Trump Is Flipping Democracy The Bird

This year Joe Biden was elected President of the United States of America earning 306 electoral votes (79,699,918 individual votes) to Donald Trump's 232 electoral votes (73,668,456 individual votes)*.  We did it!  Americans banded together and ousted an ego-maniac from The White House...,

Publicly traded MEME
...or so we thought. 

Since the day of the election, Donald Trump and his army of lawyers have been trying to change the outcome of the vote.

Lets put aside the fact that his claims of voter fraud have been laughed out of court after court.  Put aside the fact that U.S. District Judge Steven Grimberg, a judge appointed by President Trump, found the suit brought before him to, "...have no basis in fact and law,” after a 2.5 hour hearing. 

Forget all that.  The takeaway is that a, still sitting, POTUS is actively trying to steal an election from the American people.  He's not even being quiet about it.  Donald Trump wants four more years as president, so Donald Trump is going to try to take four more years as president.  In his mind it's just that simple. 

To be fair, he does need to stay in office.  Being president has been great for his bottom line.  Even the conservative news outlet FOX NEWS reports, "President Trump's luxury properties have charged the U.S. government more than $1.1 million since he took office – billing taxpayers for room rentals at his Bedminster, N.J., golf club this spring while it was closed due to coronavirus."

If the loss of such a cash cow wasn’t a sufficient motive for him to steal the election, there's every reason to believe that once he becomes a private citizen he'll be tried for obstruction of justice regarding The Mueller Report.  That's right, the moment Donald Trump is no longer POTUS, he's vulnerable to doing prison time.  I don't think he can get Big Macs and, "the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake that you've ever seen," in prison. 

One would be more than a little tempted to laugh his maneuverings off as the rantings of a spoiled child.  However, as of (11/20/2020-17:39:52pst), there have been 1,962 American deaths from Covid-19 over just the last 24 hours.  Instead of; mandating the use of life-saving face masks, putting his name behind a badly needed stimulus package, and working with the incoming administration; he's putting his energy toward holding on to power and flipping democracy the bird 🖕.

*=Individual vote totals still increasing slightly at, but electoral vote totals have been decided..

POTUS= President of The United States.
