An outburst by the young Trump on election night suggests he has no idea…how counting works.

Yes this a Trump hit piece ... 

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T

One thing that Trumpologists have known for years but that the rest of the world learned starting in 2016 is that intelligence is not a dominant gene in the Trump family. Obviously, patriarch   Donald Trump   is not smart at all, a small smattering of evidence being his suggestion that Americans   inject household cleaner into their veins ; his bright idea to stop hurricanes by   dropping   nuclear bombs on them; his decision to look   directly at a solar eclipse   multiple times without protective eyewear; and his claim that one can get cancer   from the sound of windmills . But the children, too, are clearly dumber than a bag of bricks.   Ivanka Trump   reportedly believed—and could not be convinced otherwise—that “libertarian” and “liberal”   were the same thing .   Donald Trump Jr.   was declared   too stupid to collude   by   Robert Mueller.   And according to a new account of election night 2020,   Eric Trump   apparently had no idea how vote counting works, in that he doesn’t understand that election officials don’t just stop counting votes when the candidate he wants to win is ahead.

Yes, according to an excerpt from a new book by   Washington Post   reporters   Carol Leonnig   and   Philip Rucker , Trump’s second eldest son became apoplectic as the 45th president’s lead started shrinking in Pennsylvania and other states—on account of election officials’ insistence that all the votes be counted—and, like his father, determined there was no explanation other than fraud.

Per the   Post :

“Why are they still counting votes?” Trump asked. “The election’s closed. Are they counting ballots that came in afterward? What the hell is going on?” Trump, through a spokesman, denied saying this. The president told  [Kellyanne] Conway  that he thought something nefarious was at play. “They’re stealing this from us,” Trump said. “We have this thing won. I won in a landslide and they’re taking it back.” Of course, nobody was taking anything. Election officials were simply doing their duty, counting ballots. But Trump didn’t see it that way. He seemed to truly believe he had been winning.

Eric Trump, who the night before had predicted to friends that his father would win with 322 electoral college votes, flipped out in the Map Room. “The election is being stolen,” the president’s 36-year-old son said. “Where are these votes coming from? How is this legit?”

The votes, of course, were coming from…the voters. Nevertheless, Eric persisted:

He yelled at the campaign’s data analysts, as if it were their fault that his father’s early leads over  [Joe] Biden  were shrinking. ”We pay you to do this,” he said. “How can this be happening?” Eric Trump, through a spokesperson, insisted that he did not berate campaign staff, as described by witnesses. Donald Trump Jr. said, “There’s no way we lose to this guy,” referring to Biden.

Luckily for the Trumps—and unluckily for the nation, democracy, etc.—someone on hand had a plan. Was it a good plan? No. Was it devised by someone who was possibly drunk? Yes.

After a while,  Rudy Giuliani  started to cause a commotion. He was telling other guests that he had come up with a strategy for Trump and was trying to get into the president’s private quarters to tell him about it. Some people thought Giuliani may have been drinking too much and suggested to [campaign manager  Bill] Stepien  that he go talk to the former New York mayor. Stepien, [chief of staff  Mark] Meadows  and [senior adviser]  Jason Miller  took Giuliani down to a room just off the Map Room to hear him out. Giuliani went state by state asking Stepien, Meadows, and Miller what they were seeing and what their plan was. “What’s happening in Michigan?” he asked. They said it was too early to tell, votes were still being counted and they couldn’t say. “Just say we won,” Giuliani told them.

Same thing in Pennsylvania. “Just say we won Pennsylvania,” Giuliani said. Giuliani’s grand plan was to just say Trump won, state after state, based on nothing. Stepien, Miller, and Meadows thought his argument was both incoherent and irresponsible. “We can’t do that,” Meadows said, raising his voice. “We can’t.

Then Fox News  called  Arizona for Joe Biden and, well, you know how the rest of the story goes.

Giuliani pushed the president to forget about the Arizona call and just say he won—to step into the East Room and deliver a victory speech. Never mind that Meadows had earlier snapped at Giuliani and said the president couldn’t just declare himself the winner.

“Just go declare victory right now,” Giuliani told Trump. “You’ve got to go declare victory now.”

And,  he did !

I think they were all just afraid of breaking any bad news to the old man. 

Donald Trump was told all evening that it was looking good from various reports, insider analysis , etc, so that when the mail in vote started to turn the totals towards Biden, Trump couldnt believe it. 

Every last one of these people who babied Donald Trump to the point where he created his own reality about the election should be dogged until they leave politics forever.

Eric, The Crown Prince of Cringe! 

In the old days they would have locked him away.

The Trumps put him on display like he is a freak...

Does not matter.  It was Eric who told reporters on several occasions concerning US Banks not issuing loans to Trump businesses that they ( the Trumps ) didn't need them because they were "getting their money from Russia."  The honesty of 'the toothy one' is astounding.

First off, one has to know what counting is and how to actually count and it's obvious that Eric and his abacas are short-circuited.
