Trump Not Willing to Concede Until He Gets a Really Big "Participation Trophy" & Some Skittles
Most Republican Senators are still terrified of Trump's twitter wrath, but yesterday PA Sen. Pat Toomey, told the president that he should begin the transition process. Election officials from both political parties are strongly condemning voter fraud allegations by Trump and right-wing conspiracy theorists. And yesterday, the Republican Governors of Massachusetts and Maryland criticized Trump's efforts to delay an orderly transfer of authority in Washington.
The President's irresponsible attempt to cast doubt on the election results will undermine faith in our democracy and stall efforts to battle the virus and revive the economy. He simply doesn't care. His entire presidency has been about Donald Trump and his famously huge ego. Why should the last two months be any different.
Trump probably has a few more weeks to play games with our democracy. After that, Americans may start to consider public demonstrations to hasten his ouster. Hopefully, many more Republicans will come to their senses before then and condemn Trump's lies about the election results. Hopefully.
