When it comes to disgraced former President Donald Trump, there’s certainly no lack of head-scratching bizarreness. The man was bad enough during the four long, hard years he was able to wreak havoc on this country and its people from the comfort and power of the literal White House. However, since his eviction notice back in November, his manic episodes have gone progressively downhill.
Now, some of us may have been of belief (or at least hope) that Trump’s incessant lies and baseless claims regarding the security and legitimacy of the 2020 presidential election would begin to simmer down with time, once the former guy found some other crazy new obsession to fill his days with. However, we’re well over halfway through Joe Biden’s very legitimate first year as President of the United States and still, Donald’s Big Lie shows no sign of even slowing down.
In fact, you may even say that as the days have ticked past, his insanity has only gotten worse.
Trump proved that fact all on his own early this morning when he released yet another of his “official” statements, this time reacting to a Wisconsin report claiming that 205,000 voter registrations in the state were dropped from the books because the voters in questions had not voted in 4 years. In Donald’s Aderrall-fried brain, this report apparently means he very well could have won the state of Wisconsin.
“Deactivating voter registrations in Wisconsin is a routine practice, required by law every two years, as part of the state’s voter record maintenance, according to the Wisconsin Elections Commission. The effort identifies individuals who have not voted in the previous four years and deactivates their registrations unless they want to remain on voter roll,” the report from The Hill read earlier this week.

However, in true Trump fashion, the ex-president entirely ignored that very important detail and used the report to try to further back his claims of fraud. Issuing a statement through his new spokeswoman Liz Harrington, Trump asserted that Wisconsin’s voter registration purge may mean that he actually won the state’s 10 Electoral College votes.
“Wisconsin has just canceled 205,000 voter registrations because they say they could not find the voters. Why did they wait until AFTER the election?” the one-term, twice-impeached ex-president raged. “Would this mean that we would have won Wisconsin? Congratulations!”

As has become customary in response to these official statements of his, critics on Twitter quickly attempted to explain to the former guy that individuals choosing not to cast their vote in an election does not, in fact, serve as proof of any sort of election fraud or wrongdoing. And, of course, some just buried him in the heaps of mockery and scorn that he so rightfully deserves:
Dying to know if stupid hurts. Let us know, please?

They are so badly exploiting the ignorance and emotionalism of their voter base. And most of those people stay fully insulated in echo chambers and adopt his traits of doubling down and being defiant. Cognitive dissonance at a mega level. We tend to get angry, but it’s also sad.

Liz and Donald – this is a stupid comment, even for the two of you

You would think there would have to come a time in which his insanity just became too insane and all these blind followers of his would finally start screaming, “Hold up?!?!”
Yet, here we are…
