President Donald Trump on Tuesday attacked his Republican congressional allies for refusing to go along with his scheme to steal re-election, and his insults were greeted with ridicule and scorn.
The president lashed out at GOP lawmakers -- and hurled a racial slur at Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) -- with false claims about election fraud, saying he'd helped them get elected despite alleged irregularities that cost him re-election, and issued new demands for legislation from his Mar-A-Lago golf resort in Florida.
"Can you imagine if the Republicans stole a Presidential Election from the Democrats - All hell would break out. Republican leadership only wants the path of least resistance. Our leaders (not me, of course!) are pathetic. They only know how to lose!" Trump complained on Twitter.
The outgoing president also attacked "weak and tired" GOP leadership after the House of Representatives voted to override his veto of the National Defense Authorization Act.

Don't pretend you give a fucking shit about Americans literally days before you're removed from office when months and months passed by and you didn't even order PPE for frontline healthcare workers, tell people to wear masks, or enforce a national lockdown.

Trump's niece, Mary Trump, who is a clinical psychologist, said that this is the first time that Donald Trump has been put into a position where he cannot, lie, cheat, steal, threaten or buy his way out. He is clinically depressed and dangerous.

This is simply false. There were nearly 3 million FEWER votes cast in PA than there were eligible voters.

Wait, ya mean if, like a GOP candidate worked hand in glove with a foreign enemy to help tip an election in his favor? Or if one sought to blackmail an overseas ally into smearing his political opponent? That kind of thing?

It's no surprise though that Trump is now trashing Republicans - he has no loyalty to anyone! It's all about him - anyone who doesn't agree with or support him is scorned publicly.

After eight solid weeks of kicking, screaming, and throwing an epic tantrum, it looks like Donald Trump's next step is to hold his breath until Georgia turns blue.
