‘Thugs’: Trump resorts to namecalling in first televised interview since losing election

President Donald Trump isn’t even listening to himself these days. He tweeted on Saturday how Fox News daytime is “virtually unwatchable, especially during the weekends.” Then, in the spirit of true hypocrisy, he gave Fox News his first televised interview since he lost the election against President-elect Joe Biden 26 days ago on November 3.

In a phone interview on Sunday with host Maria Bartiromo, the soon-to-be-former president used the opportunity to tote his usual baseless allegations of voter fraud. He went from suggesting that the FBI and Department of Justice (DOJ) are involved in a conspiracy against him to alleging that dead people applied for mail-in ballots and poll watchers were thrown out of counting rooms by “thugs” in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, Arizona, Wisconsin, and Nevada.

“This election was rigged,” Trump said. “This election was a total fraud, and it continues to be as they hide. And the problem we have, we go to judges, and people don’t want to get involved.”

And by not wanting to get involved, he means the courts keep throwing out his frivolous lawsuits, as was the case when Reps. Mike Kelly and Sean Parnell alleged on the president’s behalf that mail-in ballots were unconstitutional.

“We’re not allowed to put in our proof,” Trump told Bartiromo. “They say you don’t have standing. (…) I would like to file one nice big beautiful lawsuit, talking about this and many other things, with tremendous proof. We have affidavits, we have hundreds and hundreds of affidavits.”

One of the more troubling moments of Trump’s interview—I mean besides seeing the President of the United States reduced to a breathy rant of unfounded allegations—was hearing him refuse to confine his claims to a timeline and instead saying he would give his efforts to change his fate “125 percent of my energy” while the coronavirus pandemic rages.

“I led the charge. We won state houses. We won Congress. We won the Senate, and I lost. They say ‘it’s statistically impossible for that to happen,’” Trump said. And yet it did.

That and a complete incompetent, narcissistic, sociopathic loser and failure as a president, businessman, husband, and a human being. Trump is total Cluster$#@& and néeds to be institutionalized for the safety of the country and himself.

He is incapable of being concerned about that because he lost a legit election. All he’s ever cared about was good looking numbers.

All those whining sound bites is what you hear when the swamp finally gets drained. That squeaking sound when something fat and bulging is blocking that swamp hole. Irritating but pleasing at the same time.

He has NO PROOF! When a plaintiff or a defendant is losing before a judge, he/she always say the judge hasn’t looked at or considered his/her evidence. (Yes, I watch court TV shows.) The judge knows what proof and real evidence are. Trump and his so-called lawyers don’t.

Donald, when the courts say you need to provide proof of fraud, they do not mean “whatever lunacy Rudy is shouting on the front lawn of the White House during a dementia episode.”

If he, and his grifter thieving family, isn’t prosecuted it will be a crime against our country.
