Trump bid to overturn vote crashes into wall of deadlines

Source: Politico

President Donald Trump’s effort to overturn the election results is about to smash into reality: a gauntlet of battleground state deadlines that are poised to extinguish his increasingly desperate attempts to hold onto the presidency.

Michigan is due to certify its state results Monday. Arizona and Pennsylvania counties must also finalize their results the same day. On the heels of Georgia’s certification of Joe Biden’s victory on Friday, the series of administrative deadlines stands to all but formalize Biden’s win by officially affirming the results in enough contested states to put him over the 270-electoral-vote threshold.

As late as Friday, the president summoned Michigan lawmakers to the White House as part of his last-ditch lobbying effort to convince them to intervene to stop the state’s certification of the election results.

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany claimed the afternoon meeting was not “an advocacy meeting.”

8. If he had actually done what he should have done, what ANY other president

we have EVER had would have done, he would have won reelection handily.

But he's a failure. He cannot buckle down and perform under pressure. He cannot bring people together. He cannot forge a real team. He cannot provide that intrinsic motivation necessary for those around him, in his administration, to excel. He never has been able to do anything but whine, and blame others.

4. By refusing to concede, Trump loses over and over and over again.

And every day, he gets to hear the echo of his father's voice, "LOSER! LOSER! LOSER!"

6. It was "Newspeak" in Orwell's "Nineteen Eighty-Four", although McEnany uses the minor version.

Newspeak, propagandistic language that is characterized by euphemism, circumlocution, and the inversion of customary meanings. The term was coined by George Orwell in his novel Nineteen Eighty-four (1949). Newspeak, “designed to diminish the range of thought,” was the language preferred by Big Brother’s pervasive enforcers.
