Donald Trump is not capable of accepting defeat. The twice impeached one-term President sustained a massive public narcissistic injury when he lost to Joe Biden in the popular and electoral vote. Somehow, conservatives thought voting for a former reality show star with zero political experience would be a good idea, so here we are.
Wisconsin Republican house speaker Robin Vos told a reporter on Tuesday that Trump called him "within the last week" to overturn the 2020 presidential election that took place 622 days ago.
The exchange occurred after the Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled absentee ballot drop boxes in the state illegal. Trump can't seem to comprehend that that ruling is not retroactive. This would be funny if it weren't tearing our country apart.
"It's very consistent," Vos said of the call in an interview. "He makes his case, which I respect. He would like us to do something different in Wisconsin. I explained it's not allowed under the constitution. He has a different opinion, and then he put out the tweet. So that's it."
Trump wrote on his social media site Truth Social, "Looks like Speaker Robin Vos, a long-time professional RINO always looking to guard his flank, will be doing nothing about the amazing Wisconsin Supreme Court decision."
RINO, meant to be a criticism, stands for "Republican in name only."
"The court case as you read it does not go back and say what happened in 2020 was illegal," Vos said. "It just says going forward it can't happen."
Trump continued saying, "The Democrats would like to sincerely thank Robin, and all of his fellow RINOs, for letting them get away with 'murder.'"
And Trump isn't going to let it go. On Truth Social just yesterday, he wrote:
So what's Speaker Robin Vos doing on the Great Wisconsin Supreme Court Ruling declaring hundreds of thousands of Drop Box votes to be illegal? This is not a time for him to hide, but a time to act! I don't know his opponent in the upcoming Primary, but feel certain he will do well if Speaker Vos doesn't move with gusto. Robin, don't let the voters of Wisconsin down!
I can't understand why conservatives have put everything on the line for this mentally unstable man. I'll never get it.
