The New York Post has put out a piece rebuking President Donald Trump’s recent actions, telling the commander-in-chief that he needs to “give it up” and stop “cheering for an undemocratic coup.”
The Sunday night editorial piece said, “Mr. President, its time to end this dark charade.”
Apparently, the folks over at the NY Post aren’t at all concerned about the very real possibility that Democrats and other radical leftists have actually committed widespread voter fraud and stolen a presidential election.
These incidents need to be fully investigated to determine whether or not there was significant fraud that negatively impacted the outcome of the election. If it legitimately turns out that isn’t the case, then sure, the president needs to move on.
But the thing is, there’s a ton of evidence to support the president’s claims of voter fraud. It seems the NY Post is ignoring all of that.
The New York Post emphasized Trump’s repeated losses from recounts in Georgia and Wisconsin and lambasted those who have filed lawsuits and alleged widespread voter fraud, calling Sidney Powell “a crazy person.”
Trump’s campaign and his Republican allies have suffered dozens of defeats in courts across the country, from circuit courts all the way up to the Supreme Court. Earlier in December, Attorney General William Barr said the Justice Department has not found any evidence of widespread voter fraud. In the wake of those defeats, Trump has embarked on a second course of action: attempting to persuade state legislatures to overturn the results of the election and appoint pro-Trump electors to the Electoral College — inviting key state legislators from battleground states to lunches that don’t always appear on the president’s daily schedule.
The New York Post says Trump is “obsessed” with Jan. 6, when Congress is scheduled to certify the Electoral College vote and confirm Joe Biden’s win.
“You have tweeted that, as long as Republicans have ‘courage,’ they can overturn the results and give you four more years in office,” the paper wrote. “In other words, you’re cheering for an undemocratic coup.”
“We understand, Mr. President, that you’re angry that you lost,” the editorial went on to say. “But to continue down this road is ruinous. We offer this as a newspaper that endorsed you, that supported you: If you want to cement your influence, even set the stage for a future return, you must channel your fury into something more productive.”
Again, the big problem here is that there is more at stake than a second term for President Trump. The very foundation of our republic will crumble if massive widespread voter fraud is allowed to determine the outcome of this presidential election.
This will erode public trust in the election system and will reinforce fraudulent activity in the future. We can’t afford that at this time in our republic.
