Even though he’s been out of office for five months now, failed, one-term former President Donald Trump continues to try and live in the past, a sort of alternate reality where he’s still president and even if he technically isn’t, he should be because he won the 2020 presidential race only to have it stolen from him.
Of course, the same thing could have been said about the 2016 election, which Trump only won thanks to massive foreign interference from Russia, Russian hackers, the Kremlin, and Vladimir Putin.
And yet, just this last weekend in North Carolina, CNN reports, Trump was back to spreading what has now become known as the “big lie” about how he won even though the numbers show he lost decisively:
Donald Trump is trying to save American democracy? That’s rich! No one has done more to turn this country into an autocracy where one man is allowed to rule by fiat and destroy anyone who dares disagree with him.
All of Trump’s talk about how the U.S. electoral process cheated him is greatly appreciated and heartily applauded in totalitarian states such as China and Russia, according to Frank Figliuzzi, the former assistant director for counterintelligence at the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Figliuzzi told MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace:
Of course, Figliuzzi is right. We have a former U.S. president working as a mole (deliberately or accidentally) for China and Russia in an effort to cast doubt on the American system of government, free and fair elections, and the most basic foundations of our republic. He might just as well be on their payroll, and for all we know, he is!
Hopefully, prosecutors will put Trump behind bars before he can do even more damage by running for president yet again in 2024. But if they don’t, we need to prepare ourselves for the maelstrom that awaits us.
They’re grinning from ear to ear in Beijing and Moscow because they’re on the verge of destroying the United States without having to fire a single shot.
