Rubbing Trump's Face in His Loss Isn't Just Fun--It's Important

So Tuesday is the day. December 8 is the ďsafe harborĒ deadline by which all the states must resolve all election-related disputes. Then the electors vote next Monday, but that†should†be anti-climatic, because over the weekend, Biden was certified the winner in California, which gave him 279 electoral votes, and it doesnít look right now as if electors are going to be replaced anywhere; the crazy-ass Republicans of Pennsylvania are up to something, but it looks like itís mainly for show. So as of 5 p.m. Tuesday, itíll basically be over.

Donald Trump will know it. Heíll†try to pretend otherwise, even though itís obvious to anyone with an IQ higher than the life expectancy in his beloved Russia that itís all just a massive griftóa financial grift to get his bag-of-hammers-dumb supporters to pay off his debts, and a psychological grift of both his sucker admirers and†the cowardly Republicans†who know better but have the spines of amphibians and still wonít do something so basic as call Joe Biden the president-elect. (By the way, after Jan. 20, will they call him Mr. President? Sadly, this is a serious question.)

Trump knows. He knows he is a historic loser. And he is in pain. Heís humiliated. And Iím overjoyed. Iíve never been big on schadenfreude, but this is one occasion when itís absolutely called for. Politics, like war, relies on both sides agreeing on a winner. When that breaks down, that's precisely when brutal mockery is in order, since that's still much more civil and preferable to endless rhetorical let alone martial conflict. So thereís never been anyone in American politics more deserving of total humiliation, and besides that, itís important for the sake of this countryís future for decent people today to keep saying and saying how hideous the Trump era was. Memories, as we know, are all too short.

2. Doesn't matter anyway.

I suspect he'll keep telling his base that there are still legal battles that can ultimately overturn the election - so keep that money rolling in to pay for the next round of legal fees.

And they'll believe every word of it.

3. That will be one of a series of money making scams until the day he dies.

He can't help himself and we need to accept that he will constantly be in the news. Hopefully, the legit media won't give him air time, regardless of ratings. Ego and $$$ are his motives for everything he does.
