Trump's rage at Georgia's GOP governor bodes badly for Trumpism's future

Opinion by Greg Sargent

The electoral college will convene in state capitols across the country on Monday to cast votes for Joe Biden. Once Congress counts those votes, Biden will formally become the next president.

But it’s becoming overwhelmingly clear that President Trump will do all he can to prevent millions of his supporters — and as many elected Republicans as possible — from acknowledging this outcome’s fundamental legitimacy.

The idea that the election was stolen from Trump will be maintained as a kind of foundation myth of the post-Trump era, one that Republicans will have to tiptoe around for years.

Which raises a question: Can elected Republicans who hope to keep alive the flame of Trumpism in some more respectable form do so without pledging fealty to this mythology?

1. Trump's CORRUPTION will hamper the Senate especially....

If Jon Ossoff and the Rev. Raphael Warnock are successful.

The House Republicans are on record supporting Trump's anti-democratic coup. The more they oppose Joe Biden as the next POTUS, the more they disgrace their positions and oaths of office. Their swearing to uphold and defend the US Constitution against enemies Foreign and Domestic will be but a farce.
