We are finding out what would happen after the American people rejected Donald Trump A Ph.D. psychologist who also happens to be the president’s niece has created a pathway to at least a partial understanding. She is the daughter of POTUS’ dead older brother and writer of the book Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man.
POTUS did something strangely disturbing Thursday. He released a statement on the Trump-Pence campaign stationery that read like one of his tweets. Why he would choose to do that is a bit disturbing. As usual, he offered evidence that he was recreating his own reality in which he “easily win(s).” That was followed by the typical blame game, victimhood, and deflection. But the message was all in capital letters for some very odd reason. It was creepy:
‘IF YOU COUNT THE LEGAL VOTES, I EASILY WIN THE ELECTION! IF YOU COUNT THE ILLEGAL AND LATE VOTES, THEY CAN STEAL THE ELECTION FROM US!’
PBS’ Yamiche Alcindor brought the bizarre statement to light. She gave us the Cliff Notes version of what the man who occasionally sits in the Oval Office had been doing. After giving a 2:30 a.m. press conference after Election Day, he has not been seen.
The White House Correspondent for PBS wrote that the president had tweeted “STOP THE FRAUD!” & “STOP THE COUNT:”
‘Things Pres Trump has done today: -Tweet “STOP THE FRAUD!” & “STOP THE COUNT!” -Issue an all CAPS statement through his campaign that reads like a tweet. -Repeatedly, without evidence, claim Democrats are trying to steal the election. Things he has not done: -Take questions.’
Amazon wrote this about Mary Trump’s revealing book, “her uncle became the man who now threatens the world’s health, economic security, and social fabric:”
‘In this revelatory, authoritative portrait of Donald J. Trump and the toxic family that made him, Mary L. Trump, a trained clinical psychologist and Donald’s only niece, shines a bright light on the dark history of their family in order to explain how her uncle became the man who now threatens the world’s health, economic security, and social fabric.’
In a running commentary, Mary Trump tweeted her advice a few days before the election until Thursday afternoon. She offered her thought about her uncle in this snapshot in time:
‘Our lives are at stake, the quality of our lives is at stake, our humanity is at stake. Thank you @SenDuckworth — Mary L Trump (@MaryLTrump) October 27, 2020’
‘The Supreme Court rules that all absentee ballots must be counted in NC and PA and it’s described as a win for Democrats. But it’s a win for America. The fact that Republicans think it’s a loss for them tells you everything you need to know. #VOTE’
‘If Trump is willing to let hundreds of thousands of Americans die to serve his personal political interests, he will do anything to win. Don’t doubt it for a minute. And the GOP has bought in completely with the Trump-Putin agenda to destroy US democracy. Not an exaggeration.’
‘They’re trying to keep us from voting because there are more of us than there are of them. They’re trying to intimidate us because they are weak. If we stay united, strong, and determined a bunch of idiots blocking traffic can’t stop us. #VOTE’
‘Dems: Here is some help Rural whites: Cool. Do I have to share the help with black people? Dems: Uhh, yeah? Rural whites: FUCK YOU. TAKE YOUR HELP A SHOVE IT. White Pundits: Dems really need better messaging to white working class workers.’
‘Vote for a massive repudiation of everything this administration has inflicted on us. Vote–because it’s our turn to flood the zone. #VOTE’
‘To those who voted for Donald, your “president” is directly responsible for the deaths over 230,000 of your fellow citizens, as well as the kidnapping and caging of innocent children. That’s what you voted for.’
‘Tough night, but hold on, my friends.’
‘Whatever happens, @staceyabrams from is a hero.’
(candidate for georgia Governor 2018, American politician, lawyer, voting rights activist, and author who served in the Georgia House of Representatives)
‘Every vote must be counted. Donald is lying.’
‘We can’t underestimate the role disinformation played in this campaign, but if we don’t face the fact that this country is really fucking racist, nothing will change.’
‘Arrest #LouisDeJoy (Trump’s postmaster general) now.’
