State, federal, and now the Supreme Court may have said no to all manner of challenges to Election 2020, but the president, as ever, fights on. Vowing to go forward with every arrow in his quiver, a defiant Trump told the Sunday edition of Fox and Friends: “No, it’s not over.”
“They give us very little time. But we caught them, as you know, as fraudulent, dropping ballots, doing so many things, nobody can even believe it,” he flatly stated. If Saturday’s “Stop the Steal” event in Washington, DC is any indication, the president’s supporters aren’t anywhere near ready to give up the ship.
If anything, the attitude among many conservatives who voted for the president as well as the man himself is taking more of a “damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead” attitude. This comes after mayhem and violence occurred following a rally of thousands in the District of Columbia on December 12. That event did not end too well – at least four people were stabbed and 23 arrested as pro-Trump, and ANTIFA activists clashed Saturday evening.
Mr. Trump maintains the Democrats outsmarted the GOP and that the election was rigged. Statisticians and political data analysts agree that the election’s sum does not correspond to its parts. This appears to be a sticking point because millions of Americans are left to believe that something went down in the early hours of November 4 that has yet to be explained. Thus far, there has not been a court in the land willing to explore these inexplicable incongruities.
Tomorrow, December 14, the Electoral College will vote – and that, Mr. Trump insists – may set up “having an illegitimate president.” Such as it is, the nation remains deeply divided over this election, and just pushing past all the questions and concerns of so many Americans does not appear to be a suitable answer. One wonders what harm could come from a closer look at the claims, the evidence, and the queries into an election that has defied historic statistics.
Thus, it remains to be seen what power rests in the president’s hands to get to the bottom of this national election crisis. Just moving on with little in the way of answers or understanding does not appear to be an acceptable path forward and may, in fact, cause even more upheaval.
For sure, President Trump has proven he is a fighter; he believes right is on his side, but the question that continues to vex is what can be done to prove that a fraudulent election took place.
