It is really sad to see a President who accomplished much good turn into a delusional lunatic. Columnist Piers Morgan says “As someone who likes him personally and sees many qualities in him that his enemies refuse to admit exist, it’s increasingly sad and pathetic to watch.”
Ever since November 3, Trump has let loose a barrage of tweets in which he referred to conspiracy theories that claimed the election was stolen from him.
On Sunday, during an interview with Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo, the President really went off the rails. Trump accused the FBI and the Department of Justice of “maybe” being involved in a “total” voter fraud. Trump also claimed that “most Democrats” believe Biden won because of “election fraud”
The FBI and DOJ helped rig the election in favor of Biden? Most Democrats believe Biden won because of voter fraud? That’s simply batshit crazy.
Trump now claims he actually won the election by a landslide.
Was there voter fraud in the election? Of course there was. There is voter fraud in every election. But was the voter fraud so massive that it stole the election from Trump? There simply is no evidence of that.
Some 30 lawsuits have been filed in state and federal courts seeking to have the election results overturned. Almost all of them have been dismissed for lack of evidence. In one suit, Justice David Wechtof the Pennsylvania Supreme Court wrote, “They have failed to allege that even a single mail-in ballot was fraudulently cast or counted.” And in another suit, Federal Appeals Court Judge Stephanos Bibas wrote, “Calling an election unfair does not make it so. Charges require specific allegations and then proof. We have neither here.”
Christopher Krebs was director of DHS’ Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency before Trump fired him for failing to back the President’s stolen election claims. Krebs says “We can go on and on with all the farcical claims that– alleging– interference in the 2020 election, but the proof is in the ballots. The recounts are consistent with the initial count, and to me, that’s further evidence, that’s confirmation that the systems used in the 2020 election performed as expected, and the American people should have 100% confidence in their vote.”
Trump and those who believe his conspiracy theories about election fraud, badly need a dose of reality. On December 14 the electoral college will declare Biden the winner of the presidential election. And on January 20 their worst nightmare, including mine, will come true with the inauguration of Biden as President and as Vice President the woman who is only a heartbeat away from the presidency.
And instead of Trump being recognized as the president who made America great again, historians will describe him as a man who became a lunatic during the last weeks of his presidency.
