Four More Years

 I read today that President Trump phoned the governor of Georgia, urging him to overturn the results in that state. When the governor, a Republican, refused Trump double downed on his prior condemnations of the governor.  

We have not seen such reprehensible behavior in the 244 years of our American history.  Compared to the various claims undermining what was a fair election--without any evidence to support the accusations--what Nixon did-(Nixon, no small slime ball in his own right)  committed something akin to jaywalking with his various Watergate transgressions.

How many offenses has Trump committed in the month since the election alone.  He did not concede an election he lost disrupting a smooth and safe transition.  He threatened those who were in charge of the election. He implicitly encouraged or at least did not discourage violence against those who honestly tried to count votes.  He ignored a raging medical crisis to monomaniacally attempt to reverse the people's will.  He went to the podium to praise the Dow Jones breaking 30,000 while there are people and small businesses sinking. He is, more actively than ever before, destroying the Republican party.  And he has stolen money from the very people who supported him by soliciting contributions that will line his pockets.

Great. Four more years.
