Donald Trump is in the electoral fight of his life — or was, anyway, if you overthink the odd statement his campaign manager made recently.
As the path to a possible legal victory is gone and an inevitable defeat starts to loom, Trump is doing everything he can to stop his campaign’s death spiral. He has done everything from sending professional shirt tucker Rudy Giuliani to head up the massive legal attempts to get votes thrown out to having his kids attempt to sow election misinformation on Twitter — which the social media platform continues to label as such.

It is no surprise that people are skeptical, we know Trump doesn’t deal with loss well and it is way past time for him to concede.
