Despite having lost some sixty court cases (including two in the Supreme Court), and being ridiculed repeatedly by reality-based observers, Donald Trump is continuing to rant incoherently about his delusional belief that he won the presidential election. He is terminally obsessed with having been decisively beaten by Joe Biden, someone he tried to malign as “sleepy” and “unfit for office.”

At this point it's becoming somewhat comical to see each new complaint by Trump that the election was “rigged,” and “stolen” from him, despite failing to provide any evidence to the dozens of courts that ruled against him. And during his regularly scheduled Saturday morning tweetstorm Trump added to the cacophony of crazy with this surprisingly compact collection of falsehoods:
That's five blatant lies crammed into one little tweet. Trump is getting good at that. In fact, he's been “honored” by PolitiFact four years running for their “Lie of the Year” award (which Trump hysterically tried to pawn off on Biden) Just for fun, let's break down this little gem of asininity:
“He didn't win the election.”
The “He” here is, of course, President-Elect Joe Biden. Only a severely disturbed individual could make this claim after losing an election by more than seven million votes and 83 electoral college votes.
“He lost all 6 Swing States…”
Trump is referring to Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia, Arizona, and Nevada. They all certified the victory for Biden. Several of those states have Republican governors and/or legislatures.
“…by a lot.”
Once again, the margin of Biden's victory in the electoral college was 306 to 232. That's the same margin that Trump won with in 2016, and he called it a landslide.
“They then dumped hundreds of thousands of votes in each one.”
If Trump has any proof of this, for some reason he withheld it from the judges in the nearly sixty lawsuits he filed. He's either concealing some secret, ingenious legal strategy, or he's certifiably insane. I'm going with the latter.
“…and got caught.
HUH? Notice that Trump doesn't identify anyone who was allegedly “caught.” That's because nobody was “caught.” And nobody was “caught” because nobody did anything wrong.
The one thing that Trump got right in this tweet was his warning to Republicans saying “Don’t be weak fools!” That's good advice for anyone. Particularly Republicans who have demonstrated unprecedented cowardice by supporting Trump's ludicrous contention that he won an election that he so badly lost. But the GOP bootlickers are merely striving to emulate Trump who has cornered the market on both weakness and foolishness.
Finally, for some reason Trump posted a link to an article in the despicable Rupert Murdoch's New York Post. The article, attributed vaguely to the “Post Editorial Board”, was a ridiculous criticism of Stephen Colbert's interview of Joe Biden. They actually thought it was an insult to say that a comedian's interview was a joke. And even worse…
“‘Late Show' host Stephen Colbert actually managed to set a new record for wet media kisses delivered to Joe Biden in his long sit-down with the prez-elect.”
Seriously? A newspaper that's part of the faux journalistic, Fox News/Murdoch, right-wing confederacy of conservative butt-kissers, is making this complaint about a late-night talk show host? Have they never seen Trump “interviewed” by Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Lou Dobbs, Maria Bartiromo, or any of the “Curvy Couch” potatoes of Fox and Friends? Those affairs are always utterly humiliating tongue baths that leave a telltale orange residue.
The Colbert interview, while not strictly journalism, was actually an entertaining and revealing look into a more personal side of Biden and the First Lady-elect, Dr. Jill Biden (videos below). Which is what entertainment shows are supposed to do. Even so, the buzzards who make up the Post Editorial Board could learn something about journalism from Colbert.
