At times, it really seems as if Donald Trump is trying to start a civil war between his supporters and literally everyone else. After losing to Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential elections by 74 electoral college votes and over seven million popular votes, Trump has made use of his strategy of turning his supporters against anyone who isn’t “loyal” to him. On Saturday, it was Republican senators, Supreme Court justices, and the Department of Justice he threw under the bus, and it’s sure his supporters will go after them.
The “ugly chapter” in our country’s history is not made up of fake “evidence” of voter fraud, it’s the undermining of democracy, the great democratic experiment of the United States torn to shreds, with Trump supporters fully believing that Republicans, Democrats, the Supreme Court, election officials and governors in every swing state he lost, judges in the federal court system, and vote counting machines all conspired against Trump to deny him the presidency.
None of the things that Trump is accusing everyone of – including collecting votes from dead people and undocumented immigrants – are remotely true. As long as money keeps flowing into Trump’s political action committee under the guise of a legal fund to support Trump’s court cases related to “voter fraud,” none of which has made it through a judge in any court yet, he will keep pushing the lie. Trump is motivated by fame and money, the people who support him be damned.
Twitter made it clear that they aren’t buying it. Read some of their comments below:
