Delusional, unhinged, psychotic, unstable, egotistical. To be pitied now as much as ridiculed.
I could not watch the whole 46 minutes of his diatribe but his body language was interesting.

Trump will NEVER concede .
He would lose his base if he did and the rest of the GOP doesn’t want him to concede either , for they need the same block of voters .
Barr, by admitting there was no voter fraud is giving trump a way to bow out without conceding .
Trump will be able to blame his loss on Barr and still retain a unified voting block . It’s a win win . Barr makes himself look better , by not much. and trump gets to walk away with his lies intact . I suspect this was a set up between barr and donny .

On the rational side, this is all about bringing out the Republican feeble minded vote, for the truly important upcoming Senate vote in Georgia.

From the article:

… a vast conspiracy to steal the election.

Hmm…

That “vast conspiracy” is so big that a majority of the voters are participants!

I feel that if you drive a “false hero” underground, he/she will, unfortunately, continue to get stronger within the cult. That leaves relentlessly exposing the lies, publicly prosecuting the crimes and continuously attempting to reeducate the misguided. Certainly no easy task, but a necessary one.

Warning him? Trump is banking on people get killed. It’s necessary for him to enact a coup. If it doesn’t happen, then no coup. This is a very dangerous moment for America.

What’s needed even more is to enact policies that will undercut his support - like M4A, coronavirus relief for the working class, a jobs program, $15/hour minimum wage for starters. Biden and Congress had better realize this fast, but I’m almost certain they won’t (or will choose not act to even if they do).

Any other American - as irrational and volatile as Trump – would have been
locked up long ago – and we were certainly warned by psychiatrists that his
psychological problems would turn into problems for the nation –

Reportedly [filmed last week], Trump’s remarks were posted online days after a pair of key battleground states, Wisconsin and Arizona, certified President-elect Joe Biden’s victories, further solidifying his decisive win in the November contest. In a [viral clip], Arizona’s Republican Gov. Doug Ducey is seen ignoring what appears to be a phone call from Trump as he certifies the state’s results.

Gabriel Sterling, a Georgia voting systems manager and a Republican, said Tuesday that Trump’s constant lies about the results are directly responsible for recent intimidation and death threats against election workers in the state, which has been [certified]

"Someone is going to get hurt, someone is going to get shot, someone is going to get killed, and it’s not right," said Sterling.

HOW IS IT THAT EVEN THE CASE OF GOV. WHITMER ISN’T ENOUGH TO HAVE TRUMP LOCKED UP?

AND, BTW, WHERE ARE REPORTS ON THAT CASE? WHAT’S BEEN HAPPENING?

THOSE INVOLVED SHOULD BE ON BILLBOARDS REMINDING US ALL OF THE ABILITY
OF TRUMP AND HIS FELLOW GOP FASCISTS TO INCITE RIOT – INCITE NEW HATREDS –
INCITE RIGHT WING CRAZIES TO COMMIT CRIMES.

This is America’s Hitler – playing also the music of the American-religious-Taliban –

And this thing is coming right at us – and doesn’t stop — because Trump hasn’t been stopped.

Biden’s corporate Cabinet looks nothing like the 99% –
Federal Reserve Bank – a PRIVATE BANK – which represents its own members and
their profits –
Tanden – pushing a “means test” for Social Security and I guess Medicare –
Could we call it the beginning of a “caste” system here – or is that connotation too closely
connected to racism more than economics?

Also – GM has pulled out of a deal which would have moved ELECTRIC CARS here.

So what we see is Biden immediately putting Elites ahead of citizens as he once more
moves to the side of Elites/corporations and abandons the 99% –

AND ABANDONS THE PLANET TO HOLD SUICIDAL CAPITALISM AND ITS EXPLOITATIONS
IN PLACE –

The battle for the gop party rages on like a flesh eating virus, as long as no one outside of the party gets hurt, it’s become grand entertainment. This is especially true knowing they could have wrestled control away from Trump, with a yes vote during the impeachment trial, since that didn’t happen, choke on it gop.

Yes, it would appear thatTrump is certainly hoping that people will be harmed during the next six weeks when he remains in power. As the wsws notes in an article today:

“However, the main purpose of the speech, which brands the Democratic Party and most state election officials as criminals, was to incite Trump’s most fervent followers to stage violent attacks against anyone targeted by the would-be führer in the White House. Denouncing those who ‘desire to hurt the president of the United States,’ Trump demanded that ‘something should happen.’ He added, ‘These entrenched interests oppose our movement, because we put America first’.”

It is not going to take much imagination on the part of Trump’s fanatical and gullible base to decipher what Trump means when he states that “something should happen” to people who believe that Trump lost the election and that he needs to leave on January 20, 2021. The wsws also brought out in the same article that:

“On Tuesday, the Washington Times, the ultra-right daily newspaper in the U.S. capital, published a full-page ad purchased by an Ohio-based fascist group, the We The People Convention, calling on Trump to declare martial law and order a mew election under the supervision of the US military.”

One would be hard pressed to find any mention of this by either the corporate media or the alleged opposition, the Democrats, as neither of them appear to be taking seriously what Trump and has fascist groups are doing in order to keep Trump in power. Being complacent during these troubled times may very well end up becoming a recipe for disaster. Biden and his merry band of fellow Democrats, including such alleged radicals as Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, seem absolutely terrified of condemning Trump and in urging that action be taken against Trump and his fascist supporters. Thinking that, to recall a title of a novel from the 1930s by Sinclair Lewis, It Can’t Happen Here is simply an exercise in self delusion. Biden and the rest of the Democrats seem to have blindfolds on their eyes and fingers in their ears while they say to themselves that everything is fine and that there is nothing to worry about. And this is probably why Trump feels that he can say these things as he knows that he will receive little opposition and fear no consequences from either the Democrats or the Republicans.

Donald will never concede because Donald never grew up. Donald also needs to be imprisoned for his rhetoric to incite riots and murder.
