Donald J. Trump lost the popular vote by 81,283,098 to 74,222,958. He lost the Electoral College vote by 306 to 232. Yet, he wants to continue as America’s president.
As he did in 2016, Trump has made baseless claims of massive voter fraud in connection with the November 3, 2020 election. His Departments of Justice and Homeland Security dispute this claim. The Republican-dominated federal judiciary has rejected this false claim, as well.
First Lady Melania Trump has packed her bags to go back home to New York. A clear majority of American voters have fired her husband.
At this juncture, Trump is a delusional, narcissistic, egomaniac who simply cannot accept rejection. Since Trump’s defeat, he has fought long and hard to instill a modern-day version of “minority rule” in America’s 245-year democracy.
Trump’s post-election antics have permanently damaged the Republican Party brand. No party leader has been able to talk sense into this demented buffoon. Accordingly, Trump has disgraced himself, as well as a large group of sincere and loyal followers who agreed with his public policies even as they held their nose at the stench emanating from Trump’s many character flaws.
The worst for Republicans will come in the next few months when evidence of the crimes against humanity that were committed by Trump, White House staffer Stephen Miller, and other government officials against innocent men, women and children migrants of color at our Southern border surface. After January 20, 2021, Republicans in Washington will no longer be able to suppress this evidence. This is when our moral, political and legal reckoning as a nation will occur.
This is also when the label “Trumper” will become a badge of shame for most Trump supporters. For the white supremacists in the Trump fold, Trump’s name will live in infamy and he will be enshrined in their hearts along with Adolf Hitler.
For the rest of us, America will be “great again” once Trump leaves office.
