Post Election Aftermath: Denial and Hope

 

Pandemic Diary - Day 230

Dear Diary,

The best present I ever got for my birthday - on November 7th - was when Joe Biden was declared the next President of the United States.

The nation said YOU'RE FIRED!

To no one's surprise Trump is in deep abject denial and claims he's been cheated. He unleashed a pack of lawyers to challenge results in different states with no results.

That's because there was NO FRAUD

There's a few feeble cases (with no evidence) hanging on until the end of this week. Trump supporters and GOP lackeys in Congress have been afraid to say he lost the election, although most know he has.

In a pathetic effort to hang on to the dream of a Trump dynasty, they all claim to be waiting for the final count in Arizona later this week before admitting reality. 

To be sure, his core supporters will never admit to reality, but there's a chance some Republicans will move on and try to restore their party which Trump transformed into a populist cult.

In spite of all of this, America has hope now.

I enjoyed reading the international headlines congratulating Joe Biden and mocking Trump. More than one banner head ran "YOU'RE Fired!"

The next 72 days are going to be more chaotic than than ever as Trump continues to lash out like a wounded hyena, right up until the last moment when they have to drag him out of the Oval Office.

On January 20th, 2021, the majority of Americans will set about healing the country, and trying to unite the nation.
