It’s pretty incredible that Alec Baldwin’s Donald Trump character is not really a caricature … because he’s really like that.
Trump flew off the Twitter handle again, lashing out at voting officials in big cities, saying, “We believe these people are thieves. The big city machines are corrupt. This was a stolen election.”
Trump tweeted this before heading out for his second day of golfing in a row.
Trump goes on to quote a British pollster, whom he says also called it a stolen election, adding, “it’s impossible to imagine that Biden outran Obama in some of these states.” Of course, a pollster from Great Britain doesn’t know the mechanics of vote processing in America.
As you know by now, Trump has offered no concrete evidence of fraud and has been booted out of court. True enough … he could probably get this before the U.S. Supreme Court, but even with the addition of Amy Coney Barrett, it’s highly unlikely the Court will overturn election results. Above all else, the SCOTUS cares about its legitimacy, and by siding with Trump on flimsy to no evidence, the justices know it would result in an uprising and almost certainly court-packing.
And, there’s this … Trump has a voter fraud hotline which has been inundated with prank calls from Biden supporters. The Biden folks would call in, laughing and gloating over Trump’s loss … this according to ABC News.
The sad fact … Trump’s never going to concede or help Biden in the transition. Well, Biden already knows his way around the West Wing, so it’s not gonna be a problem.
