I’d like to take this moment to remind you all — The 2020 presidential election is over. The votes have been counted. The states have been called one by one. And after the longest few days of our lives, every reputable media outlet from coast to coast called the election in favor of Joe Biden and announced him as President-Elect of the United States.
There are no hidden stashes of Trump-friendly votes tucked away under some dumpster in Georgia, no stack of MAGA ballots floating in a fish tank in Pennsylvania, no bag full of Republican choices out in the desert of Arizona. This thing is done. It’s over. The votes are counted. Donald Trump lost — fair and square, no less.
However, given that Donald is perhaps the sorest loser this nation has ever had the displeasure of living under, his actions would lead you to believe that he’s still campaigning away for an election that hasn’t even happened yet.
Trump has made it clear through his lawsuits, litigations, and tweets that he has no intention of conceding the election to his incoming replacement, Joe Biden. But to make matters all the worse, he still behaves as though he hasn’t lost to him yet.
While he hasn’t stooped so low as to hold actually rallies yet, Trump continues to speak and act as though there’s still something to win or lose.
Just the other day, he held his first public appearance since media outlets called the election in Biden’s favor, in the form of a presser regarding the coronavirus vaccine that’s making waves across the nation. Unsurprisingly, despite his minuscule involvement in the whole ordeal, the entire press briefing was centered around him taking credit for the life-saving vaccine — as if it could somehow affect the election results in his favor.
And this morning, as another vaccine from another company shows very promising results, Trump is essentially doing the same thing all over again on Twitter.
“Another Vaccine just announced. This time by Moderna, 95% effective. For those great “historians”, please remember that these great discoveries, which will end the China Plague, all took place on my watch!” Trump penned on social media, once again bragging that it happened “on his watch” as though it could somehow have any bearing on the results of the election that’s long past.

It seems as though Trump wants his name to go down in history as the cure-er of the deadly pandemic, as he calls on “historians” to memorialize this “feat” of his.
But I’ve got news for him — The only thing he’ll be going down in history as is the guy who got more than 220 thousand Americans killed and then refused to concede.
