Trump’s Lawsuit Amounts To “A Tweet With A Filing Fee,” But That’s Not The Whole Strategy

Nov 6, 2020

By Andrew L. Seidel

Stop the counting!

Keep counting!

These contradictory demands lie at the heart of Trump’s legal strategy to steal the 2020 election.

You can see it in the opposing chant of Trump supporters in The Recount’s remarkable side-by-side video of small MAGA mobs in Arizona and Michigan; rats piped to their nearest polling place by the dog whistles of Trump himself.

The Trump campaign and the Republican party have filed new lawsuits in GeorgiaMichigan, and Pennsylvania joining the lawsuits filed before Election Day in nearly every swing state. Trump also wants a recount in Wisconsin. (Under Wisconsin law, parties asking for a recount when the margin of victory is greater than 0.25% have to pay for the recount. Jill Stein paid $3.5 million for the 2016 recount. Trump has 45 days to pay if the recount doesn’t change the outcome, but given Trump’s penchant for stiffing his contractors, Wisconsin would be wise to ask for payment up front.)

  • President Snowflake doesn’t deserve to go on a tour of the White House let alone live there.

    And obviously he’s laser-focused on fixing the country’s “broken” voting system: because he’s already golfing at his own debt-ridden Mar-a-Douche-o.

    I’m guessing he’ll milk as much taxpayer money as he can in his remaining days, and then he’ll announce that he’s running in 2024 while he’s still president. How tremendously tremendous.

    And so the sad rallies will continue, his control over the Rethuglican party will continue, and his whining for attention will continue all the same. Maybe he’ll push for the creation of TNN, the Trumpy News Network, by way of OAN.

    But, hey, at least he’ll have zero *tangible* power for the next four years, though I’m sure he’ll have “insiders” who are keeping him in the loop with all the “Biden corruption” going on. Blah blah blah. He can barf on the sidelines all he wants, so long as he’s nowhere near real power again.

    With all that said, I wonder when the South American angels will get here.

  • I agree with Dave137’s predictions.

    And I place a lot of blame for Trump’s popularity on reporters, journalists and the news medias and social sites. Sadly those people and organizations still don’t taken their responsibility in dealing with Trump seriously.

    Today I read a quote from former Obama White House counsel, Bob Bauer, that every American,  journalist and reporter should read and take to heart.

    He said: “In Donald Trump’s case, you have to separate fantasy from reality. You don’t want to help him elevate his more fantastic pronouncements by overreacting to them because that’s what he wants you to do. He wants everybody to chase him into fantasy land, and that helps him control the narrative.”

    There will always be a “Trump”. Let’s hope the future ones don’t get 24/7 overreaction coverage of their fantasies.
