    Trump Descends Further Into The Abyss of His Unreality
    Today Trump demanded of the Georgia Secretary of State that he “find” 11,500 ballots to overturn the election. In a rambling, sometimes incoherent, phone call to Republican Secretary of State Raffensperger, Trump was recorded in one of his most bizarre actions since he was elected.

    Wildly citing conspiracy theories, threatening criminal consequences to the Secretary and his counsel, and falsely claiming he won Georgia by “hundreds of thousands of votes” Trump railed for over an hour before Raffensperger politely ended the call after calmly telling the president his data was wrong.

    The entire call of over an hour was recorded by Raffensperger.

    Accompanied on the call by Mark Meadows and several lawyers, Trump is clearly showing signs of serious mental instability.

    Trump lost the presidential race in Georgia to President-elect Joe Biden by 11,779 votes. Trump pressured Georgia SOS Raffensperger and other officials to "find" enough votes in the state's presidential election to make him the winner. Trump says he needs 11,780 votes. Meanwhile, Sidney Powell claimed, “At least 450,000 ballots in the key states ... miraculously only have a mark for Joe Biden on them, and no other candidate."

    Yep. It was almost as bizarre as an American Pres telling the entire country that the attack on Benghazi was due to an offensive video when he knew that it was actually an act of terror, and doing so just a few weeks prior to a close election.

    Record low unemployment. Replaced terrible trade deal with the new and much better USMCA. Appointed pro-life, pro-Constitution SCOTUS judges. Moved American embassy to Jerusalem. Reduced American military obligations overseas. American economy improved noticeably prior to world-wide COVID problem. 400,000 new manufacturing jobs. United States became energy independent. Got out of the useless Paris Accords. No Benghazis. Opened up new areas for responsible energy development. NATO allies are spending $69 billion more on defense since 2016.

    Not too bad for an unhinged guy. But even at that, I don't "follow him". I vote for those who are pro-life and pro-America. When they are wrong, I will criticize them.

    You must pay closer attention. I think Trump has bungled the whole issue of voting irregularities. If he has significant evidence, then he should make it public.

    Speaking of unhinged, at least Trump never closed a prayer with,” amen and awoman”. That’s so absurd that it’s hard to characterize it.

    I don't want to leave out Trump's other attorney, the insane Lin Wood who called for the execution of VP Pence because Pence rejected the law suit attempting to cast him in the role of throwing out the electoral college tally.

    He also demanded McConnell be arrested for acknowledging the election winner as Biden.

    If ever we needed Divine Providence to watch over the USA, it is now.

    The dufus has been fact checked for years throughout his presidency and his lack of truth hasn't stopped him or changed his thirst for exaggeration or deceit, or drama that's over the top nor has his defeat in November diminished his sychophants, supporters or enablers. Evidence means nothing and only lawful eviction/convictions gets him from the peoples house, or TV. Till then the antics continue and who can be surprised at that?

    He can't descend any lower than he's always been and the lying cheating stealing bully has always been a bottom feeder. His latest antics only add to stuff he will be held in account for...hopefully!

    Silly season is almost over Clete, at least for this cycle. The civil war continues. The Frankenstein monster is hard to kill because some of the villagers actually like him. Can they save him? I don't think so.

    I think you meant Sherman. Canute was the guy in England holding back the tide and all that.

    Good linked article.
