Donald Trump is clearly no longer interested in actually running the country for the next 40 days. As the death toll from COVID-19 approaches 300,000 dead Americans, Trump is entirely focused, but on all the wrong things.
The number 25, which Trump says he last heard that the Democrats are planning to expand the Supreme Court to, was 26 earlier in the day. Somehow, Democrats decided to drop one potential SCOTUS seat on Friday, but no one mentioned it. In fact, no one has mentioned having 25 justices on the U.S. Supreme Court, either, but truth has never stopped Donald Trump from fear-mongering.
The president has also clearly painted himself into a corner. Many of his supporters in Georgia say they will not vote in the special election in January where Republican Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue are running to keep the Senate under GOP control. They’re refusing to vote because Trump has convinced them that their voting system is rigged and that their Republican governor is in on the scam. So while he endorses Republican candidates, he’s undermining faith in democracy so much that they may lose because of it.
That, however, is no surprise. Donald Trump hasn’t contested the votes in a single state that he won, nor has he contested any Republican win in the states he insists are rigged. The election is rigged, he says, except when he wins.
Twitter had a lot to say to the president who’s doing our enemies’ work for them in convincing Americans that democracy is dead. Read some of their comments below:
