The President of the United States Donald J.

Definition of conspiracy

1the act of conspiring together: They were accused of conspiracy to commit murder.

2aan agreement among conspirators uncovered: a conspiracy against the government

ba group of conspirators: conspiracy made up of disgruntled aristocrats

Use the word in an example.

The President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, and certain delusional Senators and Representatives are engaged in a conspiracy to circumvent the results of a legitimate election for their own political gain.

Bonus word, Insanity.

An act of insanity is characterized by repeating the same action, i.e. repeated filing of lawsuits that are consistently rejected or dismissed with prejudice, with the expectation of a different result.

Thus the United States of America finds itself in the first few days of 2021. Pummeled by a pandemic, plagued by a mismanagement of the logistics of vaccine distribution, and led by a delusional, soon-to-be ex-president followed by those who embrace conspiracy theory over fact.

No one could have imagined this scenario. Nero fiddled while Rome burned. Trump sprayed jet fuel on our Republic and handed out torches to those whose blind allegiance contradicts all logic or ethics.

And yet, the beacon of hope remains for a better future once we shed this affliction.
