Donald Trump has never had a week like the week he just had. On the heels of the Supreme Court’s knock-back and the Electoral College’s knockout, some of his most reliable supporters—Mitch McConnell, Vladimir Putin, Newsmax—acknowledged and affirmed the actual fact of the matter. Trump is a loser.
As the article goes on the explain, the short answer is yes, he’s cracking up.
After electors from all 50 states and D.C. met earlier this week, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell congratulated President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris for their victory. The MAGAverse went bananas: The deep-state coward McConnell had caved.
A Newsweek headline read, “QAnon Supporters Vow to Leave GOP After Mitch McConnell Accepts Election Result.” Kyle Becker, a conservative media figure formerly with Fox News, tweeted that McConnell had purposefully blocked election security bills (that much is true) to help rig the elections in Biden’s favor. President Trump himself tweeted to complain about “RINOS” who allowed “the Democrats to so blatantly cheat,” to which Claremont Institute Lincoln Fellow and Pizzagate conspiracy theorist Jack Posobiec responded, “Take over the party directly and remove all RINOs.” Julie Kelly, who has a history of blaming sexual abuse on the victim, tweeted, “these people do not deserve to keep power,” referring to congressional Republicans. She even appeared to endorse returning the Senate to Democratic control: “Demote them [congressional Republicans] then primary from place of weakness in 2022.” Fox News host Mark Levin also denounced McConnell and called for “fresh thinking and new blood.”
