It’s beginning to feel as though Donald Trump’s attempts to overturn a democratic election in court will never end, but on January 21, 2021, Joe Biden will still be inaugurated. Trump’s Sunday night Twitter tirade proved that he still hasn’t quite accepted that.
A popular Trump team argument that the election was rigged against Trump is that Biden could not have possibly topped President Obama’s win in 2012, where he got 65 million votes, while Biden got more than 80 million. Clearly, the Trump team does not understand the desperation Americans felt to oust Trump from the White House. His presidency has been a failure that has affected millions of American lives, including the family members of 250,000 loved ones who passed away after contracting COVID-19.
Perhaps the most laughably ironic tweet, however, is the one praising Sydney Powell, a lawyer who was dismissed from the Trump legal team for being too much of a conspiracy theorist, won a court battle in Georgia to exclude ballots counted with Dominion voting machines. Dominion has become as much a trigger word for Trump supporters as “Burisma,” “Fusion GPS,” and “fake news” have been. By the time Trump tweeted about the win, the judge had already reversed it.
Trump just can’t seem to understand how he lost so badly, how even Republicans who voted for down-ballot candidates failed to vote for him. Apparently, he wasn’t paying attention during the elections when voters described just how important it was that Trump’s presidency end.
