Two Different Worlds 0

At The Denver Post, Ian Silverii contrasts reality and the MAGA Fantasy Land. A snippet:

In reality, the coronavirus pandemic has taken the lives of over 260,000 Americans and over 2,800 Coloradans.

(snip)

In the alternative reality, which we’ll call the “MAGA universe”, COVID-19 is a hoax, a conspiracy, the “China Plague” or just another common cold. The hospitals aren’t overflowing, there are more than enough ICU beds and nurses and doctors to go around, and Americans aren’t going to let politicians tell us we can’t be with our families.

Brian Greenspun explores the scam. A snippet (emphasis added):

Without a modicum of proof or even a hint of meaningful vote discrepancies, Trump’s Keystone Kops are running all over the land trying to convince the court, any court, that there is some there there. But it ain’t working.

What also isn’t working is this American democracy, which used to pride itself as the one country on earth that exalts the peaceful and orderly transfer of power from one president to the next. It isn’t working because public servants who take an oath to uphold the Constitution — those folks would be the Republicans in the U.S. Senate who used to care about such things as our democratic norms — are AWOL.

A federal judge has issued an injunction against the attempt to reframe the Voice of America as the voice of Trump.

Afterthought:

My first thought was that these folks don’t understand the concept of the rule of law, but I think that’s wrong. I don’t think they understand the concept of law, at least not as something that applies to them.

It’s as if Trump has released a flock of political Jeffrey Epsteins loose upon the polity.

At NJ.com, Luke Elliot explains Trump and the Trumpettes verify the unverifiable. A nugget:

To the cult of Trump, it does not matter that Trump lost the popular election and electoral votes. Since there is no objective truth in the cult, vetting is unnecessary. Make a claim, and then make up examples to support it. Cult Trump logic distorts the truth, but to many, the claims seem real because the people making them are powerful.
