The election wasn’t rigged. Donald Trump lost. It’s that simple.
Back in 2016 when he was elected I was stunned, in disbelief, like many Americans. How could we have elected such a knucklehead? The man is famous for what? Being famous, that’s what. There’s zero substance to him. He made it because his daddy, the original Trump grifter, kept him afloat. If he’d ventured out on his own without that support he’d be a nobody, just like most of us.
As it is daddy did back him. He gave him some cash to get started, $1MM apparently, and bought a bunch of chips from his faltering casino to keep it afloat.
I do have to give him this. He is one of the best grifters of all time.
To say he’s some sort of business genius is about 1/2 right. He’s good at the grift, which has poured lots and lots of money into his pockets, but he can’t really run a successful business. He claims to be a billionaire but we have no transparency into that. He more likely work a few million dollars given his huge debt. Although he is fixing that by asking his supporters to send him money.
The man would lie, set his children on fire, and shoot his wife, no questions asked if he could make a few bucks from it. I suspect Melania will divorce the man soon after he leaves office. Who knows which of the kids will end up serving some time in a state prison. Guess we’ll find out.
Anywho. Enough of that. Let’s get back to the rigged election. Back in 2015, as early as August of that year, Trump had already started his “the election is rigged” talk. Imagine his surprise when he won. He didn’t go on a rant claiming it was rigged. No, he won, why would he? This is where the lying and grift enter the picture. How do you get all of your supporters fired up? Well you tell them their vote didn’t matter because some force has rigged the election. We haven’t entered aliens rigged it phase yet, I’m sure we’ll get there at some point. So, your white supremacist, QAnon loving, knuckleheads back your play. IT WAS RIGGED! THE DEMOCRATS RIGGED THE ELECTION!
No. They didn’t. You’re just pissed off because your demagogue was voted out of office. I understand that feeling. The day after the 2016 election I had to leave work because it made me physically ill to think how much Trump was going to screw up the country. He did. Luckily we all survived to get him out.
I’m looking forward to having a compassionate, intelligent, science believing, leader in the White House surrounded by people that know what they’re doing and care for our country. The Trump grift will continue but at least it won’t be at our expense any longer.
