Demented Dictator Donny is personally calling republican state/county board members seeking to “rescind” their votes to certify the election result. The gloom-and-doom orange buffoon has also invited Republican state lawmakers from Michigan to the White House on Friday to mount an effort to overturn the results of the election he lost to President-elect Joe Biden.
“This is very dangerous for our democracy, as it is an attempt to thwart the will of the voters through political pressure from the President,” CNN election law expert Rick Hasen wrote in his website. “Even though it is extremely unlikely to work, it is profoundly antidemocratic and a violation of the rule of law. It’s inexcusable.”
The next step in Michigan is for the state’s Board of Canvassers to certify the election results, which is scheduled for next week. That board includes two Republicans and two Democrats, and the spouse of one of the Republican board members, Norm Shinkle, filed an affidavit supporting the Trump campaign’s Michigan lawsuit.Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, a Democrat, said Thursday her office would perform a statewide risk-limiting audit as well as local performance audits of individual jurisdictions. These audits were planned ahead of time.
Donny Trump is doing whatever he can to cause chaos, confusion and doubt in not only our election process but in our country’s democracy. Trump is trying to block or delay the process in key states as part of a long-shot effort to overturn his election defeat through the Electoral College. His goal is for GOP state legislatures, in battleground states Biden won, to use a delay in certification to appoint their own slate of electors and ignore the states’ popular votes for Biden.
Republicans are staying silent and letting their leader do what he wants. Democrats are in total denial claiming Trump will not get away with it. Trump continues to move forward with his efforts and everyone is just watching. Let’s see what happens.
Remember this, Trump’s fragile little ego is most important to him. If it means totally burning down democracy and destroying this country; he will do it and he has his moronic base to help him. Time after time, throughout Trump’s presidency, Democrats have said, “Oh, he’ll never get away with that”. Time after time, Trump got away with it. Does anyone think this is anything different?
Trump has summoned members of the Michigan GOP in a bid to continue his charade, with two legislative leaders confirmed traveling to meet with the president:
Michigan’s Senate Majority Leader, Mike Shirkey, and Speaker of the House, Lee Chatfield, are meeting with Trump to continue denying Joe Biden the electoral votes he’s won.
Contact them now to demand that the results of the election—and the will of Michigan voters—are upheld.
We must stay focused, stay vigilant, and stay confident. Our system is holding firm. Joe Biden is our duly elected president-elect, and he will take the office on January 20.
