Trump threatens to withhold future support for GOP: "Republicans will not be voting in '22 or '24"  | Salon.com

pffft, another empty threat by the magatard fuhrer. hopefully his legion of dimwitted sycophants heed his advice.

Donald Trump, who has insistently pushed the baseless notion that the 2020 election was marred by sweeping election fraud, appears to be dissuading his supporters from voting in the 2022 and 2024 elections if the GOP fails to "solve" the apparent fraud.

"If we don't solve the Presidential Election Fraud of 2020 (which we have thoroughly and conclusively documented), Republicans will not be voting in '22 or '24," Trump said in a Wednesday statement. "It is the single most important thing for Republicans to do."

Last year, Trump's allies echoed a similar message to the former president's voters, urging them to sit out of the Georgia runoffs until the party's Senate incumbents - former U.S. Sens. Kelly Loeffler, R-Ga., and David Perdue, R-Ga. - backed demands to hold a legislative session to probe Trump's defeat in the Peach State.

"They have not earned your vote," pro-Trump attorney L. Lin Wood told voters. "Don't you give it to them. Why would you go back and vote in another rigged election, for god's sake! Fix it! You gotta fix it!"

Ultimately, Loeffler and Purdue were narrowly ousted by their Democratic opponents, former pastor Raphael Warnock and former investigative journalist Jon Osofff.

As it stands, no evidence of widespread or systematic fraud in the 2020 presidential election has emerged, despite the host of Republican-backed efforts to unearth foul play.

Chief among these efforts was Arizona's election audit of Maricopa County, which was run by Cyber Ninjas, a company that had no apparent experience in conducting recounts. In October, after months of circus-like operational dysfunction, Cyber Ninjas produced results indicating that President Biden had in fact beaten Trump by a greater margin than was originally reported. Outside election experts strongly doubted whether all the ballots were even counted in the recount, The New York Times reported.

Other audit efforts have taken place in states like Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin.

This week, Michigan Trump supporters launched a ballot drive calling for a "full forensic audit" of the 2020 election, according to The Detroit Free Press. GOP congressional candidate Jon Rocha said that the state will need to procure 340,000 signatures in order to prompt a "veto-proof" investigation from the state's legislature. The ballot drive demand's fly in the face of strong evidence indicating that Biden, who saw 150,000 more votes than Trump in Michigan, won fairly. Back in March, the Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson announced that 250 separate audits throughout the state confirmed the "accuracy and integrity" of the state's election.

This week in Georgia, one of the last remaining Trump-backed lawsuits alleging fraud was dismissed by a state superior court, ruling that the case's plaintiffs did not have proper standing. The decision likely spells failure for any attempted Arizona-style audits in the Peach State, Forbes noted.

In Pennsylvania, Trump's election crusade appears running smoother. Last week, NPR reported, state Republicans had issued a "wide-ranging subpoena for the personal information of millions of voters." The information will reportedly encompass voter addresses, driver's license numbers, and partial Social Security numbers in order for the state GOP to verify voters' identities. Past court rulings and previous audits have indicated that there is no need for an official audit.

Wisconsin, meanwhile, is conducting three separate reviews of 2020 election results. They are respectively being led by conservative former state Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman, state Rep. Janel Brandtjen, and Wisconsin's nonpartisan Legislative Audit Bureau, according to NPR. Like every other state under review, Wisconsin has in the past conducted multiple routine audits of the 2020 election, and found no indication of outcome-altering fraud.

It is not stupid if you consider where Trump is coming from.   He cares only about himself.   His number one priority is to erase the fact that he lost the election — something that his ego cannot handle.

What is stupid is for his followers to believe whatever this pathological liar spews; for them to believe that he actually cares about them.   To believe, even, that he would not toss them all under the bus if it would be beneficial to him.

To not recognize his abysmal character at this stage in the game is inexcusable.    It worries me that so many gullible / stupid people are in the electorate.

Hard to imagine Trump winning the general.    Hard to imagine a divided R party accomplishing any major wins.   

However, screw-ups and massive spending will energize the fiscal conservatives (R, D and independents) to vote against D candidates.   So there is the most likely path IMO.

Well no was has ever accused Trumps sycophants of being highly intelligent. When you piece together the number of stupid ideas that fatheaded buffoon has had this hardly ranks as top of the stupid pile.

He suggested nuking a hurricane.

He suggested injecting disinfectant to cure Covid.

He stupidly stared directly at an eclipse.

He stupidly said "nobody knew that healthcare could be so complicated."

He tossed paper towels at Puerto Rican hurricane survivors.

He drew what looked like a boob on a NOAA hurricane map with a sharpie to try and cover his previous ignorant comments.

He said windmills cause cancer.

He said he met with the President of the Virgin Islands not realizing he was actually the President of that US territory.

He said "we're building a wall in Colorado".

He said NASA "should be focused on the much bigger things we are doing, including Mars (of which the Moon is a part)"

He said CA should "spend a lot of time on raking" to prevent their forest fires.

He said the American Revolutionary "army manned the air, it rammed the ramparts, it took over the airports" when it fought for independence.

It's no wonder why he said "We won with poorly educated. I love the poorly educated". Anyone with more than half a brain would have been far too ashamed to continue supporting such a complete moron so all he has left are gullible sycophants who will rally around his every stupid idea and proclaim them the best ideas in the history of mankind. If they don't they know he'll squeeze his butt cheeks and strangle them to death.

Trump is the kind of man that screwed his father, who was suffering from dementia, out of his fortune.  He screwed his siblings out of their share of their father's estate.  He screwed his sibling's children out of their inheritance.  He has screwed his employees out of their paychecks, and vendors out of their contractual payments.  Most of those vendors were small businesses that never recovered from the losses they incurred.  If you think about it, screwing people over has been his only successful venture.  He scammed his way out of registering for the draft, he scammed his way onto the Forbes Richest list, he scammed his way out of impeachment, and he has scammed his supporters out of their hard-earned money.  He scammed his way out of paying taxes, and he also scammed taxpayers into funding his (and his family's) off-the-chain number of personal activities.  He taught his children how to grift their way through life, as well.  He ran his charitable foundation as if it were the First National Bank of Trump.  In addition, the number of people he has thrown under the bus in an effort to escape blame for his shitty shenanigans, are simply too numerous to mention. 

Donald Trump has been getting away with bullshit for so long, he thinks he will get away with this latest threat, as well.  It's way past time for this man, and his family, to become completely irrelevant.

I wouldn't make any bets on what Trump's intentions are. It's been widely reported early in his political career that Trump will agree with whatever it is the last person he spoke to suggests. If that's true, and sometimes it seems to be, then I don't think we can discount anything until filing deadlines in 2023.

Therein lies the rub. The media just keeps listening and reporting on him pretty much negatively as they did in '15 and '16 and look what happened. He got voted out of office. He should be relatively irrelevant now but the press and a few members here seem to be hooked for some reason and bring him into the conversation ad nauseum. And we hae got bigger fish to fry

At this point, in my mind he is irrelevant. Others don't seem to be able to let go FFS and it's old, tired, and practically vomit inducing.

Emphatically. I am shocked at any of this is happening. It is the "progression" into personal madness of one man stuck in an alternate reality where reality continues to intrude.

Donald J. Trump is behaving like a mad going mad on the world stage. I can not say I wish him harm; but, this 'predator' must go away now for the good of the whole to remain intact.

I can understand Trump;  he is a malignant narcissist with an abysmal character leading to pathological lying.   There are worse people on the planet so the fact that Trump is so mentally screwed up is easy enough to accept.  

What I cannot understand are the Trump followers ... especially those sycophants (like a notable here) who "loves" Trump.

How can they not see that Trump is using them and that he does not give a shit about their well-being?

There was a television series,"The Following (2013-2015)" with a lead named Joe Carroll who got ordinary people to do horrible things to other people in his name:

Joe Carroll's Message to the World

Donald Trump is 'pacing' Joe Carroll for passion. Seriously, yes, I know it is not completely the same, but oh the 'sentiment.' In the series, Carroll was diabolical and his cult-like followers 'everywhere' in the country - dressing the 'part' to do his bidding.
