This is an out-in-the-open coup. We do not know whether Donald Trump’s ham-handed attempt will win or fail. America used to go to other countries undergoing a banana dictatorship takeover. Now that we are living through one, the Republican Senate Leader Moscow Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has been poisoned by power and just goes along with Trump. Nearly all the Republican senators sit in silent assent, afraid of losing their power instead of protecting their constituency. What good are they, if they do nothing?
Longtime diplomat Ken Burns told Axios that people should be forewarned:
‘Donald Trump is doing more damage to American democracy than Russia or China or Iran or North Korea could ever do with their cyberattacks on us. I think it’s the most serious threat to our democracy in my lifetime.’
In his tweetfest, Trump showed his hand, because there is no one to keep him from running wild. He claimed voting irregularities, “fake ballots,” and disabled poll watchers made the election in “certain swing states” invalid. Wrong. Then, Twitter dinged him:
‘In certain swing states, there were more votes than people who voted, and in big numbers. Does that not really matter? Stopping Poll Watchers, voting for unsuspecting people, fake ballots and so much more. Such egregious conduct. We will win!’
‘This claim about election fraud is disputed.’
Twitter world went crazy after this Trump tweet. Check out some of our favorites below:
