Donald Trump refuses to admit that he lost the election and Republicans are molly-coddling him like the obese baby he is. To avoid the risk of losing favor, everybody is offering him emotional rattles to play with until he stops crying and starts packing his things.
Rick Santorum (yes, he’s still around): “He’s just found out that he’s probably not going to be the president of the United States anymore. This is a very emotional time, give people space to work through this.”
Ari Fleischer: The “decent thing to do is let the president himself take the time he wants to absorb this.”
CNN: Almost everyone around the President — members of his family, senior staffers and outside advisers — believe he will accept defeat and leave the White House in January even if he never publicly acknowledges Biden’s win.
Kayleigh McEnany, On whether Trump would attend Biden’s inauguration: “President Trump believes he will be President Trump, have a second term. I think the president will attend his own inauguration”
Mitch McConnell: “Let’s not have any lectures, no lectures, about how the president should immediately, cheerfully accept preliminary election results.”
Laura Ingraham: “Now, losing, especially when you believe the process wasn’t fair, it’s a gut punch. And I’m not conceding anything tonight, by the way, but, losing, if that’s what happens, it’s awful.
GutlessGutfeld says of Trump: “He redefined the party, because he spoke for people that both the Democrats and the Republicans forgot about. So I think, I think we’re gonna have a HELL of a lot of fun. We’re gonna have two presidents! We’re gonna have two presidents!” (Right. Outa. His. Ass.)
Sean Hannity: “… every American should be angry, outraged and worried and concerned about what happened in the election and the lead-up to the election.”
(Trump talking points)
Perpetually befuddled looking Tucker Carlson claims: the “outcome of our presidential election was seized from the hands of voters”. (This is especially ridiculous considering 2020 had the highest voter turnout percentage since 1900.)
Even Trump’s national security adviser, Robert O’Brien, can’t man-up enough to face his boss head-on. As the Daily Beast reported, O’Brien has:
…pushed national security officials to publicly embrace the absurd Trump message that the election has not been certified and that there are still legal battles playing out across the country that could turn in the president’s favor.
“If you even mention Biden’s name… that’s a no-go, you’d be fired,” one national security official said.
This molly-coddling has gone on long enough. DONALD TRUMP LOST. It doesn’t matter if he cries, sucks his thumb, stomps his feet, or stays in bed hiding under the covers all day, HE STILL LOST. Somebody in that party of impotent cowards needs to find the brass to tell him it’s over.
