Our National Embarrassment-in-Chief Continues His Childish Temper Tantrum

President Donald Trump has publicly disengaged from the battle against the coronavirus at a moment when the disease is tearing across the United States at an alarming pace.

Trump, fresh off his reelection loss to President-elect Joe Biden, remains angry that an announcement about progress in developing a vaccine for the disease came after Election Day. And aides say the president has shown little interest in the growing crisis even as new confirmed cases are skyrocketing and hospital intensive care units in parts of the country are nearing capacity.

Things are getting worse.

But Trump cannot find it within himself to do his job. No, he just sits there in the White House, scarfing down junk food, rage-tweeting about imaginary voter fraud and only showing his face to play golf.

Meanwhile, the adults whose job it is to monitor security say that there was no problem with this election:

Election security officials have no evidence that ballots were deleted or lost by voting systems in this month’s U.S. election, two security groups said in a statement released on Thursday by the lead U.S. cybersecurity agency.

“There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised,” the groups said about the Nov. 3 election won by Joe Biden, a Democrat.
...
The groups, the Election Infrastructure Government Coordinating Council Executive Committee (GCC) and the Election Infrastructure Sector Coordinating Council (SCC), said the election was the most secure in U.S. history.

“While we know there are many unfounded claims and opportunities for misinformation about the process of our elections, we can assure you we have the utmost confidence in the security and integrity of our elections and you should too,” the groups said in the statement released by the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA).
....
Top U.S. cybersecurity official Christopher Krebs, who worked on protecting the election from hackers, has told associates he expects to be fired, sources familiar with the matter told Reuters.

White House officials have asked for content to be edited or removed that pushed back against numerous false claims about the election, including that Democrats are behind a mass election fraud scheme. CISA officials have chosen not to delete accurate information.

The truth doesn't matter to Republicans, only appeasing the elderly toddler who is the head of their party. They're cowering in a corner as Trump drives this country into a ditch, all because he is so, so consumed by his case of butthurt.

Republicans are showing their loyalty runs to their party, not to their country.

And, Gentle Reader, if you are following Trump on this, the same is true of you.
