My Turn: Stop the steal

The out-going president has been touting voter fraud since he won the electoral college vote in 2016. All during his single, four-year term he has warned that he will not accept a loss because our voting system is a joke.

Since his historic loss to Joe Biden, our out-going president has filed dozens and dozens of lawsuits, almost all of them tossed out of courts around the country and dismissed by Republican state lawmakers and nonpartisan election officials, stating this was the most secure election in history. All recounts to date have garnered Biden extra votes, instead of flipping the votes back to our out-going president.

Of course, our out-going president knows, deep down, that he did indeed not win, but being the promotionalist he is, he’s cashing in on his faithful followers, many of whom have sent large amounts of money to him, thinking they were helping his legal efforts. Of course, as with every other income stream he sets up, such as the children’s cancer fund, he buys other things with that money. What was it that W. C. Fields said?

In any event, Wednesday, Jan. 6 is the last chance our sore loser in chief has to make a ruckus, while continuing to deny our in-coming president any advanced information he needs for the job. In essence, instead of handing him the baton at full speed, treating America as a team, the Orange Man is slowly walking up to the pass-off line and placing the baton on the ground.

Donald Trump, prove that you love America. Put country over personal needs. Act like an adult, be a mensch, and do what needs to be done so Biden and his team can get to work. Anything else is an attempt to steal the election, which you lost. By a lot.
