitation to violence.

Donald Trump Messiah

The legacy of Trump will include his fatally flawed stewardship of a collapsing economy that saw record numbers of jobs lost and businesses failing. He presided over diplomatic relations that embraced enemies and alienated allies. He created unprecedented political division, animosity, and bigotry. And his mismanagement of the COVID pandemic has resulted in nearly 700,000 Americans dying due directly to his negligence, incompetence, and deliberate malfeasance.

That said, Trump is not the biggest threat that America faces. From the start his demagoguery was the impetus for a cult following that rejected constitutional principles in favor of messiah worship. His dimwitted and easily conned disciples have always been more dangerous than he was himself. And his abhorrent remarks at his latest Cult Rally and Coronavirus Super-Spreader in Georgia illustrate just how treacherous Trump’s authoritarian aspirations are.

In another of his tediously long tirades, Trump lashed out at all of his usual enemies, including the press, insufficiently obsequious Republicans, and pretty much every Democrat. Although he did give a back-handed endorsement of Stacy Abrams for Georgia governor while he was attacking the current GOP governor, “RINO” Brian Kemp, for not “decertifying” the election, which, under the law, he can’t fo.

However, Trump was mostly fixated on the election review in Arizona by the Cyber Nimrods – sorry, Cyber Ninjas – that was just completed and found that President Biden beat Trump by an even larger margin. He rambled on about alleged improprieties had no resemblance to reality. In Trump’s world, though, there was a completely different perspective:

“Yesterday we got the results of the Arizona audit which were so disgracefully reported by those people right back there. And the headlines claiming that Biden won are fake news and a very big lie. You know they like to…you ever notice when they write about that they always say ‘While the election results are a big lie…?’ Every reporter. It’s like total misinformation. ‘While they’re totally unfounded.’ Everything’s unfounded, big lie, not correct. ‘While Trump has no reason to say this…’ I mean we’ve got piles and piles of information, affidavits by the thousands and thousands. It’s a disgrace. We won on the Arizona forensic audit yesterday at a level that you wouldn’t believe.

Trump starts off by simply stating, without any basis, that “the headlines claiming that Biden won are fake news.” In fact, the Nimrods themselves provided that finding in their report. It was not invented by the media. Even Fox News reported it as a confirmation of Biden’s victory. And if “every reporter” is saying that Trump’s twisted tales of election fraud are an “unfounded, big lie, [and] not correct.” it’s safer to assume that they are right than to believe a notoriously pathological liar like Trump.

Finally, if Trump actually has “piles and piles of information” validating his allegations, you have to wonder why he, or his crack legal team, hasn’t produced any of it in more than nine months and 60 court cases. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that his lawyers are themselves in legal peril. Rudy Giuliani’s license to practice law has been suspended in New York and Washington, D.C. And Trump’s other attorneys were recently sanctioned in court.

What makes this all the more troubling is that when Trump delivered the remarks above, his audience of confirmed zealots applauded enthusiastically. They couldn’t care less whether what he says is true or not. And neither does he. In fact, Trump will always support these preposterous fraudits because no matter what the results are, he’ll just claim that he won. Just like he’s doing with the 2020 election.

Trump’s cult crusaders will believe whatever he tells them to believe. The the first law of the cult is that the leader is the only one who will ever tell you the truth. Everyone else is lying to you. It’s a closed circuit of blind faith that puts the future of the nation – and democracy – at great risk. It’s how totalitarian regimes force their way into power. And with the mindless obedience of Trump’s fervent fanatics, this is the closes that America has ever come to that catastrophic possibility.

Misfortune Teller Trump Predicts America’s Apocalypse in Bonkers OAN Bootlicking

The dissociative defects in Donald Trump’s mangled mental state have been obvious to anyone who has been paying attention for the past few years. He not only fails to have a grasp on reality, but he can’t seem to retain a coherent focus on any topic as he rambles aimlessly through the short list of grievances that he’s fixated on.

Donald Trump Angry

Trump’s psychoses were apparent in the love-sick “interview” he did with One America News Network (OAN) on Friday. With the recently released results of the Cyber Ninja’s Arizona Fraudit still fresh in his frenzied mind, he tried to avoid the fact that the Ninjas were unable to manufacture any evidence of election fraud. In fact, the final tabulation showed an even wider margin of victory for Joe Biden.

Consequently, Trump attempted to paper over that humiliation with some broad strokes about cheating Democrats for which he had no factual basis (video below):

“I don’t want to be naïve. I think they [Democrats] are grossly incompetent. I really do. I don’t think it’s the votes. Because they cheat on the elections. They don’t need votes. They cheat on the elections. I mean, you look at 43,000 votes were found last night. They cheat on elections. When you cheat on elections you don’t have to destroy the country. They are destroying our country. Our country will not survive this. Our country will not survive.”

There’s a lot of derp to unpack in that brief outburst. First of all, Democrats must not be all that incompetent if they managed to produce more than seven million allegedly fake votes in order to decisively defeat the “stable genius” of Trump. So even from his deranged perspective, he’s essentially admitting that he is even less competent than his foes by allowing them to get away with it.

Secondly, Trump’s relentless charges of cheating have still never been validated by even a shred of evidence. Which is true with regard to the “43,000 votes” he says “were found last night.” They weren’t. Thirdly, What on Earth is he talking about when he says that “When you cheat on elections you don’t have to destroy the country.” Is he bragging that his methods of cheating can be done without destroying the country?

Lastly, Trump delivers his dystopian prediction that America is in its final days. He might as well be shuffling down 5th Avenue with a sandwich board that reads “REPENT! The End Is Near!” He may be right, but not for the reasons bouncing around in his diseased cranium. It is his inflammatory “Big Lie” rhetoric that is undermining faith in democracy and inciting his cult followers to violence. However, Trump wasn’t through spreading his morbid manure. Without even a pause to inhale, he launched into a completely different subject:

“And look at where they’re coming from. They’re coming from Yemen. They’re coming from the Middle East. They’re coming from all countries that are very sick countries. Very sick, very mean, nasty. They’re coming from all countries that have problems.”

Huh? What does that have to do with democrats or elections? Does Trump think that no one will notice that he just veered off into an entirely unrelated rant? And one that is not only utterly false, but blatantly bigoted? He’s just echoing the Nazi-inspired, racist “great replacement theory” rhetoric that Tucker Carlson and others on Fox News embraced. The America that both Trump and Carlson are afraid of losing is the one that is dominated by White nationalists like themselves.

Elsewhere in the same interview, Trump engaged in some old fashioned revisionist history about how no one had any idea that a pandemic could spread and, with the help of a negligent and incompetent leader, could take the lives of nearly 700,000 Americans:

“Nobody ever really thought a pandemic would happen. It sounds like sort of an ancient thing, you know? Or go back to 1917, which was so bad. But nobody thought it was going to happen.”

Never mind that in much more recent times times than the 1918 Spanish flu, we have suffered through AIDS, Ebola, SARS, swine flu and zika. Is Trump really so stupid that he has no inkling of knowledge about these viral episodes? Or is he just that brazen a liar? By the way, many people were both aware of and concerned about the potential for even more disastrous pandemics, including this guy in October of 2019:

President Biden once again proves who is more mentally adept. Meanwhile, Trump continues to visit only with sycophantic pundits who who shamelessly kiss his – let’s say ring. So he gets away with making the most preposterous statements without any correction by his worshipful hosts. It’s a cowardly pattern of behavior by a frightened and ill-equipped mental midget who only knows how to communicate anger and self-exaltation.

Trump is FREAKING OUT Over Arizona Fraudit Results that Prove Biden Won

The sham audit that Arizona Republicans have been hyping for several weeks is coming to an ignominious end. The Cyber Ninjas have released the results of their phony “forensic review,” and will now skulk back into the shadows from whence they came. Meanwhile, Joe Biden will ignore it all and just continue being President.

Donald Trump

On the other hand, Donald Trump and his contemptible confederates are not ignoring it all. Instead, they are focusing on preposterous accounts of utter nonsense so they can keep pumping out their “Big Lie” BS to his dimwitted disciples. The highly disreputable Cyber Ninjas were ultimately unable to manufacture any voting irregularities. In fact, their end count actually showed a wider margin of victory for Biden, with more votes for him and fewer for Trump.

This state of affairs has sent Trump into a ferocious frenzy as he feebly tries to fit the facts into a constructed reality that he, in his narcissistic stupor, can comprehend. And, true to form, his main method for doing that is to flood the zone with wild, nonsensical outbursts that serve no purpose other than to satiate his mammoth ego and to inflame his followers.

To that end Trump had his spokes-shill, Liz Harrington (whose proxy Trump tweeting is violating Twitter’s rules against circumventing a ban) post a statement asserting that the subpoenas of four of his closest associates (Mark Meadows, Dan Scavino, Steve Bannon, and Kash Patel) were merely a diversion from the the Cyber Ninja fraudit report.

One of Trump’s tweets on Thursday forewarned that “everybody will be watching Arizona tomorrow to see what the highly respected auditors and Arizona State Senate found out regarding the so-called Election!” That tweet didn’t age well. On Friday the report validating the original vote count was released with none of the “proof” of corruption that he and his minions had promised.

But it didn’t stop there. Trump, via Harrington, pounded out a manic maelstrom of 55 tweets alleging election fraud, in spite of the results in the official review. He hasn’t had a Twitter tirade like that since before he was banned. It was a bizarre hodge-podge of unsupported claims with no factual basis or verifiable evidence. For instance,
in one tweet Trump delusionally claimed that the “Lamestream Media are feeding large-scale misinformation to the public about the Arizona Audit. The Audit was a big win for democracy and a big win for us.” In another tweet he simply demanded that “Arizona must immediately decertify their 2020 Presidential Election Results.” He recently made the same demand of officials in Georgia.

It only got worse from there. It just doesn’t matter to Trump – or his cult followers – if the evidence matches his assertions. It doesn’t even matter if his blathering has any resemblance to reality. Trump just lets his rhetorical rambling pour out with the confidence that his simple-minded pawns will obediently buy into it. And he hits them with wave after wave of muddled meanderings to keep them off balance and incapable of noticing that none of it has any intelligible meaning. And, sadly, for some small, pathetic portion of the populace, it’s actually working for him.

UH-OH: Trump Mauls His Slobbering Lapdog Lindsey Graham in a Barking ‘Big Lie’ Blowup

The stench of desperation is wafting through Mar-a-Lago as Donald Trump slides deeper into the sewer of his own lies and psychoses. Even as the news breaks that he knew early on that there were no significant irregularities in the 2020 presidential election, he is continuing to disgorge increasingly bizarre and repeatedly debunked claims of fraud.

Donald Trump, Lindsey Graham

On Thursday morning Trump released another statement via his spokes-shill, Liz Harrington (whose proxy Trump tweeting is violating Twitter’s rules against circumventing a ban). Like most of his Twitter tantrums (twantrums?), this one was drenched with malice toward whoever he presently deemed worthy of his persecution and punishment. But this time the punishee was among his most loyal and shameless sycophants, Lindsey Graham.

Trump got wind of some of the excerpts from the new book, Peril, by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa. He surely didn’t read it, but the press has been quoting some of the more scandalous passages. One of them involved an account of how Republican senators Lindsey Graham and Mike Lee reacted to to Trump’s obsession with having lost the election to Joe Biden. As reported by the Washington Post…

“The book, ‘Peril,’ describes parallel efforts by the South Carolina Republican [Graham] and his conservative colleague from Utah, Sen. Mike Lee, to personally investigate the president’s claims of voter fraud as the lawmakers prepared to certify Joe Biden’s victory on Jan. 6.

Graham and Lee, both of whom ultimately voted to certify the results, took the claims of election fraud seriously enough to get briefed on the details, involve their senior staff and call state officials throughout the country. But privately, Graham gave the arguments a withering assessment, according to the book, saying they were suitable for ‘third grade.'”

And that was all it took to trigger Trump’s tempestuous wrath. This isn’t even an issue with Graham speaking out of turn on Fox News. It’s an account from a book that Trump hasn’t read, but would ordinarily dismiss as “fake” news. The tediously long tirade he released rebutting this was rife with seething animosity toward Graham, despite the Senator’s wretched record of Trump-fluffing fealty to the Former Guy:

“I spent virtually no time with Senators Mike Lee of Utah, or Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, talking about the 2020 Presidential Election Scam or, as it is viewed by many, the ‘Crime of the Century.’ Lindsey and Mike should be ashamed of themselves for not putting up the fight necessary to win. […]

“Mike Lee, Lindsey Graham, and all of the other Republicans who were unwilling to fight for the Presidency … are letting the Democrats get away with the greatest Election Hoax in history—a total con job! […] They should be ashamed of themselves.”

Most of the rest of Trump’s harangue was dedicated to his “Big Lie” that the election was “rigged” and “stolen” from him. He insists that the evidence of fraud is “staggering” (a word that he also used in another tweet Monday) despite the inability of him or his legal flunkies (whose licenses are being suspended) being able to provide any of it in more than 60 court cases that they lost. Nevertheless, Trump whines…

“Look at the facts that are coming out in AZ, GA, MI, PA, WI, and other States. If this were Schumer and the Democrats, with the evidence we have of Election Fraud (especially newly revealed evidence), they would have never voted to approve Biden as President. […]

“We are losing our Country! The Democrats are vicious and fight like hell, and the Republicans do nothing about it. RINOs fight harder against Republicans than they do against Democrats. […] The evidence on determinative and wide-ranging Election Fraud is staggering. Your Republican Presidential candidate won in a landslide, but has so little backing from Republican ‘leadership.'”

Trump also complained about the Republicans being politically negligent, asking “Why don’t they have hearings [where] we would all hear the irrefutable facts!” Who wants to tell him that in Congress the minority party doesn’t control the hearings schedule? However, nothing is stopping him from holding a press conference or a MyPillow-style symposium to make the “irrefutable facts” public. He could even produce his “staggering” evidence at one of his cult rallies. So is Trump just another RINO failing to expose the Democrats who “are destroying our Country”?

Trump’s assault on Graham marks another milestone in his mental meltdown. After all, Graham is the guy who insisted that “the Republican Party can’t grow” without Trump. He also said that he wants to “harness the magic” of Trump’s “movement,” while ignoring his “dark side.” And he has pledged to go to war for the principles Chick fil-A stands for.” But even all of that isn’t worshipful enough for Trump. And his dimwitted devotees still haven’t figured that out.

Trump’s Impotent and Insane Letter Asking Georgia to ‘Decertify’ the 2020 Election

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.

Donald Trump Circling the Drain

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.
