Later Trump December 3, 2020

In the last few weeks of the Trump administration I was struck by the following comment on Slate.com.

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump 10:31 AM

The “Republican” Governor of Georgia, @BrianKempGA , and the Secretary of State, MUST immediately allow a signature verification match on the Presidential Election. If that happens, we quickly and easily win the State and importantly, pave the way for a big David and Kelly WIN!

As the person who quoted that said:

Meanwhile, in other news, over 700,000 Americans filed for unemployment and 2,800 Americans died of COVID-19 yesterday.  But poor Mr. Trump can’t be expected to deal with that while people are being mean to him.

Is it not genuinely bizarre how there is next to no evidence that the issues the comment writer notes seem to concern the political leadership in the White House? It’s not as if nothing could be done – indeed those last few weeks will be crucial in the run-up to Christmas to dampening down the pandemic, as best as is possible. And yet…

“It’s all a shameless con job. He sees his claims of fraud as driving up donations — there’s nothing behind it beyond greed. Trump is using the moment to raise money. The number is actually shockingly large, over $150 million, a majority of it from small-dollar donations. This money is not going to his Election Defense Fund; it’s to keep him relevant in the GOP and launch his media brand. It’s all about money and power, and you need one to get the other….
There is that part of him that cannot accept losing. In his mind, the only way Biden could have won is through fraud. He has convinced himself of a narrative and is being fed back what he wants to hear from sycophants. The only one of these scumbags who truly believes this crap is Sidney Powell, but she is legitimately insane….
The money he’s raising is going toward the Save America PAC, which will be the base from which he establishes an entire parallel system of government.
He’s also going to have his own 24/7 media platform with Trump TV, which will be an unholy alliance between Newsmax, OANN, and whoever he can drag from the swamp looking for relevance. He’ll continue to suck from the veins of his MAGA faithful while chipping away at the Biden presidency, casting doubt on the legitimacy of the election. All of this is in service of a Trump 2024 run for president and his return to power. If this happens, all bets are off. He will try to change the Constitution and give himself a third term.”

By Wednesday afternoon, the U.S. had set a new record for the number of patients hospitalized with COVID-19, when that number rose above 100,000 people for the first time, and by the end of the day America added a new single-day fatality record. The number of people who died of COVID-19 in the U.S. rose above the previous record, 2,760, by Wednesday evening, and by midnight, according to the New York Times database, the U.S. had documented 2,885 new coronavirus deaths and 199,988 new cases, out of a pandemic total of at least 13,999,300 cases and 273,500 deaths….
that works out to one person dying in the U.S. every 30 seconds ”

Trump’s Presidency is ended like a slow, prolonged low level fart, with a bit of follow through.
