The fat man refuses to sing. Despite the results of the Electoral College vote, Donald Trump still declines to concede. Like a Tinpot Despot wannabe, Trump continues to dig in his heels and claim the 2020 Presidential Election was rigged. Why is Trump doing this? Has he merely lost his grasp on reality, or is he consciously evil. Too many Republican lawmakers are joining Trump in his folly, and that is a horrifying assault on American democracy. People need to ask themselves if Trump is insane, or just a traitor?
As they become desperate to make their unfounded case of voter fraud stick, the Trump Administration has resorted to increasingly bold allegations and threats. White House and Trump Campaign spokesperson Kayleigh McEnany continues to claim that Trump may remain President for an additional term, and Trump himself is now threatening criminal charges against Republican lawmakers that do not assist his efforts. That is insane. Insane treason even.
With this retweet, Trump is claiming that Georgia Governor Brian Kemp and Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger are Chinese assets, and that they can both expect criminal charges for failing to overturn the Georgia election results. Such a move is consciously evil. Yet, for some reason, Republican lawmakers are looking the other way, and often encouraging Trump.
Now let’s be clear. Trump is angry with Kemp and Raffensperger because they did not do his bidding. In fact, Trump has been publicly harassing the Georgia Governor and his Secretary of State for weeks because they are following the law. Honestly, does anyone actually believe that the Republican leadership of Georgia are trying to criminally cheat Trump out of an election win? That is what Trump wants everyone to believe. Unable to offer proof for his claims, Trump constantly attempts to intimidate election officials.

Specifically, Trump has stated that Georgia Secretary of State Raffensperger, who is in charge of Georgia’s elections is an “enemy of the people”. Well, that is a serious allegation and should not be thrown around lightly. Why? Calling someone an enemy of the people is irresponsible because it puts them in danger.
Donald Trump has called his critics — especially in the press — “enemies of the people.” I have never gotten used to it. It’s not just blah blah to me. This phrase was used in the French Revolution, and in the Soviet Union, and in Cambodia, under the Khmer Rouge — it has a history. A blood-soaked one.National Review
What is Trump’s intention? That his fans will descend on the State of Georgia with their pitchforks? That is the kind of thing that happens in unstable countries led by a Tinpot Despot. Since Trump started attacking him, Raffensperger and his wife have received death threats and require 24 hour security. That is not cool. Even if Raffensperger committed a crime, which by all accounts he has not, the remedy is not for the POTUS to Tweet out allegations. That is what a Tinpot Dictator does.
“When you lose an election, you should leave quietly. It’s the will of the people that has been expressed. I wish the election had been a resounding trumping of the left, but It didn’t work out that way.”Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger
Americans need to decide if they are willing to put up with this kind of behavior from a POTUS. Now that Trump has worked so hard to undermine the democratic process, other opportunists know what is possible. That should frighten everyone, because next time, the Tinpot Despot could be smart.
