Donald Trump leaves office in 36 days—an immutable reality that was reified yesterday when President-elect Joe Biden was officially declared the winner of the Electoral College—and yet rather than accept the fact that he will soon be jobless, the president continues to insist that he won the election and is being robbed his rightful second term due to an elaborate (and fabricated) mass voter fraud conspiracy.
As Trump’s ridiculous narrative becomes harder and harder to maintain for anyone not already deep in the grips of paranoia, the soon-to-be-ex-president has decided to turn on members of his own party, targeting Republicans who have long been loyal to him as they fail to stoop to the criminal demands he has repeatedly made of them. Governor Brian Kemp of Georgia, a longtime acolyte of the MAGA movement has become one of Trump’s favorite targets due to his refusal to strip Biden of his victory in the Peach State.
The White House Twitter attacks on Kemp could not come at a better time for Democrats as the state is currently engaged in two Senate runoff campaigns which will ultimately decide which party controls the upper chamber. Trump’s cannibalization of his own party could well up handed Joe Biden a unified government—opening up the possibility that all manner of life-changing policies for the American people being implemented free of Republican obstructionism.
Today, President Trump shared a tweet from Lin Wood, the deranged quack attorney who has been trying in vain for weeks to get the 2020 election overturned in Trump’s favorite. Wood’s Twitter is an absolute cesspit of insane theories, misinformation, and frothing madness of a genus rarely matched even in the deepest backwoods of the right-wing digital stomping grounds. He has already suggested that Georgia Republicans refuse to vote for the party’s Senate candidates Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue unless they help deliver the state’s electoral votes to Trump. In short, he’s perfectly emblematic of the entire MAGA dead-ender crowd.
The tweet Trump shared from Wood praised the president as a “genuinely good man” who “does not really like to fire people.” Wood speculated that Trump “dislikes putting people in jail, especially ‘Republicans'” but that Governor Kemp and Georgia’s Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger will “soon be going to jail.”
It should go without saying that Kemp and Raffensberger are most certainly not going to prison for refusing to illegally steal the election on Trump’s behalf. The president almost certainly realizes this but decided he’d rather stroke his own ego by doubling down on his victimhood claims than support his party. Frankly, it’s difficult to feel even an ounce of sympathy for these men, Kemp in particular. He chose to embrace the Devil, he can’t complain now that he’s getting burnt.
