A Petulant Child Needing a Timeout

This is all you need to know about the current behavior of the President of the United States.

“What is the downside for humoring him for this little bit of time? No one seriously thinks the results will change,” said one senior Republican official. “He went golfing this weekend. It’s not like he’s plotting how to prevent Joe Biden from taking power on Jan. 20. He’s tweeting about filing some lawsuits, those lawsuits will fail, then he’ll tweet some more about how the election was stolen, and then he’ll leave.”


And just so those who will immediately jump on this source as unreliable will read on instead of lashing out, Tucker Carlson, of Fox News, one of the most supportive of the President, said this,

Tucker Carlson Says There’s Not Enough Fraud to Change Election Results: ‘We Should Be Honest’

“At this stage, the fraud that we can confirm does not seem to be enough to alter the election result. We should be honest and tell you that. Of course, that could change,” he said, on his Fox News show Tucker Carlson Tonight.

Many things can change but it’s a certainty this election results will not. And there’s this headline from USA Today

We asked nine legal experts about Trump’s latest lawsuit challenging election results in Pennsylvania. Their verdict: Dead on arrival.


So, to satisfy the bruised ego of a man-child who has held the most powerful position in the world, to ameliorate his disappointment, to let him have his tantrum and rant so we don’t hurt his feelings, the American people are supposed to just shrug their shoulders and say,

Hey, what’s the harm? Let him stew in his own anger and shout lies to the world about our democratic election process. Let him hold press conference at every landscaping business in the country and spew fictitious nonsense.

What’s the harm? If you ask that question in anything but a mocking tone you’ve already answered it.

He is a petulant child who needs to be sent to his room at Mar-a-Largo for a timeout. And for the sake of the gods, someone take away his access to the nuclear codes in case he decides Armageddon is better than admitting he lost.


P.S. It is Deja Vu all over again. Here are the eerily familiar, and ulitmately false claims from the 2016 election that he won.

This from Fact.org.

  • Trump claimed “people that have died 10 years ago are still voting,” citing a report that found 1.8 million deceased people remain on voter registration rolls. But the report did not find evidence of wrongdoing, and numerous studies have found such voter fraud is virtually nonexistent.
  • Trump claimed there is a massive problem with “illegal immigrants [who] are voting,” citing research by Old Dominion professors who say noncitizen voters may have benefited Democrats in 2008. But a Harvard professor who manages the data used in the Old Dominion study said the data was misused and the study’s conclusions are wrong.
  • Finally, Trump broadly claimed that “voter fraud is very, very common,” and he has called for poll watchers to look for people impersonating voters or voting numerous times. However, numerous academic studies and government inquiries have found in-person voter fraud to be rare.

For weeks, Trump has been warning about rigged elections. He urged his supporters in Ambridge, Pennsylvania, on Oct. 10 to monitor polls and “watch other communities, because we don’t want this election stolen from us.”

In a speech in Wisconsin on Oct. 17, Trump provided some detail and purported evidence to back up his claims about the prevalence of voter fraud, particularly by noncitizens and people casting ballots on behalf of deceased voters. But we found that his evidence is lacking.
