However wait! There’s extra! That occurred after one other “skilled,” a Dr. Christos Makridis who apparently publishes a lot in right-wing shops was completely skewered by one other professor, Jonathan Rodden of Stanford. “Dr. Makridis features a dialogue of provisional ballots in Mercer County,” Rodden instructed the court docket. “It’s tough to know what Dr. Makridis is likely to be referring to, since there isn’t a county referred to as Mercer in Georgia.”

And these are the arguments coming from Trump’s “actual” legal professionals, not those crammed into Rudy’s clown automobile! It is virtually even higher than Hugo Chavez rising from the grave to steal the 2020 election for Joe Biden. Nicely, virtually. There are nonetheless 18 active cases in 6 states. Not all of them are as hilarious as these, however they’re all just about nuisance fits, none of which might truly end in altering the vote totals and overturning it.

That is the place the hilarity ends, although. The authorized case, in any state, is a complete loser for Trump. He is aware of it, Giuliani knows it and has all however admitted it in court docket and in interviews. The technique is to foment chaos, to try to disrupt and delay certification within the states and check out someway to both get Trump-friendly electors to overthrow the election outcomes or impasse and throw it to the Home. That is the place Republicans have nearly all of state delegations.

We’re within the midst of a coup attempt that two highly effective Michigan Republicans are taking part in, assembly with Trump to speak about the right way to steal the state for him. As batshit as Rudy’s Thursday press convention was, it was a direct message to the rabid and harmful Trump mob—from communists to antifa—to get them primed to behave. The risk to state Republican lawmakers is hardly refined.
