I think Donald Trump has been binge-watching Glengarry Glen Ross again. He’s reliving Al Pacino’s monologue as Ricky Roma. Can someone please tell the president-elect that he has won the election?
In a series of tweets on the Sunday after Thanksgiving, Trump is monologuing to re-explain the many hypothetical ways he could have won, even if the Electoral College was not used. It’s a classic example of selling past the close.
There’s a time to react to pointless and stupid gestures like the Wisconsin recount, and a time to leave things well alone. Trump’s obsessive compulsion to respond makes him incapable of discerning those times.
I can only hope that once he enters the White House, someone will physically remove his smartphone from his hands, and keep it locked up for four years. The man should not be allowed to tweet without supervision.
