The closer we get to the 2020 election itself, the wilder the vitriol that we’ll be forced to endure from our congressional cretins and their surrogates in the political industry.
The left is scratching and clawing for any advantage that they can get, any foothold or tenuous fingertip grip they can muster, in their quest to somehow beat incumbent Republican Donald Trump at the polls come November. This will be easier said than done, of course, given that sitting Presidents are notoriously difficult to unseat, and the fact that they chose Joe Biden to head up the effort.
So, as they did with RussiaGate back in 2016, the Democrats are fomenting a fringe conspiracy theory that Donald Trump is angling to become some sort of dictator, and that he’ll refuse to leave office should he not win in November.
This week, another congressional Democrat jumped aboard this bombastic bandwagon.
House Democrat Carolyn Maloney dropped her version of the tall tale while speaking to CNN host Erin Burnett.
Host Erin Burnett asked Maloney about the possibility that delays in election results “could end up with street violence, and you don’t get a declared winner on election night and you have all kinds of ballots rejected due to error, never mind fraud. Do you think any of this or all of this is likely to happen?”
Maloney responded, “Well, you have to be prepared for everything. So, you have to be prepared, and you can start by passing my bill that passed the House and the Senate that would fully fund the Post Office, so that they can perform their duty and it would also stop the harmful steps that Postmaster General DeJoy took to literally slow down the mail. So, you can — and a number of states have taken steps to reform or make their processes more clear. The best way is to vote as soon as you possibly can. If it’s going to be a mail-in ballot…vote early to make sure the Post Office has time to stamp it and process it and get it to the board of elections to be counted.”
President Trump has already stated that he’d leave office if he loses, quipping that he’ll “go do something else”.
