‘Grow up’: Trump slammed by CNN analyst for whining about upcoming November election

Published

on

A CNN discussion on Donald Trump’s continuing obsession with mail-in voting led one contributor to claim that he is sending signals that he knows he’s going to lose and he is setting the stage for multiple attempts to set aside or contest the election results.

Then he told the president to “grow up.”

After “New Day” host Victor Blackwell shared clips of the president claiming the election results wouldn’t be reliable and we “might never know” who actually won the election, Blackwell set the stage for CNN analyst Errol Louis.

“So Errol, anything short of a clear win for the president — and right now there’s no poll that suggests that’s in the cards — how confident are you, or is that what you’re expecting we’ll see from the Trump campaign, piles of litigation?” the host asked.

“Well, I don’t know about litigation so much, they’ve already started by the way they have begun litigation trying to halt or impede or distort the implementation of mail-in ballots but we’ll see the president try to throw shade, no actual facts, on the election in part because he’s behind,” Louis replied. “He’s really laying the groundwork for a possible defeat substantively speaking with mail-in and early voting and the ways we expand people to have their voices heard, it does take about a month leading up to and following election day to get the proper count.”

“We’ll have early voting that starts weeks before November 3rd, we’ll have absentee ballots for servicemen overseas for example, takes a while to get here. that won’t begin to be counted until after November 3rd,” he explained. “Then you have to total it up, so the president needs to grow up. Those who care about having every vote counted should be prepared for what’s going to be about a 30-day process before we know for sure what all of the ballots are telling us about the outcome.”

Published

Taking up the executive orders signed by Donald Trump on Saturday, MSNBC "Morning Joe" co-host Joe Scarborough pointed out a big loophole in the president's proposal for a tax cut, saying he is hiding the fact that voters will be on the hook for deferred taxes after the election.

After first pointing out the president's contempt for Americans struggling to make ends meet during the coronavirus pandemic that has crippled the economy.

"It was a huge, gigantic nothingburger when you look through the policies at the end," Scarborough began. "In fact, some of the policies he put forth are going to hurt people, hurt small business owners the most. Again I go back to the payroll tax cuts -- economists, Republicans, Democrats, everybody is opposing this.

Trump isn’t a king — he may be worse

With each passing day, it seems, the Trump administration seems intent on replaying the lead-up to the English Revolution.

This article first appeared in Salon.

Like King James I of England (aka James VI of Scotland), Trump believes that he, to quote James' tract of 1598, "The True Law of Free Monarchies," "is above the law," accountable only to God. He asserted in a July, 2019 speech that Article II of the Constitution means "I have to the right to do whatever I want as president." Like James' son, Charles I, who ruled England for 11 years without a parliament, Trump is increasingly governing through executive orders rather than making laws with the House and Senate.
