PA Secretary Of State Calls Out Trump’s Brazen Incompetence

We should not be surprised that Donald Trump has not conceded the November presidential election. In fact, he has sued various states and individuals over 30 times in recent weeks and lost. But what is at the bottom of his desperate attempts? Now, he does not act like a president. Instead, resembles a jilted teenage girl begging her boyfriend to take her back after she cheated on him?

His actions are pathetic. Trump’s actions embarrass the country, even as the world sends out a sigh of relief. Even so, this president remained fixated on some of the elections

The Secretary of State responsible for monitoring the Georgia elections, Brad Raffensberger is a Republican, but one where “Integrity still matters.” Donald Trump has been obsessed with Georgia and has harassed Raffensberger, trying to get him to throw the presidential election, according to The Washington Post: 

‘It was like a rumor WhacK-A-Mole. I don’t think I had a choice. My job is to follow the law. We’re not going to get pushed off the needle on doing that. Integrity still matters.’

Raffensberger said it never crossed his mind to give in to Trump. His own duty was to guard the state elections. He noted that “People made wild accusations:”

‘People made wild accusations about the voting systems that we have in Georgia. They were asking, “How do we get to 270? How do you get it to Congress so they can make a determination?” I’m not supposed to put my thumb on the Republican side.’

The president latched onto a false conspiracy theory that the voting machines made by Dominion Voting System were rigged to move his votes over to Biden. He simply can not grasp that he lost. After all, it may be the first time he has not been able to bully, threaten, or buy off someone. POTUS would turn to one of his senior officials and ask:

‘Do you think there’s really something here? I’m hearing . . . ‘

Raffensberger saw the insanity of Trump’s efforts:

‘People need to get a grip on reality. If Republicans don’t start condemning this stuff, then I think they’re really complicit in it. It’s time to stand up and be counted. Are you going to stand for righteousness?’

‘Are you going to stand for integrity? Or are you going to stand for the wild mob? You wanted to condemn the wild mob when it’s on the left side. What are you going to do when it’s on our side?’

Many of Trump’s allies went after Raffensberg:

‘A number of Trump allies tried to pressure Raffensperger, the Republican secretary of state, into putting his thumb on the scale. Republican Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler — both forced into runoff elections on Jan. 5 — demanded Raffensperger’s resignation.’

‘Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.), a Trump friend who chairs the powerful Senate Judiciary Committee, called Raffensperger to seemingly encourage him to find a way to toss legal ballots.’

Then, Raffensperger certified the state’s results. Governor Brian Kemp said he would make a televised statement. People feared the Trump might have “gotten to the governor.” The secretary of state’s deputy Jordan Fuchs feared that the vote would come down to 5,000 votes, according to The Newsweek Magazine. He said:

“This can’t be good.’

Fortunately, Kemp stood up against the Trump barrage and held formalized the certification. If nothing else, this presidency has shown the many holes in our electoral system and other laws:

‘As governor, I have a solemn responsibility to follow the law, and that is what I will continue to do. We must all work together to ensure citizens have confidence in future elections in our state.’
