Donald Trump has completely berserk meltdown
Donald John Trump went nuts on Friday night and took to truth social, where he proceeded to rant like the crazy person he is, using all caps to heighten the drama. But I do not really want to talk about Trump himself. I want to talk about what he demanded because, once again, this demand will cause republicans headaches.
Trump demanded that we end mail-in voting. Trump arrogantly demanded that Republican governors start taking the steps necessary to rid the world of that pesky little thing called democracy. “ENDING MAIL-IN BALLOTS,” the traitor screeched.
Here is the problem with that from the republican standpoint. In recent weeks, since we creamed them in the midterms, many Republicans appear to be warming up to mail-in voting. Several in the GOP are said to be mulling over how to get their base to trust the process of voting by mail.
The reason why they want to do that is obvious. We cleaned their clocks in the mail-in ballots, and they didn’t like that. But they’ve been having trouble in that regard. Because Maga does not trust the mail in the process.
Maga — who was essentially created by the GOP — likes to vote in person. So the Frankenstein creators are getting lots of resistance from their little monsters. Only now, Trump has waded into the discussion. And he is reinforcing the distrust the monsters feel by calling for an end to the process.
That is not what Republicans want. Republican politicians want MORE mail-in voting from their side. And so again, they’re at odds with Trump. It’s become a boxing ring as, predictably, Trump is on one side, the GOP is on the other, and there are no referees to call time out.
And the Maga base is far more likely to trust Trump over the republican “swamp,” as they lovingly call it. So this is yet another thing that is backfiring on republicans’ courtesy of their leader, Trump. It’s just not shaping up to be a republican year, that’s for sure.
