If you were interested in doing some good for the country, you’d be on the phone toMeadows and Klain, and McConnell and Pelosi, trying to help work out an urgent COVID relief package. I once knew a bright young legislator who might have tried to do this. His name was Marco Rubio. https://t.co/zBMwQR2DG4
Trump is lazy and incompetent. Even if he weren’t, he’s only one man. None of the damage he’s done would have been possible, none that he’s now doing would be possible, without his enablers. They share the responsibility. They share the guilt. They ought to share the opprobrium.
.@VP should also hold a press conference and speak to the nation, and especially to Trump-Pence supporters, as the head of the coronavirus task force, to tell them to wear masks, socially distance, don't congregate unsafely, etc., in this crisis moment in the pandemic. https://t.co/c6peVYkHu2
If @VP had a shred of dignity and an ounce of courage, he would say today: "We've lost. I know the president doesn't want to accept this. But it's important for the nation that we tell the truth and begin to move on. I've called Vice-President-Elect Harris to congratulate her." https://t.co/0EFxAYDPzV
There will be more new COVID cases today than MAGA marchers in D.C. There could well be more hospitalizations than marchers. Trump has encouraged the marchers but, putting first things first, is off to play golf. What he’s not doing is anything to help deal with the pandemic.
"The unusual way the Trump campaign is divvying up the contributions has drawn scrutiny from election watchdogs, who say Trump and his family are poised to financially benefit from the arrangement. 'This is a slush fund. That’s the bottom line.'" https://t.co/bjeOMqs0ht
To those I’ve triggered by expressing alarm at alarming things, I apologize. I didn’t realize how uncomfortable it would make so many conservatives to be alerted to the fact that a lawless president, supported by much of his party, is seeking to overturn a free and fair election.
Given Trump's likely behavior over the next two months, with lots of pressure on the two Georgia senators to echo him, but with some moderate conservatives wanting them to be more responsible, it's possible Democrats could win the runoffs. Then we end up with a Democratic Senate.
Trump and his apparatchiks like Jason Miller aren’t uninformed about how votes are cast, or confused about how long it takes to count them. They know what they’re doing. They’ve given up trying to win the election. They’re trying to lay the groundwork for stealing it.
