With exquisite slowness, the mail-in voter ballot counters started. The US Postal Service looked under their sorting machines and scraped the bottom of the barrels for the last ballots. But only well after Republicans saw Donald Trump’s power dissolving like the Wicked Witch of the West did they began to peel themselves away from the GOP pack. They began dancing to the song Cool from the 1961 movie West Side Story, snapping their fingers, and singing “Go man, go.” Or not, but it is apropos:

‘Boy, boy, crazy boy, Get cool, boy! Got a rocket in your pocket, Keep coolly cool, boy! Don’t get hot, ‘Cause man, you got Some high times ahead. Take it slow and Daddy-O, You can live it up and die in bed! Boy, boy, crazy boy! Stay loose, boy! Breeze it, buzz it, easy does it. Turn off the juice, boy! Go man, go, But not like a yo-yo schoolboy. Just play it cool, boy, Real cool!’

The media jumped off covering the president’s second press conference almost before it started. It was filled with baseless claims and lies. According to The Associated Press, Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) said:

‘ Trump was within his rights to request recounts and call for investigations where evidence of irregularities exists.

‘But Trump “is wrong to say the election was rigged, corrupt and stolen.″ Romney [tweeted  that] Trump’s claim “damages the cause of freedom here and around the world…”‘

The Utah senator continued:

‘Counting every vote is at the heart of democracy. That process is often long and, for those running, frustrating. The votes will be counted, [and if there are any] irregularities alleged, they will be investigated and ultimately resolved in court. Have faith in democracy, in our Constitution, and in the American people.’Screen-Shot-2020-11-06-at-11.42.18-AM Mitt Romney Publicly Snubs Trump Again Corruption Featured Politics Top Stories

Senator Pat Toomey (R-PA) released a statement of his own urging patience while Pennsylvania went through its ballot-counting process:

‘[Once the state’s final election is] reached and certified, all parties involved must accept the outcome of the election regardless of whether they won or lost.’

After Donald Trump was finally tucked away in front of a group of television sets, he toothlessly tweeted for everyone to “stop the count!”

Toomey appeared on The TODAY show where he said:

‘It’s going to take the time that it takes. I saw the president’s speech last night and it was hard to watch. The president’s charges of large-scale fraud, there’s no evidence here.’

Representative Will Hurd (R-TX) who is retiring tweeted:

‘A sitting president undermining our political process & questioning the legality of the voices of countless Americans without evidence is not only dangerous & wrong, it undermines the very foundation this nation was built upon. Every American should have his or her vote counted.’

Representative Adam Kinzinger,(R-IL) offered Trump strong advice:

‘We want every vote counted, yes every legal vote (of course). But, if you have legit concerns about fraud present EVIDENCE and take it to court. STOP Spreading debunked misinformation. This is getting insane.’

Maryland Governor Larry Hogan (R) actually directly spoke about “the President.” How very brave of him:

‘There is no defense for the President’s comments tonight undermining our Democratic process. America is counting the votes, and we must respect the results as we always have before. No election or person is more important than our Democracy.’

Representative Paul Mitchell, R-MI tweeted:

‘Every legal vote should and will be counted – as they always are. Where there are issues there are ways to address them. If anyone has proof of wrongdoing, it should be presented and resolved. Anything less harms the integrity of our elections and is dangerous for our democracy.

‘I have experienced both losses and victories in elections. Losses hurt deeply – I know that personally. But our nation demands that its political leaders accept both wins and losses with grace and maturity. Let the voters decide.’

Representative Will Hurd also tweeted a statement that read:

‘A sitting president undermining our political process & questioning the legality of the voices of countless Americans without evidence is not only dangerous & wrong, it undermines the very foundation this nation was built upon. Every American should have his or her vote counted.’
