Yesterday, Nov 26th, Trump spoke to reporters after participating in a Thanksgiving teleconference with members of the United States Military, at the White House.
He said he would leave the White House when the time came, after the electoral college votes for President-elect Joe Biden.
“Certainly I will, and you know that,” he said when asked directly about what he will do. It wasn’t quite a concession of defeat but it was the closest to that for a president who had not explicitly said he was going to leave on Jan. 20. Making it clear that his statement didn’t represent a massive change in tone though, Trump immediately continued to say he would keep doubting the results of the election with baseless claims of voter fraud. “I think that there will be a lot of things happening between now and the 20th of January, a lot of things. Massive fraud has been found,” he insisted without providing evidence.
Trump said he would leave the White House after he repeatedly danced around the question of whether he would concede to Biden once the electoral college votes. “It’s going to be a very hard thing to concede because we know there was massive fraud,” Trump said without evidence. Pressed on the issue, Trump said that if the electoral college votes for Biden “they made a mistake, because this election was a fraud” and repeatedly said that the United States was “like a third world country.”
There are of course several massive lies in these two paragraphs, and they are ignore only because Trump has shown himself to be a massive, rotten, comical liar all throughout his term who isn't even smart enough to call wolf -- he just half-barks and then staggers down to the village seemingly drunk.
But repeatedly saying the United States is "like a third world country?"
Are the 70+M people who voted for him going to accept that? Or will they just fall down in obedience to whatever their godlike idiot says?
Has Trump ever even been in a third world country? (Which now, by the way, are called developing countries.)
Which? These are the ones he calls "shithole countries," right?
Are his voters going to stand for that, for being told they live in a shithole country?
Of course they will. Because they have no self-pride -- look at all they have accepted the last four years. Clearly there isn't anything they won't swallow for Trump's fascism, for thinking they are part of his us versus them.
As for the rest of us, we are only too glad to ignore this ignorant, derelict, cretin made impotent and are counting the days until he fades from view. He won't be back in 2024. Even the deplorables will eventually realize they're glad to see him gone, and will soon be on to the next wanna-be fascist.
