My brief commentary about the U.S. Supreme Court rejecting the latest attempt by President Donald Trump and his supporters to overturn the 2020 Presidential election…
The Associated Press (AP) announced Friday evening that the U.S. Supreme Court rejected a lawsuit backed by President Donald Trump to overturn Joe Biden’s election victory, ending a desperate attempt to get legal issues rejected by state and federal judges before the nation’s highest court and subvert the will of voters.
Reuters had this to say in their opening paragraph:
The U.S. Supreme Court on Friday rejected a long-shot lawsuit by Texas and backed by President Donald Trump seeking to throw out voting results in four states, dealing him a likely fatal blow in his quest to undo his election loss to President-elect Joe Biden.
Thank you U.S. Supreme Court. Our system worked.
As for Trump, he told us his thoughts in a series of Tweets:
So, you’re the President of the United States, and you just went through an election where you got more votes than any sitting President in history, by far – and purportedly lost. You can’t get “standing” before the Supreme Court, so you “intervene” with wonderful states…..
….that, after careful study and consideration, think you got “screwed”, something which will hurt them also. Many others likewise join the suit but, within a flash, it is thrown out and gone, without even looking at the many reasons it was brought. A Rigged Election, fight on!
The Supreme Court really let us down. No wisdom. No courage!
The Montana Attorney General, Tim Fox, and Montana’s lone U.S. Representative, Greg Gianforte, backed the lawsuit. They are both Republicans. Steve Bullock, Montana’s current Democratic Governor, urged the court to reject the lawsuit.
One thing that has been good for me during this Trump term is finding out who among my family and friends were dumb enough to believe in him.
I’ve lost friends over my dislike of Trump because some people cannot separate politics from friendship. I imagine it’s the same for many all across the fruited plains. I’m better off without them in my life.
The bottom line is we are just about 40 days away from getting rid of this dark spot in U.S. history. Who knows what will happen in these 40 days, so keep alert.
Above all else, stay thirsty my friends…
