Trump signals what he is doing by accusing others of the same behavior. “Stop the steal” is a slogan that encapsulates this, as the evidence is very clear, Trump wants to steal the election, so he projects his desire into the mouths of his perceived enemies, period.
“This is a case where they’re trying to steal an election, they’re trying to rig an election, and we can’t let that happen.”
But that was EXACTLY what Trump planned and tried to engineer, both by subterfuge and by inciting a violent uprising.
“I’ve been talking about mail-in voting for a long time. It’s really destroyed our system. It’s a corrupt system and it makes people corrupt, even if they aren’t by nature, but they become corrupt. “
Of course Trump claims corruption on the part of others, especially when none is alleged by anyone else, and why? Because he and his cabinet have been exposed as the single most corrupt administration in USA history.
“Millions and millions of people voted for us tonight, and, uh, a very sad group of people is trying to disenfranchise that group of people, and we won’t stand for it. We will not stand for it.”
But note that it was Trump and republicans who tried mightily to disenfranchise democratic or black voters in several states. Again, if it is an accusation coming out of Trump’s mouth, he is signaling his own intentions or behaviors by accusing others of it.
“The damage has already been done to the integrity of our system, and to the Presidential Election itself. This is what should be discussed!”
Yes indeed, damage has been done but by whom? Not those he accused of it, but by Trump himself.
“We have crowds that nobody’s ever had before, it’s insane and I think you can agree. It’s — it’s been incredible. “
Okay, this one is true. It is literally not credible…
“I ended up with 306 [Electoral Votes]. That was a good number. 223 to 306 and that was a big number.” This is a reversal of the usual, where he attributes to himself the facts that are true about his opponent. Goes with the territory…
So Stop the Steal? I say, who is stealing from whom?!
