The Democrats are cooking up a new conspiracy theory for 2020, and it’s even more diabolical than their last.
Back in 2016, the left side of the aisle was busy trying to convince America that, should Donald Trump win the presidency, it would only be because of help he received from Vladimir Putin. (They also seemed to think that Putin was blackmailing Trump, making this whole series of narratives appear slightly out of harmony with one another, but that’s liberal logic for you).
It took Robert Mueller $25 million and 22 months to nip that in the bud.
So, in 2020, the Democrats are now saying that Trump will refuse to leave office should he lose the election. This is just another preemptive use of 4th grade psychology, and those with any inkling of political playmaking understand this.
President Trump, who loves to goad the Democrats into hissy fits of incomparable volume, has played into this a bit, riling up the liberal left with his comments about the coming contest.
The Senate apparently didn’t think this was all that funny.
In a remarkable move, the Senate on Thursday unanimously passed a resolution reaffirming its commitment to a peaceful transition of power in the wake of President Donald Trump’s refusal to do so if he loses the election.
The measure, authored by Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, warns, in part, “Whereas any disruption occasioned by the transfer of the executive power could produce results detrimental to the safety and well-being of the United States and its people …” and ends saying that the Senate “intends that there should be no disruptions by the President or any person in power to overturn the will of the people of the United States.”
Trump’s concerns are that mail-in balloting could determine the election, and that there is the possibility of widespread voter fraud in that system.
