Republicans have been caught redhanded trying to undermine democracy by passing an anti-voting law in Georgia. Governor Brian Kemp signed SB 202 into law last month in an attempt to claw back GOP control over a state that went blue in the last presidential election. In order to accomplish that, the bill is designed to reduce voter turnout particularly amongst minority communities that tend to vote Democratic.
SB 202 makes it illegal to distribute food and water to people waiting in line to vote, makes IDs mandatory for absentee ballots, restricts the locations of ballot drop boxes, and gives Republicans more control over election boards. It inarguably exists solely to ensure that fewer people vote in future elections.
Several corporations, presumably seeing an opportunity to win easy PR points rather than any legitimate concerns about democracy, have come out against SB 202. Major League Baseball went so far as to move the location of their All-Star Game from Georgia to Colorado, prompting conservatives to engage in a collective meltdown. There is nothing Republicans enjoy more than claiming victimhood after getting called out on their crooked behavior.
Disgraced former President Donald Trump tried to stoke the flames of this culture war issue during a conversation with Fox News. Since he’s been banned from both Facebook and Twitter for inciting the Capitol insurrection, he’s been forced to rely on the conservative news outlet and emails to communicate with the MAGA movement. After peddling his usual misinformation and the discredited conspiracy theory that he actually won Georgia in 2020, he discussed the MLB controversy with exactly the kind of confused, discursive, inane style we’ve come to expected from his decrepit brain.
“A woke group of people and that’s baseball and people are tired of it they decided to hurt the people of Georgia by moving it out and it’s just ridiculous. To a state frankly that has tougher laws than the law that Georgia just signed,” rambled the former commander-in-chief, repeating the new conservative lie that Colorado has more restrictive voting laws than Georgia. It does not.
The host and Trump went back and forth, spewing out the same rubbish that all of the other Fox programs are running about “woke” corporations before circling back to the MLB. He was asked if conservatives should boycott baseball and he let loose with a meandering, bizarre response.
“Look, I’m just not very interested in baseball for the last number of years,” said Trump . “I think it’s not appropriate. You want to find a game? It’s on every channel yet you can’t find anything,” the rambling old man went on as the host chuckled awkwardly.
“It’s the weirdest thing. It used to be a nice, easy thing to follow,” Trump added. “And you know what I mean by that. It was on one network and it was nice and good and beautiful. Today, you don’t even know what the hell you’re watching. I would say boycott baseball, why not? I think what they did was a terrible thing. I think it’s a very unfair thing,” Trump said before reeling off more lies about SB 202.
Whether or not Republicans will heed the words of Trump’s diseased mind remains to be seen, but this call should serve as a reminder of how lucky we are to be rid of this man. He can’t string a coherent thought together, it’s insane we ever let him anywhere near the nuclear codes.
