A vindictive Trump seeks to undermine Biden's presidency

It has been almost three weeks since President Trump stepped to a lectern in the White House in the early hours of Nov. 4 to declare that the election was being stolen from him. It was a fabrication designed to turn President-elect Joe Biden into an illegitimate president and has continued apace ever since. It will not stop with Bidenís swearing-in on Jan. 20.

Any thoughts Trump might have had of overturning the election were a failed enterprise from the start. On Friday, those hopes were dealt twin blows when Georgiaís secretary of state certified Biden as the winner there and Republican legislative leaders from Michigan, after meeting with the president, signaled they would do nothing to try to undermine the results. Biden has an electoral college majority, and the certification process continues to gather steam.

Through these weeks, the president and his legal team have failed to produce credible evidence of systematic or widespread fraud. Now they are resorting to wild allegations of a grand conspiracy on the part of Biden and the Democrats ó charges repeatedly debunked. This effort is being led by Rudolph W. Giuliani, who was once a reputable mayor of New York. These claims of fraud are in themselves a fraudulent and cynical enterprise.

Judging by his actions, Trump appears to have a motive other than overturning the election. He is determined to cripple Bidenís presidency even before it becomes official. No defeated president has ever undertaken such an audacious and anti-democratic act. There are short-term and longer-term consequences that could deeply affect Bidenís ability to govern.

1. Paywall

Obviously, the Justice Dept. is not going to do anything about this. And I know Biden is loathe to do so, but his only recourse may be to bring a lawsuit against trump to stop this shit.

3. Trump will burn in Hell, as God and Jesus KNOW and SEE who he really is.

A loathsome, despicable, sorry excuse of human excrement.

6. That's just another...

That's just another example of how truly TOXIC he has been all along.

When he said he was going to drain the swamp, he didn't say he was going to make it into a steaming, stinky septic tank with effluent and bobbing turds everywhere.

This is par for the course for him. Even though it gets him nowhere and nothing his compulsion to get even is just being exacerbated and inflamed.

His toxic missiles were lobbed everywhere, with a dark strategy we see even now. His appointments to EVERY agency had a clear-cut subversive and destructive intent. Everything he had his hands in reeks of his slimy blubber and orange stench. Even our global media branch and Post Office have been compromised.

When I see Trump supporters want to thank, honor and die for the man, I assume that they really have no in-depth idea what has been going on.

It's just baffling and makes no sense in any way, despite all the plausible explanations we've heard...
