Watching the ridiculous but dangerous final gasps of the dictator wannabe:

I watched our president-elect today and even though he had a cough and cold (please God, don’t let it be Covid) he was so reassuring. It’s going to be nice to have a sane man in office again — and him being a good man is just icing on the cake.

It’s a pity Trump is determined to make his final days as calamitous for the country as he possibly can. I can’t fathom why so many Republicans have gone along with him on his mission to thwart the voice of the people and to cause as much harm as he can on his way out. They’ve inflicted upon themselves grave damage.

It’s time he told his raving followers to stand down. Right now. If he had a care in the world for this country, he’d put aside his massive ego and his gigantic narcissism and tell the idiots with the guns and the threats to just stand down.

They’d do it if he asked. They would also do any terrible thing he asks, lawful or not. It’s time he pulled his idiot followers out of the fire and told them to stand down before the nation has to put them down. And it will. We will, if it becomes necessary for the safety of the rest of us. I believe, under Joe Biden, only so much terrorizing of the citizenry will be tolerated.
