There seems to be a complete disconnect between what the President Elect says and what anyone hears. Evidence of that shines in the Pennsylvina response on resistance to do a recount.
In a filing on Saturday, a lawyer for Jill Stein, the Green Party presidential candidate, who began the recount bids in Pennsylvania — as well as in Michigan and Wisconsin — said “petitioners are regular citizens of ordinary means” and could not afford a $1 million bond payment that was ordered by Pennsylvania courts.
A lawyer for Ms. Stein’s recount campaign indicated on Saturday night that they were not giving up in Pennsylvania and planned to request that the federal courts on Monday intervene to order a statewide recount.
Lawyers for Pennsylvania Republicans and Mr. Trump had asked a judge on Thursday to dismiss Ms. Stein’s request, saying she had not identified any fraud or illegal activity during the Nov. 8 election.
It seems that everyday I hear Mr. Trump state that there is massive fraud in our election process and that millions of illegal votes are cast. And yet here are the State and especially the Trump lawyers saying there is no evidence of illegal activity?? Doesn’t what the future president say account for anything? Is this the way the country will run after January 20?
Don’t worry about what President Trump says, it is his handlers who are running things.
That seems to be the theme of the upcoming presidential term. Kind of like what happened during the Reagan years, especially the last four when he was plagued with Alzheimer’s. Is President Trump going to be the acting King of the U.S.? That seems to be what he really wants anyway. Since he admits that he doesn’t like to read just give him the high level details and let someone else take care of the nitty gritty.
Given the choices he has made to fill out his cabinet posts I can already see that this will be a presidency unlike any others in my lifetime and probably the entire life of the country.
Getting back to the original topic to close out this post. Every State should be doing a recount to purge all those millions of votes fraudulently cast as Mr. Trump proclaims. I’m sure he doesn’t want to be president if it was won by voter fraud. Maybe we should also be looking to see if we can actually find evidence of Russian manipulation of our systems. Wouldn’t it be interesting if that was found when the recount is done?
My British friends frequently say “God Save The Queen”, I know Mr Trump really wants to be a king but I think I will end many of my posts in this area with this phrase instead…
God Save The Country
