Just because Donald Trump is fantasizing out loud about some kind of imaginary military coup, it doesn’t mean he’s within a million miles of being able to pull it off. Instead, he’s giving away just how hobbled he is.
Trump is now ranting on Twitter about how he supposedly got conservative Justice Brian Hagedorn elected to the Wisconsin Supreme Court, and how Hagedorn is now backstabbing him by refusing to somehow magically hand Wisconsin’s electoral votes to him.
Trump is boxed in, he’s reduced to whining about the conservatives and Republicans who are unwilling to try to bail him out. Frustration and resentment are all that he has left, and those don’t translate to political muscle.
– Tweet of the day, from President-elect Joe Biden:
I know you're probably tired of hearing about politics after this year. But with just 15 days left until the Georgia Senate runoffs, we can't take our foot off the gas.
