If the election goes to the Home, Home Democrats are preparing, with Rep. Jamie Raskin, a former constitutional legislation professor, saying “We’ll have each constitutional and statutory device on the desk in preparation for defending the consequence.”
Democrats are attempting to persuade the main social media platforms to take steps to stop false messaging and conspiracy theories from spreading, however thus far the steps introduced do “nothing however profit Donald Trump and Republicans who’re making an attempt to sow confusion and misinformation,” in keeping with Priorities USA head Man Cecil. “They are not doing sufficient and what they’re doing is late within the recreation.”
CNN stories, “Whereas plans are being drawn up, there are considerations that Democrats merely will not have the messaging horsepower to counter Trump’s bully pulpit—and Twitter account—if he claims victory on election night time earlier than states are known as or claims that Democrats stole the election.”
Two issues right here: Conventional media retailers like CNN can have a factor or two to say about how that goes down. The integrity of the elections isn’t one thing to either side, guys, and everybody at CNN and NBC and ABC and CBS and USA At present and freakin’ ESPN and Individuals journal must be prepared for that.
Second, Donald Trump does not have the biggest Twitter account on the market. He’s sixth. In first place? Former President Barack Obama. The third, fourth, seventh, and eighth largest accounts belong to Katy Perry, Rihanna, Taylor Swift, and Lady Gaga, none of whom are Trump supporters, let’s say. So it’s not a on condition that Trump owns the Twitter response—if the folks with the platforms are prepared and keen to talk out to defend an election consequence that Trump doesn’t like.
However most of all, the most effective and most necessary approach to preserve Trump from undermining the legitimacy of the elections is for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to win so convincingly that nobody however the bitterest of the Trump dead-enders can probably consider him when he says the election was stolen from him. We have to crush him into the mud, electorally talking. That’s the purpose right here, the way in which to each keep away from a lot of the ugliness he hopes to unleash on us and to have 2021 be a productive yr that begins to undo the injury Trump has finished up to now.
