Schaden-Friday is a bit lower-key this week, thanks to our being collectively terrorized by the Ocher Uprising. But that doesn’t mean it’s canceled. Schaden-Friday is never canceled.
And this week we have a doozy. Trump supporters shouting at Lindsey Graham after he failed to pull another Trump term out of his Keebler elf hat.
Lindsey Graham was a faithful Trump toady right up to the end, when he said this …
“All I can say is count me out. Enough is enough,” Graham said in a fast-talking, sometimes free-wheeling five-minute address to the Senate. He argued that both the courts and others had no proof of voter fraud and that even though he had been a stalwart supporter of Trump in recent years, it was time to move on.
“Final thing: Joe Biden. I've traveled the world with Joe. I hoped he'd lose. I prayed he would lose. He won. He is the legitimate president of the United States,” Graham said. “I cannot convince people, certain groups, by my words, but I will tell you by my actions, that maybe I — among, above all others in this body — need to say this: Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are lawfully elected and will become the president and the vice president of the United States on January the 20th.”
Sounds pretty reasonable. Actually, it’s the only thing that sounds reasonable. Joe Biden is president-elect, after all.
But reason doesn’t work with the MAGA crowd. You’re either with the ocher abomination or you’re against him. And now Lindsey’s dry white toast, like most of the rest of Trump’s tin soldiers.
This could not be more delicious.
And you’re welcome.
