There is a saying that if you give a man enough rope he will hang himself. With Trump, there is no need to bother; he snatches the rope from our hands.
Former president donald trump on Sunday admitted in a written statement that he wanted his former vice-president Mike Pence to “cancel the election” and spoke out against efforts to put in place laws to prevent something like this from happening. [emphasis added]
Trump, who as usual does not understand what Congress is doing, lambasted both parties for working to tighten the voter count law, seeing it – as always – as revolving around him:
“If the Vice-President (Mike Pence) had “absolutely no right” to alter the results of the presidential election in the Senate, despite the fraud and many other irregularities, how come Democrats and RINO Republicanslike Wacky Susan Collins, are desperately trying to pass legislation that won’t allow the vice president to change the election results?
And now comes the money quote:
“In fact, what they’re saying is that Mike Pence had the right to change the result, and now they want to take it straight away. Unfortunately, he didn’t exercise that power, he could have overturned the election!” [emphasis added]
Penny. Could. Have. Reversed. The. Election.
Trump said it out loud. Not “corrected”. Not “retarded”. Not “questioned”. The Mangled Mangohead actually expected the Vice President of the United States to void the election. Now, maybe Trump doesn’t understand what “overthrow” means. In this case, it is a question of reversing a accepted results.
This one must sting. This one goes:
Trump isn’t just holding a smoking gun. It even reloads and fires while sheriffs watch and take notes.
