Come and walk down memory lane with Gabriel Sterling, the Georgia election official who predicted, “Somebody’s going to get killed,” if Donald Trump kept persisting in his Big Lie, that the 2020 election was stolen and that that State of Georgia held the key to that theft. I’m sure we all remember when the Washington Post broke the audio of Trump begging then-Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to help him “find” over eleven thousand votes — like it was an Easter egg hunt, or something. “C’mon man, it’s just a little chocolate egg. Roll it my way. What’s the harm?”

The harm is that we actually had somebody in the White House that thought himself above the Constitution. That’s a first. Or, if not a “first” at least it can be safely said that if somebody had previously held the highest office in our land and thought themselves above the Constitution, it was a closely guarded secret. They certainly didn’t broadcast it. Not so in Trump world. Trump never read the Constitution, didn’t care to read it or know about it. He simply wanted what he wanted. The intriguing thing about this clip and what happened in 2020 was that Trump thought that any Republican would necessarily be a little foot soldier in his personal army and he was totally shocked when that wasn’t the case. You can hear it in his voice.

Here’s a link to a documentary of Brad Raffensperger stating that the ballots had been counted three times. Trump just couldn’t handle losing Georgia. He took a kind of special affront to losing Georgia and Arizona and those two states became his own personal ground zero.

Maricopa County then became a zoo. MAGA grifters began cleaning up right and left as ballots were sought by the likes of “cyber ninjas” people who had zero experience in politics but nevertheless were paid princely fees for investigative non existent red herrings. Do bamboo ballots from China ring any bells?

And make no mistake. Trump will do it again. He’ll claim another loss in 2024 and if his MAGA cult keeps funding him, he’ll most likely make another run in 2028.

The irony here is that the GOP could pull the plug on this anytime that they want to, but they can’t bring themselves to do it. A combination of a fascination with Trump’s extremist vocal minority MAGA base, and a vacuum of leadership in the party (with the novice Mike Johnson and the on-his-last-legs, zoned out Mitch McConnel) make it impossible for the GOP to get beyond Trump.

Some voices cry out for just that. Liz Cheney does, certainly, so does Paul Ryan and a number of others. But contrast them with J.D. Vance, Elise Stefanik, Kristi Noem, Tim Scott, we could go on and on, and MAGA is entrenched. Trump will run MAGA until death them do part. Probably the only question now, is how is that political death to be accomplished? Kool-aide? Incarceration? Something else?

    After all, he owns a whinery

  2. dingleberry’s inability to realize 2+2=4, water is wet, gravity works regardless of who you are when you leap off a building, and other inconvenient facts expands the “marvel”. The “marvel” being who in the f*ck could, in their wildest hallucinations, think this moron should have been anywhere near the oval.

  3. I would add that the Georgia officials not just stood for the constitution, but for right and wrong. Of course, those are not concepts in tRump’s mind, except loyalty to him is right and all else is wrong.
