President-Elect Joe Biden, Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris – a Nation Saved
Trump’s Refusal to Concede – Does it Matter Really?
Cristal M Clark
To concede is but a formal affair, it is not necessary and speaks volumes to the level of Donald J Trump’s mental health, in that it more than without effort shines the spotlight on Trump’s narcissism. His inability to accept reality, to accept facts, to accept that he lost. Forgive me here but was it not Trump and his supporters that laughed at the Democrats losing back in 2016? Did they not take to the streets, the air and everywhere they could to inform everyone having issues with Trump winning that they needed “get over it, stop acting like babies?” Yes I recall it all very well.
Joe Biden will take office still the same regardless of whether or not Trump concedes here. Some in Trump’s circle have said that we just need to give Trump time, while others published a fake newspaper front page, and the rest are running loose like cannon balls rolling about on a ship in a storm and spreading disinformation, lies and complete false information all about social media and in the news in an attempt to discredit the results of the election. In fact, some staunch supporters in the GOP insist that even with the Trump loss he will still be a huge influence within the GOP after he leaves office. Words I would highly recommend they reconsider here, for the people have spoke, and if you doubt for one second that we will not send anyone who supports the rhetoric of Trump into hiding, think again. We asked for a change, a more tolerant and kinder change. Take that to heart.
But perhaps what most likely stings Trump even more here is the realization that he is not beloved as much as he sells it off as. The cherry on top has been the sheer amount of world leaders who came forward with gratitude and happily congratulated President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice President-Elect, Kamala Harris. In fact in some parts of the world, people took to the streets as American’s did in celebration of our newly elected President and Vice President, headlines splashed papers stating that a sigh of relief was heard throughout the world at the announcement, here in the US people took to the streets in celebration, dancing, crying in relief, Trump supporters took to the same streets in an attempt to goad Biden supporters into a row of some sort and were met with quite the opposite. Again, that speaks very loud volumes.
For those in the GOP who insist that if Trump concedes without a fight the Republican party will never see another president in office, I highly beg to differ. The rhetoric, the hatred, the racism and intolerance, those ill advised sentiments are fleeting, and will continue to do so in epic proportions. The point is, those views are no longer tolerable, Trump is what has damaged your party so. The republican party used to stand for the working class, used to fight tooth and nail for us, Trump made a mockery of that and a laughing stalk of the US presidency. All for what? Personal greed and gain. Should he continue the petty squabble and fail to concede, it will in fact cause irreversible damage to the republican party.
Those that support Trump, did so because they effectively wanted change, those changes were to better to be to the good of the nation, what Trump did was turn the tables and highlight the racist sentiments that run deep through this country and he exposed that to the entire world. He opened a wound that leaves every single person in this nation vulnerable.
Trump is in complete denial now that the cat is out of the bag in that the majority in the US showed up in record numbers to oust him from office, knowing that he is not, was not, nor will ever be, qualified nor fit to be the president of the United States of America. Pelosi might want to ready that insurance policy should Trump attempt to take his rage out in ways that would damage our country and/or cause further damage to our already tattered relationships with world leaders. Trump and his brood should start packing instead of trying to stir up trouble.
And for President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice President-Elect, Kamala Harris, I have no doubt that we will see great success as they take office, however 4 years is far from enough time to heal and mend a nation that is so deeply divided and damaged. Let us hope that they start the job of that off right by doing us right, being good to our nation, respecting everyone, being good to other nations and world leaders instead of playing games, lying, living in their own reality, ignoring science in the face of a pandemic, ruining our thriving economy and, simply not hearing or caring about the voice of the people in this nation. In other words, don’t try to sell us out for your own selfish reasons like Donald J Trump has done.
