Something you’ve probably heard once or twice in the past 15 months is Donald Trump I think I won the last presidential election. “This is a scam on the American public,” he declare at one o’clock in the morning on November 4, 2020, after his lead in various battleground states began to shrink. “This is a shame for this country. We are ready to win this election. Honestly, we won this election. “Of course, this is a bald lie. At that point, Trump didn’t win anything because not all the votes had been counted; later, when they’re here, obviously Joe Biden prevailed.
However, that inconvenient fact clearly hasn’t stopped Trump from trying to stop Biden from moving to the White House, a campaign that includes pressure Justice Department to investigate a crazy claim that Italian satellites changed Trump ballots into Biden ballots, discover confiscation of voting machines, and provoked an uprising that left five dead. Nor is he disheartened by the fact that there continues to be not a single piece of evidence that the 2020 election was hampered by voter fraud. Even the fact that, on January 20, 2021, Joe Biden became president and has been doing that job ever since, failed to convince him.
If anything, Trump has only gone further into the depths, praising how the election was stolen, a place of madness that prompted him, on Tuesday, to demand that his former vice president be fired. investigated for refusing to block Biden’s victory certificate.
In a characteristically feverish, grammatically offensive sentence popular on Twitter, Trump again declare that Mike Pence “Has this right” to change the outcome of the election and that “The Unelected Committee should be investigating…why Mike Pence didn’t return the ballots for reconfirmation or approval.” (Putting that aside, he boldly asserted that if Nancy Pelosi had “implemented my recommendation and significantly increased security” at the Capitol, “there will be no ‘January 6’ as we know it,” which was rich as the man asserted to the rowdy. million supporters that the election was stolen from him, staged a “Stop Theft” rally just before certifying the Electoral College votes and demanding them “the fight“on behalf of him.)
Trump, of course, has worked for Pence for over a year now, although this is the first time he has (publicly) appeared to suggest that perhaps his VP is in favor of stripping a second term. his, despite the fact that Pence… was on Trump’s 2020 ticket. In the run-up to January 6, the former president tried various tactics to convince Pence to prevent Biden’s victory from happening, according to the report. call Protestant Christianity a “vulva” to threatened to end their friendship. Then, at the “Stop Theft” rally before the Capitol attack, Trump told crowd, “I hope Mike does the right thing. I hope so too. I hope so,” and “All Vice President Pence has to do is send it back to the states for recertification and we become the president and you are the happiest” and “Mike Pence will have to pass for us, and if he doesn’t, it will be [a] sad day for our country because you took an oath to defend our Constitution,” and finally, “Mike Pence, I hope you will stand up for the sake of the Constitution and for the good of the country. we. And if you don’t, I will be very disappointed in you. I will tell you now. I don’t get to hear good stories.” In case it’s not clear exactly what Trump wants from the guy.
Nearly a year after Pence certified Biden’s victory, Trump told ABC’s Jonathan Karl that his former Vice President deserved the January 6 exhortations calling for him to be hanged.
Which makes it all the wilder that the worst thing Pence has to do To speak about Trump is that they haven’t really communicated in the past few months but that’s when they “sit down over the next few days.” [January 6]we talked about it, talked about it, [and] We parted amicably. ”
On the other hand!
Maybe the former Vice President simply let people from his inner circle speak for him. Each CNN:
