The whole day through (the whole day through)
Just an old sweet song
Keeps Georgia on my mind
To the extent that the Democrats enjoy a “majority” in the Senate (one can count Manchin and Sinema for now), it is in large part because Trump discouraged Georgia voters by continually talking about how the entire process was rigged against him, especially in Georgia. The turnout for the Senate election was lower than the presidential election (of course) but each senate candidate outperformed Trump (by percentage) in almost every district. Of course, they did. Trump had already told his voters that Georgia wouldn’t let them win.
Well, now Trump has decided to go national with his message, he wants the country and his MAGA cult to know that until they get to the bottom of the fraud of 2020, the MAGAs won’t be voting in 2022 or ’24.
Trump spammed the internet last night with an old-school tweetstorm- panic attack, all relayed by his obedient and enthusiastic spokesperson Liz Harrington. Here is Trump, trying to nationalize Georgia:
“If we don’t solve the Presidential Election Fraud of 2020 (which we have thoroughly and conclusively documented), Republicans will not be voting in ‘22 or ‘24. It is the single most important thing for Republicans to do.”
Well, then, we couldn’t possibly agree more. What has been well established, quite conclusively, is that Trump got his ass kicked in the election by 7 million votes, and despite the fact that he’d been given multiple attempts (by multiple, we mean over 60) opportunities to prove that fraud and it just never quite comes around. Trump just declares that it’s been proven.
What is actually happening is a panic attack. Trump realizes that people are getting closer and closer to the truth and he wants GOP politicians rallied around protecting him from the truth. He is saying that unless they back him up over 2020 and his actions, he’ll tell his army to not vote in 2022 and 2024, thereby dooming all of them.
Or at least that is our read on the most important message in a nightlong tweetstorm.
🤔 Trump just threatened to have Republican voters stay home in 2022 and 2024 unless the party is able to "solve" (by which he seems to mean overturn) the result of the last presidential election, which he lost. pic.twitter.com/sHvXHrKZtH
