Few things are harder to watch than a person oblivious to the fact that their word is crumbling around them, and it’s even worse when it’s largely their fault. Outgoing president Donald Trump might be the most visible example of this, and his so-called #TrumpMeltdown on Twitter definitely helps that case.
Earlier today (Dec. 12), President Trump took to his favored vehicle of Twitter to rattle off a series of unchecked claims and other utterances much as he’s done in the wake of Election Day last month. For weeks now, the former business mogul has made false claims of voter and election fraud and has led a continually-failing attempt to overturn the will of the people who voted him out.
In a tweet, conservative columnist Todd Starnes wrote, “If the Wall Street Journal story is true and Attorney General Barr knew in the spring about the Biden investigation and kept it quiet — he should be fired by the end of business today.”
Trump quoted the tweet and writing in his retweet caption, “A big disappointment,” but that was only the beginning.
“I WON THE ELECTION IN A LANDSLIDE, but remember, I only think in terms of legal votes, not all of the fake voters and fraud that miraculously floated in from everywhere! What a disgrace,” Trump said, echoing a familiar stance he’s trumpeted since losing.
He continued with, “Who is a worse governor, @BrianKempGA of Georgia or @dougducey of Arizona??? These are two RINO Republicans who fought against me and the Republican Party harder than any Democrat. They allowed states that I won easily to be stolen. Never forget, vote them out of office!”
Adding to this, the U.S. Supreme Court threw out the Texas lawsuit that sought to overturn the results in four states Trump claims he won despite members of Trump’s own team saying the election was fair and square. Twitter has also limited the functionality of Trump’s tweets, which is loyal followers are seizing on and are attacking Twitter, on Twitter. The irony.
Trump’s latest Twitter tantrum has the term “#TrumpMeltdown” going strong today on Twitter, and believe us when we tell you, it’ll be more of the same until he’s officially given the boot from the White House.
