A child with a tantrum
Mr. Trump is behaving like a child with a tantrum, not getting what he wants. Our “president” is a child dressed up as an adult. Our precious resources are being used to satisfy his insatiable thirst for attention and power. Time to grow up, Donnie, and be a man.
Trump is a sore loser
Sore losers are those who clearly lose but cannot accept their loss. Kids who are sore losers become enraged and want revenge.
You’d think that after declaring bankruptcy and demonstrating numerous times that he lacks business acumen, the Donald would know about losing. Apparently not!
The worst of sore losers are those who destroy the playing field on the way out. It seems that this is exactly what sore loser Trump is committed to doing to our democracy. He cannot pick up our White House and go home; he must leave.
The principle behind democracy is that if the current holder of an elected position loses, that person ensures a smooth transition to the next occupant. Democratic presidents also do this.
For four years, Dear Leader has been committed to undermining the health of Americans and undermining our democracy in the service of self, family, and despotic dictators across the globe. That behavior has been squarely rejected by the voters. It’s time for Trump and his cult followers to vacate the swamp they have created and go home. You lose! It’s time to go!
We now need to take back the Senate from Trump’s corrupt enablers.
Fox News helped Trump
So, the election was close. It should have been a landslide for Biden since his opponent is an habitual liar and cheat. Trump wouldn’t have fared so well without Fox News; they are soul mates.
A number of years ago there was a study done on bias in the media. The results of the study were published in Scientific American magazine.
The results showed that Fox News showed bias twice as often as other news outlets. Fox News is the Republican propaganda channel; very much like Russian or Chinese news. Many of Fox News’ staff have joined the Trump administration. What does that tell you?
As my 95-year-old father-in-law used to say, “Fox News will poison your brain.” There are many other sources of news out there, folks. Look around and give ’em a try. And for God’s sake and the sake of our country, please don’t buy into the conspiracy trash on the internet.
